Kristen's B-day and Halloween

It's fun having a sibling with a birthday on Halloween. That means that for sure we always have a family party and get-together on Halloween. I love the traditions that we've had. We always used to have soup and breadsticks, and we'd have to eat dinner before we could go trick-or-treating. Dad would always play Ray Bradbury's The Halloween Tree all night for us to listen to. I still only really know the beginning of that story....This past Halloween was no exception; all of us that live close got together and we had a dinner for Kristen. It was a fun night with everyone. Happy Birthday Kristen!!

Here is our fun group.

Kristen doesn't really like cake all that much, so instead we had a birthday pie for her. Here she is with her birthday pumpkin pie.

And opening some of her presents.

And here's Ethan and Julia in their cute Spider Man and Pilot costumes.

Mr. Incredible

And Mr. Incredible again with his Lady Bug...(thanks for the costume Kajsia! :) )

Cute pictures Char! Do you have a copy of The Halloween Tree? You'll have to listen to the end!

FUN! I'm just sad I wasn't there. I was telling Rosie how strange it was to see the family fitting at her kitchen table now! SO small! :( We're excited for Christmas and hope mom and dad's house will be bursting at the seams!
