Kerri's Visit with the Kids!

My sister Kerri came in town to visit from Texas a week ago, and I was fortunate enough to get to go to lunch with her! We are definitely busy people, but both left that afternoon knowing that we need to get together more. And we both want our kids to know their cousins! I love visiting with her! It is nice to have another mom to be able to talk to as well! Needless to say, I was delighted that she contacted me about meeting! I wish it was longer, but that is always the case with loved ones. Here are some pictures of the kids at lunch ;)

From left to right: Averi, Gavin, Gianna, and Evelynn

We kind of forgot it was Veteran's Day! Applebee's quickly reminded us!

Again: Averi, Gavin, Gianna, Evelynn

Gavin showing Evelynn some love, all on his own!

LOVED her ensemble!

Averi has some attitude like Evelynn does!

Halloween Part II

I think this is one of the only pumpkin carving pictures Chase would let me capture him in ;)

Just because it's a beautiful picture of my my baby! Sorry, should have handled the red eye...

She couldn't wait to eat it...

And again...she couldn't wait...this is THROUGH the plastic, oh MY!

But at least she likes to share!

Sorry for the massive amount of pictures in the next two posts. Phew, there were apparently TOO many taken for Halloween. That being said, there were lots of events to take capture! We were blessed with free tickets to Trick-or-Treat Street (given to us by my Aunt Ann), which I had always wanted to attend! We followed that up with a GREAT party at the Berry's house ;) Kids came in the beginning, then they were shipped off to have some adult time! It was the MOST fun I had in a LONG time. It was a true treat!

The next day was Fun Night at St. Francis. That is always fun, although too crowded for my crowd-anxiety tastes! It is always fun to have the kids all together (with Mallory as well!).

We came back to carve pumpkins that night...much to Jes's dismay ;) We had never done it! And I didn't want to go ANOTHER year without it!

Halloween was the next night. It was full of visits with family as well as a little bit of trick-or-treating...

Allison made these for us. Didn't she do a fantastic job?! It was a little more time-consuming than I thought it would be!

She had had enough...

She loves to courtsy...and she loves for us to take pictures of her doing it ;)
