The kids clean up real nice. One of the things that the girls loved was when Aunt Caprise offered to braid their hair. Usually they are doing good if they get a pony tail (I can not even do that).
We have had a very busy November. It began with my family comming together for Uncle Ryan's and Aunt Sveta's Wedding. The kids were excited to see all their cousins. They love playing with them and there are so many to play with now!
On Halloween we took the kids Trick-er-Treating in Uncle Ryan's and Grandma Harper's neighborhood. They had a blast running and ringing doorbells to get candy. We kept trying to get them to slow down and not run through people's yards. This was hard for Haily to do she was so excited. However about the fourth house we went to they finally got the message. The girls were running to the door. Tracy and I were yelling at them slow down and wait when two "Marmaduke" type dogs came running out to say hi to the girls. Sydney and Haily started to scream because the dogs were and big as they were and wanted to sniff them. Ethan did run with his "light saber" to try and protect his sister. I had to carry Haily to two houses after this before she was brave enough to walk herself. By the end of the night she was back to running from door to door. : )
Ethan's had a birthday. He was so excited. He got a bike, this was his big gift. We gave it to him early in the morning but he was not super excited. He kept asking if there was more. Lick for him there was more. He enjoyed his Lego bumblebee transformer and his remote control car. We did try to take his bike out. Unfortunately he got a big gash in his tire and was unable to practice riding after that. We had grandparents come and had cake and ice cream. It turned out to be a good Birthday.

In October Tracy's Brother Joe and his Family came for a visit. The kids enjoyed playing with their cousins and getting to know them. One of the best activities of the visit was decorating cookies. The kids had different frosting and candies to decorate with. They made some real creative cookies and got to eat cookies and candies. Sounds like a win win. It was a great visit.

School has stated for Ethan and Sydney again on the August 15th. Ethan is now a thrid grader and Sydney is a first grader. Sydney was really nervous about being a first grader. She kept asking "what if I don't do good?" I am happy to report she seems to be doing great! Both of them seems to be doing well. Haily is now really bored at home. Tracy tires to get her out of house. The other day when she said family prayer she asked "please bless me and mommy to go shoping today." She unfortuantly for me she likes to shop.

It has been a busy summer for us. The kids have enjoyed every minute. Tracy has tried to keep them busy. Despite the Heat and man has it been hot here in South Carolina! Most Mondays the kids have been going to the park.
Ethan went to cub scout day camp. He had a great time working and having fun. He also had a chance to make a boat and participate in the rain gutter regata. He had a great time.
