Fall is here!

Get ready for picture overload!!

Fall is here and along with it comes Halloween.

We kicked off the Halloween festivities with our Church's Youth Costume Party. Kai got wrapped up like a mummy, Andrew got to play bowling with pumpkins, and Ryan got to dress up like a really good friend of ours, Mr. Steve!!

Next, we attended our Church's Fall Festival. The kids got to wear their costumes and play in bounce houses, ride ponies and carnival type swings, and climb rock walls. We were all exhausted after this crazy day.

Next we carved pumpkins. Andrew and I made a cat, and Kai got a "little help" making his bats from our friend Blake.

Last, but certainly not least, was Trick or Treating. Kai dressed up as a Clone Trooper, Andrew was Spider-Man, and Malia was SuperGirl.

We left home confident that tricker treaters would be treated well at our house.

The kids rode in style. Notice the sucker in Malia's hand.... she was one happy girl.

Not even the goblins could keep the kids away from getting candy!

And boy did they make out big!!!!

I think Malia is hooked!

Monthly Update

October has been a little busy for the Roberts' clan.

Ryan and I went to a beautiful wedding for one of my childhood friends.

Kai got to go on his first day trip with the scouts. He went on a nature walk, played games, and participated in a regatta boat contest.

He also got to participate in his school's Storybook Character Pumpkin Contest-- and won an award for the first grade group!!

Then sickness hit and Malia, Andrew, Kai and myself all got up to 104 temps. We just had the really bad fever--so it wasn't too horrible, but it certainly was not fun.

Later in the month Ryan got to preach at church. I am always so proud of him when he gets up and speaks. If you want to hear his sermon, you can access it here.

Malia's accomplishments of the month incude: learning to go up the stairs, standing all by herself, and growing two more teeth. (she is up to four-- two top, two bottom)

(sorry for picture overload-- but she is just so darn cute!!)

Andrew has been his regular silly self this month, but he has gotten really good at saying his nightly prayer. We started a new one and he loves finding it in his bible story book and reciting it along with everyone.

Lord, give us what we need today

And be in all we do and say

Please help us love the way you do

We give back all our love to you
