Andrew has been dethroned....

So tonight the kids were playing with blocks and I remembered a blog post I did a few years back about Andrew titled my architect.  

After a few attempts at tower building Andrew beat his previous record with twenty three blocks....but it was Malia that surprised us all with a tower 25 block tall.

Looks like there is a new architect in the family!!

Andrew is Six!!

Andrew had an awesome birthday celebration this past weekend.

He ate some pizza

He played some video games

He rocked it on ski ball

He hung out with his buddies

He played guitar with a giant rat

He and his dad went crazy in the ticket blaster

He got some cool presents

And he had some delicious fondue.

Andrew is such a cool little kid.  He loves to cuddle up with his mom.  He hates being in a room all by himself.  He loves to wear old man socks.  He likes to talk about God.  He is really good at singing at the top of his lungs in the car.  He can build awesome lego creations.  He loves to dance and fight and bug his siblings.  And he is really good at picking his nose.  I love that little guy.

October Fun

October is one of my favorite months.  It is when we are finally adjusted to going back to school.  The weather is wonderful and the holiday season is still fresh and exciting.

This year one of my friends wanted to carve pumpkins with me and the kids.  I invited a few more people over and we had a really fun carving party.

 I could not get a good shot of all of them, but Kai made a Minecraft Pumpkin, Andrew's was a classic scary face, and Malia and I made a bat.

The next day was Halloween.  

Malia went as Elsa (of course)

Kai was The Scream Ghost.

And Andrew was Rocket Raccoon (look at his sweet little tail)

We walked around our neighborhood and then went over to one of Kai's classmates house, who was having a haunted house.  The kids got to help scare while the parents hung out in the cup-de-sac catching up.

It was a really fun evening.

The next day the kids went though their pounds of candy and filled a sandwich bag with all their favorites.  Then Kai and I went out with 45 and Hope to feed the homeless and gave the rest of their candy away to the people we met.  It was a great way to have fun and give back.
