Happy Halloween!

Love Pebbles and Bam Bam

PS: there are lots more pics to come. blogger is just not coopererating for now.

Autumn Fest

Saturday night church had their annual Autumn Fest. It had an 80's theme this year so Hillary and I rocked that while the kids wore their originally planned costumes. We had a fun time playing games and visiting with our friends, but the highlight of the evening for the kids was definitely the bouncy house with Mike.

CSI Hawaii

A crime was committed last night in our kitchen and our poor pumpkin is now the victim of a violent and heinous act.

Girls Wear Pretties and Boys Wear Hats

I think HRB has figured it out--he used to ask for pretties when i'd put them in Nora's hair, since Daddy has been home though he's figured out that boys wear hats. He asks for one most days and likes to put them on himself--that's why they are always on too high or too low or sideways or just never know.

Don't Catch the Sicky

the origin is unknown and really quite irrevalent at this point but first it was Holden, then the Momma (me), the Sister Norabird, and now it looks to be attacking Auntie Hill...Friend Jack and Daddy you guys better watch out!

Here's Holden and Mike on Sunday:
- even though the logic is off--I can't really miss Sunday's since I teach--Holden was sick so he stayed home as to not spread the sickies to the rest of the church while the healthy parent, Daddy, stayed home to take care of him. Sick parent (me again), took healthy child, Nora, to church. When we got home, Daddy and Holden were curled up watching the world series on the couch. There's some serious bonding time involved with the sickies--we call that a silver lining :)

and notice our stuffed kitty: also named Ollie for its resemblance to the real Oliver. Stuffed Ollie happens to be a lot more loveable. ;) Thanks Nana.

Sunny Beach Day

Finally! This Saturday we went to Ko'Olina and it was a beautiful day. Only thing....momma forgot the beach bag in the garage. Yep. I'm Serious. So I dropped off Aunite Hill and the kiddos and beelined back to the house to get our stuff.

Meanwhile, Holden and Jack sat very nicely and played with the sand toys and each other--sweet boys. i just love this pic of Jack
Jack really enjoyed the water today--the lagoons are the perfect place to go because there are no waves to scare the kiddos
Jack was a funny boy and crawled on his hands and knees through the water

Nora, as always stayed close by--but enjoyed playing with her buckets at the water's edge

and although i don't have any pictures--Holden played great for most of the time at the beach running in and out of the surf--he loves to chase the water.

Family Date Night

Last Saturday we had family date night at a pizza parlor we found nearby. These kind of places are few are far between--think a mix between CiCi's and Uno's. It was okay although by the way we ate it you woulda thought we loved it ;)

Cloudy Beach Day

It seems lately every time i have tried to go to the beach its been cloudy--hence my white skin. Still cloudy beach days can be nice too--as long as it doesn't rain. Of course the kids don't even notice--they had fun playing with each other and hanging with the Sweatland/Barlow Clan.

jack and nora play in the castle

although Jack had been trying to hug Nora all most men, he acted like he didn't want it when she finally agreed

we also climbed some rocks to look for crabs--there were no crabs but the climbing was pretty fun

even Nora liked it!

(just FYI: Bruce and Christi are Hillary's parents and Trent is her brother. He lives here in HI too)
