I turned 45 this year. I'll have more to say about that in another blog post.
I'm sure I've mentioned it before, but strangely, Haven and Katriel share the same birthday. Haven turned 5 and Kat turned 2. So right now in my house we have a 6 year old, a 5 year old, two 3 year olds, and two 2 years olds.
My Haven is now a big boy. He is so funny and handsome and temperamental. He makes me laugh everyday and also sets off my blood pressure like nobody's business. He is so sharp and athletic and did I mention temperamental!!! He LOVES dancing, baseball, practicing his letters, and anything made with a potato. He adores his best friend Grace and his little sister, Kit Kat. He's right in the middle of his height and weight range. He's healthy and happy and doing swell! He does have some sort of odd sleeping habits.

I did have a surge of creative genius when it came to JoJo's costume. As you can see below, he wanted to wear all the costumes. All at the same time. So I had to tone it down a bit for actual trick or treating. We settled on a "court jester". It seemed appropriate. But when I got ready to decorate his face I couldn't find a drop of make up in our house. Those of you who know me in person know that I don't wear make up. Ever. So I hunted around trying to find an alternative. I spied a bottle of calamine lotion and that did the trick.
Hope you holiday was filled with treats as sweet as mine!!!

|We decided it was better JoJo not have a knife so we decorated with stickers instead.|
|And our artist used some paint.|

|Before we ever left the driveway he refused to leave on the chef costume. Luckily this was what he had on underneath it. This shirt says it all!|
