Oh Ethan, you are soooo funny!

After Ethan got home from school he and I headed out for some errands. At his latest book fair at school we picked up the book "Diary of a Wimpy kid" which had been highly recommended by one of his good friends. So we decided to try it out. Anyhoo, today while we were out he was talking about it and kept referring to it as "Diarrhea of a Wimpy kid". After he repeated it a couple of times I realized what he was actually saying. So, of course I asked him "Are you saying Diarrhea?". And he looked at me a little puzzled and said "Yes." I tried to correct him and after completely failing numerous times I gave up. It was pretty funny watching Ethan try to assure me that it was in fact "Diarrhea of a Wimpy kid". I wonder if when he has finished the book he'll be upset that diarrhea was never mentioned?! LOL.

Halloween has come and gone!

It wouldn't quite be Halloween if there wasn't a party at the Wolffs! Even though we are very new to the area and only know a handful of people at church, somehow we ended up with a full house. Chad dressed up as Dr. Dreamy, myself as a lady bug, Edyn as a kitty kat and Ethan a zombie. This was for Friday night as Saturday brought a completely different lineup.

We had such a great time that I was glad we had decided to throw one even though we didn't think there would be anyone showing up. We played halloween jeopardy, Halloween sound bites, and pumpkin bowling in the garage just to name a few. Oh, and the food! So yummmmmmy! The food you see was only the half of it! Uggghhhhh, time to hit the gym hard core again.

On Saturday we had a baptism for Ethan's friend in the early afternoon after which we raced home to change into our costumes for trunk-or-treat at the church. Chad was Al Capone (he left his tommy gun in the car), myself as his little sidekick, Ethan a soldier, and Edyn was back into her bumblebee costume. Hmmmmm, I look really weird with a short black bob of a haircut. Thank goodness it's only a wig!

After trunk-or-treat we headed out to the the neighborhood for some good ole' fashioned trick-or-treating and did my kids ever load up! In total they ended up with 12 pounds of candy, and we really weighed it! What am I going to do with 12 pounds of candy?! This morning I hid it but apparently I didn't hide it good enough as it only took seconds for my children to find it. Actually, I'm not really too worried about them, it's me I'm worried about! Hope everyone had a fun Halloween!

The following picture was taken just before we left to go to our ward trunk-or-treat. Edyn had first put on her witch costume and after I had finished her makeup she looked in the mirror and tears started to appear. She kept saying "I'm not cute!". Chad took her outside to take some pictures of her and she just wasn't a happy camper. We took her back inside where she changed into her bumblebee costume and the tears disappeared. I don't know, as I look at this picture she couldn't have been more wrong about her appearance. But then again, I'm a biased mommy.
