Anthony, Family, Friends, Holidays, Nicholas
After last Halloween (Star Wars themed costumes & trunks) – I have to admit, we (and the Miller’s) were out of the next ‘epic’ idea. Fine by me. We kept it pretty mild and manageable – but LOTS of activities.
We went to the Halloween Happening at Nicholas’ school (and brought a friend, Jonas, with us)

Family, Friends, Nicholas
I am a bit late posting about our big boys’ birthday – but I didn’t want to skip it, so here goes.
This year we did a little something different. Instead of our normal large house party – we decided to have a small ‘friends only’ [party for Nicholas. He invited 12 friends to come over on a Friday night for “Dinner & a Movie“. Joe & I thought this was a reasonable and do-able plan (serve pizza, eat cupcakes, open presents, watch a movie with popcorn). It was ‘only‘ 3 hours….(eek!!)

Bike rides at Lake Murray – less than 2 weeks after learning to ride a 2-wheeler, AJ was going off sweet jumps on his bike.
Nicholas continues to secure our house from bad guys with his arsenal.
Grandma & Grandpa have stopped by for dinner or a visit throughout the summer.
The preschool Summer Fun program had a fabulous parade & picnic for the 4th of July. Nicholas & the older kids ran a lemonade stand to raise money for the end of the summer party. We were so impressed with how hard NCL was working and trying to sell. He was very intent on selling all the lemonade 😀
Daddy & AJ relaxing on the couch one night.
We spent the 4th of July at Aunt Patty’s pool party. It was a nice afternoon.
We drove out to Santee to see fireworks that night (with a secret east coast visiting friend) and the boys fell asleep on the way home.
We had a family movie day and saw How to Train Your Dragon:2. Always fun to go to the theater.
We met up with dear friends this last week when the Mion’s were in town. Fun to see the kids growing.
