Halloween Happenings

Halloween wasn't hyped up too much this year. I put up zero decorations, and put about zero effort into getting the kids excited about trick or treating or anything of the sort. We didn't even go to a pumpkin patch, or even buy the kids a pumpkin until the day of Halloween. Apparently Houston had experienced a pumpkin shortage, so we ended up with two pretty white pumpkins and called it good. We attended our ward trunk or treat and that was good fun for the kids. Then after that we got to do some trick or treating around the neighborhoor and then called it a night. Abby loved to stay up late to help hand out the candy (and the candy was all the candy her and Mac just got from the church party, she graciously agreed to only get 10 pieces of candy and then give up the rest of her candy in return for a $5 shopping spree in the toy section of her store of choice.)

We actually got a family picture taken. It's quite cute. Dad dressed up as a lumber-jack, Mom was a witch, Abby was a pirate, Mac was buzz-lightyear, and Finn was a chicken.

Aren't we cute????

Life is good for the Houston Wischmeiers. Life has been very good to us indeed.

This is how we roll..

On Saturday mornings Ben wakes up with the kids and then makes a divine morning breakfast. This particular breakfast was the most fun by far.There's nothing quite like crepes stuffed with marshmallows, nutella, peanut butter, bananas and topped off with some chocolate syrup and whipped cream.
So Mac how do you feel about this yummy breakfast????
Warning: After serving your children buckets of sugar for breakfast, they will be climbing walls for the next several hours.

You're silly look

I love this look.
It's the Mama you're silly look.


Abby and I were invited to a girls night out. It was quite cute. I told Abby all about it while reading to her at night, so the next day when she woke up she told her Daddy "You know Dad... tonight is a girl party only.. no boys allowed." She was excited the whole day. We told Dad that we were going to have some serious girl fun, like paint our nails and make bracelets. To which Daddy replied, "Oh yeah well me and the boys are just going to sit around farting and scratching ourselves." Pretty Funny. Abby got a kick out of that.

The party was fun. Abby enjoyed making her bracelet, and getting her nails painted. I think her favorite part was when a boy sneaked into the party and then chased all the girls around with a bat!! I can still hear her screaming. She loved it.

It was fun to spend time with my sweet Abby. I need to do it more often. I Love you Boog.

Sporty Brewster and Buzz-Mac Lightyear

My kids have awesome personalities.

Here's Sporty Brewster (That's a combo between sporty spice and Punky Brewster.) This is how she dresses herself everyday.

Here is Buzz-Mac Lightyear. He likes to wear his Buzz wings all day long... sans clothing!! While running full-speed yelling out "to beyond."

Handy Mac

This is an oldie but goodie. Mac was helping his Dad and Grandpa fix our fence after the Hurricane hit last year.

It warms my heart to know that I have Finn to be this age once too... Where did the time go???
