Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

Our Saturday....

Today we had several places we wanted to visit, but of course only made it to some of them. We have been looking at a catalog of costumes as well as online...but we told the kids we were going to try a local store first because we thought the outfits would be cheaper, plus we could avoid the shipping charges. So, we went there first. We did find costumes for the three youngest. Logan decided he's creating his own costume this year with some things he has, so that saved us a bit of money...it was still expensive enough though. I picked up a long-sleeved Onesie for the baby last week at Target. It's orange and says "Daddy's under my spell.....". We'll just pair that with some little pants and she'll be set. I would have liked to get her a cute costume too but she'll still be so tiny....and the costumes start at 6m size anyway. Next year....

Corbin will be Darth Vader, Hailey an Indian Girl, and Emma a Pink Fairy. We'll post pictures of them in their costumes when the time comes, though Corbin has been wearing his all afternoon. He really still gets into dressing up, and I love it. ;) Logan is going to be a sort of mis-matched guy, wearing a jester's hat that he's had for a while. I thought that was actually a great idea, and a good use of his creativity.

We also went to the post office to mail a birthday gift to a friend of Hailey's and then to the library. We had movies due, and needed to pick up another week's supply of books as well.

The kids did play some video games for a short while today. Later, Corbin played some football outside with Dad, while Hailey and Logan read some books. Now, Karl is watching a football game, and Corbin is writing his 'book' while watching with his dad. Hailey is still reading...Logan is in his room, presumably reading or playing with his Legos. Emma has just finished her snack, so I need to take her outside for a while to play.

Until later.....
