So one of the reasons the kids and I were SUPER excited about moving on October 23rd was that we would be in the US for Halloween!!!  And my sister Megan had one of her awesome Halloween parties that I am always so sad to miss.  I love Halloween!

Here are the kids in their costumes.  I always love a good cowboy costume, and I thought Orrin was the cutest little Indian chief ever!  My goodness my kids are so cute.

 My brother Wyatt, the mad scientist.

Cousins playing games.


We had a good showing of cowboys!

Orrin at the tomahawk-throwing game.  I mean beanbag.  :)

Wyatt throwing his beanbag.

After dinner and games, we took our enormous group of kids trick-or-treating.  It was a nice warm night and it was so much fun!!!  Andrea, Lindsay Ann, and I had our youngest - Oskar and Wyatt only 1-year-old and Natalia and Jack Jack who are 2 and 3 with us while Uncle Wyatt took ALL the rest who were waaayyy too fast for us.  Those littles though were ADORABLE.  Wyatt wouldn't let me hold his bag for him for anything.  It was just so cute and fun.  Thanks Megan if you ever read this!  You're my favorite sister who puts on awesome Halloween parties!!!

What we've been up to at Grandma's house

A little of what we've been up to:


Wyatt looooved riding and when we took him off he said, "up! up!"  :)  Sadly we didn't get a picture of it, but after these pictures were taken I got on Rio and was riding.  I started loping around the corral and then Rio suddenly did this huge stumble, and then hopped for a little bit, and then Brett and Mom told me to get off, so I did, and Rio was holding up his back leg.  Luckily he stopped limping on it after just five minutes or so.  And then I felt good that I hadn't been pitched off.

Helping with Chores

A bunch of grandkids helping Grandpa and Grandma pull weeds in the far pasture.

Started School - Ethne had to get four shots, Jethro one.  Hazel's holding up a five and a two, to show the second first day of fifth grade, and Ethne's second first day of second grade.

Jethro's second day of seventh grade.  He's so handsome. :)

 Talmage trying to hold up a zero and a two.  He goes to afternoon kindergarten.  He didn't start going the same day as the other kids because I can't find his immunization card, so they wouldn't let him.  But then they called me and said if they classify us as homeless, since we're not living in our own residence he could go.  So I said okay.  So now I'm officially homeless.  :)  He sure has a lot more homework now than the none he had in Switzerland.  But luckily he's doing well.  It's a good thing we started learning to read on our own or else he would definitely be behind.  He does great with his math.

More helping with chores - clearing out the garden and yard
