Here we go again!

I bought this cape for part of Ross' totally rad Halloween costume. Just wait for pictures! I'm pretty lucky that I can still pretty much talk my kids into something I want them to be for Halloween. It was fun dressing our little toy up for our entertainment again.
Yes, that's me under the cape. And yes, I'm a dork. Drew and I turned off the lights, put it on, and waited quietly to try to scare the big kids tonight when they got home from soccer. Ross stopped for a minute, and then came over and pulled the hood down. Elizabeth stopped for a minute and said, "MOOOOOM! What are you doing?" She asked me where I got it and I told her I got it because I wanted a cape of my own so I could play superheros with them. She thought I was quite a weirdo before I told her it was for Ross' costume.
Watch out for Mallory - the Grim Reaper.

Our fun grandparents!

Jani, Papa Otto, & only about 1/4 of their grandkids. Aren't big families great?!

Papa Otto & Jani

Elizabeth is pretending she is Jani's baby. Jani was a pretty good sport to play along.

Grandad, Grammy, and half of their rowdies

I'm noticing a pattern. Could the grandparents be signing "PEACE" in hopes of getting a little?
