Halloween 2010

Well, Halloween 2010 brought about a big change for our family. This year Brock was in sixth grade and he officially deemed himself too old to go trick-or-treating. I have to admit that I wasn't quite ready for that! So, this year he chose to go to dinner at Takaoka with my parents while we took Kenzie trick-or-treating. I know he had a great time, so I guess it was all good. Kenzie had been pretty low key about the costume thing this year, and several days before Halloween she said she wanted to be a football player. Well, that was easy enough! We went to Willshire, as we always do, to go trick-or-treating with cousins. It was a windy, but beautiful day and the kids all had fun. Afterwards, we enjoyed soup and snacks at Cindy's house and then we all went to the festival at the park and watched our nieces perform with the band. We finished the evening by picking up Brock and then we went to the Chile's house to watch the Buckeye's game. It was a great Halloween!

Our two oldest nieces are in the drumline for Parkway's band. The drumline decided to go as gnomes. Alyssa decided not to go, but Amber is the last gnome in the blue plaid shirt. I thought it was a cute idea and they seemed to have a great time.

On Halloween weekend Brock had a little injury at the football game. I had gone with my mom, Kenzie, and one of her little friends to Lima and the boys had gone to the last Cougar football game. As we were walking out of the mall, my phone rang and Chuck said, "Um, we have a little problem....we are on our way to the ER." Brock had fallen when he was "walking" up the stairs and cut his lip open. I asked him later if he was running and he said, "not really, I was just walking really fast." Ooooookkkkkaaayyy. LOL! Anyway, here are a couple of pictures so we don't forget Brock's first stitches.
