Lilypie Fourth Birthday tickers Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers
Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.

When the cat's away...

...the mouse will play!

I'm completely not complaining but of course, after I complained about it in my last post, Korri went to bed (in Finn's room) with only a very mild argument last night. Sheesh!

Anyway, Halloween was great at our house. Finn totally "got" it this year and said a very loud "Trick-or-treat" at every house we went to. Korri was just along for the candy, but she did seemed to enjoy herself.  We could not have ordered more perfect fall weather. The kids played outside in the leaves with Jim before dinner and had a blast. After a short dinner, we were off to visit our neighbors and beg for candy from them. We went to our usual 10-ish houses and then came back. Finn was SO excited to help hand out candy, something he's never even thought about before. Our friend, Cheryl, came over with huge cookies for the kids, which made a huge mess. I'll let the pics speak for themselves (more on our picture website):

Before bed, Finn said he was going to be a mouse again next year! Hmmm...not sure this costume will fit, so we'll see! Maybe Korri went to sleep so much better last night...because she was in a sugar coma. Hmmm...

Oh, and for my yearly punishment, oops, I mean arrangement, Jim and I watched Paranormal Activity 3 last night. Since I've now seen the first two, it was less scary (it follows a very similar formula) but still creepy! Now I'm free from scary movies for another year!
