I really like Halloween. Not the scary part but the fun, dressing up and watching your kids get excited part. I love taking them to the pumpkin patch but that didn't happen this year. I think I'm the only one that missed it, though. Here's a Goolsby Halloween retrospective.
Fancy :)

Harris' first Halloween, 2008. He was 10 months old and walking all over the place.

Halloween 2009. Yes, same costume.

Walker at 8 weeks. That doesn't even look like him to me. That is the chubbiest he ever got, I think.

Halloween 2010. Walker had just turned 1, Harris was 2 1/2.

Halloween 2011! They were 3 1/2 and 2. The only pic of Walker is blurry and he's not looking, but did I mention he had just turned two??

There's that dragon costume again. You better believe Hayes will be in it next year. If he fits.....

2012. Love my pumpkins. They are 4, 3, and 8 months.


I need to start getting them dressed about two hours before we actually need to leave the house. I was sweating by the time we got this pic, and we were running way late. Not to worry, there was candy left. Walker hasn't even asked about his candy while Harris has asked about his probably 50 times a day and it usually starts before breakfast. Walker is now on a kick of wearing hats and he's had his eye on Harris' police hat for a few days. Harris guards it with his life. While Harris was in school the other day, this happened.

Walker knew he better enjoy it while he could. Ignore the stain on his shirt, he was eating yogurt in this pic. He wore that shirt the rest of the day. Also, I took Hayes out the other day in a stained sleeper and I didn't even notice till we were headed home. My definition of "getting them ready" has relaxed now that there are three.

In other news, Walker is (mostly) potty trained! Yahoo! I really had no plans to potty train him because the few attempts we made were epic failures but I hit the wall Monday morning. I was just over cloth diapering two kids and he's done awesome!

If anyone is motivated to run a half or full marathon next year, run Chosen. It was the most fun race I've done. It's well organized, big enough to be motivating but small enough to not be a madhouse and the course is beautiful. Best of all, your money goes straight to adoptive familes. What more could you want??

 So, so fun!! Rosey, let's do it again next year!

Tom ran this too but the pics of us are on my phone and not nearby right now. It's hard to take a good pic at o'dark thirty, anyway, so I'll just quit while I'm ahead. I had a lapse in judgement and signed up to run the Rock and Roll half this Sunday. I didn't realize it was a lapse in judgement until I had the worst run ever last Sunday. Here's hoping this Sunday goes better.

Tom and Harris did a 10 mile bike ride this weekend. Harris was SO EXCITED. He rode on a bike that attached to Tom's, so he wasn't solo but he didn't care. He told me his favorite part was the part where you eat. He also told me he wanted to teach the other riders to "raise the roof", but if he took his hands off the handlebars he was afraid he would fall off. That kid is so funny and doesn't even mean to be.

That's it for today.

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
Heb 4:12
