This is the pirate ship and all the pirates, Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, Wendy, and my screaming son.
Claire was pretty good at posing for me.
Jacob peaking through the window on the pirate ship.
I dared Jared to get a picture of both of them with the pumpkins looking at the camera, he took the dare even though I told him it was impossible. This is the best he got, not too bad actually, they are both looking up, there are pumpkins, and they are saying cheese.

Today I am not thrilled about this, but I can't say I am surprised or that I am devastated. I am trying not to be afraid and to be faithful and hopeful instead, last week at church someone mentioned in their testimony "there is no room for fear in faith" which I believe is true so I am trying to leave behind fears that I have of Obama being our next president. I am going to try to trust in our Father in Heaven, remember to laugh, and also remember that these next four years are going to be such a small moment of time in the eternal perspective. I am also going to try to dwell on the positive, so here is the positive:
-Barack Obama is the first black president, that is historical and inspiring
-Barack Obama is a great speaker, he is motivating and convincing
-The majority of the USA is happy about this president and looking forward to this time
-Proposition 8 passed in California.....REALLY GREAT NEWS!
-Proposition 6 (casino for Ohio) failed in Ohio
I am sure there are more, but I am still working on the positive thing....so, with that said, please pray for our country, please pray for our new president and remember to Love what is coming, because it is coming!

The whole family.
Pebbles and BamBam at the beginning of their trick-or-treating.
A very excited Pebbles and BamBam. They would walk until they spotted a candy bowl at which point they would run and yell "I'm coming, I'm coming, Trick-or-Treat, I'm Coming." It was really funny to watch and sometimes they would linger at each candy bowl after the giving of the candy and the "thank-you" and then they would repeat "trick-or-treat." Jacob also decided that since he was BamBam he needed to hit everything with his club. He started pounding on the sidewalk and then later he declared "Bubba hit car" and he whacked some car on the side of the road...luckily his club is a hollow plastic bat.
