So Alan was off from work this entire week and we continued to tackle projects, run errands, have some fun and relax. Basically, taking advantage of having two of us around to do things together and separately with the kids. After picking up the kids from Nana & Grampy's on Sunday from their sleepover (Mommy and Daddy ran some errands and saw The Martian) we came home and played in some leaves. Monday after Caroline got home we headed up to LL Beans to grab the kids some new hats and mittens, with a pitstop at Chipotle. Gotta love when we settle on McD's up in Freeport and she asks if we can stop in Portland for Chipotle. Yes, yes we can!!! The rest of the week was a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Organizing things inside, painting trim outside. Halloween costumes and party planning, etc.
This year it didn't rain and make the leaves fall so they
were nice and crunchy!
George loves to keep his towel on after bath.
He usually goes in his room and reads while his sister
gets her hair dried :)

Speaking of big kids, Caroline reading to us before bed
Sorry buddy, you're still too little!
But Daddy will put you to work anyways :)
On Friday Daddy and George went to morning meeting and
then I picked Caroline up from school. She was so excited since
she had never been a pick up before. I am SO glad I did pick her up!
Just before dismissal she and a friend had a slide incident and the little girl's
head hit Caroline just below the eye leaving a good sized bump and bruise.
She'll be sporting a shiner on picture day. Poor kiddo.
