Well Halloween did happen at the old homestead. We had our annual trunk-or-treat at my dad's ward. This is tradition. And even though my dad had just gotten home from a 2 1/2 week vacation minutes before it started, we HAD to go. So here we are:
You'll notice that Tobe didn't wear his Thomas the Train costume. He would not dress up and even though "everyone else is wearing a costume" he wanted nothing to do with it. He's Tobe!!
Josh and Megan came to my dad's house for Halloween and we took the kids trick-or-treating. Again Tobe wouldn't wear a costume.
But Jane wore hers proudly and loved all the comments she received. She said, "Mom, everyone loves.........me!" She's too funny.
After trick-or-treating I distributed my kids to their designated babysitters (thanks Dawn and Ashley) because I had to catch a 7:00 flight the next morning to Indiana. Brett had found a house but was afraid to make the final decision without my approval. So I flew out Saturday afternoon. It is a beautiful house. We put an offer in and are awaiting their decision. (Buying a house is just as stressful as selling. I don't do well with anticipation.) Here is the link to the house. If they take our offer we could close on it in about 2 weeks:):)
It has been fun to see Brett. I hadn't seen him in over 2 weeks so I am glad I came out here. He had tickets to the Indiana Pacers game and the Indianapolis Colts game. I keep asking him if Indiana will be as fun when we all get out here and real life begins. Every time we've been here together it's been a relaxing and fun vacation. He reassures me it will:)
