We Got Snow!

We got our first snow of the season last night.  I must say, I was not happy about it.  I had to drive north of town for a book club/baby shower meeting in the dark!  I made it there, but was a nervous wreck the whole time.  Lexi wanted to play in the snow, but there was not enough to do anything with before bed time.  We woke up to this beautiful white covering everything.  Lexi asked if she can wear her snow pants to school!  Silly girl!  We are expecting snow again on Thursday and there is no school because of Veteran's Day.  Play day!

I am not looking forward to the cold weather that comes with it, but it sure is pretty!

Little Man Gets a Haircut

Chris has not had a haircut in months.  It was so long, I could put it behind his ears!  Finally, Joe told Chris he needed a haircut.  Chris said not until you cut your hair.  Joe has decided to grow his hair out.  In the 10 years I have known him, he has NEVER let his hair get long!  I must say I really like it.  It is curly, but not kinky.  Everyone has commented on it and said how much they like it.  Anyway, Joe said he wasn't going to cut his har and somehow talked Chris into getting his cut.  Here are some pictures of the handsome little man :)

Aren't they too cute together?

Everyone thinks I have twins now since Chris is getting so tall.

Pumpkin Carving

We didn't get a chance to carve our pumpkins before our trip, so we did it last night.  Better late than never, right?  Joe carved while the kids and I cleaned the pumpkins out and drew faces.

They thought it felt so gross!  The pumpkins were dried out, so there was not much inside.  They have no idea!

Brainstorming what their face was going to look like.

Aren't they cute?!

We had such a busy weekend.  We were in Nebraska visiting family and arrived home in time to eat dinner and go trick-or-treating!  The kids had a lot of fun and we had great weather!  We had Belle, Batman, Amelia Earhart and a Lumberjack.

We had a meltdown towards the end of the evening, but lack of sleep does that to you!  And not to mention being in a car for 8 hours!  They did good.  Lexi said Halloween is now her favorite holiday :)

Nebraska vs. Missouri

Saturday was a big game for the Nebraska Cornhuskers.  Joe is a very big fan!  He and his Dad had tickets to see the game.  One of his sisters does a big tail-gating party for every home game.  While Joe and Bob were at the game, the kids and I were outside tail-gating.  Here are some pics of the fun!
Taren, Laray and I dressed up as Nebraska coaches for Halloween.

Joe and I.  It was a very nice set up.  2 tents, chairs, beer, lots of food, TV's and even a porta potty just for us!

Inside the stadium.  See how close they were?  2 rows back.  Lucky guys!

Look at that grin!  Joe got a bit of a sun burn, but he didn't mind.  Nebraska won!!!

Family in Nebraska

Joe and Lexi both had a 4 day weekend, so we decided to take a trip to Nebraska to visit family.  We had not been able to get there in about a year and a half, so it was time.  We were able to make it to Hastings and Lincoln and see everyone.  We got a bunch of great family photos.
