It's all about the Benjamin

A few weeks ago Ben got a Citizenship award at a school assembly:

He recently became confident riding on two wheels:

And on an unrelated note, I have bangs:

I'm glad I have a place to record this stuff. . .

Our Halloween candy stash is finally dwindling down (I should have just thrown out most of it), and all that candy has made an impression on the kids.

I was asking Benjamin what his favorite candy is (I think it's funny that none of the boys seem to favor anything chocolate- but it works out just fine for me!) and he answered:
Skittles and Starbursters!

The other night I made chicken pillows for dinner and Charlie kept calling them Tootsie Rolls.

And Charlie still occasionally brings up the ward Halloween Party. This was the first year that Alex and Benjamin went through the spook alley, and I think Charlie felt left out. He has told me several times, "I have to go to the spooky alligator."

Halloween 2009

No surprises as to what the boys wanted to be for Halloween. Even Charlie was excited to be "Master Yoda".

These costumes are very appropriate. Very, very appropriate. I didn't get anything put together for myself so I just told people I was a frazzled mom of a newborn for Halloween. Didn't get a picture though.
Benjamin designed the middle one and Alex's is the one on the right.
We tried to get a smile on camera. Why is it so hard?
