Well, we dressed David and Wade up in their costumes so we could take some pictures since David was too sick to go trick-or-treating. David was so cranky from not feeling well. There were more boo-hoos than boos at our house tonight. I’m lucky I got any pictures at all. David got this giraffe mask […]

Poor David

Poor David. He’s going to miss Trick-or-Treat this year. He still has a fever this morning. Later this afternoon we’ll dress him up in his costume, if he feels up to it, and take a picture. His grandma did bring him a  bag of candy, so he’ll still be able to get a sugar fix […]


Oink, Oink. Yesterday afternoon Dave and David came in from playing outside, and flopped down on the couch. Dave’s head was in his hands, and he looked miserable. David was particularly whiny.
