Three Kids & Grampa

We've seen my dad a good bit in the last couple weeks due to unfortunate circumstances. Ms. Gail passed away on Wednesday, letting go after a long fight with cancer. We have missed her so much during these past difficult months, and will miss her so much in the days to come, but it was good to see her and get to say goodbye. In the middle of all of this, however, we somehow did get a remarkably good picture of the three children with Grampa. We love you so much, Grampa.

Happy Babey Mommy!

(This is Millie.)  I love it when Kira concocts a master plan and it actually works out!  Today she dreamt up a surprise party for me to celebrate Baby #4.  She made invitations for Jay and the boys, but they were under strict orders not to let the secret slip!
Then Jay and the boys hid in Kira's room while Kira asked me to look at something in her room.  She gave John a signal from outside and opened the door.  John immediately turned on the party music (Taylor Swift, obviously).
 There was a banner and even party games!
 The finale was a Taylor Swift dance party!
Sometimes it's pretty great being a mom to these three.

Halloween 2016

For the third year in a row, we went across the street to the Martins' house before trick-or-treating.  The first year, it was just Wamsteds and Martins.  By this year, our numbers had grown considerably!  This is just a small smattering of kids below.
Here are our 3 adorable trick-or-treaters: a pirate, a black cat, and Luke Skywalker.  (If it looks a little hazy, that's because Matt Martin loves dry ice!  There was a "smoking" cauldron just out of the shot.)
Also, we're having another baby, in case you hadn't heard.  Millie is 17-weeks pregnant today, and everything looks happy and healthy (in that nauseous, exhausted way that pregnancies go).  Managed to capture photographic evidence of the bump with a few costumed children in the background.
