Photo Gallery

Just a temporary page until I have time to do some work on the website...
Click photo to see the larger version. I'll try to work on a bettery gallery/slideshow later, but at least they're up!

What we've been up to in October 2008:

On Tuesday, October 15, Karin and Anna auditioned for "The Princess and the Pea." Rehearsals ran Wednesday - Saturday morning, and then they had two shows on Saturday. It was great! Karin had several lines (and songs) and Anna had a line, and a very cute dance. :) It was certainly not a version of the story we'd ever heard before ;)

Instead of the usual Halloween party (sorry, 'Harvest party') at school, they decided to have it at Becker Farms this year. It was a beautiful day, and the kids had a great time.

I wasn't sure what Alex would think, but he liked it, too.
Alex had to see the fire engine first.
He could have sat in here a long time.

Alex's favorite part of the day
- the slide through the 'mountain'. He was not happy when we
said it was time to stop.

On the way back we stopped at a pumpkin patch. Alex wasn't happy, because he wanted to get a second pumpkin, so he would have one he could carry himself.
Karin is all ready for her first middle school dance.

Alex the Detective.

He is a detective pretty much every day. This usually involves wearing whatever coat he can find, a baseball cap or other hat, and a magnifying glass. He hopes Santa will bring him a real detective outfit.

Halloween! We had a bit of trouble, as Alex decided at the last minute that he should be a detective instead, but we managed to talk him into going with his original choice.

Karin the Clown
We didn't go very far trick-or-treating, as we were probably getting towards the end of the 'official' trick-or-treat hours. Alex got tired before we finished, and began asking that someone else carry his bucket. Finally, Lars had to carry him to the car, and I took the girls to a few more houses. But never fear, they got plenty of candy.
My first hurried attempt at makeup. I got a lot of practice, as this had to be put on four times.
All ready to go.
