Halloween and stuff

My little monster

Summer got a lot of candy on Halloween and we have been busy trying to eat all of it ever since. Well, today we have actually been gone all day, but now that we are home we will get back to the candy eating. LOL We went to a few of our friends houses again this year and trick-or-treated in their neighborhoods. Summer and Katie were some of the first trick-or-treaters in Hidden Harbor. We got an early start to try and beat the cold. It worked in the first neighborhood, but by the time we reached the other it was dark and getting chilly. About two blocks into the walk, Summer was ready to go back to Jeff and Lauries. We went a little farther though to see a house that we saw last year. They really go all out and it is pretty spooky. Summer did NOT go to the front door of that house and get candy. I happily let her skip it since she was ready to go back to Jeff and Lauries. At some of the houses, she would get two of one thing. Sometimes she would give me one of them for my basket since I was just using it to tote the camera. I thought it was really nice of her to share, although I had already been stealing candy from her basket all night. :) That is what I had for supper that night. CANDY. Summer had some yogurt, grapes and a pb&j after we were done trick-or-treating. Her sister stopped by her aunts house with Lexie while we were there. So we stayed and visited with her and Lexie. Lexie was a little bunny rabbit. She was precious! We took Amanda and her back to Amanda's truck on the way home. Summer was very upset when she realized Amanda was going to take Lexie with her. I guess since Lexie spent the night with us the night before, she assumed she would be doing it again. It was cute to see how attached she was to Lexie even though she acted a little jealous when Lexie was here. She wanted to be held and cuddled like she saw me do with the baby. I wish she was doing that now.

Today she is a big girl again. She didn't want to hold my hand at the zoo. But, she did let me carry her a little bit. When she started getting tired, she was ready for my arms. Holding her in my arms is one of those things I don't think I could ever get tired of -- at least emotionally. I might physically get tired of it. :)

She just brought up Lexie again while we are here on the bed watching Barney - Everyone is Special. I was asking her what her sister's name is because they were singing this song called "I Love My Sister." She didn't answer me so I asked her a few more questions. The last one was: Do you want a sister? Her reply was something along the lines of this: I thought we were going to bring baby Lexie back with us. Is that a yes???

She has such a good memory. She really is a smart little girl. I think she may have gotten my ability to remember things and pick up things quickly. I sure do hope so because it will make studying so much easier (and shorter) when she is in school. Of course that is still a ways off, but it is probably closer than I realize. I never did really have to study hard which made school pretty easy for me. Clint had to study a lot I think. I guess if Summer is like him, he can be the one to help her. Just kidding.

I finally have all my pictures uploaded to my computer. Time to go through all 384 of them. :O And that is just from the past two weeks. We really had a busy month and I took a lot of pictures (approximately 550 as opposed to about 150 last month). I better get to sorting them.
We were all smiles on my 31st birthday!!!
