I took a personal day from work today to go see Wesley's Halloween Parade. Stu came also since he had some flex time to use. He was so excited for it when he woke up this morning. The first thing he said when he woke up was, "I am so exciting for my Halloween parade today." I brought him to school and went back at 9:30 for his parade. He was so happy as soon as he spotted us watching him.
The kids walked around several times and then sang some Halloween songs. Wesley was next to his best friend, Olivia, who was Skye from Paw Patrol. It went along perfectly with Wesley's Chase from Paw Patrol costume.
Wesley went back into the school for a Halloween party after the parade. Parents weren't allowed in but I did send in donut spiders that I made last night.
Brandon, Wesley, and Stu were all off today for Columbus Day. Unfortunately I had a professional day at work so was not able to spend the day with them. Stu took the kids to Eastmont Orchard to go apple picking and pumpkin picking. Everyone had a fun time!
Yesterday afternoon Wesley went to his friend JJ's birthday party. It was on a pirate ship. Brandon got to come also since there were extra spots on the boat. All of the kids had so much fun.
After the party we went to Tinton Falls Day. The kids got to go on pony rides, bounce houses, paint pumpkins, and go to touch a truck. They also saw a helicopter land. We ran into several friends there too.
My friend Toni's father is a photographer. He was at Wesley's first soccer game since his grandson, Dominic, is on Wesley's team. He took some great pictures and put them on his private photography page. I copied some of the pictures since they came out so great.
My name is Karen and I have been married to my husband Stu for a little over 9 years. I was pregnant with twins and lost our baby girl at 20 1/2 weeks after I had premature rupture of membranes. I stayed pregnant with the other baby and our first child, Brandon Tyler, was born on July 5, 2008 at 26 weeks and 1 day. Our second child, Wesley Matthew, was born full term on June 29, 2011. This blog is documenting our children.
