A Storybook Halloween

Avery was born just in time to participate in the Halloween festivities, which were pretty low-key at the Turner house. We just trick-or-treated around the neighborhood, skipping all the fun carnivals, pumpkin patches, and parties to try to avoid picking up all the flu and other crud that is going around. Neither Jack nor Avery really need to get sick right now (not to mention the rest of us). The boys enjoyed getting to put on their costumes, and Avery's outfit got compliments from all the neighbors. I'm just appreciating the fact that I can still decide what they're going to wear without worrying about their opinions... my guess is that the days of themed family costumes are numbered. This year Jack was a knight (complete with sword), Elijah was a snuggly dragon, and Avery was the tiniest princess ever.

So cute! What a darling theme...I love it!
And, Aden ALWAYS dropped books on Jonathan's head (well, actually it was more like "whacked him on the head with books"!)while he was nursing! It must be that age b/c Aden was 18 months when Jonathan was born. Isn't Elijah about that age...20 months maybe?
