Here are just a few photos from our Halloween this evening:

Mother and Dad (Jonathan's parents) arrived safely this evening to visit us for the next week and a half. We are very excited for their visit. Slight oversight, we didn't get any photos of Spencer tonight in his costume. He was there in his costume. However, we do have photos of him from the Halloween Carnival, so hopefully he will forgive us one day.

Ward Halloween Carnival

Saturday was our annual Ward Halloween Carnival, below is a link to some photos taken from it. David is a "Lightning McQueen Racecar Driver" and Spencer is "Tigger". The little boy dressed as a tree in the photos with David is his new best friend, Jacob.

New place for photos

We've been having difficulties uploading our photos to Blogger through Picasa, so as a temporary (and possibly permanent) solution, we have uploaded recent photos of Eric's visit and a family outing to Picasa Web Albums. You can find our public photo albums at http://picasaweb.google.com/jrstonehenge

Here are links to the two galleries:

Fall in Ann Arbor


Fall in Ann Arbor is a glorious thing to behold. The colors now are so varied and beautiful. Jonathan said that it reminds him of the New England area where he spent much of his youth. This photo was taken over a week ago before my morning walk with the boys. Posted by Picasa

David Words

I thought I would take a minute to share a couple of cute things that David has said. In our recent quest for 100% potty training, I created a chart whereby David needs to place stickers on five empty squares to receive a reward. (One perfect bathroom session equals one sticker.) The rewards are: a bite-size candy bar, an outdoor bubble-blowing experience, a bowl of popcorn, and a trip to the slide. However, in the last few days he has come down with a cold, so in order to bribe him to take his medicine, we offer him a chocolate bar (the bite-size candybar reward) for swallowing the medicine down. He calls these "chocky bars".

This morning, David arose in the wee hours of dawn to use the bathroom. After spending some time in the bathroom, we called in to him, "David, are you finished?"

He said, "Need help!"

"What do you need help with?" We asked.

"My shorts are upside up."

It is always nice to wake up laughing in the morning, even if it is to simply turn a pair of shorts inside out.
