I really, really tried to get pictures of the big boys. I managed one selfie with Isaac, but Jon's one picture was blurry in such a way that it looked scary... So... It's the selfie plus the little guys again this post.

Here's a glimpse of how this week has gone:
We ended Family Home Evening early when three of us broke out in hives, and my lips swelled up. Luckily, Benadryl is always on hand, and works great! Identified the offending food when we had it again two nights later, and Isaac was sick to his stomach, and I had hives and my eye swelled shut. No more frozen pizza for us!
Abi finally slept through the night again!!! For the first time in months. Feeling a little less like a zombie.
Isaac learned not to procrastinate homework when he found out the due date was a day earlier than usual. After a late night and an early morning, there was still a page done hurriedly in the car on the way to school. Somehow, his handwriting was still beautiful. (That kid has amazing penmanship!)
Kai's teacher resigned this week, to take care of a (very) sick daughter. I thought he'd be devastated, since he loves her, but he took it in stride. He's excited to meet his new teacher, and has plans to send his old one some pictures in the mail.
There's a new family in our ward with a daughter Jon's age. They just tore out their kitchen, so we had them over for dinner. That girl wanted Jon's attention the whole evening. At first, he was glad to give it (she's really cute), but then he started getting grumpy. I asked him about it later, and was informed that "she's just too high maintenance to be my type."
Jeeves ate his coat. I guess he's going to be a little cold this winter.
We decided it was time for Valkyrie to be done with her service. The other four hens are a little relieved. Isaac wasn't ready to eat one of our own, so Mike and Brittany got the honors. Mark is still a little jealous.
Abi has learned to climb up, but not down. I've rescued her from the step ladder, the kitchen peninsula, her little table, a shipping box, and the step stool in the bathroom. I honestly didn't think she'd be as difficult a toddler as Kai was, but, apparently, I was wrong...
Here's a few pictures:

I know it's early, but our ward Trunk or Treat was last night, and that was really the big event for us. We had Harry Potter, Max (Jon's favorite self inspired super hero), a skeleton (when he puts on the hat, he says he's a paleontologist), and Rainbow Dash. Mark and I dressed up too, but our costumes totally didn't come off - We were aiming for Shaggy and Velma, but we came off as fat and frumpy. At least we had fun!
(Also, we found out the hard way that fun sized Butterfingers are gluten free, but mini sized are not.)
