Kiddos in Costume

We got the kids all dressed up for the church halloween carnival and then took them on base for trunk-or-treat. Italian's don't do the Halloween thing in general, although it is catching on a little. Anyway, there are literally thousands of kids who go through the trunk-or-treat at the base, American and Italian. I got to hand out candy for our squadron "trunk" but the only picture of me is pretty gross. Enjoy the kids though! Caitlyn is with her friend Raquel, beautiful goddesses!
I tried to feed Alisea before I put on my witch costume, but I had already put on my wax nose. She kept looking at me with a very concerned look on her face - and kept stopping her eating to stare at me. It was pretty funny. I got completely back to normal by her next feeding to avoid traumatizing her for life!

Pumpkin Carving Time!!

Got the pumpkins carved tonight. Ethan picked out his shapes from a list and did the "sawing" as mom guided the saw. Caitlyn got creative with a ghost on one side and the word "Halloween" on the other. Turned out pretty awesome considering her awkwardness with the cast on. Casey did the bat. Mom gets to clean up the mess as Alisea looks on from her swing. Now how come that always happens? Now we'll see if they last till Halloween. Even if they don't, we had
fun carving them!
We're now gearing up for the base trunk-or-treat on Saturday. I get to play the wicked witch from Oz - The last time I did the witch thing, Ethan was 8 mo. old and freaked out a little. We'll see how Ali does.

Assignment is in!

And the winner is.........

We're headed back to Del Rio, Texas. Casey will be a T-38 instructor. Not our first choice, but the positives are that we're closer to home, Casey should not be deployed for the 3 years we're there, and Caitlyn can master a new language.,+TX,+United+States+of+America&ie=UTF8&ll=29.363027,-100.898437&spn=5.858105,11.184082&z=7&om=1

In other news - we just returned from a nice trip to Slovenia's Lake Bled. It's quite possibly our favorite place in Europe!! Our good friends, the Armitage's, made a trip from England for a long weekend with us. It was freezing but we still had a ball and loved the fall colors!

Alisea is growing like a weed. She is definitely our smallest baby though, petite and beautiful. She is just starting to roll over and has found her thumb. She never would take a paci, and I think the thumb thing is so cute. I hope I don't read this when she's six and I'm not thinking its so cute anymore! I'll get a picture and add it next time.

Casey just returned for Bulgaria. It's nice to have him back so Ethan can haul someone else out of bed in the morning!

We're off to play-group! The joys of having little ones!!!

Caitlyn's new armor

Okay - take 2. I already screwed up cause the picture didn't post the first time.

Here's Caitlyn and her beautiful cast. Hopefully just 3 more weeks. And it had to be the right arm! It's hilarious that she can't get her fingernails into her mouth. Might actually reach the top of her nailbed by the time she gets it off!
More to come tomorrow.
Hey everyone

I'm gonna attempt to join the blogger world so you can keep up with us a little better. Bear with me as I work to figure this stuff out. Caitlyn broke her arm - lovely, and I attempted to get all three kids in the same picture. This was the best I could get!
