Lookin' good boys

This week Nathan had his first band concert, and it was wonderful. He is in the percussion section and they sound pretty amazing after only playing for 3 months. They will have another concert in May, and I can't wait to see how good they are then.
Also this week, Brandon got glasses. His right eye is underdeveloped so now he is sporting some new specs and doing eye exercises. He has to wear a patch over his left eye so his right eye can pump itself up. He likes to pretend he's a pirate with his eye patch. He's such a good sport about everything.

Other than looking good this week, we've been trying to keep warm. The temperatures have bottomed out and none of us were really ready for that to happen just yet. And we are gearing up for Thanksgiving. We can't wait to eat some turkey and pumpkin pie and spend some time with family and friends.

We had a freezing and wet Halloween. But the kids still got all dressed up and walked the neighborhood on a mission to get as much candy as possible before turning into icicles.

Brandon was excited to transform into a very realistic ninja. No glitz or glamor, strictly all black with nun chucks and some daggers. You know, like real live ninjas.
And Nathan wanted to be a sugar skull/day of the dead dude. Brian did his face pain and we pieced together an outfit so he could look as amazing as possible.
After about an hour of trick or treating, they wondered back home, bags loaded with sweet treats to last them a good 4-5 months.
