Kaitlin was a crazed prom girl and Glennie was a frozen army man. Kaitlin decided to do dad's hair - pink spray and lots of pony tails!
We had 98 trick or treaters and turned the lights off at 8:30. We were tired of answering the door by then. So here's our Halloween

I am going to hang it horizontally on the wall in the hall upstairs. So I have been digging around trying to find photos to put in the collage - not these ones here... but all of this is is bringing me back to the days the kids were little and the trying yet cute times we had with them. With Glennie and his ADHD, there were days, a lot of days, I would call my mom for advice on 'what to do? how to handle Glennie?" etc. She always had some answer but Glennie even managed to stump my mom.
I have thought about how much they have grown up and matured in the past few years. I can't help but think my mom had a hand in it. She always said she would be around for the 'teenage' years. Glennie has changed SOOO much and we are sooo proud of him. He's a completley different kid... totally off all med's and has come so far.
Anyway - here's my blast from the past!
cleaning his dresser - not to mention this day Glennie sprayed Kaitlin in the face/eyes with 409 or windex

So here's Glenn's Varsity Highschool team. He is right in the center/middle - #8. Kaitlin is in the center/bottom. She is a team manager. She's had fun with that - get's to go to all the games - home and away.
This Thursday the kids are getting out of school all day for a game in Grand Junction. The school is chartering a bus, paying for the lunch and dinner and they will be getting home around 1:30AM. Glenn and I plan on taking the day off work and making that 4 hr drive.

She was born on the 13th at 5:13 weighing 8lb 7 oz. When they brought her to me, I thought she wasn't mine. I thought she looked like a little mexican baby. She had a TON of hair and it was soooo dark. We put pillow curlers in her hair when she was 7 months old!! Cute!!
Here's my baby - 14 yrs old today. Time sure does fly!
She wanted to make her own birthday shirt. I found a black t-shirt at Walmart for $2 and bought some iron on letters, iron on glitter cupcake and glitter paint. She went to work and had fun being creative!
She handed out candy to her friends at school... wanted me to bring her subway for lunch - I threw in a diet vanilla coke too :P and for dinner it's her choice.... Malibu Chicken.
Happy Birthday Kaitlin - We LOVE you!!

Mr. Gopher poked his head up long enough for Glenn to 'fire in the hole' and he scared the thing.. time to move onto other means... super gassers (here he is lighting the thing) See the smoke coming out from the corner of the stone? Mission accomplished?? Time will tell. We have not seen a fresh mound of dirt since.. so hopefully he's gone for good!
