Gardner Village for Halloween

 I had a few errands to run and I still wanted to do something fun with the kids so I took them to Gardner Village to see the witches!
 They loved looking around and seeing what all the crazy those witches were causing!
 "Make a scary face!"
 This was Lauren pretty much the whole, entire time.
 The boys thought this was hilarious of course.
 I took them into Sweet Afton's for a little treat....
to tide us over....
 until we got the the bakery for a pumpkin cookie.
 Eating these is serious business!

All was well until the sugar kicked in and then this happened: 
SPLAT.  
My kids went CRAZY of their own.
 Graham on sugar is like a someone fed him speed. 
 Blurry pictures because he can't stop moving!  Then, Greg follows his big brother's awesome example!
 STOP!!!  STOP IT!!!!  NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!
 We made it outside without anyone breaking anything (success!)
 And Graham gave us all a very educational speech on how waterwheels work and what they are for.
 It was a very nice way to spend a fall afternoon.  I'll just do the cookies LAST next time!
Not to worry anyone, but I've had a few medical scares over the past few months.  Tomorrow I am heading downtown for a big ta-do type of test (not looking forward to the IV, yuck!)  

Dan took the day off to be with the kids while I go get this taken care of and hopefully everything will be okay.  But if you feel like sending some positive thoughts my way I would sure appreciate it!!
