Happy Halloween!

I know you are all anxiously awaiting Kaitlyn’s Halloween costume reveal, but you’re just going to have to wait a bit longer because we were busy today!

Here was her pre- costume outfit.  The shirt says “Daddy’s Under My Spell”…

This morning Grammy arrived for a visit.  After she got here we headed off to the Ringling Brothers and Barnum Bailey Circus.  Kaitlyn loved it.  She alternated between laughing and her mouth hanging open in surprise.  One of the elephants took a big dump and as the poor guy was scooping it up she pointed it out and said “uh oh”.

After the circus, Kaitlyn got into her costume and we headed off to Bugaboo for dinner.  Kids in costume ate free.   After dinner, it was time to trick or treat!  We went over to a friend’s neighborhood.  Every year, Jim goes all out decorating his house for Halloween.  As you’ll see in the pictures below he gets really into it.  So without further ado…

This year, Kaitlyn wasn’t just getting candy.  She was searching for clues and picking up Scooby Snacks…

In the picture below, Jim is on the right.  He actually doesn’t look that much different at work…  Just kidding Jim!  And yes, Kaitlyn was terrified of him.  She just didn’t realize he was there at the time.Imported Photos 01016 Imported Photos 01017

The loot…Imported Photos 01018

We only went to about 10 houses.  It’s just not as much fun trick or treating when its freezing out.  I plan on fighting Kevin for the Reese cup…

Hope everyone had a great Halloween!!!

Future Hockey Player

As if her demands to watch hockey (“hockey on!”) and asking about “hockey” and “Crackers” every time she get strapped into her car seat weren’t enough of a clue… It is becoming more  obvious everyday that Kaitlyn will not be figure skating in a few years.  Instead, I’d like to introduce you to  the future of the University of Maine’s Women’s Hockey Team…

Pirates Home Opener

Saturday was the day we have been waiting for…  hockey season has returned!!!  I’m still not sure if Kaitlyn has a crush on goalie Jhonas  Enroth or if she’s just fascinated by the goalie mask.  Either way, she stares him down.  She also won’t wave to any of the new guys until they turn away from her.  Travis Turnbull is still her special friend.  He picked up right where he left off last season, coming over to wave at her during practice.

I swear Kaitlyn wasn’t trying to strangle Kevin.  She was actually dancing at this point.  One of the highlights of the night was watching her shake her butt to Justin Timberlake’s “Sexy Back”…100_0919

Goughan Farm

The theme of this year’s corn maze was “Lost in Space”.  The main paths of the maze were the planets and their orbits.

The start of the maze.   The yellow flowers represented the sun…100_0859
