Happy Halloween!

What an exciting day! Yuri (a.k.a. Tinkerbell) loved her costume and enjoyed the day parading around! At school, the babies at the daycare parade around for all the classrooms to see. Here are some pics of her and her friends.

Tonight, Mema came over to give Yuri her "treat." Then Michael went to pick up Will and we took Yuri and him around the neighborhood. Our neighborhood has a lot of kids so we enjoyed some time talking/playing. Here are some pictures of our this evening's festivities! Will's costume "fit like a glove" as Michael liked to say. I didn't do a very good job of picking the correct size!

Happy Halloween!

Catch up...

I know, it may seem hard to remember me, but I am finally getting around to updating. The Guest Blogger has decided to do all his picture/video uploading to Facebook, so he hasn't really been taking up my slack! Sorry!

I have a lot to talk about but I am just going to give snips of life a the Malone House for the past month. It will be a picture journal, starting with...
On September 22, my Great Grandmother turned 104. AMAZING! So, here are some pics from her party. We took a two different 5 generations pictures: one regular and one with just our hands. Grandma Jeffery saw another family doing that so she wanted us to.

Here is a video of Yuri doing "Ring Around the Rosie". Listen carefully, she is actually trying to sing the words. It may be hard to hear from the background noise.

Last Sunday was my first St. Louis University Softball Alumni game. That's right, I am/was a softball player. I played in college and going back for the alumni game brought back a lot of great memories of being a collegiate athlete. I didn't make a very good showing as a hitter though (ironically enough since I do hold the career record for hits!) It was still a great time!

Yuri loved the water cooler!

Friday night was the annual Fall Festival at SLCS (where I work). Yuri had a great time walking around. She even did the bean bag toss-by toss, I mean she walked up to the hole and put each bean bag in.

Last night was my 10 year High School Reunion! It was a good time at Morgan Street on the Landing. I saw a lot of people that I haven't seen in a long time and was able to reconnect with some "lost" friends!

Last but not least, we went to Eckert's Farm today. We started the tradition last year-going with my mom (Mema), my sister, my brother-in-law, and the boys (the cousins). Yuri was so much more engaged this year (obviously!). She went down the big slide, played mini-golf, watched the pig races, went through the corn maze, fed the animals, and picked out a pumpkin.

These were taken when we got back from the farm. We decorated one of the pumpkins with Mr. Potato Head parts.
