G-man's 11th

Last prime birthday until 13! Oh, wait, that is not very interesting. Trying again...

First birthday while in Middle School! Hm, not much better...

Penultimate birthday before being a teenager. Yeah, let's go with that.

Not much to see here: he is still a fun kid. Loves reading, playing soccer, reading, a little iffy on middle school, loves Minecraft. One great kid!

Halloween Decorations

Nothing particular about this post, except some of our most interesting decorations for Halloween put up in October.
First, what would Halloween be if not for the (nasty) Halloween cereals? This year there were five to collect, and thankfully Market Basket had them on sale plus a coupon. They decorated our window shelf next to the table, for ease of access. Even JW didn't get into them, as they were not that tasty.

Second, last Christmas, I unilaterally decided (yes, some protest after the fact by the family CEO; I am merely the CFO, but can hide the expenses! :)) to collect the Lego Monster Fighters theme. Totally works for the Halloween theme. The real problem is the number of hours I "have" to spend setting them all up. But, the kids help (loose pieces) so it also counts as quality time, right? The picture doesn't do it justice as to the sheer number of figures, buildings, and vehicles. Not so great that they also have a Christmas line...

Luann's 29th, 2014 Edition

I don't even remember how YOUNG my wife is, right? She did me a solid, and picked out her own birthday present, and arranged all the details. I present to you the result:

The kids had a good time while taking pictures. There was even a session that involved some sticks as swords or light sabers, depending on the child. JW even found one to use as a gun.
