Our Halloween Zoo

Here are pictures of our little zoo that we took trick-or-treating and then to the State Fair on Halloween night.

Unfortunately trick-or-treating was rather dull since people decided to neither decorate their homes nor to give out any candy. I just don't know what happened to our neighborhood - it just didn't use to be like that and I don't want to think that our poor economy has anything to do with this.

At least the fair was nice and we finally got to enjoy some more of this beautiful cool fall weather. Lucas went on his first Merry Go Round and Ferris Wheel rides and had a blast. But I think his favorite thing was seeing and petting the little farm animals. He even got to ride a pony and was yelling "Hee Haw" throughout the entire ride. The babies just checked out all the surroundings and started fussing when it was getting close to feeding time. But mommy was able to quiet them down in no time by feeding them some fresh made funnel cake. Those babies will eat just about anything!

Unfortunately early Sunday morning Lucas started running a fever and couldn't keep any Tylenol down or anything else thereafter. His fever is finally gone and his stomach is starting to settle down a bit but a nasty sore throat has taken its place. Poor baby is just not the same energetic little boy I'm used to - he is definitely miserable. On top of it Tyler is not feeling well either. He couldn't keep his last bottle down last night and he's been very lethargic. Let's cross our fingers that he will not develop any fever and it was just a 24 hour bug and that the other two babies will stay healthy!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!

Noah aka cute leopard

Tyler aka Granny's lil' stinker

Julie aka moo moo

Lucas aka roaring Dinosaur

This is the best I could do with four kids! Tyler wanted to crawl towards us and Julie was checking out the attic door I assume.


  1. They all look so cute in their costumes! You did a good job getting a picture of the 4 of them together.

  2. You did great! They look so ADORABLE! I love the "binky's" in their mouth too! :)
    Hope everyone starts feeling better soon.

  3. i think the picture turned out pretty well considering. I have a hard time taking a good picture of just 1. lol. They all look super duper cute!

  4. Hey looking good!! Love their costumes! We did the Zoo crew last year and put a "please don't feed the animals" sign on their stroller:-)
    Same here on the low turn out for trick or treaters. Sure not like it used to be when we were young:-(
