Happy Halloween!

As I write this Halloween post, I might just be listening to my Christmas play list on iTunes.  But look how well I've done!  The Wiebe children have costumes and look adorable.  Silas and Eli are both super heroes.  Silas costume is almost perfect, except the rubber boots that I went out and bought specially for the costume, and spray painted perfectly silver, never did dry, so red boots it is.  Eli's costume, on the other hand, is a work of art.  Despite my best negotiation skills, at the last minute Eli decided that he didn't want to be the Blue Power Ranger, and that he wanted to put together his own costume.  So, just that he did.  A skull shirt, a super hero cape, a batman mask, a different BabyLeg on each appendage, and his costume was complete.  He wouldn't hear of me making suggestions, and just as well, because he looked adorable. We went to a Halloween party/Trunk or Treat at Auntie Renee's church, and it was fun.  Of course, tonight it won't matter what their costumes are, because they will be bundled up in snow gear (that's right, we got our first snow last night!) So, enjoy the costumes in all their glory right now.

Renee made Eli's cape (It's got a giant yellow "E" on it) last year, and last week we threw together Silas's, with a silver "S" on the back. I've got to convince her to do a guest post with a tutorial, because I think every kid needs their very own super hero cape, and they are super easy.

 Jared was the robber, and the boys were the super heroes that stopped him from stealing all the candy.

And there you have it.  A Wiebe family Halloween in all it's glory.  Tonight we will hit a few houses, and tomorrow we will dress up one more time for the 4th Annual Evans Centre Halloween Candy Buy Back at my dad's dental office to get rid of all the candy.  And the next day... Christmas begins!!!

Halloween is Upon Us!

Well, if you remember, I'm not the biggest Halloween fan.  Halloween just gets in my way of celebrating Christmas.  It's a good thing I'm not American, because American Thanksgiving and I would not get along.  Thanksgiving in October, that's what I'm thankful for.  Anyway, we've been trying to get in the ghoulish spirit this year. I've actually thought about costumes before October 30th, and we carved pumpkins with plenty of time for them to get all saggy and such.  I've made two Halloween inspired meals, which I didn't take pictures of, sorry.  Last night we even bundled up in the chilly October evening to go to "Ghoul's Night Out" at Heritage Park.  It was a lot of fun, despite the cold. 

Silas and Rhiannon got head lamps.  I loved it because you could always see where Silas was looking, because it was lit-up!

And proof of our pumpkins! Can you guess which on I made and which one Jared made?  
So, here's to Halloween.  Maybe one day I will love it. This year I am learning to enjoy it!

Silas has an announcement...

He's proud to say that in April he's going to be a
That's right, the Wiebe family is adding to the global population crisis, and sometime in April we will be welcoming a new baby!!!  Yesterday the boys and I went to our midwives, who heard the baby's heartbeat.  I am 14 weeks pregnant, and happy to feel human again. 

Yes, we will be having a home birth.  No, I won't be getting an ultrasound to find out what we're having.  No, I'm not trying for a girl, I will be thrilled with another boy.  And yes, we are all so, so excited!!!

And, in case you were wondering, Eli is equally as proud:

Update on the Wiebes

Hello all.  So sorry it's been so long.  This life of mine has just been a little hectic as of late, and blogging has been last on my list of to-dos. Two years ago I would never have expected to STILL be living in my parent's basement.  And I promise, we've been trying to find our way out.  As of today (ask me again tomorrow) we are actually going to be moving in the next few weeks to the one bedroom basement suite we own.  It is just temporary, until our tenants in our condo move out, but it is time to fly the roost, even if our new roost isn't ideal.  I'm dying to have a permanent abode, to decorate and call my own.  Oh well, another few months and it will be so.

In the mean time, good things are happening.  Just two weeks ago this little guy turned 2!!!

Oh how I love him.  He's such a joy in our family.  He is fearless, never hesitating to follow his older brother and cousins wherever they may go.  He jumps everywhere he goes.  He is talking so well, trying out new words constantly.  He loves his daddy and almost every morning while eating breakfast cries, "Daddy, gone?!"  In the last few weeks we have moved both boys out of our bed and into their own room, and Silas loves it.  While Eli almost certainly crawls into bed with us sometime in the night, Silas usually sleeps a whole 12 hours in his big bed, only crawling in with me in the morning when he wants "mo"!  That's right, he is still nursing, and when I ask him if he wants some "mo" he usually squeals with delight, "Yeah!"  I love it!  He loves dressing up.  He has spent most of the last two weeks dressed as Buzz Lightyear (just like his big brother did at the same age.)  He loves pirates and whenever he sees any pirate paraphernalia he yells "Arggg!" He is strong willed and confident, and I hope those traits will help him grow to be a righteous, obedient boy. Eli says that he loves that "Silas likes to play with me."  Silas is such a blessing in our lives, and we are so grateful to have him around.  Happy birthday, little man!

 Silas is lucky enough to share a birthday with his cousin Charlie.  This year Charlie turned 8, and therefore got baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We spent both their birthdays at the baptism.  I can't think of a thing I'd rather do.  I love that both my boys have cousins that are such good examples of righteousness to them.

 Silas also is just two weeks younger than his cousin Nixon, who came to visit us for a few days this month.  It was so much fun to see them play, and dress up in their new birthday costumes. These two will be a riot in a few more years.  I can't wait to see them!

So that's it. Maybe I will get around to posting a few more of our September adventures.  I've justified not journalling the last few years because of this blog, and recently I haven't even been blogging.  I promise to get on it!
