These are photos from Max's school halloween parade. Max went as Commander Fox from Star Wars, The Clone Wars (isn't he looking handsome!) and Vivienne was a fairy from Pinkalicious which is one of her very favorite books (she chimes in while we read with the words she knows like pink pink pink). Vivienne loves going to school with Max. She pushed her way right to the front of the parade, held hands with Cameron (the mummy) who was holding teacher Steve's hand. At one point she pulled right out in front, she's a go getter!

More photos to come...

Shopping for pumpkins has never been more fun. These two little busy bodies picked up, dropped, rolled and searched for the perfect squash. Max found "the one" while Vivienne loved them all. We brought home a few, a baby, mama and papa size. After dinner Max drew the "perfect" face. Seriously he drew, redrew and then drew it again until it was just right. Each feature had to have fangs. Fangs in the eyes, fangs in the nose and more fangs in the mouth. And as you can see Max enjoyed making the same fang face as his pumpkin!

Love the first photo of Max and his classmate Marlee, so sweet! The others of Max running, walking and smiling with an orange wedge capture the spirit too. Max and I both had a great day at his new school's walkathon. I was a co-chair and heavily involved as you can imagine, so I was so happy that the sun shone brightly while all the kids ran laps around the field to raise money for scholarships. Max ran 21 laps. A fifth grader took the winning title of most laps with 77. Max and I would like to thank his loving sponsors Maga, Paga, Aunnie, Yaya, Auntie Lulu and Papa — THANK YOU!!!

Can I say anything to summarize this? So darling. Vivi and Papa are like peas in a pod. Vivi adores him as much as I do. She also loves eating like papa does, she takes it seriously too, and he adores that. Photos from a visit on Sept 5.
