For the last couple of weeks Marlene has been sewing on Halloween costumes. Ryder wanted to be Captain Hook and he thought Phelan should be Peter Pan. Phelan however had other ideas. He wanted to be a penguin. So Omy, Marlene, went to work and with her magic here are the results.
I forgot to mention, Casey was set up for the role of Tinker Bell. So, with a star on his hat and a little green vest, he makes a pretty good looking fairy. Phelan's penguin looks very real although it's not really scary. He doesn't like scarry. The penguin suits him just fine.
The thing we really appreciate about this family of boys is that they all really like each other. The older ones are constantly checking on and kissing their little brother and Casey is always alert for the other two voices in the room. His smile really comes alive when he spots them. Our day with the boys starts with the ride back to Canby. Yesterday we had an errand on the west side of the Willamette, so on the way home we took a little extra time to ride the Canby Ferry and to buy a couple of pumpkins from a roadside stand. We sure do enjoy those boys.
