Stalked by the Stork...a diary of raising twelve kids

Having twelve children is an amazing blessing and one heck of a crazy ride. Join us through all the joys, smiles, tribulations and trials as we navigate this fabulous journey!

Sunday, November 1, 2009


The kids had a great Halloween. It was a very busy day, as we had two football games, a basketball game and a football practice. We didn't get home until 5:00 and still had to eat dinner (which had been in the crock pot all day) and then scamper to get dressed (a stressful task with all these little ones). Sydney was very afraid, as we knew she would be, but as its Halloween, there wasn't much to be done as far as that goes- she'd just have to get over it. And for the most part, she did. She wasn't too fond of houses that featured lots of scary noises or decorations- but the allure of candy in her bag was enough to stave off the fright in all but a few cases.
I must say, we didn't cover as much ground trick-or-treating as we normally do each year. In fact, we only got through about half the neighborhood. Maybe Albert and I are just getting old....or maybe it was that Tennessee/South Carolina game that we were TiVo-ing for later- or maybe the cold. Not sure, but the kids wore out quicker this year, and so did we. Usually Albert doesn't wear out- he loves to take the kids to every participating house in the neighborhood and then sometimes goes across to another neighborhood. We aren't usually skimpy parents when it comes to fun stuff like that- we like to let the kids experience all they can- but this year Daddy was the first to wear out!
Still, everyone got plenty of candy for their bags, and so far, Mommy has eaten about a dozen Recees' cups. Yum. I think I saw Manny raid all the bags for the Twix bars. He thinks I didn't see him. We took a few pictures- not tons because we were in a rush to get out the door but I think I got a couple of at least the little ones. For the first time ever, Drew and Manny didn't dress up! I was a bit sad, but I understand. They are 14 and 12 and can't dress up forever.
Hope everyone had a happy Halloween! I'll post our pics as soon as we get them uploaded, which with all the homework Al and I both have- may not be today...

Psalm 40:16-17 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified. But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.

My older kids didn't dress up either, but I also wouldn't let them (and they wanted to. I'm mean like that. LOL)

So glad you had a good Halloween.
