Halloween, Max Black Cat Zierse, & Megan Gets Crafty!

Here are our Halloween pictures! We had a fun time trick-or-treating this year. Kelly was able to get the day off. It was nice because this was the first time in 4 years that he didn't have to work on Halloween! The kids enjoyed the festivities but were tired and ready to be done around 7:00, which surprised me a little. Carson knew his part well. He would knock on the door, give the right command, scrunch up his little face, and then in his best pirate voice say,"Arrgh, Lady (matey)." Here are some pictures of our little spooks!

Meet the newest member of the family. This is Max or Black Cat. We don't know for sure what the name is yet! Carson calls him Black Cat and Connor calls him Max. However, Carson gets upset when he is called Max. As of right now his name is Max Black Cat Zierse! He is a cute and cuddly little kitty. He isn't quite sure of Sadie yet. Actually, Sadie is a little more scared of the cat than the cat of Sadie! Carson is always looking out for his kitten. He makes sure he has food and water. He also gets him a blankie and he even shared his Popsicle with him! Hopefully the novelty of taking care of a kitten doesn't wear off too soon!

My friend had a craft day at her house last weekend and I made this lovely Christmas topiary. It turned out very cute and I have even made a second one since. I am blessed to have some very talented crafters in my ward and with their help, I am trying to follow along! I have made some other really fun things for my house in the past couple of weeks. Thanks friends!

Luke was Darth Vadar too! However, I couldn't convince him to keep his mask on while trick or treating so people kept asking who he was...

Cute! I wish I could have a cat. I think kittens are about the cutest thing in the world.
Love the topiary!

I don't know if the word "cute" can adequately describe your kids, but that's the only word I can come up with.

Your little crafty arrangement is pretty cute too.
