Story Time

Caitlin told us this story at dinner tonight.

Before she was born, she lived in Hamburger Town, where she was a baby boy with red hair like a watermelon, and was 40 feet tall.  She made robot oranges and sold them.  The robot oranges made time machines.  The robot oranges were actually alien robot oranges and their heads were as big as mine.  Everyone called her Tubeyhead.  She made macaroni necklaces for her grandmas for her hobby, and she traveled on the time machines.  Her friends' names were Joe, Mike, Lightbulb, Heart, I Can Change the World, and Flower Eyes.

The End.


We just got back from trick-or-treating, which was nice and uneventful.  The kids got lots of candy and a good time was had by all.

Last night we went to Gavin's school carnival and had a great time.  The kids played golf, fishing, spin the wheel, a bunch of other games, and went through a haunted house.  They collected a bunch of cheap little toys that they LOVE.  It reminded me a lot of the carnivals I used to go to at church when I was a kid.  I got them cotton candy - Caitlin's first time ever tasting it!  We all had a great time.

Also, I was able to run five and a half miles with NO knee pain at all.  I think I may have found the solution to my knee problems.  I hope I'm not jinxing myself.....
