Day 1 (Dec 2) Matthias got his hearing aids today around 2p.m. He wore them for about 5 hours before he had a major meltdown like I have never seen before. When Katie put his hearing aids in, he seemed to sit still like he "may" be hearing something. It is hard to tell. He seemed to respond a little when Kevin was drumming on the table, but it was hard to tell if it was a visual or auditory response. He paused a few times and got the "Deer in the headlights" look, but again I am not sure if it is an auditory response.

For the first time ever, my kids and my sister's kids got to spend Halloween together.
From left to right Joshua, Kathryn, Alexander, Alyssa, Matthias, Brittany, Kaitlyn, and Adam
My kids :)
Poor Adam ;)
Matthias does not like the mask
Trick or treating at the mall
I do not know this little angel, but her parents said I could take her picture.... best costume ever!!
Matthias would rather play with his foot.

We had a much needed night of fun and family.
No doctors. No sickness. Just good times.
Adam makes a super cute police man :)
Matthias was Captain America but did not love the mask. He looks pretty awesome huh?
Brittany looks pretty even as a vampire.
Awww my little Alyssa Princess
My beautiful Kaitlyn vampire
Our church had a chili cook off, a couple games and "trunk or treating" for the kids.
Trunk or treating is a safe way for kids to trick or treat all in our church parking lot :)
Kait in a doughnut eating competition
Kaitlyn trying to help Matthias fish :)
He liked the fishing prize though :)
They had it so the kids could color the table cloth..... Here is some of Kaitlyn's coloring
Kevin says I complain that I am never in the pictures so he snapped one so he could plead innocence ;)
Brittany and Alyssa in a doughnut eating competition
Brittany won..... Do not ask me how she bends her neck that way
All 5 of my amazing kiddos
I think I may have given Matthias a weapon by accident LOL
So daddy attached it to the rings on the stroller so he could not use it to hit
Just because I thought this candy was cool.... an ear :) FYI it was yummy too
Tonight was probably one of the best nights as a family. No fits, lots of thank yous etc.
I am definitely feeling the love and prayers offered on behalf of our family and I am thankful.
The kids have 2 more nights of Halloween ahead. One with each set of cousins and they are super excited!!
Thanks Grandma and Poppy for our super cute costumes!!
Quick Adam update: Today was the best day Adam has had post surgery. He went 6 hours between pain meds. His pulse only went up that one time, so I gave him his meds. He has barely cried. He has not needed oxygen. Today Adam almost seems like his old self.
