5 fifths equal a wholelottaHamako

we're back.  i hope.

all five of us hamakos back in fighting strength.

halloween was... different.  but it made for a nice night with the kids.  ethan was not in any shape to be venturing out in the rain grabbing candy from people, but he was in shape to stand on the front porch and dance to monster mash for five... or seven times.  the girls had very little interest in venturing down the street with chris so after 4 houses they were back.  people watching is much more their thing.  obviously.  they love. to. stare.  but they loved to see all the kids in their costumes come beg me for candy... and they loved {even more} when i would turn away kids that weren't dressed up.  i think they admire the confidence it takes to do that to someone.  {which i think is a good thing for them to witness and learn in this case}

fooling ghouls

with ethan feeling somewhat better we grabbed the lion by the horns {inside joke} and jumped at the opportunity to travel south by 3 hours to visit with my little brother.  uncle cliffy flies jets.  he's sort of a big deal in our world.  he deploys {again} right after christmas.  it makes me very very sad and i try to take every opportunity to spend whatever time i can with him, even when i'm exhausted and it's pouring down rain.  we make things happen.

ethan salutes his mama... and i eat him up inside.

 uncle cliffy with his favorite minis...
they are just the perfect amount of birth control for him.
each and every time.

little emma with her uncle cliffy.  she has always been extremely shy which makes me even more confused as to why she is always all over her uncles.  shyness gone.

play. with. me.
hang me upside down.
spin me in circles.
put me on your shoulders.
melt. my. heart.

they don't get to see him often, so when they do, i love that they love him.
they may get bigger, but they always remain those little people in your heart.
that's why he's cliffy.
