The whole shebang

Both Colin and Gabe could not have had a better time than they did last night. It was wonderful and magical. The cold snap we have been experiencing went away just in time. I have never seen Gabe run so much, even at the end when he had to carry his bucket with both hands. Our street was as festive as usual. The boys were both tickled with their costumes. Oliver was happy the entire time. It was just perfect.

I have never been able to get a really good picture of my kids in their Halloween costume on Halloween night. They are just way too excited.

Oliver wore the chef's costume that my mom made Colin his first Halloween, when he was 6 months old. Since Oliver is only 2 months, I did a quick tighten on the hat, but it still fell over his eyes every once in awhile. Have you heard? Oliver is a pinhead. Despite being in the 50th percentile for weight and height, his head in the 25th. Weird for someone who has Jeppson genes.
Bobby and Sabina (notice the link- she has a blog now!) came over with the kids after they finished their neighborhood.

Liam and Oliver looked so cute together with their costumes on. That hat seemed to add just enough weight to make it impossible for Oliver to pick his pinhead up.

This is a picture to cherish. Notice Liam grabbing Oliver's scarf. Is this the way it's gonna be Liam? C'mon, you've only got him by three months!

Even more impossible than getting a good picture with three boys in their costumes is getting a good picture with six boys in their costumes, after they have had tons of candy.
What makes this picture especially funny is the one that follows. Look at Oliver leaning on Gabe.......



And then watch Gabe get up quickly to cough! Down goes Ollie!

I have banned Simpsons consumption for all juveniles in the house, but I made an exception for last night. It's a bit of a tradition to watch a Treehouse of Horror before bed. Oliver actually laid there for quite some time. Yep, we start 'em young around here.

Everyone looks great in costumes but the picture of the 2 little ones in your lap is a perfect picture.

شما به هر حرفه ای که مشغول باشید، حتما به این موضوع فکر کرده اید که چقدر خوب بود که اگرفن بیان خوبی داشتید، اینکار را ما به راحتی به شما آموزش میدهیم فن بیان در واقع میزان نفوذ سخن شما در افراد را شامل می شود. یعنی اینکه صحبتهای ما به چه میزان در افراد اثرگذار خواهد بود. هنگامی که از فن بیان خوبی برخوردار نباشیم مدام نادیده گرفته می شویم و همین امر موجب می شود که اعتماد به نفس خود را از دست داده و دچار اضطراب گردیم. برای بهبود فن بیان روش های گوناگونی وجود دارد که هریک از این روشها از جنبه های گوناگون مورد سنجش و بررسی قرار گرفته است. ارتباط چشمی ، لبخند زدن و اشتیاق برخی از این راهها می باشد.
