Nickname was coined by Courtney and it has kind of stuck. She even refers to it as her "peg leg".
We've been trying to get video of Avery running around in her cast, and I finally managed it. My camera is in the shop for the third time since July, grrr, so I've been relying on my phone for pictures lately.
Anyway, this little girl isn't letting some silly cast slow her down. I just have to giggle watching her run around in it though!!
This video was taken a few nights ago. They were riled up before bedtime so I told them they had 5 minutes to run their wiggles out, and they did!!

Each holiday gets more and more fun as the kids get older. This year they were thrilled with the idea of trick or treating and couldn't wait to go. This year preschool fell on Halloween so we got to get dressed up in our costumes (I was working that day so I put my witch hat on to show my spirit). This is before we got in the car to go to school.
By the time we got home it was dark, but the kids weren't ready to be done so we unloaded from the car, Court ran in and got flashlights and we trick or treated in our neighborhood, too. Halloween is the best way to get to know your neighbors. I met several families for the first time and we've lived here for 8 years. It was great!!
Avery has already decided her costumes for the next two years. First she wants to be a kitty, then after that she wants to be Minnie Mouse and Jack wants to be a puppy. We'll see if those choices stick until next year.
