Some Family Pictures

 This past weekend, we went with my parents to pre-select our Christmas trees.  It was a nice day to wander around the tree farm.

The lucky boys got to sit on the big, orange tractor!

Ten Months Old

 Micah is ten months old now!  I can hardly believe it!  His personality is blossoming.  He's still really cuddly, but now he is more vocal about what he likes and dislikes.  It's fun to listen to him babble!

Halloween 2013

 We had so much fun on Halloween Day!  Since it was Thursday, we went to Bob's house for lunch and play time with the cousins.  After Stephanie, Ethan, and Garret decorated a ghoulish gingerbread house, the boys all put on their costumes for a photo shoot.  Here is Ethan as the young Harry Potter and Garret as Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars Episode 3.  Levi was a fireman, and Micah was a tiger.

So cuddly!

Levi is ready for the 2014 calendar

Fire Chief Levi says, "Lampshades must stay on lamps."
Next we changed back into our play clothes and headed back outside.  Although it had been raining lately, Bob had gathered up a huge pile of leaves and covered it with a tarp to keep it dry.  So much fun!!!

Ethan looks so innocent and so menacing at the same time!

Time to relax

Micah LOVED playing in the leaves!
Next we came back inside and carved pumpkins before heading home.

In the evening we went down to Jill and Randy's house.  Levi went through the motions of trick-or-treating, but I guess I hadn't explained that after he says "trick-or-treat" he should stand on the porch and wait for the treat.  Instead he kept walking through the door, tripping over his extra large boots and falling into the house.  He didn't look quite as smooth as he did when he posed for photos at Bob's.  :)  We had a great little visit with the gang.  The little guys sat nicely for a photo: Micah, Avery as Berrykin, Maddie as Strawberry Shortcake, and Levi.
We finished the day at my parents' house for dinner.  It was so great!
