Halloween Hullabaloo!

Gardner Village ... such a fun way to kick off our Halloween! We met Bren, Dave, and Braedyn and spent the morning watching out for witches, ghosts, and the occasional superhero.

Larkin LOVES her buddy Braedyn! She was totally diggin' his fun clown costume! They crack me up how they explore each other when they get together. Braedyn even gave Larkin a few kisses before the day was over ... so cute!

Larkin made a pretty cute witch!

Snow Day!

We woke up this morning to SNOW! I am personally not quite ready for the fluffy white freezing cold of winter ... but I decided to make the day a little more enjoyable by putting on our warmest coats and heading out to play in the first snow of the season!

We gave Larkin a little taste of the snow ... the pictures say it all! It was too cold in her little mouth and her faces were hysterical, but I had to rescue her and pluck it out of her mouth. So funny and yet sad at the same time!

Pumpkin Hunting

We went for an adventure out in the rain and mud today to hunt for pumpkins! It is Larkin's first Halloween, and although Scot and I usually buy our pumpkins at the local grocery store we decided to make it a little more "traditional" this year. We had so much fun slopping and slipping through the pumpkin patch to find our perfect pumpkins!

So This is Love ...

Thank you to my wonderful husband who came to California with me for a wedding, waded through a house knee-deep in kids, baked and decorated a wedding cake, and let me stay behind to spend some much needed time with my family.

Watching two people in love start their life together reminded me of my own adventure that started two and a half years ago with Scot. He is a wonderful man, and does so much to make my life good. He really is a stud of a husband and dad!
