Daddy had to be on a business trip over Halloween so Grammy came over to help me waddle trick-or-treat with the boys!  
Our favorite friendly blue monster!
Grammy & Henry the monkey!
 Charlie remembers trick-or-treating from last year so was happy to show Henry what to do.
 Sweet brothers going to their 1st house!
 Charlie wasn't shy at all to go ring our new neighbor's doorbell.  Henry was overwhelmed with all of the kids and strangers so he ended up holding Grammy's hand while Charlie did his thing.
 Since we live so close to the Stassi's now we had to go trick-or-treat at their house!  By the time we got there our Henry was so tired.  We ended up just hanging out with them and passing out candy.  Fun to see how different this neighborhood is from our last!  Lots and lots of kids!

Happy Halloween!

October... The Rest

Again the best way I know how to summarize the random (but cute) happenings this month is to do a hodgepodge post!

We met up with Katie and little Jack for a cupcake date to celebrate his 2nd birthday since we missed his birthday party.  They picked out the cupcakes themselves... Look at those big smiles!

Henry got a yummy big soft cookie!

This cracks me up- how many parents does it take to get 3 year olds to pose for their soccer team picture?
Uncle Q came over for a Sunday afternoon to watch some football and play with the boys.
 Charlie caught a baby frog in the backyard!
During Henry's nap time, Charlie & I have been enjoying craft time.. this day he was making monster crafts and I was making baby hair bows!
 When unpacking another box, Charlie found a mini telescope of Daddy's!
I walked in the kitchen the other day to find Henry trying to refill his cup by himself... I love how he's trying new things on his own and is so proud of himself :)
One day when Daddy was gone on a business trip, Charlie wanted to write him a letter.  I was SO surprised when he wrote his name all by himself.  I was just about to start working on this with him and he did it on his own!
Last weekend Daddy with the help of some amazing friends went and got our clubhouse from our old house and put it together in our new backyard!  The boys have been playing in it non-stop since.  I took a video of Henry back in his swing that he loves so much.  LOVE this boy's laugh!
And then one of Charlie spinning him around.  I could watch these 2 interact all day long!
Henry found a comfy place to sit... I think he looks like my Dad right here!
35 week belly picture of Miss Molly!
Trey had to fill in as head coach during a soccer practice.  Look at those stretches!
 The big kids are always so sweet to Henry who wants to be a part of their team too!  I can't believe how big our 19 month old baby is!

We have been spending lots of mornings lately playing in the sandbox!

Our 1st cold weekend & the boys helped Daddy mow the lawn.

We went to Sebastian's 2nd birthday party at the zoo and somehow this is the only picture I got. Rhenee & I showing off our Molly & Zachary bumps. 35 & 32 weeks along :)
Later that day we went to celebrate little Sophia turn 8! Her bud Charlie right by her side.
And to sum up the end of October- my 36 week belly picture!
Can't believe November is next....BABY MONTH!!

Cousins' Fourth Annual Zoo Boo!

It's that time of year again- time for the cousins to get together and go to our 4th Zoo Boo!  Sarah & the kids came for the weekend and we had a blast.. as usual!  Charlie and Alice totally love each other, and Henry is now getting old enough to play along, too.  Love getting our babies together!

The night before the bath we made Halloween cookies and let them have a big bubble bath in the big bathtub!
 Henry went to bed and the big kids got to enjoy cookies and a movie on the couch!
On Zoo Boo morning the kids got dressed in their costumes and we headed to the zoo!
Grammy has been spoiling us with homemade costumes every year & while she wanted to do the same this year I decided she needed the year off... she has been busy with sewing projects for Molly.  Henry is able to wear the monkey costume from 2 years ago and Charlie picked out a blue monster costume :)

The cousins! This was little Jude's 1st zoo boo!  Crazy to think we will have Molly here next year!


Off we go! 

For late October it was insanely hot and humid.  The boys lasted in their costumes about 10 minutes before they had to change!  

As usual the zoo had trick or treating and fun activities- including painting mini pumpkins.

 We had to stop and take a few pics with the giraffes.. my favorite!
Since it was so hot they had the misting fans scattered throughout.. they felt so good & are pretty fun to play in!
Henry loving being able to walk around too!
Sarah and I have realized that for the last 3 out of 4 zoo boo's one of us has been pregnant.  
Hi Molly! (34 weeks)
After a good day filled with a lot of fun, walking, and sweating we headed out.. stopping to see the BIG fish first though, of course.

We love this tradition.  It gives us a reason to make time to see each other in our busy lives.. and each year is more fun with the kids getting older and remembering it themselves.  Next year we will take 5.. and little Molly could possibly be walking!  Memory making at its finest!
