Leaves Fall!

Two weeks ago we had a few warm days. The kids entertained themselves for 3 days in a row with this pile of leaves that they worked so hard to rake up.

When I wasn't looking Xander crawled into the stroller basket and was smashing his face against the mesh. He thought he was being pretty funny!

Spooky, Scary Skeletons!

This year for our Halloween party we had bone bread sticks and a snake calzone!

And bat cookies!

Danika really liked the cookies!

Then we carved pumpkins and after that went to Trunk or Treating at the church!
Zach was the headless horseman, Danika was Cinderella, Elora was a witch and Xander was a Bunny.

And He's Off!

Xander thought he was pretty funny attacking Grandpa!

At 14 months old Xander finally decided it was time to start walking!
Since we don't have a video camera I am showing you with pictures.

Danika's 4!

Danika is 4 now!

CA in September!

Now it's September!
We went to CA to see the newest "Smith" baby!
This is Wendy and Ben's baby, Dixie.
While we were in CA we visited Riley's Farm in Oak Glenn.
Makella and Danika were so intrigued by this little gopher.

We went to the Yucaipa Market and Grandma let the kids get their faces painted.

Zach looking handsome.

Xander making funny faces.

Xander and Allison playing around.

All the Grand kids with Great Grandma Lowe.

We also took Bonnie and her kids to the Living Dessert. It was only 111 degrees when we left!
The poor baby boys were so hot, we were pouring water on them to keep them cool.

Cute Little Guy

Way back in August (again) we had this cut little guy come hang out with us for a while. I think it's a baby humming bird. The mama came around to check on it a few times. It just sat there while we stared at it. We were standing right under the wire, which was only about 5 ft above my head.

Xander's One!

Way back in August Xander turned one.
This was his fancy "Birthday Cake"!
(Pete made it of course!)

Two of Xander's presents. The goldfish crackers were a huge hit!

Sequim, WA

We went camping in Sequim, WA for our last camping trip this summer!
We couldn't have picked a better weekend for it!
It was warm and sunny and beautiful!
This was at Ruby Beach,
the "kids" had tons of fun in the tide pools!

Zach and Elora running along Ruby Beach.

Here is Crescent Lake. It is so beautiful! The water is really that color!

Danika is standing in Ho National Rain Forest. This tree was huge!
