Big River

I can't believe how fast this guy is growing up. 5 months and he is doing things I am not prepared for. Our little man is getting teeth already, rolling over and moving around in a worm like fashion. If we leave him on the floor and leave the room he will have wiggled his way across the room in a few minutes. Since Abe didn't move a muscle til he was 10 months old, this is quite unexpected.

One of my favorite things about him is that he laughs really hard, especially when I change his clothes. I really have no idea why he thinks it is so funny, but he does...every time.

Here is a video that took me a day to upload. It is long and probably boring to most, so may be just for big River fans.

Happy Halloween

Halloween was really fun this year...

...until the last 10 minutes.

Kelsey & Karly

Last weekend my nieces, Karly and Kelsey came to visit. We had such a fun time. We went to the beach on the foggiest day ever. Karly's dream of going to the American Girl store was fulfilled. We decorated Halloween cookies and made pizza. Abe had a lot of fun with the girls and it was fun that they could meet River.

pumpkins and tractors

So happy to be on the tractor ride.

River was moderately amused.

Chad and Abe were on the edge of their seats during the pig races.

What the hay!

I'm not sure who enjoyed the antique tractor show more between Chad and Abe. But I think it was probably Chad.

Abe spent a long time helping the goats get primped.

Train Ride!

Last weekend we went to the Harvest Festival at Underwood Farms. Abe was so much more into all the pumpkin patch festivities than last year and it turned out to be fun for everyone.

Afterwards we went to visit our friends the Lee's. We somehow convinced a babysitter to watch 3 two-ish year old kids, and we went out on the town.

After British Columbia, we got to go and visit our former LA buddies, the Pulsiphers, in Montana. We all picked up right where we left off, especially Abe and George, and we began to facilitate a friendship between River and Ed. The boys played with trains, went swimming and we did a lot of eating, and sitting around talking, and Ashley and I toasted to our birthdays of course. We miss them!
