Last Halloween, I was 3 days past my due date with Will, wondering if I would be having a Halloween baby! Well, we all know how that turned out :) It was fun celebrating Halloween with our little dragons, especially since Finn was SO excited this year.

Last year, Finn couldn't reach any of the doorbells. This year, he reached them easily. It was a trip.
Will was content in the stroller, and everyone gave Finn an extra candy when they saw him.

Pre-Halloween Fun

Mike signed us up to run the Eerie Erie, a nearby 5K race the day before Halloween. The boys were dressed like dragons and ready to go!

That night, we went to Mark and Jamie's for some pumpkin carving fun

The Last 2 Months in iPhone Pics

As usual, life is busy. Here are some of the things happening the last couple of months, seen through my iPhone camera:

The cutest passport photos you ever did see! We are getting ready for our Cancun vacation the 2nd week of December.

While in Sonoma for a friend's wedding, Mike and I tested out Facetime, the iPhone version of video chat. This was such a fun way to "see" the boys while I was gone.

One of Will's favorite past times: Pulling stuff off shelves.


Trying so many new foods now. And look at ALL THAT HAIR!

Finn showing off one of the things he made in school. He loves Imagine Charter School, and we are so glad that we made the decision to put him in preschool. The things he learns every week are really incredible. He knows the days of the week, the months of the year, his 5 senses, all kinds of new songs and concepts, and he's.....

....writing his name!!

Here he is on his 1/2 year birthday, August 22nd, showing us how much he's grown on the wall in the last 6 months.

Here's me, all gussied up to see.... best friend Tristina get married on the beach in Del Mar, California!

A little cuddle on the couch with Daddy and Will. We are hoping to burn all his King Soopers blue shirts in the next couple of months. He graduates in 2 1/2 weeks!! Also in 2 1/2 weeks?....

....this boy turns ONE! Holy cow, how did that happen?
It's been interesting seeing Finn and Will learning to play together. Finn continues to be sweet to him, giving him lots of love. But, he rather dislikes that Will's fondness of biting his fingers.
On the eve of our 9 year anniversary!

It's been amazing :)

Mike the Runner

Something you may not know about Mike: He's turn into a runner. For the last several months, he's been running late at night after he's done studying. Ohhh, around 1am or so. I know, crazy, right? Well, out of the blue, he decided to sign up for Fans on the Field, a 10K race where runners start at Invesco Field (where the Denver Broncos play), head over to Coors Field (where the Denver Rockies play), then run to The Pepsi Center (where the Avalanche and Nuggets play) and then finish back at Invesco. I was MEGA proud of him for doing this race, and we went to cheer him on with signs!

Crossing the finish line

He spots us and our signs

Big congratulations hug from Finn

Holy moly, we are proud of you!!
