Back in the middle of September we took the opportunity to travel across the mountains to Utah to meet my older brother's bride-to-be and spend time with cousins new and old. It was a wonderfully sunny weekend and we enjoyed getting to know our sweet new family members. The kids had a great time playing together and we loved spending time with everyone. (I know these pictures are really late in posting, but I thought they were too cute not to share.)

Halloween was super fun this year. Jake understood the concept of trick or treating, and though most of the time he whispered the words, he liked getting a treat in his bucket each time. He wouldn't let Brian or I carry the bucket for him as it got heavier...he made us carry him and the bucket! My little boy in his Spiderman costume surely was adorable, and the neighbors echoed our thoughts with many comments. One lady said, "You're so cute, you can have all of my candy!" And as two teenage girls followed up behind us at the door, the same neighbor teasingly said to them, "You're not cute, but I guess I'll give you candy anyway."
