The Cute Little Bear

This was John's first Halloween to jump into the Trick-or-Treating scene. We had a couple of costumes to choose from, but as you can see in the pictures, John was not a fan of the lion costume. So, we went with the bear costume, which he seemed pleased with. And, off we went with the neighborhood kids. John got the hang of saying 'Trick-or-Treat' quite quickly and had no problem reaching into bowls for the candy. He was careful to just take 1 piece and mommy sometimes steared his hand toward the candy she likes (I mean, hey, if I am going to be the one eating it, I might as well enjoy it)! Overall, everyone seemed to enjoy the first of many nights involving costumes and loads of candy.

Hi Baby!

Tonight we captured a cute little moment with John on video. Whenever we have the video camera out, he wants to see 'the baby' in the screen. So, I typically flip the screen so it faces him while it's recording so he can see himself. During this video, I had the digital screen turned toward him so he could see himself on the screen, and he was quite amused with it as he was talking to and laughing at himself. It's really adorable! Enjoy. (P.S. I have no idea what commercial is on in the background...we were watching the Cleveland Indians in the Playoffs). :)

Another trip to Ohio!

John and I took another trip back to Ohio, but this time, it was for the purpose of gathering with my college buddies as we do every year. John stayed with my parents while I traveled with friends to meet up with the group in the mountains of North Carolina. We had an amazing time, as we always do - refreshed & encouraged from a weekend of laughter, catching up with one another & true friendship at it's best. Unfortunatly, Ben had to stay back in CO to work as he didn't have enough vacation time. So, here is a little glimpse of our weekend.
