First snow of 2010!

The snow and cooler weather is finally upon us. Thank you, fall, for staying so long and blessing us with your warmth, beautiful colors, and sunshine! Now, onto winter. John is so excited about the snow. He was jumping up and down today saying, "Winter came today!"

The snow was fun, but we spent most of the day cozy and warm inside the house. We played Go Fish; we danced; we played with Superheros; we made and decorated cookies. There wasn't any theme or holiday we were decorating for...just homemade sugar cookies with frosting and sprinkles, per John's request.
And played with John's drill set.

Sammy played, too.

Look at that concentration. :) He is a very determined little fella.

Fall in Boulder

The boys at the Munchkin Masquerade on Pearl St.
John and his friend, Lake, playing on the rocks on Pearl St.

Sammy fell in love with lollipops during all of the Halloween festivities.


And, finally, the grand finale of Halloween - trick-or-treating with John's best buddy, Isaiah! The little Superheros took the neighborhood by storm and had a blast!

And, some of the wee trick-or-treaters, Sammy and Sophia.

This week, we have had temps in the 70's, so we are making the most of our beautiful weather. One day, we hit the zoo with the Lillies - Jenni, Anna & Justin. Here are Anna and John with mama lion behind them.

Another beautiful day at playgroup - when we asked John and Mercy what they were doing, the reply was, 'We are on a date.' :) Oh, I love it.
Showing mama some of his stunts.

Sammy's stunts are still a bit tamer.

On an early evening walk. Sam loves this little car.

At Isaiah's soccer game.

Sammy's getting the hang of it.

Cute boy!

My dear friend, Natalie (Isaiah's mama), with Sammy and another cutie-pie, Emy.
