Happy Halloween!

We had such a great Halloween weekend! Friday afternoon Gavin had his Halloween party at preschool; we played games, got his face painted and had cupcakes that the kids had helped to make. Gavin LOVED his costume and was so excited to be able to put it on for all of his friends. That night we celebrated Mackenna's 1st birthday, we always have such a great time hanging out at Jeremy and Jackie's, and Gavin was excited to play with Braylon. He actually ended up getting sick later that night, but thankfully it was really short lived and we were able to make it through the rest of the weekend like we had planned. Saturday, Nana and Papa gave the boys Sit and Spins - they were so cute and figured out that it was more fun to have other people push them around and around! That evening the boys had so much fun trick or treating in Renville. Owen was so much fun - he figured out really quickly that when you went up to the houses they gave you candy - and Halloween quickly became his favorite holiday! After each house he would hand the candy to one of us and say "open it please!" We had to stop by Nick and Angi's to see the girls. Lauren was such a cute cow girl, and I'm sure Ellie was the cutest witch that you have ever seen - she took her costume off before we got there! Gavin just LOVES them, and was so excited that he got to hang out with all of his cousins the same night! Later that night we fondued - it took us a little while to figure it all out, but it tasted good and the company was great! Laur kept trying to take pictures of her and Gavin - he was just being so funny. Today, I had a blast jumping in leaf piles with the boys! I had been so disappointed because we didn't get to make leaf piles at home this year - Bryan bagged all of the leaves the last time he mowed - but mom and dad had GREAT piles for leaf jumping today! We ended our morning with a little hot cocoa. It was so nice to be able to spend so much time with Owen - we love you so much little buddy!
