Robin's Birthday

We celebrated Robin's ??th  Birthday yesterday.  After church we went to her favorite Mexican restaurant and then came home to relax a while before she opened her gifts and had ice cream cake.  The kids had fun helping mommy open gifts.  After the birthday festivities, we all had fun with a fire in the fire place and roasting some marshmallows for smores.  Below are some of the pictures we took.

Miriam's 2nd Birthday!

Here are pictures from Miriam's birthday which was November 4.  We can't believe our baby girl is 2 years old already!

Fall/Halloween 2013

Here are some pictures from this fall.  We enjoyed a warm fall.  Neal has had to travel a lot out of the country the past couple months.  We're hoping his travel will slow down a bit this winter.

Heading into the YMCA for trick or treating while mommy exercised.  We had a rainy & windy Halloween.

Josiah passing out candy to the few brave kids who went out trick or treating in the wind storm.  He had so much fun handing out candy.  He kept complementing kids on their costumes.  Miriam was upset that the kids didn't come inside to play with her.  :)
