October in Review

October was so much fun! This was the first year that we really got to experience autumn in all its glory! The trees turned oranges, yellows, and reds, and we went out on hikes as a family & with friends and really enjoyed the outdoors. Colorado is beautiful!

Maya tripped on the rug in the living room, and managed to give herself a fat lip. It was very pathetic!

We also painted Maya's room pink, at her request. Mama was offering other color ideas like yellows and violets, but Maya is such a girlie girl, despite her mother's best attempts! So, pink it is! I painted the baseboards white, but it was after I took the photo. Whoops!

In preparation for Halloween, we carved a lovely pumpkin together, and put him on the front porch.

We had a fun Halloween party at our house, and invited lots and lots of friends over. We even had a pinata, and painted pumpkins!

After the party was over, we headed out to the airport in Denver, still in our costumes, and hopped on a plane to Arizona! It was Wyatt's first airplane ride, and the first Maya could remember.

We went trick-or-treating with Uncle Dan, Aunt Autumn, and cousin Emily for Halloween. We cruised around Prescott just east of downtown. It was crowded, but lots of fun! We even went to the courthouse to watch all the Prescott cousins and Aunt Hanna be part of a flash mob who danced to Michael Jackson's "Thriller." Some people didn't really know the moves very well, but it was still all good fun! Baby Yoda did not want to wear his ears. Little turkey!

Update Your Blog, Ya Slacker!!

Well, that was the longest I've ever gone without blogging! I think I'll go back and update month-by-month beginning with October.
