What We’ve Been Up To

After returning from our trip to Minnesota things slowed down and the weather started getting a little cooler. We celebrated some baptism anniversaries in September and bought a minivan right before David took off for a second trip to Germany.

While David was gone for two weeks I tried to keep the boys and myself busy. I did a good bit of de-cluttering and organizing in the office, enjoyed the park, did some baking, and went to the aquarium.

The next weekend was Halloween and I found a cute idea for costumes on Pinterest. Agh, they are just so adorable. Isaac wasn’t having the costume at first but towards the end he forgot he was wearing it.
