Halloween was fun this year. John got to be St. Michael and Peter was St. Anthony (one of John's old costumes). We trick-or-treated to one of our neighbors houses but then went to the party at our church and "trunk-or-treating". Andrew won a huge jar of M&Ms for guessing the closest amount. Woohoo!

St. Michael and St. Anthony

All the loot!

So excited about the lollipop!

So big!

Peter at 1 year old

It was so hard to keep him still for this picture. He is a man on the move!!

Peter's Birthday Party!

Hard to believe Peter is already a year old!! The year went by so fast! I still think of him as my little baby, although he is pretty good at walking now so that makes him seem older. 

We waited a week to celebrate his birthday, so my parents would be back from their trip to Italy. It was a great party! I chose the theme "Very Hungry Caterpillar" because this little boy loves to eat! He is always asking for food and grazing for crumbs that drop on the floor. This is a change for me because John always has to be torn away from is toys to eat a meal.

Thanks to everyone who came to the celebration!

Haha, John looks funny here :)

Bellingham in October

In mid-October we took a trip up to Bellingham to see Andrew's folks and go to a Brian Regan comedy show. Andrew surprised me with tickets to the show on our anniversary in August. It worked out well since we had some grandparents to babysit!

We always have a great time on our visits to Bellingham. Can't wait to go back for Thanksgiving in a couple weeks!!

We also had fun at the neighborhood park. Although, John did get a bloody nose, as you'll see below...

 John is such a good kid! I instructed him to hold on to Peter on the slide. He sure did, even when they spun around backward. He took one for the team!!

Apparently Peter has a hard head!

At the show with my handsome date!
