Happy Halloween

Halloween is such a fun holiday! I love the creativity of the costumes and the excuse to eat lots of candy and treats (as I polish off the last bit of pumpkin cheesecake). We had a great time trick-or-treating around the campus of Thunderbird and got lots of loot. I promptly confiscated 90% of the sweet stuff and then let Sierra eat the rest this afternoon. I was surprised that she actually threw away most of the candy after a bite or two- except the smarties. Tonight we attended a festive party at Greg and Amy Giauque's home. Sierra decided that for the evening party she needed to be a ballerina dancer so we forewent the panda bear she wore earlier. Gideon was our little pumpkin- a cute one at that. It's so fun to gather together with friends to celebrate these fun holidays.

Party Time?

So I don't know what most of you were doing at 2:30 am this morning but you missed the party! I was up with Gideon (who goes from 0 to starving in 2.4 seconds) which woke up Sierra. While I was busy feeding the little guy, Sierra found my church shoes and was prancing around the kitchen in them proclaiming that she wanted pizza. I just sat there laughing and watching her in amazement at her ability to take advantage of ever opportunity to live life to the fullest. I have so much to learn from my children!

It's Fall

It's finally fall here in Arizona. Today there was a cool breeze that rustled the leaves and made it seem like it's actually October. After such a hot summer the cool air feels heavenly and we try to spend as much time outdoors as possible. Friday we went to a pumpkin patch with some friends and had a great time.

Our New Arrival!

Gideon Jay Forbush joined our family on September 26th. He was 6 pounds 9 oz and 19 inches long. We are so excited to have this new little guy in our home.

Sierra LOVES being a big sister!
