Snow Daze

We got snow! Lots of snow! And, of course, we had to go play in it. :) These pictures were taken both yesterday and today. Yesterday there was only about 2 or 3 inches and today there was at least a foot! Here is our Mr. Snowman...unfortunately he's hard to see because he's in front of the snow covered car:
Very proud of the snowball he made:

It's up to her knees!:
Yummy! :)

Annabeth playing very sweetly with her Princess Jasmine:
Ethan burying Princess Jasmine!:
And, of course, a few pictures of our third child. :) She wasn't too sure about the snow...especially today, as it was as tall as her!:

Fun In Seattle

I love going to Seattle. I would never want to live there but I love to visit. Quadrant Homes sent us 4 free tickets to the Space Needle, so last weekend we took the kids into Seattle to see it. They loved riding the elevator to the top...Ethan said it looked like we were flying! :) Annabeth is still a little young to enjoy the view, but Ethan thought it was "really cool". It was cold but sunny, and we all had a really nice afternoon.
Ethan liked to hop up on the rail and look down:

The Framing Walk-Through

This week Brandon went to the first walk-through of our new house. All of the framing and the exterior is finished!! It's going up so fast!!

May The Force Be With You

Here are some pictures of the kids in their Halloween costumes! I'm pretty sure they're the most adorable Darth Vader and Yoda you'll ever see. :) Brandon even bought them the correct colored light sabers...

Annabeth is pretty funny...she walks around saying, "I'm a Yoda!" And Ethan LOVES his costume -- he asks me every day if he can wear it.I love this one because it looks like she's performing a Jedi mind trick:You will give me candy for dinner.

Fall Fun

We finally made it to the corn maze and it was a lot of fun! :) The four of us and Grandma (Amy) trekked through the maze for a good hour or so. Ethan liked being the leader and picking which direction we would go at each fork in the road, while Annabeth's favorite part seemed to be opening every corn cob she could find (she was only allowed to open the ones that were on the ground). This was Ethan and Annabeth's first trip to the corn maze -- I think that this will end up being a fun fall tradition for all of us! :)
Mmmm...Hot Chocolate!:
Grandma helping Annabeth open the corn:
Corn Sabers! (Like father, like son!):

I love these two just because they were both walking along the same way, with their hands in their pockets:

This evening we finally managed to get our pumpkins carved. The kids LOVED pulling the guts out! It was a lot of fun to watch them. :) Brandon carved the faces while Ethan preferred to draw his faces on. And, of course, we had to roast the seeds...Yum!
