This Halloween we took Owen & Eden to a few neighbors houses for trick or treating. Owen was kind of unsure about it, but loved the candy! Here is my handsome Tiger & pretty pony:

Later that week, Grandma Tickles & Great-grandma Farmer came to visit. We played at the house a lot & went to the fall party at the church. We loved having them in town!
Below is a picture of Owen & his beloved friend Kaisa at the harvest party. Its so fun now to see Owen & his friends interact really well together. I love watching them learn & grow up. Now whenever we come to one of the church parking lots Owen yells "Kais!" (usually without a reminder from me that we are going to see her!) Such a smart boy. I also put some other pictures of Owen & Kaisa from the fall.
Another visitor we had this fall was Aunt Mandy! Mandy is in the process of switching jobs & just moved back to Kansas City so she came and visited for most of a week. We loved having some laid back time with her. The kids just adored her!
Owen & Eden continue to mostly coexist but more & more we are watching Owen's interest in her grow! He now calls her "E - E" and is concerned when she cries after a nap, says "shh" when she's sleeping and laughs when we talk to her at breakfast. Here are some photos of the two of them.
The other day it snowed & Owen was in love! The cold did not deter him from wanting to play in the snow. He ate it, of course. He made snow balls. He just loved every minute of it. Here is our Minnesota blooded son in his winter get-up!
On Tuesday, Jon surprised with my Christmas present early. When we woke up he told me he made dinner reservations at 5:30 and that I needed to look nice. I asked how nice and he told me I needed to wear a dress. Needless to say, I was giddy all day! I was so excited & even borrowed a friends dress just to have more fun and feel like I was wearing something "new." He brought me to dinner at a friends house where some of the Grand View students served us dinner in a romantic setting. Then he presented me with tickets to Wicked! I was so so so excited to get to see it. I loved my christmas present! Thanks Jon!
To finish this long post, here is a picture of how Owen now begins the morning carrying his stuffed animals from his crib to the breakfast table. I love him so much!
