On Halloween this year our church hosted a fall festival. We enjoyed having Emma in church with us this year and then after a family party. The kids had a TON of fun on the bouncy house, wagon ride, and cake walk. It was a great way to end a family filled Birthday weekend for Logan.

Our first Halloween Party was at Tyler's school. The PTO there put on a HUGE event with bouncy houses and fun fair type events and all the candy in the world!! The kids had a blast in the bouncy houses and all the activities. They hardly noticed the candy until the end of each event when someone would invite them to take a piece out of a bucket and they were taking huge handful's. I am pretty sure Logan fully enjoyed his 3rd birthday!!!
Emma's 1st grade class planned a special fall party at school this year. They began by inviting all the parents into the class to sing a few special songs for the parents and then headed into the multipurpose room to make a pumpkin craft and gather their fall goodies!!
Happy 3rd Birthday Logan Daniel!!
For Logan's 3rd Birthday Logan and I started the day by making cupcakes and having some easy time around the house. Logan's birthday fell on a Friday this year which included many school Halloween festivities. Soooo, we gave Logan the choose between staying home and opening presents with Pizza and a Movie or going out to eat and to a costume party at a local school. Logan was all too excited to dress up and get candy candy candy!!!

Logan's Pre-school class put on a adorable character parade to show off their Halloween Costumes. They were so cute all dressed up with fun instruments and songs. They paraded around the building and outside before coming inside to sing and dance for us. Logan was very cute in his transformer (spider-man) costume:)

We were so excited to have Grandma Terri fly out and watch the kids for the weekend. The kids had a great time. They made play dough, played at the playground, made cookies, helped cook, Emma prepared a church service for them, and enjoyed a few movies and popcorn. Thank you Grandma Terri!!

Matt and I were able to enjoy a trip to Washington DC to run in the Army 10-miler. We enjoyed a few days to ourselves while Grandma Terri was at home with the kids. Race morning was a tad cold and a bit rushed. Matt did great finishing the race with a unofficial time of 69:56 and I finished with a unofficial time of 1 hour 38 minutes. After the run we enjoyed a few hours with friends before we quickly grabbed our bags and caught a flight back home.

While we were in Washington we had a chance to drive over to Virginia and meet up with some old friends from Germany. Matt and Ryan had deployed together to Iraq in 2003. We also were finally able to meet their two little boys. It was so nice to spend a few hours with old friends.

Logan had his first field trip with "school" today. He was sooo excited to ride on the school bus:) The class went to the pumpkin patch. We went on a hay ride and then picked out pumpkins before snack time. While Logan enjoyed the school bus he did not care for the seat belts, so he choose to ride home with me:)

We carved our pumpkins a little early this year. Matt pulled up a couple traces online and let the kids pick. The pumpkins turned out GREAT. Unfortunately; I forgot to take pictures and because of the heat they only lasted about 7 days. We know now, to wait until the day before Halloween next year.
