Halloween was quite fun this year. Anders really hemmed and hawed over what he wanted to be and Chris even bought him a suit of armor. He used that costume for his school halloween parade although he said it was too hot and scratchy. He went with Chris to his company Halloween party dressed as a zombie. Then for actual halloween night we whipped up a black ninja costume out of a few odds and ends and of course didn't get any pictures of that costume. That night we went trick or treating with a friend of Chris' from work and her son. The boys got along great and they ran from house to house at full speed and really made out well!
Lars turned One on November 5 and we waited until the next weekend to celebrate. We did go out to lunch on his actual Birthday and Anders enjoyed getting out of school early that day. The party was very sweet with mostly family and a few friends. There were a handful of older kids and Anders had a blast playing with them. It was fun to see all the kids running around the yard and playing some game that involved lots of screaming and chasing.
Lars, had fun and mostly liked his cake. He especially loved all the balloons and we got a lot of use out of those for a few days.
The other stuff includes trips to the park, enjoying Malibu Presbyterian church on Sundays, school, loving our local library, playing around the house, watching Lars do new things and just enjoying being a family.
