Happy Birthday Mama!

We went out to dinner tonight and then came back to our house.

Mama, Owen and Aki
Grandma picked up mama's chocolate birthday cake and Aki led us in singing her happy birthday.

Not just a big card...
She didn't just get a big card...

Happy Birthday to you, mama! We love you!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Here are the jack-o-lanterns mommy and daddy carved over the weekend.

This year, Owen dressed up as a Dragonaut and I was Lulu from Ladybug Girl. Owen started the day with a Halloween Parade with the senior class at his school.

After school, we all rushed home to have a quick dinner with our neighbors and buddies, Luke and Chloe. As soon as it was dark enough out, daddy took us around the neighborhood to trick-or-treat.

Trick or treating bunch
After we were all ready, we took off!

About an hour and 3 streets later, we returned with our pumpkins filled with treats. Owen says he loves all different kinds of candy. My favorites are the M&Ms.
