Christmas Tree Forest

Frankie loved running through the acres of trees and kept his Grandma and Grandpa B. on their toes the entire time.

Oh Christmas Tree

We headed to the Elgin Christmas Tree Farm to cut down a tree last Friday. It was the first genuinely "cold" (for Austin) day of the year. Having so many choices actually make it more difficult to come to a decision, but we finally did.


School Parade

This was a very small "mini parade" at Frankie's school. It's so much fun seeing all the other kids dressed in their costumes. Love the cowboy and spider outfits!

Halloween Party

We were a little too late for the party at the church up the street. It was already teeming with kids on sugar highs...a bit much for Frankie (and he was already tired by that point). Still, he enjoyed a few of the activities -- fishing and pirate golf.

Trick or Treat!

...smell my feet...you know the rest.

Halloween Night

For the first time, Frankie understood the implications of Halloween - CANDY! Actually, we felt we did pretty well with our sneaky candy prevention methods - all in all he ate four M n' Ms, about 1/3 of this lollipop and a chocolate peanut butter coin. I thought we were doing ok, but he was super hyper after that stuff. Here he is with neighbor Sammy (Tinkerbell).


Halloween Pictures Coming Soon...

But here's Frankie's costume pre-Halloween. As most of you already know, he went dressed as his own bunny -- sleepy bunny (pictured at his feet).
