with TONS of photos!!!
Addie and I are off to Seattle very shortly. Spike and Dean are following next Saturday. We are all so EXCITED....Addie keeps saying "we are going to Grannie and Grandpa's Hotel."
Thought I better get the Sept./Oct. photos up before we have tons of new Nov. pictures.
I LOVE fall.....Sara and I made these banners in Sept....LOVE how they came together.
September in our part of the world was GORGEOUS!!!
Spent a couple glorious weekends at Grantchester (on the river Cam in Cambridge.) It's one of our favorite spots in all the world. It's the perfect place to set up camp, bbq, have a (very cold) swim, play cricket and generally laze around in beautiful surroundings. How crazy are those pics of Addie??? She found those glasses on the river bank (loved them) and she lost her hair clip in the river, so ended up with that giant scrunchie out of the bottom of someone's bag.
We had a parent's only weekend in London the beginning of September. We ate at Belgo (Belgian beer + fresh mussels = guaranteed good time!!) We saw Chicago and shopped and shopped and shopped!!!! Also took in the Victoria Albert museum.
Addie is the cycle queen. She got on Dean's old bike over the summer, took of pedaling like mad and now (finding that incredible speed is not exciting enough) has turned to all sorts of "tricks"...she seriously does all kinds of spinning on the seat and stands on the cross bar and scoots herself along!
Spike had a week in MN with the Hafermann's the beginning of Oct....came home with Viking's gear for the whole family!
Dean lost his first tooth the day Spike got back. He was so THRILLED!!! He said "Wow Dad, I bet you are SO GLAD you made it back in time to see this!"
Halloween was so much fun!! We spent the day carving pumpkins and getting ready for our party. We had lots of friends with kids over for a party + trick or treating....SO FUN!
Dean's pumpkin (on the left) was Yoda and Addie's was the SCARY pumpkin. Yoda turned into spicy pumpkin soup on Nov 1st and The SCARY one turned into sweet pumpkin puree which I froze and will turn into a yummy sweet soup! How carbon neutral is that.....no WASTE AT ALL...haha!
She changed her outfit about 14 times...but this is close to what she ended up wearing.
My favorite pic of the whole night!!
Now I am off!!
