Happy 4th Birthday

Last weekend was Elliott's 4th Birthday.  It's hard to believe that he is 4 already.  We had a lego themed birthday party at Chuck E Cheese's.  It was really nice to have the party not at home, since I didn't have to clean before and then re-clean after.  We had a lot of kids this year.  We had 8 cousins, Holly and a small group of friends.  It was busy, but a lot of fun.  His birthday was on Saturday and the party was Sunday.  We opened his present from us on Saturday morning.  He was so excited for superhero legos.

Holly is 16 months old 

Elliott is 4

We've been very busy building and re-building many lego sets in the past week.  


It was a rainy and cold night, which is pretty typical for Oregon.  We went to a few houses as a family, then I took Elliott out and we did a loop around the neighborhood.  Here are a few pictures from Halloween this year.

Earlier in the day Holly was wearing her costume and playing with T-Rex 

Not the best weather for pictures, or the most cooperative kids.  I think they are stunned here.

The day before Halloween, Tuesday the 30th, Elliott got to wear his costume to Preschool.  The kids did a short parade for the parents.  They had tambourines and maracas and marched in a circle around the preschool twice.  It was very cute!  Elliott loved wearing his costume to 3 events this year (he also went to a Superhero Birthday party).  Holly can't get enough of her fat ladybug costume.  If she sees it in her closet she will yell at me and point.  Basically, she would wear it daily if I let her.
