On Saturday we joined our ward for their trunk or treat, where all the kids "trick or treat" from decorated car trunks in the parking lot. It was a lot of fun! We dressed up as a 50's couple and decorated our car as a sock hop, with rock 'n roll music blaring. We made the kids dance or hoola hoop before they could get candy. Eli (dressed as our little pumpkin) had fun looking around, but he pooped out before the end of the night.

Here's little Eli showing off his pumpkin costume and posing for the camera. He's showing off his strong muscles; he can stand and walk (with some assistance from Dad).

On Halloween, we hosted a small party to pass out candy (even though we only had 2 kids!) and play games. We made up our own version of Live Clue, where each of us hunted our rooms to discover the suspect, weapon and room. It was a huge hit! Here are the cute pumpkins we carved for that night:

Here is Eli at his first football game at two months old. He went to see his Grampa's team (San Gabriel HS). Keith's been having an awesome season so far. Just one more week and they may be league champs for the first time in many years.

Copy Cat

It is so fun to see Elijah's personality emerging. He has started to interact with us by "copying" some of our expressions like smiling and sticking out his tongue. What fun! :)

First Smile

This past week, Eli has started to smile! It is so sweet to hold him while he smiles and coos at you. It has been hard to catch that cute smile on film though.

First Vacation

This past weekend, we took Elijah on his first vacation. We joined my parents up at the Lake Havasu house, and got to take Eli for his first boat ride. He loved it! (translation: he slept the whole time - so we loved it) :)
