Erin and Preston visit

Auntie Erin and Uncle Preston came to visit us this past weekend. The weekend was a whirlwind of activity. Nathaniel climbed his very first mountain at Villa Montalvo. It was a small one, but no small feat for his tiny big-boy legs. We also spent some time at the playground testing out Nathaniel's early birthday present of a big bucket of balls with a built-in tee. Nathaniel had great fun hitting ball after ball with his baseball bat.  The kids also got to go on a special outing to the playground with Erin and Preston.

Costume Parade!

To celebrate Halloween, Nathaniel's preschool had a costume parade. They made costumes out of paper bags for all the kids and marched around the neighborhood near the school. They made a pit stop at McDonald's for a ice cream. It was an incredibly cute site to witness!

It's getting to be that time of year, the leaves are turning and, fall is in the air. Our German Friends Britta and Jorg hosted a fantastic Oktoberfest party to celebrate all things German. The party featured some awesome face painting and pumpkin decorating for the kids in addition to plenty of German beer and pretzels for the adults. Nathaniel's spider man face was pretty cute until he fell down and cried and smear red face paint all over his parents shirts. Thankfully it's all washable.

Lillian participated in her their school walkathon this past week. Every year they get a new colored T shirt second grade get's orange (Nathaniel's favorite color). Lillian walked 66 laps this year, just a few shy of what she walked last year. Nathaniel even joined her and walked a few laps himself.

Just how cute can we be?

Lillian and Nathaniel have been spending their free time trying to see just how cute they can be.  This includes dressing up in princess gear, and making your own rouge out brick-dust paint.  It also includes fashioning flowers into crowns and tiny fairy princesses.
