Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

Halloween play date and our weekend

On Friday we had some friends over for a Halloween play date.  Austin loves having people over and has become very social with his little friends up here.  He asks every morning what we have planned for the day and who we are seeing.  =)  He was very excited for his friends to come over in their costumes.

I love Pinterest! All the recipes for the treats came from Pinterest.  Halloween Cat CookiesIMG_4652
Halloween Pumpkin Rice Krispie TreatsIMG_4653
The pumpkin chocolate chip muffins came from my friend Lindley. They were delicious. IMG_4654
We did a couple crafts together.  Simple crafts that 2 & 3 year olds could do like scratch the Halloween ornament and make a sucker ghost. IMG_4655 IMG_4656 IMG_4668 IMG_4670
And just enjoyed being together with our Boston friends. IMG_4660 IMG_4663 IMG_4677 IMG_4674 IMG_4694 IMG_4719 IMG_4716 IMG_4711 IMG_4695
After the party my little Curious George was totally tuckered out. IMG_4722
On Saturday we headed to the Children's Museum. This was David's first time to go so the kids were thrilled to show them some of their favorite things. Listening to Llama Llama while daddy reads to Miller.
 Reading books
Playing with the tools.
Building Showing daddy
Working hard
Driving the bus with daddy. Driving the car
On Sunday we woke up to this....I mean, are you kidding?!? It's only October 30! I don't think we are ready for this winter.
 First Boston snow
When we came home from church we had no power so it caused all of us to snuggle up in our beds for long naps. =) After naps we carved our pumpkin (in the dark). IMG_4724 IMG_4729
These little guys spent the night drying out so they can be baked to enjoy later. IMG_4730
Because of no power, we enjoyed a tasty burger at Tasty Burger! Tasty Burger
We are looking forward to a fun filled Halloween with our little monkey and duck!
