Halloween was a while ago, but I wanted to finally get some pics of my adorable Buzz Lightyear and Jessie the Cowgirl from Toy Story. The kids had tons of fun, managed to stay warm, and got enough candy to satisfy us all for a few weeks. :) Thanks to our faithful candy-hander-outers again for manning the door while we all got to go out Trick-or-Treating!

Cabin Dirtbiking

Here are some pics from our recent trip to my parents' cabin WAY up north in the U.P. It was COLD up there this year!

It's snowing! We're all still in our pj's, but Mom convinced us to get a quick photo in the first snowfall of the year. Brrr!

Yay for Big Bay (t-shirts)!

Uh, Dad? Aren't you forgetting something?

That's better!

Jake LOVED to dress up in Daddy's dirt bike gear!

...and rarely took it ALL off...

Crazy Jake

Jake and I went outside to try to capture some of his "dirt bike" tricks that he's been working on all summer. He LOVES to ride his bike, and he is so proud that he can do it without training wheels. Usually, if someone asks him how old he is, he responds, "3, and I can ride my bike with no training wheels." Ed is loving Jake's favorite hobby - I am still wondering why we are encouraging it... :)
Riding with one hand...

Riding with "no hands"...(you have to look closely for this one)

Riding with "no feet"...

Standing on his back pegs...

I would have taken a video, but I dropped our camera in Lake Michigan this summer and didn't realize it for about 10 minutes... :)
