October 28, 2007 - trick or treat!

in Whitefish Bay!

Mama and her little spider; Colin checking out all of the kids in costumes

Colin showing off the candy he got next door (and no... he didn't even get to eat any of it :); walking to the Johnson's with the trick or treat crowd

Melissa (dressed up herself!) plays with Colin; Colin with his SPOOKY friends ( :)
We had our neighborhood trick or treating this evening from 4 -6 pm and made a party out of it! Craig, Melissa, Nick, Marissa and David came over to help pass out candy, drink hot apple cider and see Colin in his super cool spider costume!

October 28, 2007 - driving?

Although Mama wasn't so sure about this one... Colin was definitely ALL ABOUT being the front seat driver while we were playing outside Sunday afternoon...

October 26, 2007 - Dancing at the Bavarian Inn

The Mamas let their main men show them a few of their new moves on the dance floor at the Bavarian Inn's Friday Fish Fry (some of which were learning the chicken dance... and just a whole lot of running around and dancing all over the restaurant) - So much fun at the FFF!

October 23, 2007 - to school we go!

and Colin is all smiles for the sunny yet chilly morning ride!

October 21, 2007 - season's end encouragement...

October 19- 22 - Visit to StL

Here's Colin visiting with his Great Grandmas (giving them lots of hugs and kisses) and learning about animals with National Geograhic Kids on the computer with Grandpa.

October 19, 2007 - first AiRpLaNe ride!

Colin took his first weekend trip on an airplane to St. Louis to visit Grandpa and family/friends with Mama. Colin loved the ride there and was so excited to see Grandpa!

Mama and Colin had a great weekend visiting (Mama went to a wedding while Colin got spoiled by Grandpa) and were both a little overtired on the flight back to Milwaukee.

Colin loved watching the plans and trucks out the airport window...

October 18, 2007 - helping make enchiladas

Colin helped Mama make dinner tonight... he had to taste every layer that we put in the enchiladas and then even helped to roll them up before we put them in the oven!

Colin did an even better job helping Mama EAT the enchiladas after we cooked them!!

October 14, 2007 - presents from across the world

Auntie Marissa ventured across the world and brough Colin these cool puppets from Austria! He loves them, thanks Marissa!

October 12, 2007- rain boots!

Colin couldn't get enough of these rain boots that Mama just ordered, as silly as he may look in them!! (and yes, she will be returning one of the two pairs :) and then we both tried on our new rain boots.... now we just need some big puddles to splash in!

October 9, 2007- Big helper

Colin is such a good helper when Mama is cleaning around the house- he loves to sweep the most!

October 7, 2007 - After bathtime fun

October 7, 2007 - walking up stairs

Colin is getting really good at walking up and down the stairs (as long as the handrail is short enough for him to keep a tight hold!)

October 6, 2007 - Apple Holler

Check out these pumpkins...
Mama and Colin on the wagon hay ride!

Colin and Mama spent the afternoon at Apple Holler with Lauren and Brendan. We had SO much fun (regardless of the 80 degree weather in October)!
We fed goats, went on a hay ride, ran around a corn maze, and oh yeah, picked pumpkins!

See the photos of the entire afternoon HERE!
