Today is the little ones absolute favorite day of the year - Halloween! You get to dress up and get candy. What is not to like?!
He had an amazing time and loved running from house to house.

We waited till the absolute last minute so we could make sure our pumpkin was relatively squirrel-chew free.
The little one had a lot of fun.

He's loving this kid-friendly camera.

The cat is not enjoying our cuddle pile right now.

My parents drove out and visited for the day with us. Quinn was excited to show them everything in the house, which he usually does with them. There might be a new toy they haven't seen before!
We also celebrated my dad and Chris's birthdays since they were this month. They even brought a cookie cake out for Chris, which he loved.

I came home from work and this little guy was curled up on the couch sleeping.

It's going to be a long night after he wakes up.

I found this in our pantry this morning. Our kid lives for Halloween, so he will be excited to look at the box.

We had cake, there were presents, and of course all kinds of decorations around the house. Quinn had a lot of fun celebrating Chris's birthday and i'm pretty sure Chris had as good a time sharing it with the little guy.

 Tonight the little one and I decorated for Chris's birthday tomorrow.
We tried to put up everything we could find and to confine Chris to one part of the house so it would all be a surprise in the morning.

He's been enjoying this Sago Mini doctor play set. He gave all of his toys a checkup this morning, which became quite involved.

It's another chilly day but we decided to go out and enjoy some Halloween-themed stuff at John Ball Zoo.
 We ran into a co-worker of mine and they're adorable little girl.
 And stopped to see lots of animals.
As well as the decorations. The most important part were all the candy stations, and we managed to hit all of them.

It's a chilly day so we're staying indoors and playing with some Play-Doh!

My dad sent the little one these fun tattoos.

Work has been pretty intense all year, but especially the last 6 months. A bunch of us went out for drinks and to relax after work and it was worth it.

We are getting big into stuffed animals these days. He's been piling more and more onto bed every night.

Lately we are stuck together like glue. He wakes up several times in the night and I have to put him back to bed. In the morning he crawls into our bed to snuggle even more.

I forgot ICQ even existed until I saw this amazing license plate.

We stopped in for a bit for a friend's mother's memorial service today.

Today is Lorelei's 5th birthday, so we celebrated with her and a few of her other friends. The kids all had a really good time.

Chris turned on the debate while the little one was taking a bath. It was...ugh.

Now that he is bigger he can start wearing some of the costumes we picked up on clearance a few years back. He loves dressing up and running around the house in different outfits and has been begging to try on Spider-Man for a while now. Halloween is really a fun time of year!

The 3 year old has been loving StoryBots lately, and his favorite is the green character. He asked me over the weekend if we could make one so tonight we did. We even ended up with glow in the dark eyes!

We went over to the local playground after dinner. The days are growing shorter so I guess we have to take advantage of the sunlight while it lasts.

The little one has been bouncing off the walls today. We took a trip to the park on this very warm fall day and he shot off like a rocket, racing ahead of me. He definitely needed some room to run.

Chris has been under the weather this weekend, so I took the little one out for some fun. We ended up at Dave and Buster's. Since I have leftover funds from a work event, it was a perfect opportunity to play lots of arcade games for next to nothing. 
He was very focused on winning something tangible, so he ended up with a number of cards and chips from a game to be turned in for points (and a prize).
He's also getting much better at eating out. While he still only rotates through a handful of different foods, he sits still and listens much better, which means we can go out and do more things!

It's a pretty Halloween-centric Saturday. I finally made a Micky Mouse Halloween sheet for the little one's bed.
We decorated the house with all sorts of spooky and creepy decorations, including a bunch of construction paper bats.
Then we topped off the day with Halloween cookies. Ghosts and pumpkins and more!

He's so excited for Mario Party!

We assembled the OctoCam today. It's nice to finally have a Raspberry Pi Zero W. The few we have don't have wifi so it's nice to have such a tiny board with wifi on it.

We've been practicing making his bed the last few weeks and he's been getting good at it. It's hard with the three crib sides, but he does well.

This is definitely a theme with my work computer.

We finally assembled the cardboard skeleton we'd cut out earlier. He was pretty excited to get it hung up in his bedroom. This kid lives for Halloween!
