Happy Halloween!!!

We bought the boys their Halloween costumes a little early this year
and they have just been waiting to be able to get their costumes on.

Annual Halloween party at Grandma and Grandpa Ericksen's house!
The boys, their cousins, and some crazy uncles and an aunt got dressed up in their
costumes for the festivities.

Nursery Paint Job

We are in the process of getting the nursery ready for our upcoming arrivals and decided to repaint (I really shouldn't say "we" because Ben has done all the work - what a great husband!). We're not decorating with traditional colors, but with some very unique colors instead (pumpkin orange & mustard yellow). We'll see how it turns out and I'll update as we go along.

Roughing It!

Our boys have been wanting to go camping for a while now, but somehow it got cold quicker than expected! So, we did things a little differently ... we had a home camp out. Ben set up our tent in the front room for the boys and they roughed it through the night. Needless to say Josh & Jake were thrilled and had a great time (even though it wasn't outdoors).

Ben, Jake, & Josh cheesing for the camera.

Okay, so I am completely new to this blogging business but I thought I'd give it a try! I love staying updated with family and friends and figure this is a good way to do it. I hope you enjoy.
