 Vessel and Jacob's jack-o-lanterns

The kids had a great time dressing up and "Trick or Treating" this year.  Jacob's vampire costume is the same one Vessel wore a few years ago.  And Vessel's costume is a re-use from 2 Halloweens ago.  Whatev.  It's not like they knew or even cared.  In fact, Vessel wanted to wear his costume every day for two weeks leading up to Halloween!  Trick or Treating was a blast this year and hearing Jake say "trick or treat" was the cutest thing I've heard all day.

Vessel's 6th Birthday!

The day before Vessel's birthday we took him to a rock climbing gym here in Beaverton and he had a great time!  His fear of heights is still a challenge, but he seems to be doing better!  Look at him conquer that rock wall!  Daddy also took him to Chuck E. Cheese while his brothers napped.  A fun day for this kid!

At the Relief Society Service Auction I bid on a cake from Christie Blake and won.  I told her Vessel's favorite color was red and that he wanted a red cake with chocolate frosting and she provided!

Here he is opening some of his presents.  He wanted a remote control helicopter and that's what he got!

He also received Yahtzee Jr. and some pattern blocks.

And here are my cuties in their matching birthday outfits ready for church.

Bald Boys

Mike decided he needed a "change" so he cut off all his beautiful, blonde locks.  Oh, and Vessel's too.
