Happy 2nd Birthday Jacob!!!

On Thursday, November 15, our oldest son Jacob turned 2! I really can't believe that it has been two years since his birth. He is an amazing little man and we can't imagine life without him!
Jacob has had quite the birthday celebration - starting on Thursday morning with yummy birthday donuts and birthday presents from mama and dada. Then Grammie and Papa stopped by and had birthday cake with us that night. The big finale was on Saturday afternoon when we had friends and family over for his birthday party. We were very excited to have a bunch of little friends come as well as all of our family. Jacob is very lucky to be loved by so many people!

Opening his presents from mama and dada - a GeoTrax train set, which I think mama and dada have more fun with!

So excited about birthday cake!!

Not so sure about blowing out the candles . . .

A little more fun when Papa does it!

Birthday presents!! Most of which Jacob had no desire to open himself. It was a good thing we had lots of little hands to help!

This party animal has had enough!

Birthday cake time!! Clearly mama does not have a career in cake decorating in her future . . .

Blowin' out the candles.

Happy Halloween!!!

We had a really great time Trick or Treating last night. The boys seemed to enjoy dressing up, although I'm sure they had no clue why. Jacob went as a little puppy and Aidan wore the Tigger costume. We brought along the walker toy for Aidan to push up to the houses, however Jacob kind of took it over. Reminiscing from his time trick or treating last year I guess. Aidan didn't really mind - he'd just as soon crawl. We hit four houses last night: Grandpa and Farmors, Nan's, Grammie and Papa's and finally Aunt Lori and Uncle Les' house. Thank you for all of the goodies!!

All set to go!

Silly picture with Aunt Riss and Uncle Doug - I can't believe we actually got a picture with Aidan sticking his tongue out - pretty much a coincidence!

Finally at Aunt Lori and Uncle Les' - who all will be there?

Mmmm, forget the candy, Aunt Lori made yummy cupcakes!
(Aidan plotting and executing a yank on Jacob's hair - just a time to get back at his big brother for all of the dog piling and "love taps"
Hey, Uncle Travis was there!

This is Aidan flirting with Luke's girlfriend, Andrea - honestly, she is the only one I have ever seen him flirt with that way - it's adorable to watch the entire thing.
