Parachutes & Halloween

Hi there, How are you? I had forgotten that I took these pics last week. Things have been a bit crazy--though that's typical. Anthony's chief retired from the AF so we went to see a large group jump (60 total if I remember) on Thursday. Ethan had fun watching the plane & then trying to spot the jumpers. It was nice to see Anthony during the day & be invited to the event.

After a ton of browsing & comparing we decided to have a cute, ferocious lion for Halloween. (: Ethan had fun (after a meltdown w/ the eyeliner) at the trunk or treat with our combined wards. The turnout was great & costumes were fun to see. Ethan got to see friends about 5 or 6 times this week (plus lots of v.t. appts with mommy) so we're thrilled he's happy in nursery again. He put up a good fight for a couple months.
During the lion face drama, I suggested we draw a nose on ourselves. I had Anthony stamp his nose on Ethan's & then we had to pin him (nice, I know) to draw the whiskers. He was happy in the end, though the nose lasted maybe 3 minutes. Glad we took these right away..It was a fun night with ward friends.

We love you,
Anthony, Chelsea & Ethan
