One Big Halloween Post

 Whew!  Halloween was so busy this year!  We have had a fun, busy last couple weeks.  Drake has been so into Halloween this year so that has been really fun.  He decided to be Flash this year. He is so into superhero's and so Chris's mom made his Flash costume for him and Drake was so excited!  Sonja actually had two costumes this year.  Mainly she was a goldfish which was my nieces costume and they were nice enough to let us use it. And then Chris's sister made her a little batman shirt and skirt so we had her dress up in that too.  Actually today was Drake's school Halloween party and I wasn't going to dress Sonja up but Drake told me she had to wear a costume too.  Haha, he is such a good brother!   And Sonja looked so cute in both the costumes! 

These  next three pictures was from a couple weeks ago when we went to a party at our gym.  This was the first time Drake could wear his costume so he was so excited!

What a cute little goldfish!

These next few are from today before Drake's school party...
Bat Girl!!!

The super fast Flash!

  And here are some of Drake at school with some of his friends.

You can't really see but they let Sonja come in the picture and so Drake is holding her (well, more like smothering her)
Drake's Class

At MCW (Chris's school) for their trick or treat. This is the best one ever because it is inside, they get tons of candy and it is just so fun!  In this pic is Drake and Sonja's friends Oliver, Hazel, Jackson and Mason.

Here we are at the trick or treat at the zoo.  They had a little pirate show their and Drake wanted to get a picture with the pirates.

Go Packers!

 We finally decided that we just needed to go for it and go to a Packer's Game.  I know that if we do move away next year and didn't go to a game we would definitely regret it.  I am so glad we went.  It was so much fun!  It was really cool to be there in person and to be apart of the whole experience.  It was  a little chilly, especially since the sun never hit the part of the field that we were on, but at least it wasn't raining or snowing.

Outside the field
The view from our seats.   We lucked out and got pretty good seats!

 And of course I was excited to get to see sexy Clay Matthews in person!!!  Haha.

Drake Fun Days

 A couple weeks ago we had a groupon for ice skating and decided to take Drake.  We left Sonja with some friends and had some much needed Drake time!  Drake was so funny trying to ice skate.  He had a ton of fun but mostly just liked to be silly and slip on the ice.  Towards the end he was making some progress though!

Right when we got there the Zamboni was out and Drake LOVED it!

 Sorry, the video's are sideways for some reason....

 Today Drake and Chris had some father/son time and went to Lowe's for their little craft time thing.  They made a monster box which is really cute!

Wisconsin Fall

We have been trying enjoy Wisconsin's beautiful fall right now.  It has been a little chilly be we have had some nice days that let us get out and enjoy.  We love this time of year for many reasons.  It is beautiful, I can cuddle under a blanket and read, I finally want to actually cook on our stove or oven again, football has started and Halloween is coming up!  Here are some pictures of what we have been up to the last couple weeks. 


Drake and I were playing outside a couple weeks ago and he found this toy hammer in the garage.  He then decided he was Thor.  So that is why he has it sticking out of his shirt, haha.

Can you find Drake???

 Last week after church we went to Lapham Peak to enjoy the colors of Fall.  It was kind of cold so we didn't stay long but it was fun to get out there!

Go Sonja!

I think we have a walker!  This week Sonja has started to just stand up in the middle of the room all by herself.  Then last night she took one step.  And today she took about 5! Crazy how they just all of the sudden can do things.  Here are a few video's of her working on how to walk.  First is Drake helping Sonja walk, next is her showing off her standing skills and finally of her walking!

Sonja is One!

 My sweet baby girl turns one tomorrow!  Since we don't have any family out here in Wisconsin we decided to throw a little party for her with some friends.  Sonja didn't really know what was going on and had no interest in opening presents but she definitely had fun.  Especially when she got to eat her cake!

Look at that "cheese" face.  I love it!

Chris and I got her a stroller for her birthday.  She isn't quite walking on her own but loves to walk and push things around.  I didn't take a picture but Drake picked his own present out for her and decided to get her a Rapunzel barbie.  He is such a cute big brother!

Sonja has attached to her little pink elephant (Elie) blanket so we thought we would do the cake after that.  Chris and I worked as a team doing this. I baked and Chris decorated.

So much pink.  Unfortunately, I think Sonja's favorite color is pink.  So other than her Elie cake we frosted an extra cake and some cinnamon rolls with pink.

 Do you think she enjoyed eating the cake????  Haha!

I don't know why I didn't get more pictures of everyone at the party.  I struggle!  Anyways, here is Drake and a bunch of his friends that were at the party.  We invited 4 families to the party.  We are so lucky to have such great and supportive friends out here!

Happy Birthday sweet Sonja!  You have such a fun and quirky personality already, I can't wait to see what you are going to do/be like in the year to come.
