Check out this beautiful and inspiring story about the Nielson's.

We had a great Halloween this year! Justin really got into it for the first time and was excited to go trick or treating. Justin was a lion because he loves lions and has a very ferocious "roar." Isabelle was a beautiful purple fairy simply because I fell in love with the costume. Unfortunately, we couldn't get very good pictures because the kids didn't want to hold still and we couldn't get any of them next to each other because everytime Justin would go to stand by Isabelle she would run away from him! He had been bugging her all day and I think she had had enough by that point!

Pumpkin Carving

I was excited for us to carve pumpkins this year because I thought that Justin would really enjoy getting messy. Boy was I wrong! He didn't even want to reach inside at all but he did enjoy watching Dave and coloring his own pumpkin. Isabelle was not really interested at all but content to run around us and eat Dave's necklace from his Uncle Rico costume.

The pictures ended up backwards, so here is the finished product first!

Eating the necklace

Coloring the pumpkin

I really think Dave enjoys carving the pumpkins and letting his creative side come out.
