Erik's turns 2!

On November 2, Erik turned 2. It was great besides that we all where sick. Early that morning Erik woke up throwing up and then on top of that we all have colds. I was suppose to make Erik a dinosaur cake but because I was so sick that didn't happen. Had to go order a cake the day before. There also wasn't a lot of people there because everyone didn't want to come over with everyone being sick. Thats ok because we still had fun. Erik really didn't know what to think at first because he had seen sister open present after present the week before. When he realized they where for him, he was in Heaven. One of the presents he got was a "Cars Backpack" and i think that was his favorite present. He has been carrying sisters old backpack around forever and so we decided to get him a backpack and his expression when he opened it and saw what it was, was priceless. He also got an umbrella which he loves, no longer stealing sisters. He also got way excited for a Elmo Birthday card. Overall he had a great Birthday and got lots of BOY TOYS, which he loves. Can't wait for Christmas

His Elmo Birthday Car

His Backpack

Blowing out his candles. He was way excited for this and new what to do right away. Before we could even sing Happy Birthday he had blown out his candle so we had to relight the candle

Halloween Night/Majlin's Birthday

The day at last catching up to her
One last present

Majlin excited for us to sing Happy Birthday to her again!

On Halloween Night we just sang to Majlin and she blew out her candle. We had left over cake from a couple days before and we just used that. Needless to say no one had cake that night and the cake went in the trash. We where caked out. It being the 3rd Birthday singing in a week.

Trick or Treating

We ran into cousin Bristol in town

We went Trick or Treating in our town and at the Church. Unfortunately Erik was coming down with something and by the time we got to the church he had enough. Majlin on the other had could of kept on going and going.

So of course on Majlin's Birthday/Halloween she had school but luckily they had a fun day planned. They did a parade and a Halloween Parade. Majlin did so good.

Trick or Treating at the Hogle Zoo

Majlin and Jennifer

We went Trick or Treating a week before at the Zoo. It was a lot of fun, but crazy! It was like Disneyland on its busiest day. Grandma Boren went with us, Nanna Johnson and Jennifer Rassmussen. I know i'm spelling her last name wrong. Sorry.

Sorry there is no sound. Can't figure out how to turn the sound on when i record videos on my camera. Still a cute video though.

Carving Pumkins

Grandma Boren with Majlin and Erik

If you look at the far right one its a cat. Grandma did a great job carving it.

We had only carved 3 pumkins but decided to do another for Erik

My mom was in town for a couple weeks and she was able to attend all the fun Halloween activities. She also helped us carve pumkins. She is now gone and it was sad to see her go. We had lots of fun with her.

Majlin Turn's 5-Jumpin Jacks

Majlin at Jumpin Jacks in the Jungle Theme room.

Majlin turned 5 on Halloween but we celebrated it 3 times. The first one was her Birthday party at Jumpin Jacks with her friends. The second one was with family and then the 3rd one was actually on her Birthday. We really don't do much on her Birthday because its Halloween and we are super busy on that day. We basically sing to her and have her blow out a candle and then give her one present. I can't believe that she is 5. Where does the time go. She no longer is my baby.
