Halloween in Oregon

One of our last moments in Oregon at Grandma and Grandpa Merrill's house was spent doing a little Halloweening. We carved pumpkins. Ruby was the cutest little elephant ever. Gavin was the scariest ghost you've ever seen...seriously...he had some crazy ghost eyes. He had fun trick-or-treating and checking out all his candy. Ruby was pretty excited about his candy pile as well.

 Ruby was a little cautious about Gavin the whole night. She kept staring at him, and pointing at his face...wondering who was really under that white face.

 I know Ruby's head is totally blurry, but I love this pic with Gavin giving her a little taste of his sucker.

Girls Weekend (Plus One Boy)

While I was in Oregon the kids, my mom and I headed to Black Butte with my aunt Marian and two cousins, Paige and Hallie. We stayed at their beautiful cabin all weekend...relaxing by the fire, going out to breakfast, and dinner, walking around the fun shops in Sisters, swimming, and playing at the park. I was so excited to go back to "the cabin" (as Gavin refers to it)'s been over six years since I had been there. Our family and the Collins' family would go there every other year for of my fondest memories and family traditions. We love Black Butte, and loved being there with our favorite people.
