Halloween 2012

Kayla, Logan, and I went to two Halloween parties this year - one at the church and one at a friend's place.  We didn't get a lot of pictures because I was busy juggling two kids by myself.  Kayla really got into the trick-or-treating this year.  After she got candy at one house I asked her if she had said "thank you".  "No" was her response.  I reminded her that she needed to say thank you, but I don't think it stuck with her.  Oh dear.  Here are some pictures of the adventures:

Kayla taught Logan what Halloween was all about.
Happy little monster!

"All mine!" 
I went to the Halloween party as a dead explosives technician.  (I was told to dress up, but when I showed up there weren't many other adults in costume.  At least I was a bunny! ;) )
Trick-or-treating craziness!  Can you find Kayla?
Good thing her jacket from 2 years ago matches her dress!
Kayla was a little worn out from all the running around.

He survived his first year!

On his original birthday.
Logan celebrated his first birthday on October 5th.  He keeps us very busy with all his walking, singing, teething (he already has 8 teeth and is getting all four 1st-year molars right now!), climbing, and general "getting into things"-ness.  Logan LOVES Kayla so much that when he wakes up before she does, he makes lots of noise until she wakes up in the morning so they can play together.  Sadly for him, he is stuck in his crib and she usually just leaves the room after he wakes her up.

Logan started his birthday with allergy-free pancakes and blueberries.  Most of the rest of his day was just his regular routine.  However, Braden took the day off work so he could spend the day with L-man and we could have a celebration together with some of our friends in the evening.  I made Logan a chocolate cake - allergy-free of course! - that wasn't a huge hit.  Luckily for everyone there I also made a turtle cheesecake, and we had ice cream.  Some of the party attendees included Braden's MIT classmates that came out to Peoria/CAT with us, the Williams family, and part of the Wood family.  Thanks to our friends for coming and celebrating our sweet little Logan with us!

LOVES his bottle!

His cake, new truck from Daddy and Mommy, and cheesecake.

"Hmmmm...what do I do with this thing?"
"I think I get it now..."

The look he gives as he is about to drop his food on the floor.  Naughty boy!

Thanks Mary for helping with clean-up!
Kayla got a present too! (Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Wolf!)
Happy birthday buddy!  We love you!
And his one-year stats:
Height: 29.5 in.
Weight: 23 lbs. 3.5 oz.
Head circumference: 19 in. (which is the same as Kayla's, by the way)
