Happy Halloween!

We had a wonderful Halloween weekend.  The weather in Austin was absolutely beautiful – dry, cool, and not a cloud in the sky.  We went across the street to our neighbors’ house for a cookout before heading out to trick-or-treat.  It was 5 families and 16 kids – I mean, a smattering of fairy princesses, various saints and/or pirates, and assorted animals.  This year, we actually started to trick-or-treat before the sun went down, so we were able to get a few good pics.  Isaac was a fireman, and Liesl wore a pumpkin onesie.

We practiced saying “trick-or-treat” with Isaac, and also saying “Thank you”.  However, most of the time he said “Thank you” at the beginning, and “trick-or-treat” after he received candy.  There are a few more pictures here.   Mommy and Daddy are now enjoying all of Isaac’s candy. :)

Quick Trip to Frisco

Before the semester started, Isaac, Liesl and I went to Frisco for a few days to see the Martin’s.  We had such a good time.  Below are a few pictures from our trip:

We went to the Dallas Arboretum and had a wonderful time.  The boys especially enjoyed “Texas Town”.

We tried to get some good pictures of the boys and the flowers.  But by the time this idea occurred to me, they were really tired:

Luckily, Janell got a great picture of the kids and I:
