A couple of funny ones

For our Family Home Evening, we learned about Nephi and how he built boats to get to the promised land so Chrissy thought we should let Marshall splash with his boats in little tubs! Marshall, his diaper, and the entire floor was soaked after just a few minutes. He understood how to maximize his splashing and quite enjoyed getting wet.

This is Marshall's friend, Will, attacking Marshall's face. Luckily Rachel saved the day. It's fun to watch kids play and explore together.

The last picture here is Marshall with Santa Claus. I didn't know Santa started working before Thanksgiving, but great! Marshall is posing here for Mom after he told Santa what we wanted for Christmas: a motorcycle, a new snowboard, beef jerky, and an extra cell phone.

Halloween & a visit from Grammy

We enjoyed a terrific five day visit from Grammy. A few weeks ago we sent her a few pictures of her Grandson, and she couldn't help but buy "emergency" plane tickets to come see her only grandson. We didn't know this until Grammy arrived but apparently they have discount prices on plane tickets for emergency visits for Grandparents. The website is Not really. Anyway, we had a great time touring Minneapolis taking advantage of the pleasant weather and blue skies. Behind Marshall in the above picture is the famous cherry & spoon sculpture. This big hunk of steel is at least 50 feet long and took three years to build! Wow.

We also went to the Children's Museum in St. Paul, the Twin City of Minneapolis. Marshall enjoyed crawling around, listening to new noises, and crawling all around. We had a great time hosting Grammy - you are welcome anytime Grammy!

Halloween...what an anticlimactic holiday unless you are young enough to go trick-or-treating. Nonetheless, we still dressed up ourselves and Marshall! Here is a picture of our little devil - we couldn't resist dressing him up in this. We opted out of trick-or-treating because we figured people would know that we would just eat all of the candy that they gave Marshall.
