Our resident Treasure hunter

Luke's ability to collect treasures is unbelievable. He has pockets full of bounty that he adds to his collection daily. It doesn't matter if we are on a walk, in a parking lot, or shopping at Hobby Lobby, his eagle eye will gain him a new treasure EVERYTIME! Here is one day's worth of treasures.

We must not have gone anywhere that day because his loot is pretty light. lol!

Even though I have given him a special cup to collect all of his treasure in, he asks me every day if he can "hang them on his wall". Since that's not exactly the decorating style I'm going for, we decided last weekend that it might be good for him to create something with Dad out of his treasures. This is what he has made...

He was VERY proud of his creation! And I must say, it was pretty cool. He called it a rocketship and has it in a special place up in his room. Now if any of you have any other ideas of what to do with the rest of the treasures please feel free to share.

Sweet as pie

John Patrick is almost 3 months old. I can't believe it! He's losing his newborn look and his little personality is starting to develop.
Here are a few pics that I snapped this afternoon...

It's so fun to watch him grow! He definitely looks like a Larsen baby!

We had a super fun Halloween this year! The kids are at such a fun age to do Halloween activities. Kate's school had a great carnival that we all went to and the boys had lots of fun Halloween activities at their school too. We even ended up with two pet fish from some of the festivities.

Kate is really into posing for pictures these days, which is pretty darn hilarious. Here are just a couple of the MANY poses that she gave me when I was taking Halloween pics.

Caleb was excited to be a superhero even though I don't think he really knows what a superhero is. If you actually called him by his superhero name (Batman, Mr. Incredible, etc), he would get really frustrated and let you know that he was not Batman, he was a superhero! : )

You can see that Luke wore his spiderman mask in the first picture but then quickly decided that he didn't want to keep it on. He only used it to impress the ladies (Sally Claire and Sarah Liza). He wanted to make sure that they saw him in it and then he was done.

On Halloween night, we had some friends over for dinner before trick or treating. Melissa suggested that we all wear costumes. I wasn't so sure about it but it ended up being a blast! We went as a family of superheros. I was SuperMom and Chris was Clark Kent. It's been a LONG time since I've actually put on a costume!

This is the group shot that we took before we went trick or treating. Needless to say, we definitely drew a lot of attention in the neighborhood!
