Happy November

MoMo has proudly voted in his first election! I asked the women running the polling place if I could take a picture of him with me in the booth - they said no, so we opted for a picture outside of the school. It was very important to me to take him out of his car seat and hold him while he voted. His first civic duty!! He has been growing so fast and now laughs and smiles when he sees us. He has started standing up when you hold him and he can even bare all his weight on his legs. He loves and I means loves to suck on his hands. Derrick has made a discovery that he is so proud of - so when Moses if freaking out and crying Derrick will turn on some rap music and Moses will almost immediately calm down. Derrick loves it...and when it works its pretty awesome. :) He is looking forward to his first plane ride to meet Oma and Opa in Texas. I'm not sure the people sitting next to us will be excited though.

No Trick, All Treat

MoMo's first Halloween! He had too many cute outfits for him to only wear one. So he was Derrick, a ghost and a pumpkin and a burrito! Our small group had a costume party and Moses and Derrick went as each other. Moses was 'mini me.' John McCain and Sarah Palin took time out of their busy schedule to come to our party also! And, yes, he was also a burrito. One of our favorite restaurants, Chipotle, was having a deal where if you can dressed as a taco, burrito, or a salad then you would get your dinner for free. So both Derrick and Moses went wrapped in foil so we could get free burritos!
