Brennan's 4th Birthday!!

 (Better late than never right?)
I was in California with Edith the weekend before Brennan's Birthday. Logan was kind enough to watch the boys while I left. On Saturday Logan decided to make Brennan a birthday cake! They put candles on the cake and sang to him as well. An early birthday I guess? When Logan told him Sunday night that the next day was his birthday he was so excited and said, "Am I going to be 5?" ha ha! I had to laugh. Every birthday you turn a year older right? How was he supposed to know the Saturday cake and singing (even one present) wasn't his real birthday? That's why this birthday cake is half eaten into. I wasn't about to make another cake and have 2 cakes sitting around for us to eat. 1 is enough.
 Sweet boy! Blowing out his candles.

Two presents from Mom and Dad. Sock! How exiting right? He actually loved them and still talks about his new birthday socks.
Piggy Bank. Brennan has been fascinated with money lately. He had a little ceramic we were putting money in for a while. I figured I would get him a real bank. He's been collecting aluminum cans and plastic bottles for money to put in his bank (you know $.25-$.75 at a time). He is thrilled to earn money and put it in his bank. We just don't drink soda or buy bottled water. . . . so it's few and far between his can runs.


This Halloween we went to three event. First the Zoo Boo at the city zoo, second our ward party Trunk or Treat, and third the Children's Museum. We didn't take out kids out trick or treating in the neighborhood because I felt like they had had enough Halloween. By that I mean that had plenty of candy! Brennan really enjoyed handing out candy at our doorstep and will enjoy going next year. Maybe I'm a party pooper, but honestly he didn't know what he was missing and he has already loved the idea of Halloween.
Brennan was the robot he was last year. I wasn't going to argue with him when he didn't want to be anything else! Easy enough. 
Trevor was a puppy. It couldn't have been a more fitting costume. Trevor is obsessed with dogs! He LOVED them. He sure was pretty cute in this costume! My sister made this costume for her son (who is now almost 12), shared with my nephew, let Brennan wear and then passed to Trevor! It's great to re-use and recycle right? (Above and below pictures from the Children's Museum on October 31st, this was our last event - sorry out of order)

The Zoo Boo. Brennan had been talking about going to this for weeks after I told him I purchased tickets. He was thrilled to wear his costume for the first time of the year.
Logan was able to go with us for a short hour an a half before he had to head to work (working the Saturday night call shift).

 Trying to get a group shot. Trevor wanted nothing to do with it.
 Happy Puppy with his Daddy. This boy (and Brennan) love their Dad so much!

Ward Party Trunk or Treat. This was second event of the holiday. Brennan sure loved this one most I'm sure - because of all the candy. We still have some up on our fridge for after lunch treats.

Every year our ward has a chili cook off. People bring their favorite pot of chili and people taste and vote. It was great to try so many recipes. The one I loved the most won! I asked for the recipe and we've been enjoying it for dinner the last few nights!
