Our Baby Girl

Wednesday we welcomed Abigail Charlotte Lodge into our family. She was born 1:59 PM (via C-section) weighing 8 lb 5 oz and is 18 1/2 inches long. We were both released from the hospital today and are very glad to be home! The boys are very excited about their new "baby Abby" and so far have been very good with her. Here's a few pictures from the last few days...

(no she is not actually orange, the coloring is weird and I don't know how to fix it...but at least you can see her eyes!)

Sam's gift for his new baby sister...a butterfly crown. He was so excited to give it to her!

This is about as close as Andrew likes to get to her at this point...
Well, there's a brief intro to our newest addition. So far she is a fairly mellow baby and has tolerated her brother's craziness very well! We are so excited to have her in our family!

Warm Air

Ever since we had to turn on the heater (several weeks ago) the boys are obsessed with the warm air. It's not unusual for me to find them most mornings like this...

Even throughout the day, when they hear the heater click on, they run to lay on top of the nearest vent. Funny boys!

Blast from the Past

This year the boys' costumes were inspired by this picture of Joe and his big brother when they were about the same ages as our boys... Here's our version...

Andrew was having problems with his mask, it was too tight and the eye holes were too far apart. He tried for the picture but ended up not wearing it most of the time!

These picture were at the ward Trunk-or-Treat that was the night before.

On Halloween we went to my parent's house for an early dinner and got to see all the cousins in their costumes. Getting a pleasant picture with all of them together was not really possible, but here's the best we one is looking at the camera, but at least they are all there! After the attempt at the group picture Mom and Dad went inside so the kids could knock on there door and start their trick or treating. Sam was so excited! From there we went with my sister-in-law to the South Hill for the rest of the evening. The boys had so much fun and both really got into it. We were walking for a long time and a lot of it was up and down hills, but neither boy complained or got tired (that they would admit). It was a really fun night and the weather was perfect!

Here's one more attempt at Andrew's mask after I made some adjustments to it...but he still didn't want to wear it!
