Halloween carnival & spook alley...

Our family went to the annual Halloween carnival.

The boys are excited to play carnival games.

After the spook alley we headed off to play carnival games.
And of course winning prizes.
Dimitri throwing the football. Look at that perfect throw.

The boys played countless games and by the end of the night we were ready to go home. The boys won lots of prizes aka candy and trinkets perfect prizes for a Halloween carnival!

Two year check-up & Flu shots...

Zachary had his two year check up.

Zachary is such a big boy, they checked his height on the wall ruler.

And the big boy scale too! Zachary was 34 inches tall
and if we remember correctly he was 32 lbs.

After Zachary's appointment it was time for Flu shots! Dimitri
was acting so tough and appeared to have no fear...

Well...that was until she poked him with the needle. Both boys cried when they got their shots but soon recovered! least we don't have to do that for another year!

At last Pumpkins...

We finally got a chance to decorate our pumpkins.

Mommy and Dimitri work on their pumpkin.

2009 Fall Family Photos...

Dimitri was ready for the photo session to end. In all fairness, he did not feel good at all and later that night we had to take him to Kids Care where we found out he had a stomach virus.
Our sweet boy is growing up!

Our big boy! is hard to believe that in a few days, Zachary will be 2!

Party like a rock star...

On Saturday, we held Zachary's 2nd Birthday party at Jungle Jim's.

Our baby is growing up!

Yummy cake!

Don't forget the ice cream.

After cake and ice cream it was time to open presents. Zachary
had the biggest smile on his face when he saw his new
remote control truck.

Zachary enlisted Dimitri and Kira to help open presents.

Mommy, Mada and Dimitri got Zachary a train table for his birthday.
As Zachary says, " Choo Choo... All Aboard".

Before Kira left she gave Zachary a birthday hug!
These two are so cute together.

On the way home Zachary was out cold, he was so tired. The funny thing is we put him to bed when we got home and less then 10 minutes after putting him down we heard him playing with all his new toys, apparently he was not as tired as we thought.

We would like to thank EVERYONE who came to his party. We had a wonderful time playing with family and friends.
Happy Birthday Zachary!
