Riley's pumpkin collar

As we were carving our pumpkin tonight, we made Riley a pumpkin collar. He figured out how to get it off! Video below....

Beauty in my backyard

I found a new lookout spot in Malibu last weekend. I usually go up to the Heroes Garden at Pepperdine for a good view but this is totally private and hard to find, so I can't imagine ever running into anyone here. All of these photos were taken from the lookout. Finding places like this make me realize how blessed I am!

I came home Friday night to a bundle of balloons from Chris. Balloons make me very happy--it started when I was a young child. For my 21st birthday Chris blew up about 500 balloons (with the help of some fraternity brothers) and put them in my bedroom. He even put all the orange ones on one side of the room since I love orange:) I slept several nights with the balloons covering the room and neck high! They would occasionally pop in the middle of the night which was very startling. My roommate finally had enough of waking up to balloons in her face so I popped them, but I kept them all and still have them.

Riley was very intrigued by these balloons as you'll see in the video below...

Sweet Dreams

When I walked into our bedroom last night this is what I saw--my baby sleeping like a little baby on my pillow. I just love him!!
