This year Henrik decided what he wanted to be. A Robot. Awesome!

I'm a killjoy so Olof's suggestion of making a Bender costume was vetoed. Instead, I had plans of an elaborate light up costume with movable parts! But uhm, he's 3 and that would weigh poor little guy down. So plan b, a kick butt glowing at night, but daytime super cute!

Here are a few shots of the fitting and then the painting.

We went to the Goblin Walk downtown in San Carlos and had a blast!

He met the cast of The Wizard Of Oz!

Almost there...

Today, there was a party at school complete with a parade and cupcakes!

He was licking the frosting off the box!


And glowing Henrik!!

So there you have it, our first Halloween in Belmont. I hope to become a regular blogger again :) Hope there are still a few readers out there!

Happy Birthday Henrik!

Happy 3rd Birthday Henrik!

Must set camera to speed of light. Henrik is fast!

We had a small play date with some new and old friends on Saturday (his birthday). Henrik opened presents as people arrived, which totally cracked me up!

He is enjoying everything, but oh boy oh boy, the bubble mower was the hit. I think he spent 30 solid minutes running back and forth with that bad boy! There was of course much coveting of the mower and unfortunately, it (the mower) needed a nap.

We went out to dinner and Henrik had a BLAST! They sang for him and he got a giant sombrero and a green and purple dinosaur balloon!

Then, when we got home, he put on pjs and then tucked in the mower with a blanket, hug and kiss!

Party Cupcake! He blew out all candles with one puff!

Nom Nom Nom!

Mmm Satisfaction!

Griffin makes cupcake face!

Adrian likes the cake part of the cupcake!
