Here are some pictures that we took before Roo left.  The boys miss him and are counting down until he gets back.

Ty at his Thanksgiving program.  He just stood on stage and didn't sing a single word--but he sure looked adorable!

We went to Mobile to look at Christmas Lights and the day after we went to the Childrens Museum.  The kids loved it!

Ty is definitely more into getting dressed up than Ryan ever was...we might have to invest in some outfits.

The kids had a great time for Halloween.  Thankfully both kids were fine with wearing old costumes, though at the last minute Tyler said that he wanted to be Superman.  Thankfully I was able to talk him into being the shark...and he looked adorable!

He didn't want to wear his costume...but once he was told that he had to wear it to get candy, he put it on.

Enjoying a trunk or treat at Roo's work.  It was pretty warm here (and they are sweaty kids) so we didn't keep them in their costumes for too long.

Our ward also had a Trunk or Treat--they had a blast!

More from Korea

Get ready for a million pictures from Korea! 

While Roo and I were in Japan, my parents took the kids to a CafĂ© where dogs "live".  I'm sure Ty had a fun time getting to pet all the puppies!

Taking the bus back to the hotel.  Public transportation is the way to go in Korea.  I definitely enjoyed the bus more than the subway because it was a pain to go up and down all the stairs with the stroller and with 2 kids in tow.  Thankfully they are good travelers and did pretty well for the most part.

One of the nights that Ty fell asleep on the bus ride home.

My parents were rock stars and watched the boys for us so that Roo and I could go for a getaway alone.  When first planning a trip we wanted to go to Thailand (to get some cheap massages)...but I'm not very good at geography and didn't realize how FAR Bangkok was.  So we stayed much closer and went to Tokyo.  We had a great time!

After a 14 hour flight with kids it was nice to be on a plane alone!

At Shibuya Crossing.  This picture doesn't even do it justice with how crowded it was.

In honor of our family and friends who love sushi we decided to at least try it in a fish market. 

I've never used a bidet before this trip...but I have to say, Japan has it going on.  I especially like the sound option. 

Only in Asia...

Some of our food...it was delicious!

Coex Aquarium

Once again I am apologizing for falling so far behind on the blog!  In October we went to Korea to visit my parents.  The boys had an awesome time!  I'll be sure to post more pictures, but here are some from the Aquarium.

A few weeks ago we went to a doctors appointment because earlier in the summer we'd noticed that Ryan had some hearing loss.  The hospital was about an hour and a half away so we made the day of it.  The town had a Texas Roadhouse which was having a children's night and the boys had a great time getting up close to the firetruck.

Enjoying a bagel before school.  I have about 40 minutes to kill in between the kids' school times and going home is way backtracking-- so Ty is spoiled and gets bagels.  A lot.

Ty had a great birthday and got spoiled by Uncle Andy and Aunt Nikki!
