We started our Halloween at North Park's Trunk or Treat. Charlotte was a little unsure of all of the people in costumes at first, but she warmed right up and was eventually dancing around the parking lot- her favorite thing to do lately!

Enjoying some M&Ms.

We met some friends from church so that Charlotte could hang around with their son, Sawyer. He was a viking and was so cute!

Then we headed over to another Trunk or Treat to see some of Kyle's family and some of our friends.
Charlotte and Kendell.

Charlotte spent most of the evening dancing to the live music. Here she is dancing in the back of the Berg's van.

Playing with Auntie Amy.

Trying on a Halloween costume possibility.

Getting a real kick out of herself in the mirror.

We recently took Charlotte to Indian Boundary Park. It was so awesome and Charlotte had a blast! We will definitely be going back.

We recently made a visit to the "pumpkin patch." (Home Depot).

My sister and her boyfriend, Pete, joined us.

We came back and enjoyed some chicken chili, pumpkin pie, and apple crisp with my two best friends in the whole world, Amy (and Pete) and Megan (and Scott). After we put Charlotte to bed, we watched Charlie Brown and carved our pumpkins. It was a total blast.

Our pumpkins turned out pretty awesome too!

Charlotte has been really helpful around the house lately.
She helps Daddy wash the dishes.

And she helps Mommy bake.

She also makes everyone who comes over read with her.

This post is long overdue. We also have not taken very many pictures since we moved. But, here is what we have...

In August, my mom had Charlotte and I over for a pool party one day. Charlotte loved the pool, mostly climbing in and out of it.

At the end of August/beginning of September we went up to camp for Erik's installation. These were sadly the only few pictures we took. This is Charlotte enjoying some zucchini bread in the lounge of Cedar.

And Charlotte taking a shower with Kyle.

Charlotte and I did some baking together....

In September, when Courtney and Erin were visiting, about half of the Mecher grandkids took a trip to the children's museum.

We take frequent walks around campus with Charlotte to visit friends or play with the leaves or on the stairs.

She's really into pointing lately.

Not so much into me, but that's okay.

Rainy afternoon couch cushion fort building with dad. He's pretty fun.

And Charlotte's first real haircut! We took her to this place in Lincoln Square called Pickle's Playroom "a Clip, Sip, and Play Cafe." So, we got a haircut and 30 minutes of playtime in the playroom.

No more mullet!
