Fire Station

A few weeks ago the boys and I ran into some fireman in the grocery store. Parker did not let go of the sticker they gave him for the whole day. The fireman told us we could stop by any time to check out the big fire truck, so today that is just what we did. Parker and Garrett were both a bit apprehensive at first but after a few minutes they were able to enjoy the whole adventure. A special thank you to the fireman who took the time to make today special. Both boys even got little fire chief hats. If you have not done this yet in your neighborhood, I would highly recommend it. ( I would call first just in case they aren't as friendly in your town) So fun and so free!

Just Because

We love you. Through your ups and downs. Through every mood. Through every tantrum. With every hug and every kiss.Every laugh and every cry. Every frustation and every joy. Every smile and every frown. You are one complicated kid and we love every bit of you.
Patiently waiting to get in the car for preschool. I couldn't resist getting out the camera.

Halloween 2009

This was my first attempt at making a halloween costume for one of my boys. It could have been better, but also could have been way worse. Parker decided he wanted to be "Casper the friendly ghost" for Halloween. So, that is what he got. I spent the whole day before Halloween making his costume. It wasn't too hard to make, just a bit time consuming to get it to fit him just right since I didn't have a pattern. We wanted to use white face paint on his face but in a time crunch we ended up putting sparkly white eyeshadow all over his face. haha. I thought he was a perfect Casper with his HUGE blue eyes. When people asked him what he was dressed as he didn't just say "casper" he had to add "the friendly ghost."

Now for our little CHICKEN. I did NOT make Garrett's costume and I am so glad I didn't take the time to make one since he wore this for a total of maybe 3 minutes. He hated it. "but isn't he smiling in this picture?" you ask. Yes he is, but this was literally the only smile we got out of him. Distraction I tell ya, distraction. Both boys did well with staying up past their bedtime to trick or treat and surprisingly even better at church the next day. Shocker!

A special thanks to my Aunt Linda and my cousins coming over to hang out and trick or treat with us. We had such a great time with you!
