Happy Halloween everyone! I dressed as a pumpkin -- didn't take much doing, I must admit!

Bryan dressed as Napolean in the Halloween parade on Monday -- yeah . . . imagine the trombone player in the front row wearing this!!!Joshua doesn't have a chance at being "normal" with parents like these, does he????

Joshua's first Halloween experience -- we really practiced "roaring" like a lion! Just ask Bryan how many times he was in and out of that car seat!

Our first stop was the Wellers -- they are planning on watching him when Baby #2 arrives!

Way too cute!

He was more interested in getting the candy than in "roaring" like a lion!

One happy camper -- the pumpkin is filled with candy!

Like father like son . . .

What can I say?

Our little "taker-apart-er!"

Bryan took advantage of the beautiful weather last night to go flying. Joshua is SO attentive when he flies -- it is the ONLY time he will sit on my lap (what's left of it) for more than 5 minutes. No joke! Joshua still really loves airplanes!

Today is October 11 -- my due date is November 11. Mercy.

Today we went to the Hands-on-House -- with Daddy! It confirmed in my mind that Joshua is a very active boy -- he wouldn't stay at any one station for more than 2 minutes, but strangely enough, I noticed MANY other kids perfectly content to play in one place for 10 minutes. He definetely keeps us on the move! It is so much fun to see him run from one thing to another, though! He liked "driving" the tractor!

These are like huge Lite-Brite Pegs.

They have a really cute grocery store section for the kids.

The "na-na"

Bryan helped Joshua build a "Thing-a-ma-giggle" -- an assembly-line project. Quite the process, I tell you!

Pure intrigue!

Of course, Joshua was into the "ball."

It's not quite designed with a 2-year old in mind!

I think you were supposed to put the apron and goggles on BEFORE you built your proejct, but we wanted until afterwards!

"Moo" -- one of Joshua's limited vocabulary words!

Discovery of the Weekend! Several weeks ago I noticed that hose/attachment feature of the sweeper had absolutely NO suction, however, the regular part worked just fine. I had resigned myself that I would probably have to buy a new one (goo) but my wonderful husband agreed to take a look at it. Well, he unscrewed the bottom cover, and lo and behold . . . SOMEHOW, there were several magnetic alphabet letters just chillin'. Undoubtedly, Joshua had figured out how to open the "hatch" for the hose and insert the letters. Amazingly enough . .. my sweeper works again!

Yep . . . there were 6 of them!
