Happy Halloween!

Day 1 of the 30 day photo challenge is a self portrait. EASY, this is Halloween people, this kid was definitely photographed.

There are many more pics of trick-or-treating with Gramma, Bethany, Liyah, and the Norrisi here:


We started off Halloween vising daddy at work. Mac has been pretty excited about this visit the past couple of weeks (I was in Denton for a doctor appointment) so I hope it was all he had imagined and more :)

First we showed off Mac and Giddy's Halloween costumes to his coworkers (a monkey and zoo keeper)

Next we went on a tour of campus (so much has changed since we graduated!)

Finally we went to Weinberger’s Deli for an awesome lunch. It was so good that I think I am going to institute a Sandwich Friday in addition to Taco Tuesday

Gideon and I were very happy that Gideon took a 2 hour nap when we got home, he needed his rest before Trick-or-Treating time...

Getting Ready

This weekend was crazy busy. We grocery shopped, baby proofed, put up our Halloween decorations and carved our pumpkins.

Gideon was a big help with the baby proofing, mostly let us know when we had missed a spot.

Later he also was a big help putting up Halloween decorations, although he did take a break to enjoy the grass

Here are the boys working hard:

I think our pumpkins turned out pretty well this year. Mac and I carved them after Giddy had gone to bed. We put on The Shining and had a generally spooky evening.

Party time

We had a great time at Gramma Marcy and Grampa Rock's Halloween party Saturday night. There was chili and a pumpkin shaped pizza (Giddy ate pumpkin puree for the first time) AND we got to put on our costumes and pose for pictures. (well the babies did while we all ooo'ed and ahh'ed)

Hopefully Gramma will post her pics soon because mine did not turn out too well.

Moving forward

As you can see he is able to get where he wants to go, sometimes it just takes a little time and creativity.

Serious Business

For the last couple of months bathtime has had one singular goal: removing all water from the tub through systematic splashing. As you can see, splashing is very serious business:

If this is what he is doing now, am really in for trouble when he starts crawling.
