Photo Friday

Happy Halloween! No costume photos yet since we won’t be trick-or-treating until this evening, but lots of other pictures from a fun and busy week. Chris has finally made it through the recent craziness of deadlines and late work nights, and was able to take yesterday and today off work for a little extra family time. Yesterday we went to the park and carved pumpkins, today we had a bit of a lazy morning and are looking forward to trick-or-treating as a family later on. Lucky Lewis has already gotten a taste of candy today with treats from our rental office and the grocery store. He will be well sugared up by tonight!

Daddy was a bit late coming home one night and Lewis got tired of waiting, so he climbed up in his chair and declared it dinner time despite the fact that most of dinner was still finishing up being cooked.

Photo Friday

Hello and Happy Friday! You may have noticed I missed posting last week. No real excuse, but I seem to be slacking in the photo-taking department. This week has been annoyingly rainy so we’ve been trying to keep ourselves busy with inside activities. We’ve also managed to get a little more cleaning done than usual, which I guess is a bonus. Today the rain has eased up a bit so we went outside for some puddle-jumping. I’ve been working on an adorable Halloween costume for Lewis, and I’m sure next week will be full of fun pictures of pumpkin carving and dress-up cuteness.

We tested out our face paints this week. Lewis requested a jack-o-lantern on one hand and a ghostie on the other.

Hello! You may have noticed the absence of a Photo Friday post last week. This is because we were on our way to my parent’s home in VT to celebrate my sister’s wedding! Hurray! It was a lovely weekend spent with family, and the wedding was beautiful and perfect. Congratulations Cyndie and Dave! Lewis did as well as can be expected from a two year old. He sat through most of the ceremony and then we stepped outside briefly, but came back in to see them walk out. He enjoyed all the food and said that his favorite part of the whole thing was the cake. 🙂

This week has gone by very quickly, I think because the weather has been so lovely and we are spending lots of time outdoors, although apparently not taking the camera along while we are out.

He love popcorn just like his Daddy.

He is loving Halloween so I set out all his dress up clothes as an invitation to play. He picked out all these things and declared it his "witch costume." Yesterday he made himself into a "pig butterfly" with a pair of blue wings and a pink belt tied around his waist and dangling down behind him.
