Photo Friday

Happy November everyone! Halloween last week was great fun. Lewis really enjoyed trick-or-treating. He loved seeing people’s decorations and of course is loving getting to try all these new candies he’s never gotten to have before! We’ve been allowing two pieces a day (one with morning snack and one in the afternoon) but he frequently attempts to weasel more out of us. We had a bit of an “adventure” on the way home from trick-or-treating. I pushed the stroller over an uneven section of the sidewalk and bump-snap, off came one of the front wheels! Not really surprising as this stroller has had a lot of pretty heavy use for 2+ years now! I’m still debating whether to just order a replacement wheel part (about $25 with shipping) or invest in a whole new stroller. Decisions, decisions. I was very lucky that Chris had taken the day off work and was along with us when the stroller broke. It would have been quite a pain trying to juggle carrying Lewis and pushing a broken stroller one-handed the rest of the way home!

This week we’ve been enjoying some really lovely fall weather, with just a touch of rain mixed in. Mostly it has been “warm” and lovely for playing outside, although the time change is messing with our schedule! Normally we go out and play for a while in the evenings, but now it seems to get dark almost as soon as we can get out the door after Lewis’ nap, so we are working on adjusting and trying to fit in more morning outside time. Unfortunately Lewis’ neighbor friend J is at school during the day so we haven’t been getting to see as much of him recently as we’ve been used to.

Anyway, on to the photos!

Trick-or-treat!

Lewis helped me make some pumpkin oatmeal cookies, but then he wouldn't eat any. More for me!

He requested that I take a picture of him with his Hobbes.

Went to the library for story time Tuesday, only to find that they were closed for election day. But then we found some dried milkweed plants in the parking lot and had a lot of fun tossing the fluff in the air!

Back at the library Wednesday for story time session #2. Lewis got mad when I tried to bring his hat with us, but later decided he'd like to wear my hat. On top of his hood.
