Two Witches

We decorated our pumpkin this afternoon. Grandma B sent Cayden a set of those Mr. Potato Head pumpkin decoration kits so that's what we did this year. Turns out that it is perfect for little kids; it doesn't take too long (which is great for Cayden's short attention span), doesn't cause a huge mess, doesn't involve sharp pointy objects (well, except for the screwdriver that we had to use to make the initial holes in the pumpkin), and is a lot of fun! Cayden had a blast and is very proud of his "wich pumpin."

Le pumpkin.

Two witches. Cayden decided that he wanted to be a witch just like his pumpkin. (I personally think that Cayden makes a much cuter witch!)

Oh! P.S. Grandma B - Cayden is wearing the shirt you got him. He loves it and wears it at least twice a week; I wash it EVERY time I do laundry. :)

Picking a Pumpkin!

The weather last Saturday was perfect for pumpkin picking. We opted to go to our local garden center rather than an all out pumpkin patch as Cayden quickly loses interest in things - maybe we'll go to an actual one next year? Anyway, we had a lot of fun and Cayden ended up covered in dirt.

Cheesy smile on HUGE pumpkins!

Cayden and Daddy

Cayden and Mommy (His face cracks me up in this one!)

Absolutely love this picture of our family!

Picking out our "pumpin."

Cayden decided that he was tired of being pulled in the wagon so he hopped out and told Chad to get in. Cayden is one strong little dude - he pulled Chad several yards before we made him stop.

Baby Dos

Thank you all for the congratulations! Here are some of the details that I know you are all dying to hear... ;)

I'm 18 weeks and a few days (at least for the time being) and feel pretty good, except for being tired frequently. I've been craving anything that is junk and am trying my best to not eat it. Baby Dos is due March 15 and we find out what we're having on November 2nd (just over 2 weeks away!). Boy or girl is just fine. I think a boy would be fun for Cayden once he got a bit older, but I totally want a girl. So really, we're happy with either. Oh, and we've already picked out names. So excited!

Now if only I could fast forward to March and avoid all the "joys" of pregnancy. *cough* gaining weight *cough*

Oh, and don't forget to cast your vote as to whether Baby Dos will be a boy or a girl. (Poll is located on the right side of our blog, you might have to scroll down a little bit.)

Cayden's First Movie!

Tonight Chad and I took Cayden on a 'kid date.' We went and got hamburgers for dinner and then took him to see his very first movie in a theater... Cars 2! Luckily we have dollar theaters nearby and so if Cayden didn't like it we wouldn't be out too much money. Cayden was so anxious for the movie to start; the previews couldn't go by fast enough and he kept asking when he would see 'Mader' and 'Qween.'

SO excited for the movie! Look at that huge smile!

Like Cars, Cars 2 is two hours long. Cayden only made it halfway through before he started getting antsy and wanted to go home. Getting popcorn didn't even fix the problem. Chad took him out to the lobby for a few minutes hoping to get his wiggles out, but to no avail. We ended up leaving the theater with a screaming boy who couldn't decide whether he wanted to go home or stay and watch. Poor boy was crazy tired and really cranky despite having a long nap earlier. Guess we'll have to Redbox it later to finish the movie.

We did manage to calm Cayden down long enough to snap this picture on the way out. Cute boy.

Just Like Daddy

Cayden is becoming just like his daddy...

Should I be worried or not? ;)


Auntie Rachelle, the following pictures are for you.

Cayden's sweet new shoes. He likes them a lot and wants to wear his "new shoos" all day.

Showing his shoes off for the camera. He promptly fell over right after I took this picture.
