Five Months

Time is surely flying by. Nate is five months already.  Don't you just wanna squeeze those cheeks?

Father Son Art Project

AJ was dying to make a paper bag mask after he saw the cubscouts make some last week.  He wanted a spaceship mask???  Well, I think he was very excited when Taro decided to help him make one.  Did I mention he is obsessed with Star Wars?  I wonder where that came from???  All day long, I hear "Dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum!!!"  (Darth Vader music) and then repeat.  A few hundred times.  Then to change things up, he plays it on the piano.  Not kidding.

Nate's First Halloween

Nate slept through most of the Trunk or Treat, and he didn't go out on Halloween night.  So, how do we celebrate his inaugural Halloween?  Strip him down and stick him in a pumpkin.  HA. HA.  It was really cold, so we didn't have a lot of time to get him to laugh.  But AJ managed to get a few smiles from him.  What a good sport!

The New Ride

Goodbye old car.  We'll miss ya.  We had a blast driving you for 112,000 miles.  But we needed something bigger.

Hello new car!  Can't get much bigger than this.  Ha ha.  We love it already!  Especially AJ who has opened and closed the sliding doors a million times already and says "That's so Cool."

AJ Turns Three!

AJ wanted a truck cake for his birthday.  Okaaay!  This was my attempt.  Taro said it looked more like a dune buggy.  Whatevs.  AJ liked it and that is all that matters.

Watermelon Truck (or something that kinda looks like a truck)

Ripping his presents open along with his buddies Taylor and Ryan.

Stoplight and race car cookies.

Spiderman likes Sushi

Spiderman getting ready to go Trick or Treating.  Saying he was excited is an understatement.  Telling you he said he was done after three houses is the truth.  But we pushed on and probably made it to another 15-20 houses more.
Showing you some Spiderman moves.

And some more.

Nate making his Halloween debut as a piece of sushi.  Yum, doesn't he look delish?

Hey Edward, where's Bella?

Nate stole some candy from AJ's basket when he got home.  Yes, several houses were giving away full sized candy.  Score!  For AJ of course.

Remember when?

Time flies by.  He just turned 3 on Saturday.  I'm not sure how old he was here in this video.  I recently found a few of these videos that I had never seen before.

Birthday and Halloween pics coming soon.
