I realize that according to the radio, Target, and the mall, it's Christmastime in the city. If your tree is up already, I'm sorry to remind you of that distantly past holiday we call Halloween. However, I just got these pictures off of Nate's camera, and as most first-time mothers often do, I feel I must catalog the events of "baby's first Halloween". Here's what we did that week:
Grayden and I went to California with Nate for a few days, he's been traveling a lot for work. Since we had to be home in three days, there was a lot to do. First, we carved a pumpkin for Family Home Evening. (We were neither home, nor was it evening, but we're a family so it counts). Grayden's job was to help scoop out the seeds:
And then to pose with the finished product:
Then, do we ever go to California without dropping by D-land? (answer: no, we do not)
First, we put on the Mickey Crocs. Thanks Jame!
Then we attempted to warm up a very cold baby. Phoenix has spoiled this child.
At dinnertime, with what was Grayden so fascinated?
And finally, we went on the ferris wheel. I always forget I'm afraid of ferris wheels until I get on one. I'll take the highest, fastest roller coaster in the world over the ferris wheel.
For Halloween, Gray wore the costume Aunt Melissa gave him last year before he was born. I've been surprised at the number of people that can't tell what he is. Seriously? He's a brown leather oval with white stripes around each end and white stitching up the middle. I can't think of anything else that falls under that description.
He's a football, people, a FOOTBALL! Sheesh.
Ok, now you can turn the radio back on and rock around the Christmas tree all you want.
