This weekend was full of fall festivities! Friday B and I went to Drew's work were they were celebrating Halloween. I really hate the phrase celbrating Halloween because I don't really agree with the principle of Halloween, but don't really disagree with letting your kid dress up and trick or treat. I know, I am conflicted... perhaps someday I'll figure out how to really approach the entire situation. Anyway, Drew's work really goes all out. Each "pod" is decorated according to a theme, and the employees kids all come and trick or treat around the office. It was incredible! They had a pirate ship with castaway:
They had snow white and the 7 dwarfs (Jennifer Bowen, I thought of your daughter when I saw this):
The outfit was complete with a tail and hat (with monkey ears sticking out); unfortunately I wasn't able to get a picture of the tail on Drew. It was cute though, to capture both of my boys with monkey ears:
Mr. B-man, cheesing it up for Drew's coworkers
I can't wait till next year, when Brayden will really understand what is going on! Friday night Drew helped me attack the task of making more baby food. I was running short on a couple of things, and always try to make baby food on the weekend so I know I have an extra set of hands. Just for the record, 4 large sweet potatoes will make SO much baby food! Next time I'll only get 2 :) We also made cauliflower, which B has never had before so I am curious to see what he thinks. I hate cauliflower, so hopefully he won't acquire my tastes on that one!
Saturday we had another costume party for B with all of his friends. It was so fun to see everyone and actually have one of our own to have there dressed up. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that I had my macro lens attached to my camera, and so I wasn't able to really get any group shots. I am having some emailed to me, so once I get them I'll post them later. I did get this good shot of B though, so this is from the party on Saturday:
Saturday afternoon mommy and daddy got to go on a date thanks to Mrs. Linda (a lady that I worked with before I had B). We got to go to the Hog's homecoming game! Someone graciously gave us free tickets, and they were SUCH good seats-- 50 yard line! We had a blast, even though it was a total blowout (as referenced by this picture, taken during halftime. please note the score!):
Best University in the country. OK, maybe that's a stretch, but we LOVE our Hogs!
Sunday was daylight savings time AND it was our Sunday to serve in the nursery. Brayden actually did OK, and woke at 6:30 (which would have been 7:30, which is what I had adjusted him to before the change). I can't complain! He didn't take a nap during any service at church though, so Sunday afternoon was a little rough. Drew graciously watched B while I took some photos of a friend of mine's daughters. The pics came out so cute and I can't wait to show off some of my fave shots! I am still in the midst of editting, so it might not be until later this week.
And that my friends, was our weekend. Hope you all have a SUPER-D-DUPER week!
