Jack has also been totally into his trains again. He goes in phases with his interest in trains. He will be all about his train set one week, and then he wants nothing to do with it the next week. He is ALWAYS all about his cars, trucks, and tractors though! This past week he was excited about his train set again, so he played with it tons. He really likes Thomas the Train (even though we don't have any Thomas toys). We're getting him a Thomas the Train DVD for Christmas and one Thomas train car.
We had a very relaxing Thursday and Friday at our house. A few of our daycare kids were gone, so it was nice to have an easy couple of days with them all! Today we are going to Matt's parents' house to celebrate our nephew's first birthday. Should be a nice time!
I think we're ready for Halloween. We carved two pumpkins yesterday and we'll finish the rest this weekend. Matt and I both love carving pumpkins. Matt gets WAY more into it than I do though! I'm your basic "triange eyes and ears and a smile mouth" pumpkin carver....and Matt likes to make much more intersting shapes and figures on his pumpkins. Jack likes taking the stem lids on and off.....but he's not crazy about touching the pumpkin guts. I didn't take any photos of our pumpkins yesterday because we carved them with the daycare kids, so it was kinda hectic...but I'll take some photos of them this weekend. I'm not sure if I mentioned what the kids are going to dress up like for Halloween. Jack is Darth Vadar (totally decided on by Jack....and very enthusiastically encouraged by Matt) and Macy is going to be Princess Leia. I made some Princess Leia hair buns for Macy's costume. They are freakin' adorable! We'll post photos of both costumes after Halloween!
OH, and my birthday is November 1st!!! I'll be 29, which is wierd cause that is the age that everyone OVER age 29 always claims that they are......but I really will be 29. TWENTY-NINE. Still sounds young, but that is just way too close to 30. We don't have much planned. I think I know what I'm getting for my birthday, but I'll find out for sure this week....
