Trunk-or-Treat, Robot and Lion Costumes

Here are photos from last night at our The Colony 2nd Ward Trunk-or-Treat and Chili Cook-off, I took 2nd place with my White Chicken Chili. David's robot costume was a huge hit, and Spencer had a lot of fun in the bounce house--he is a very brave lion! I, um, sortof didn't take any photos of Jason last night. He wasn't in his Tigger costume, but I will do so today (Halloween)!

Spencer's Wake - Part 1

So, here I would like to show a photo of Spencer's typical daily mayhem. I walked into the kitchen and found THIS! I decided to grab the camera, which was near me, and show you all what happens when I walk out of the room for 2 minutes. He is fearless and bold and EXHAUSTING!

We have had to put up all of the stools in the house so that Spencer can't reach even more things, but we have found him standing on his box of blocks, box of Legos, his toy tank, and even in Jason's bouncy-seat.

Funny quotes from The Boys

Last week, David came out of the bathroom before school and said, "Mommy, my hair looks like sad plants. It looks like plants when they don't get enough water drooping down." (I had spritzed his now curl-less hair down toward his face like George Clooney on ER.)

Tonight at bedtime David said, "Mommy, tomorrow I want to take Spencer to school with me." (They miss playing with each other on Mondays when David goes back to school.)

Spencer is in love with his Cowboys hat, and his new (David's castoffs) Cars pajamas. Yesterday, he spent all day wearing both. Spencer is speaking in short sentences now, and has recently become enamored with the terms, "Go Cowboys" and "Yee-haw!"

When Jason is fussing Spencer will come and alert me, and/or insert a pacifier into Jason's mouth--not necessarily right side up, but it does calm Jason down.

Jason has been smiling now for the last couple of weeks, and Angela has heard him laugh.

Good times.
