halloween was fun and busy this year. stone was more into it than last year and knew all about trick-or-treating. he decided he wanted to be yoda this year (actually, josh decided for him and then talked him into it....stone didn't really have a preference as to what he wanted to dress up as). my office always has the kids come over at about 4:00PM on halloween and trick-or-treat to all the offices...so my mom brought stone down and we did that, then we went home to pick up josh and headed to mya's great grandpa's neighborhood to hit a few houses.
by the time we made it up to grandma patti's house to trick or treat the kids were ready to be done so they decided to break out the water colors.
my office is fun and does a costume contest and pot luck every year. the winner usually gets a gift card to a nice restaurant here in town. a lot of people in the office are party poopers but there are a few of us that still dress up every year. this year i went all out and made my costume (i actually wasn't going to dress up because of my big pregnant belly but my mother-in-law suggested this idea and i thought it was a great one so i went with it)
on to stone's birthday. i can't believe he's three already!!! his actual birthday was on thursday and it was a tough day for people to make it to a party and josh had to work late doing inventory so we didn't do much....kim and i took the kids to arctic circle for lunch and let them run around and play for about as long as they wanted and when josh got home from work we took a little family trip to baskin robbins for a birthday ice cream cone. we let stone pick whatever flavor he wanted....he picked cotton candy with chocolate sprinkles (yuck)
i made owl cupcakes
i just can't believe that my baby boy is already 3! he's so big and so smart and we love him so much.
so that's what we've been up to. and now it's novemeber......time to start the holiday craziness!
