Trick or Treating

We took Jack to the zoo on Sunday for trick or treating. It's hard to tell if he was more interested in the dirt, the animals, or the candy!  He was scared of the talking pumpkin though.

 We had to work on it for days to talk him into wearing the cape and belt. He wouldn't wear the mask or arm bands at all, but isn't the cape that Grandma Harper made cool?!

Just a Bucket of Dirt!

Jack's obsessed with dirt! What little boy isn't I guess, but he needs his dirt time.  However, Friday we had our first snow and today it's been 40 degrees and raining, so we needed another solution! Since Jack's daddy is such a nice guy, he put play sand in a plastic bin in the garage, and Jack's been in heaven!  He's spent hours out there this weekend! And, we've swept the floor countless times too, of course!

 It's hard to get a good picture  because every time Jack sees the camera, he says "smile" and immediately runs toward you. The result is lots of pictures like this one, where he's blurry and right in front of you! I had to take quite a few just to show you his sandbox.
 He and Aspen did get outside briefly yesterday in the afternoon when it warmed up to almost 50 degrees for a couple hours.



 What did he want to do outside, more dirt and more tractors of course!
It's been a nice and relaxing weekend. We'd planned to do a bunch of fall cleanup in the yard today, but since the weather didn't cooperate we've mostly stayed inside today. Of well!
