Gramps came to visit us this weekend, and the boys loved every minute of his stay. Scott was out of town for work, so my Dad was a great help to me, too! I am pretty sure he was pretty wiped out after a weekend of the boys' gymnastics, reading books, playing MANY rounds of Toy Story Yahtzee, playing choo-choo trains, cheering on the bike rider, playing outside, watching Toy Story 3 and more. We were all sad to see him go!

Gramps and Jack

Gramps and See-Saw

Gramps and the boys (in their new hoodies...thanks Gramps!)

Gramps took both boys out to select a few new toys and books. Sawyer is consumed with this new train!

Jack chose to add Jesse to his Toy Story collection. He does NOT consider her a doll, but she does seem to be very special to him!

Looking forward to seeing our Gramps again!

A bit nutty!

Sawyer loves to sing these days! One of his recent favorites is this tune from school...

I'm a nut (cracks his head)
I'm a nut (repeat)
I'm a nut (repeat yet again)
I'm nutty (makes goofy sounds with his mouth!)

As you can see from the picture, our See-Saw IS a bit nutty!

Happy Halloween!

Our first Halloween in Indiana, and what a treat it was! Jack loved sketching out the designs for our pumpkins this year, and both boys had fun carving with Daddy. Pumpkin seeds baked all weekend long in our oven, too!

Our little pumpkins!

Finally the much anticipated trick-or-treating time arrived! Our neighborhood asks everyone to make their rounds between 5 and 7, and that time couldn't come soon enough for my boys.

Sawyer, the Tiger

Jack aka. Buzz Light Year (no shock there!)

"Let's get this party, started!"

Fellow trick-or-treaters from our cul-de-sac.

Like many other facets of their lives, Jack and Sawyer are very different! Jack ran through the neighborhood with his friends as his pumpkin was busting at the seams. Sawyer took his sweet time, and enjoyed sampling his treats after each house. As a result, this is one of the only shots I have of them at the same house together! With enough candy between the two of them to give our dentist a heart attack, the boys then loved coming home to pass out candy to other kids.

The weekend was full of wonderful "treats"...minus the University of Texas football game. I guess that was the "trick" part of the weekend?
