...THIS IS A LONG POST!
I think we are just about Halloweened out after this week. On Tuesday we went to a lady's house who is in the Spanish department with Bret. They have this pumpkin carving party every year and this was our second year going. There usually are some foreigners there who have never carved pumpkins before. They seem to really like it. It's fun meeting them as well. The lady's husband was really playful with Kade and Kade loved it! He had so much fun!
On Wednesday a girl in my ward asked me to watch her daughter who is a little younger than Kade. Her regular babysitter couldn't do it, and she was desperate...and let me tell you it was HARD with 3 young kids! Although she is a good little girl and Kade and her played really well together most of the time. My playgroup had a Halloween party that I dressed all of them up and took them to it. (Which was a brave act on my part!) It was a little hectic, but we had a good time and got some good candy from all the festivities that went on there. Kade was dressed up as this little tigger:
We also carved pumpkins on our own this week. Kade actually liked digging his hands in the guts! I was pretty surprised! He is quite the little copy-cat. If I used the spoon; he would use the spoon, if I used my hands, he would use his hands. He does this sort of thing when we eat dinner as well...for the most part unless he decides he doesn't like something.
Then on Thursday we had our ward Trunk or Treat. It was a lot of fun and Kade got a bunch of candy from that! Maggie was SO SO cute in her little flower costume. Bret and I tried to look like we were dressed up too... And Kade also looked really cute in his cookie monster costume that Grandma Linford sent him. He thought it was pretty cool. By the end of the night though, he was ready to have that extra head off of him! He was really good at saying trick or treat...apparently he knew those were the magic words to receive candy!
And I just wanted to post this cute pic I took of him before church yesterday. He looked so cute I had to get one before he took the tie off and un-tucked his shirt.
OH! I keep forgetting to post about Kade and his NEW BIG BOY BED! (Thankyou craigs list once again) We were going to put it up and get him use to it, but he was acting like he liked it so much we decided to try it out. It went really well. The first few nights he woke up once in the night and cried out for about a minute then went back to sleep. The funny thing is that Kade doesn't realize he can get down when he wakes up-or even when he goes to bed! He just lays there until he falls asleep or until we come get him when he wakes up. During the day he is obsessed with getting in and out of it or grabbing all the blankets off of it and dragging them out to the front room and having me spread them on him five million times so that he can go "nigh-nigh" on the ground. Odd boy! I think he is pretty funny though, but spreading the blankets on him does get old!
