Happy Halloween

I'm not sure if this costume fully capture's Thomas' rambunctious spirit. On the other hand, my knees are buffers!

UPDATE: Another costume photo! And a trick-or-treating video!

Scaling new heights

10-foot-tall slide? Don't you have anything higher?

Engineering 101

Don't worry, I finally figured out the best way to stack them.

Chutes and Ladders

This game makes no sense at all. I walk up the slide at school all the time. And the ones in this game don't even look that steep.

Latest acrobatics

For the record, Dad had to help me grab onto the bar, but I did dead hang there for 90 minutes. Or 90 seconds. Which one is longer again?

School portrait time again

Mom thinks I look about seven years old in this picture. I think I coulda smiled a little bigger if I tried harder. Maybe next time.

Pumpkin picking

Mom and Dad took me to a local farm for pumpkin picking yesterday. Good thing too, because our household pumpkins supply was running pretty low.

The farm has a little pumpkin house that looked pretty cute. But it didn't have a TV and the pumpkin bed smelled kinda funny. Nice place to visit, but I wouldn't stay over here.

The corn maze was a little muddy, but I had a good time running through anyways. Dad said we were supposed to stay on the path, but it was a lot easier to get done by wandering through the stalks.

So many sunflowers...

And I found the perfect pumpkin to take home. Sure, it's the same size as me, but I'm thinking I can carve it into a little house for the backyard. Maybe we'll put a cleaner bed in there.

Medical emergency

Mom had a problem with a cut on her hand, but it's nothing that one of my Thomas band-aids can't handle.

Reading a book to Tommy

Since Aunt Beth was busy taking care of new baby Shane this weekend, I took a turn babysitting Tommy for a little bit. I think he appreciated how much I helped.

Hello, Shane!

I got a chance to visit Aunt Beth and my new cousin Shane this weekend! He seemed pretty cool, but he slept a lot, and Tommy and I had a lot of toys to play with. But I'm sure he'll be as much fun as Tommy soon. 

We didn't really have time to pose with him for a picture, because Tommy and I had a lot of books to read, but here's a nice shot that Dad got of the little guy.

Nighttime picnic

We've got our blanket, juice and pretend cookies. And no ants!
