Halloween 2016

Seriously, could we be any cuter?

My robot costume had lights that were so bright Dad said I could work as a flashlight if we needed an extra light. But I don't think I'll fit in the closet with the other ones. 

Emma was a cute ladybug who was a little afraid of all the spooky stuff out there tonight. But don't worry, when she found out there was candy, she was still all about the holiday.

Introducing our new videographer

Jonathan turned the tables today with his tablet and took some videos for the blog:

She was supposed to recite a whole poem here, but she went off script.

Dad's chin really is his best side. 

Everybody likes a light-up balloon dance!

Pumpkin picking time again

Last weekend we headed back to the pumpkin patch to show Emma how to pick out the perfect decorations for Halloween. She got to ride in the wagon, since she weighs about the same as a pumpkin anyways. 

First step is to go out in the field and find which ones look best. 

Second step is to find Emma in the corn maze and bring her back out. 

Next step is to survey all the pumpkins for the perfect ones. 

And the last step is convincing Mom and Dad to buy all the ones you think would look great at the house. They negotiated us down to three. 

I had so much fun my head turned into a pumpkin. OK, not really. But I thought this picture was hilarious.

Jumping practice

Look, if I don't start working these muscles now, I'm never going to be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Pretty please?

But, Dad, if we got a pet Triceratops, I promise I'd feed him every day and walk him whenever he needs it. How can you say no to a cute Paw Patrol dress?

Scooter lessons

The only way we're ever gonna have scooter races is if she learns how to ride the scooter, so...

Dino hunting

We caught one!

OK, fine. Emma and I just got to see a lot of dinosaurs with Grandmom and Pop Shane during a Philly museum trip. But, as you can clearly seem this Triceratops would definitely just barely fit inside our living room, so let's see Mom and Dad try to use that excuse again for why we can't have one as a pet. 

They had big butterflies there too, but Mom has a problem with bugs, so I didn't both to ask about keeping that one.

The other pajamas

OK, fine, the other shirt says, "I like to swim." But sometimes I like to make sure Dad is paying attention.

Last flowers of the season

Soon the seasons will change completely and even these beautiful blooms will go away for a few months. But, in the meantime, someone should really get out here and weed. Seriously, folks, let's get a move on.

Meeting of the minds

I dunno ... he moves a lot more than my kitty cat stuffed animal. Are you sure we can trust him?

Longest child ever

But those are some cool new Paw Patrol pajamas.

Soccer games

Soccer got rained out this weekend, but Dad has video from the previous week to show some of the excitement and exhaustion of our full-court press each week:

Not to be outdone, Emma has been working on her skills on the sideline while we play:
