Happy Halloween!

Grant went as an iguana!  Silly me, thought it was a dinosaur costume until we got it home and actually read the label.  Oops!  Still... cutest iguana ever.

Let's go to that house, Daddy!

Knock Knock!  Is anyone home?

Maybe not...

Maybe this house will have candy...

Yay!  Someone's home!

Trick or Treat!

Happy Halloween from Grant and his doting parents!

The Most Exciting Thing About Napa Is....

Apparently, it's all the cool equipment Grant saw on the wine tours.  He yells "IN!" anytime he sees something he wants to see up close and personal, including all cars, trucks, buses, bikes, tractors, golf carts, etc.  If it has wheels, he wants in it.

On The Plane!

Grant wasn't as easily contained this trip vs the trip to Hawaii.  He was antsy and wanted out of his seat.  Even the videos in the headrests of the Virgin planes weren't enough to keep him occupied.  And who's to argue with a screaming toddler on a plane?  He got his way, of course.

Where have we been?

We were on vacation this week in Napa Valley!  It was so beautiful - the weather was perfect, the wine tastings were fun, and the food was delicious!  I have a lot of pictures to share, because Grant was with us the whole time, but it will take a while to go through them all.  For now, here's a little jive-turkey for you.

Another Pumpkin Patch Visit

Well, we visited another pumpkin patch.  This time, it was aaaalllll the way over in Flower Mound.  There were lots of people and lots of pumpkins.  Grant liked the big pumpkins and he loved the cartoon cutouts of Yo Gabba Gabba.  He also got very excited when we saw tractors and trains!

This one's almost as big as me!

Doing the hay maze with Daddy.

I made it!

Of course, we had to sit on the tractor.

Pumpkin pictures!

Ok, I'm done with this!

Hey!  I know all these guys! 

I'm in a train!

And now I'm in a tractor!

See ya later!

A Visit to the Dentist!

He was timid.  No doubt - that's a nervous smile.

When Grant's name was called, we went to a DVD library and picked out a movie - Cars, of course.  They play it on televisions that hang from the ceiling.  Grant was very interested in the movie, but didn't want to actually lay back on the seat.

The let him hold a giant stuffed seal.  First they brushed the seal's teeth.  Then they brushed Grant's.

And he got a new toothbrush!  With Tigger on it!

Here they are putting special toothpaste on the toothbrush.

Aaaaand, this is the last of the non-crying pics before the process was all done.

He did really well, despite the tears.  They brushed his teeth really well (but we already do that at home), and then "Dr. Z" used the pick to check for cavities - he got the all clear!  And lastly, they did a quick flouride treatment.  After it was all done, plenty of hugs from Mama quickly got him in good spirits again.

Oh, and a new stuffed bear and a couple of Cars stickers didn't hurt either.  ;)

The Monster is Loose!

Dance, dance!

What do you have there?  Green and blue balls?

Can you put the balls on your ears?

Can you put the balls on your toes?

How do you like those monster PJs?  I think PJs are my favorite things ever to put on toddlers.  This kid could be a PJs model!

Harvest Festival at Calloway's Nursery!

Yesterday, we went to Calloway's Nursery for a visit to their pumpkin patch.  They had activities for the kiddos, including pumpkin decorating, sidewalk chalk drawing, and flower planting.  Grant didn't get into the chalk or potted flowers, but he enjoyed the pumpkin decorating.  It was a great time to go - around 4:00 in the afternoon and the crowd was completely gone.  It was great because we had the place almost completely to ourselves!

One cute thing we noticed - Grant kept saying "Boo!" every time he saw a decorative ghost!  We didn't teach him that!

Come on, Grant, let's go pick out a pumpkin!


This one looks good!

I'll set it right here!

Yay, stickers!

All done!  YAAAAY!

Did you see that black bird, Daddy?

Where did it go, Grant?  I don't know!

Pictures with Mama and Daddy!

Grant is ready for Halloween!
