Cael's Halloween costume 2012

So this year we decided Cael was old enough to pick what he will be for Halloween.  He, of course, said Lightning McQueen.  I looked online & decided I didn't want to spend that much money on a costume that wasn't even that cute.  I found a lady's website showing she made her own Lightning McQueen out of cardboard.  I decided I was up for the challenge.  It should be completely done today!!  I wanted to make it early so if it was ugly I had time to buy something.  I don't think that will be necessary!  Yay crafty me!  I used diaper boxes we had here, my cricut Cars cartridge for the decorations, spray paint & poster board.  Here it is in the process of being made.  I'll post more pics when I'm done with it.

Cael "helped" paint the lightning bolts.

Playing On The Deck

Courtney had a cross country meet on Tuesday this week so Cael & I had a night for us.  Everyone left daycare a little earlier than usual so we went or a walk.  Then we played outside before dinner.  After dinner he wanted to take his animals outside to play.  I decided we would stay on the deck so we didn't even need shoes.  He was so funny.  The tiger was "stinky pete tiger" and he was mean.  So the mama cow protected her baby cow from stinky pete tiger.  Then he told me, "They will love each other forever!"  I adore this kid!

September Family Date

One of Courtney's birthday presents was a book with 12 envelopes in it, 1 envelope for every month for the next year.  Inside each envelope is a date for us to go on.  Some of the dates are "family dates" and we had our first one today!  Sharon & Wilbur were here for the weekend for the car show out at the racetrack yesterday.  It worked out perfect because Sharon watched Cael while I went to help photograph a wedding.  This morning we got up and drove to Platte City for our family date at the apple orchard.  We had a great time!!

Not too sure about the chickens at first.
He was explaining to the chickens that he didn't have any food!

A little freaked out by the cat.
His first apple of the day!

Cael with his apples!  He wouldn't smile until we had him say "chickens"!

So we had to feed the chickens.

Go Uncle Wilbur!

He met a friend on the swings.

He said, "Come into we house!"

He said "manure"!  (He was apparently sitting on a manure spreader)
He picked out a sugar cookie & then only ate the sprinkles & frosting.
He hit a wall and did not want to have his picture taken with the "apple man".
