The Music Man

Dylan is getting so big & his vocabulary is growing by leaps and bounds. His preferred method of communication is singing... he sings all day long-- and dances too! We are constantly laughing at the things that come out of his mouth. Here are his renditions of two popular songs you might recognize...

"All the Single Ladies"

Halloween Fun!

Halloween was a week long celebration this year for us! It started the Sunday prior to Halloween with pumpkin carving. This is the first year that Savannah would actually put her hand inside her pumpkin to clean out the "guts"!


Dylan on the other hand had no problem sticking his hands right in & pulling out the goo. He also enjoyed throwing the pumpkin guts all over the back yard-- thankfully it was warm enough to carve pumpkins outside this year!



On Thursday Savannah had her Halloween party at preschool & got to dress up in her costume...

She was a pretty darn cute Dorothy if you ask me!


This is Savannah's preschool class


During their parade throughout the school, they also get to go trick-or-treating in the parish offices


On Friday night we had a Halloween party to go to. Dylan was anti-costume at this point, so we just put him in his Superman pajamas. Savannah was so upset that they no longer matched (he was supposed to be the cowardly lion) so she went and put on her Wonder Woman costume in her dress up box...



On the day of Halloween we had some friends over for pizza & then everyone went trick-or-treating together. Here are some pictures from the night...



Dylan ended up HAPPILY dressing up as James. His friend Matteo was Thomas at the Halloween party the night before & I had bought this costume as a back up just in case he wouldn't wear his lion costume (which he wouldn't). He would not wear this costume until he saw Matteo, at which point he demanded his James costume!



Another picture of our cute little Dorothy!



The only picture of my two kiddos together I managed to get all night!



Savannah & her buddy Holden



Dylan got the hang of trick-or-treating VERY quickly!



Dylan was on the lookout for zombies all night-- not kidding! He kept telling us "Zombies are coming" and he thought this ghost was a zombie
