Happy Halloween!

Have I mentioned that Carden loves Thomas the Train? Because he does.  He love it so very very much. So naturally he wanted to be Thomas for Halloween.  I looked on the internet and all I saw was those ugly apron costumes, so decided that we had to come up with something better than that!

Cue the crazy idea of making a Thomas costume.  My friend offered to loan us her wagon that has two parts just like a train.  Then I sent out an email to our ward asking if anyone had boxes to donate.  I picked up the boxes then immediately drove to look at the wagon.  By some crazy miracle, the boxes were a perfect fit! Seriously, it was crazy.

Carden was my big helper to help me paint it, David was my big helper to dump the ENTIRE quart of blue paint all over the curbing, rocks, and grass outside.  I spent the entire morning cleaning up that mess! But a month later, I think it turned out pretty awesome!

This picture I took before Halloween and submitted it to a coupon site that I look at and won a $10 gift card for it.  Go me!

I was going to put David in a dinosaur costume to do a Dinosaur Train/Thomas combo, but couldn't get David into it.  Well, the lion was much more successful :)  Just look at him roar!

Carden was sooo cute as a little conductor/engineer:

Carden made sure to blow his train whistle for everyone we went saw.  The lion costume didn't last long either.

Thank you to Grandma and Grandpa K for coming with us! I wouldn't have made it without you! Poor Daddy had school tonight :(

I'm pretty sure he's going to ask to go trick or treating again tomorrow night.  Too bad it only comes once a year :)

He broke my heart today...

Me: Yay! You found your yellow bullbozer!
Carden:  No mom it's not bullBozer, it's a bullDozer! (like, duh, mom)

Um, how did he get to be so big!?

I planted a garden last week...

Hoping that i might have something to blog about other than kids.  I went out there today and it looks like the entire thing is moving there are so many ants.  And nothing is growing :( Boo, it's back to talking about the kids I guess.

I'm so happy I'm three!

We had a birthday over here and it was awesome! Carden talked about his birthday for weeks before the actual day and was so excited when the big event finally came.  I attempted to make a bulldozer cake for him and again he was so excited he just couldn't control himself.  I was pretty impressed with it myself-as long as you don't look too closely at the frosting. I've never understood how people can make the frosting smooth...

A little bit about the three year old:
Height: 38.5in.-between 75-90%
Weight:32 lbs-50%

Favorite food: pizza
Favorite color: purple
Favorite toys: Thomas the train and friends.  All day long it's Thomas.  Seriously, All. Day. Long. We run a LOT of errands during the day so Mama can take a break.
Favorite question: WHY???
Favorite thing to do that's not toy related: Be a helper! He loves to help with everything.  The other night he spent an hour with me cleaning all of the bathrooms and I was seriously fighting with him over who got to clean the toilet.  I swear this can't be normal :) He loves to help Daddy with his tools and will get out his own little measuring tape and ask you to be his helper for him.  So cute.

He asks me what time it is about 10 times a day and repeats it back like he totally understands what I just said.

He still naps for a couple of hours a day.  Love it!

He loves Thomas the train.

He's pretty good a jigsaw puzzles.  I've been saying for about 4 months now that we need to get bigger puzzles, since he can put a 24 piece puzzle together in about 2 minutes.

David is his best friend.

He's still really nice to other kids.  I get told his has a sweet spirit all of the time. (Don't get me wrong, he does his fair share of taking toys and whining, but overall- a very sweet kid).

The kid has a sweet tooth like his mama. Poor kid.

Did I mention he love Thomas the train?  Loves it.

A Daddy's boy through and through.

Oh Carden, we love you!
