block fingers

We got some blocks made into beads from Payette, ad J figured out they fit on his fingers. Since we didn't have game night tonight, we played with the beads for a while.

Driving home

Can't you just see the excitement on his face for being back in the car for another drive home?

Homework on vacation

Drew had to do some homework while we were on vacation. It was the only picture that got taken today.

Mini pumpkin pies

We made some small pumpkin pies specifically for J. He ended up not liking the pie, but I thought they were cute.

Driving to Payette

We spent most of the day driving. It was thoroughly un-exciting. J enjoyed not wearing shoes and socks in the car.

More homework

I've apparently gotten really horrible about remembering to take pictures. Sorry for all the homework pictures.

Random J

I have no idea why I took this picture, but it's apparently the only one taken today.

Thankful tree

we made a thankful tree for family night tonight. We all enjoyed naming things we were thankful for before putting them up on the tree.

block structure

No game night tonight, so we played with blocks instead. Drew make this cool structure out of the blocks. It got knocked down right after the picture was taken :)

J apparently got hold of the camera at some point, and took a pretty good picture of himself.

Clean chair!

our chair is finally clean and put back together! I'm so excited and very happy with how much better it looks!

Line of cereal

I gave J a bowl of mixed cereal for breakfast, and he picked out all of one kind and laid it out carefully in a line.

I found a book of "Holiday" recipes. I took a picture of a few nummy sounding ones, to hope to try and make them at some time.

New Chair

Our current rocking chair has been broken for a while, and we've been keeping an eye out at the DI for a new one. We found this one which seems besides being a little dirty, in perfectly good condition. Even better it was only $15! and came with a foot stool! I'm excited to clean it up and be able to start using it.

Sleeping J

J ended up in a super cute sleeping position tonight. This picture doesn't show it well (it's hard taking pictures in the near dark), but he's cuddling with a dragon, and has the blanket mostly over his head.

Game night

I don't remember the name of the game, but it's super fun. You're a bandit, robbing a train. Trying to escape capture and of course end up with the most loot.

At a baby shower

I went to a friend's baby shower. She's having a girl. They had this adorable fruit bowl there. I loved the idea, so I wanted to take a picture.

first snow

First sticking snow of the year. J was walking up to campus with me so that I could practice. He enjoyed walking through the snow. Even touching it once.

I've been wanting to make some file folder games for J, so today I priced out some different kinds of Velcro. I had to take them fast since J kept wandering off, so this probably isn't the best quality.

for sale

We got this picture frame when we first got married. However, we haven't found a good use for it (especially since we never really got wedding pictures). We decided to try selling it, so I took a picture of it today to try and sell it.

Long Strips

So I've been wanting for a while to make a rug out of a bunch of our pants that have suddenly gone kaput. We also recently got a hole in one of our sheets, so I decided to go ahead and cut it into strips too. I put a few of the strips together to make a really long one.

Music on a stand

We went up to the Snow building on campus tonight to practice a song I'll be doing in sacrament meeting later this month. J kept taking my music off the piano and putting it on this stand. A few times later, I helped him to plunk out Twinkle Twinkle, and he seemed a lot happier after that :)

Basket full of toys

J was dragging around a basket full of toys for quite a while today while the wash was washing and drying. It was cute to watch.

Fire search and rescue

Super fun co-op game. I'd recommend this one for pretty much anyone. It can take a while, but it's worth it.
