My Little Blue Dinosaur

Nathaniel made the CUTEST little blue dinosaur for Halloween!!! He was so excited about giving out candy to our trick-or-treaters, but quickly got scared by some of their costumes. :-( All-in-all we all had a great time!

Photos for Christmas....ALREADY!!

I am not sure how it happened, but we already have our Christmas pictures for our friends and family this year! We are feeling pretty good about being so far ahead! :-)

I think this picture really shows you how tall his is!

"I'm THIS big, Mommy!" :-)

This is one of my favorites! He LOVES trains and this shows it! It was hard to get him to pose because he just wanted to play with them!

There is something about this photo that captures the beauty of my son in a different way. I don't know...I love it though!

Visiting "Auntie Grandma"

This weekend we took a short trip to Denver, Colorado to meet our dear friend Jaye. Nate calls Jaye "Auntie Grandma" and was so excited to see her! I wish I would have had my camera rolling for his greeting of her at the airport. It was like something you would see in a movie.

A little over 2 years ago, I took this picture of Nathaniel and "Auntie Grandma" Jaye.

Here is Jaye & Nate now! (Please note Nate's new cheesy, forced smile!)

We consider Jaye to be family and love her dearly.

Nate and His Big Boy Underwear!

Today Nate got to wear Big Boy underwear for the first time! He was so excited AND he stayed dry the whole time (we started with just 1/2 day from after nap until bedtime). I am so proud of him...and I am enjoying the idea of a diaper-less life for just a little while! :-)

Yet Another Trip to Rushmore...And One VERY Happy Boy!

Because Nathaniel LOVES Mt Rushmore, we surprised him with a trip to watch the very last evening ceremony for the season!
