Fred. October & November.

He really loves his horse and bink.
First professional haircut.
All he wanted to wear was a dishtowel on his head.
Sister's makeup.

He is wearing my shorts up over his belly and my tanktop around his waist.

fyi: blue chalk stains when ground up and liquefied.
Eating butter. He threw up ten minutes later.
He loves that green sweater vest.
I don't know if you can tell, but Fred is my favorite. Because two-year-olds are funny. The favorite child title usually lasts until about age three.
p.s. everything photographed was of his own doing (except the haircut) with no encouragement from us (especially the butter).

The Nate & Cyndi Goodrich family came to our house for Thanksgiving. They drove all the way from southern Nevada. We really appreciated it. It would have been a really sad day without them (we probably would have gone out to eat).
While they were here we did some crafts, went to the Discovery Center museum, ice skating, out to eat (during the BYU vs. Utah game--sorry Nate--why didn't you tell me?!), to a movie, played Blokus, and just hung out. Oh, and we had a really yummy Thanksgiving meal. Home cooked. Not by me. I just did a pudding pie. The kids spent a long time raking these leaves so they could slide into them. Click on the picture to enlarge. Fred was so excited to be part of the train. Then he was left behind, "Hey!" Then he was happy again because he was on a slide that ended in a pile of leaves.

Thanks so much for the visit! (And sacrificing football because we don't have cable.)

Fred's Room

One of my new year resolutions was to get settled into our home. I lost sight of my monthly goals but I did, finally, accomplish something. Here is Fred's room:
Chloe painted/drew that picture of her and Fred.
