Jaxon Sparkles!

October 31, 2009

Because he was Edward Cullen (click here if you have no idea who that is) for Halloween this year.  Spiked hair, just the right outfit, sparkly skin.   He had it all, even the scowl!





Lesson Learned

Never buy your baby an alphabet singing Elmo.  Listening to it through the baby monitor in the middle of the night is just plain CREEPY.

Pumpkin Smash

October 24, 2009

We went to Jamba Juice this morning for the first time. The seasonal flavor pumkpkin smash was a big hit. I could barely get the straw out of his mouth. 🙂

Jaxon says: This is the best way I have found to be helpful to mama in the kitchen.  She says it has something to do with not being able to get into trouble she can’t see.

Pumpkin Hunting and a Maze

October 21, 2009

J and grandma and I did the usual fall activity, we went to the pumpkin patch.  This one was perfect for J, everything seems to be available in miniature.

There was the kid’s pumpkin patch where J found a pumpkin just his size.

And the corn maze was smaller, very manageable for his shorty legs.  He actually ended up loving the corn maze, we went through it twice, him leading the entire time.

There were larger pumpkins there of course, and J’s favorite activity was to give them a little drumming.

We had a great time.  In fact, it was so successful we are scheduling another visit to a pumpkin patch this weekend!  Maybe I’ll remember my real camera this time…

Do you think it makes his head look fat?

I’m a Bingo Loser

October 17, 2009

Joined my sister and her roommate for Bingo last night.  It was quite the experience.  There are many things I didn’t know about the game.  I feel so informed now.

The board I pictured was there, but there were also electronic bingo card things too.  (Think touch screen.)  Apparently that is so a person has double the bingo cards playing at once.  I call it cheating.

I, along with my player partners, did not get the trill of yelling “BINGO!”  This picture of my cards after someone yelled bingo gives you a good idea of how close I NEVER was.

Oh well, we had a good time.  (And parmesan goldfish too, those things are dangerously addictive!)
