Boys Update

Jack got a hold of the camera, and I made the mistake of showing him how to take pictures. Here are a few of his first shots as a photographer.

Also, he got some birthday money, and we just got around to spending the rest of it yesterday. He was able to use some of it to go to "Donald's" (as he calls it,) buy the Heffalump Halloween Movie (since Lumpy the elephant is one of his favorite characters,) and yesterday, we got him a toolkit and a police kit that had a gun in it. The gun was his favorite part! Here he is with his new toolbox.

Lincoln was a little upset that he didn't get anything, but we thought he hid it well.

Here's Jack trying on his new police helmet.

And here he is again, modeling his new set of tools.

The goggles were cool to try on...
But they HAD to come off right away!

Doug said that Jack wanted him to take some pictures of him. Here was his pose.

And, my favorite, Lincoln was laughing hysterically about the noise that this toy makes. I had to share!

Halloween and Jack's Birthday

Halloween was so much fun this year! Since Jack's birthday is November 2nd (TODAY), we just decided to celebrate on Halloween, since the majority of Doug's family wanted to see him in his costume, anyway. Doug made an awesome dinner of ribs, rolls, and baked beans. Doug's family brought the Toy Story birthday cake, salad and homemade root beer, and my cousin Camille brought homemade cider. Mmm, mmm, good! It was all delicious! You can see Jack opening his presents, dressed up in his football Halloween costume, and then playing with one of his particular presents the day after. This was probably his favorite day EVER so far. What could beat good food, all sorts of Toy Story presents, and FREE candy? Happy birthday, Jack. We love you so much!

All three boys are sick at the moment, and I bet that Doug has swine flu. The boys seem like they just have colds, so far. I guess I'm doomed to get sick here pretty soon.

Stay tuned.
