Leaves, how fun!

Yesterday the Mears family and Aunt Wendy (aka "Aunt Neeenee" to Evan) went to Arlington National Cemetary for a visit. The weather was pretty nice as the sun was out most of the time. We really enjoyed our visit! The Mears family at the top of the hill near Arlington House with DC in the background...
When walking though the cemetary, Evan found a big pile of leaves on the side of the road and was quite eager to trek through them...
He had a ball!
Whoa! Look at how deep they are!

They're Back!

Now that the leaves have fallen in our backyard, we have a much better view of the wildlife. Yesterday morning I looked outside and to my surprise and delight...they're back! Our friends, the deer, were back relaxing behind our townhome. We showed them to Evan and he was thrilled! He lined some of his stuffed animals on the window ledge so they could get a better look as well...Of course, Daisy was eager to see the deer too! Welcome back deer!Now that the frigid cold weather is upon us, we decided to get Evan some slippers. He loves to take his socks off when he's home, and we didn't want his little toes to freeze! So, we bought these hoping Evan would love them and wear them all the time. Yep! We were right! Evan was running around the house like crazy once they were on. Daisy started chasing either Evan or Elmo...not sure which!Daddy got in on the chasing action and Evan had a blast running around the island! He was a constant ball of laughter!

Playing around

The Mears family was back in Indiana last week for Grandma Mears's funeral. Evan really liked playing with all the "new" toys at his Grandmas houses. Evan found a fun hat - adorable, huh?He helped Grandma put up fall window stickers...Whatcha' think?Despite the circumstances, we had a nice visit home. Just think, we'll be back in a little over a month!

Alphabet Soup

Toddlers are always creative and last weekend was no exception. I'm not remembering why we gave it to him, but Evan got a plastic mixing bowl and a big plastic spoon. Soon after, he had fun emptying all the magnetic pieces to his LeapFrog fridge farm and alphabet games into the bowl. He would stir it and stir it and stir it. Evan had such a ball with it!Want a piece?Oops! The letters and animals went flying!Having fun mixing the alphabet soup...This kept him busy for hours on end. He had such a blast playing with his soup!
