Happy Halloween!!

Hi Daddy!!

Guess what tonight is???? Its Halloween night! I know its been a while since i posted last time but thats because we have been busy w/ camping and seeing Grammy & Pop-pop. But tonight is Halloween. Mommy is awfully happy today... she says that Halloween is her most favorite holiday. She says that it gives her a reason to get dressed up and act spooky and to eat lots of candy! Mommy let us carve our pumpkins a couple of nights ago that way we would have plenty of time for Trick or Treating and other fun stuff. C-C decided that she was going to be a vampire girl & I was Dracula! I wasn't too sure about the cape though. It was a little tight and too close around my neck. It made me feel uncomfortable. But mommy made me wear it to a couple of houses. She even painted my face a little. I got upset and cried and ended up wiping most of it off. Mommy gave up at that point. Mommy also got ready. She put on some makeup and pretty eyelashes and a really cool witches hat. She looked really pretty. So we got my pumpkin bucket and we headed out. C-C was gonna go trick or treating w/ her best friend so it was just me and mommy. We went to the first house and i got my candy but after that, i handed my bucket to mommy and let her hold it... i had my priorities... my lolipop!! We only went to a few houses then mommy had to get back to the house to hand out candy to the trick or treaters. Mommy let me help hand out candy to the trick or treaters that came to the door. I had more fun doing that daddy than walking around to all the houses. There were some scary masks that came by but i wasn't afraid and made sure that everyone got a piece of our yummy candy. We gave out laffy taffy, gum, sugar daddy, lolipops & m&m's. We also had these cool spider rings that we handed out too. There was this really big group of trick or treaters that came by and mommy ran out of candy. So we had to turn the decorations off and shut the door. After that mommy and me went through my pumpkin to see what all i got. The only thing i liked out of it was the lolipops. I also got some dots and candy stick things and some gummy candy. So i gave those to C-C. When C-C and Marissa came back home, C-C had a whole bunch of candy that she got from trick or treating. She even shared a few pieces of candy w/ me.

Mommy says that its time for me to go nite-nite, so i have to go. I am sorry that you couldn't be here for Halloween. Mommy sure did miss you daddy. I missed you too. I sure hope next year you are home and can take me trick or treating... it will be fun!! Have sweet dreams, sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite. Love you!!

Pumpkin Patch pt 3....

Pumpkin Patch pt 2....

Pumpkin Patch....

Hi Daddy!

I miss you! I know its getting closer for when you come home. My chain is getting smaller and smaller. I love to rip off a link each night before i go to bed. Sometimes i forget and have 2 links to pull off the next day.

Mommy, me and C-C did something fun last weekend. We went to the pumpkin patch. Tina and the girls came w/ us too. It was rainy and little chilly but mommy bundled me up and we brought our umbrella. There was a hayride and bounce houses there too. We first did a petting farm. There was this REALLY big bunny daddy!! You wouldn't believe how big he was! There was also a baby goat that kept following me around. He probably thought i had food for him but i didn't. He was really cute though. There were also chickens and sheep. I even saw a kitty cat! Then we went in the bounce houses. I love bouncing around especially when C-C comes in w/ me. She really bounces me high!!! After the bounce houses mommy said that we could do the hayride. That was fun. It took us all around the field. I saw a choo-choo and horseys. There was some horseys in a barn sticking their heads out of their windows. After the hayride we checked out the pumpkins in the pumpkin patch. There were so many pumpkins... i just couldn't get them all! Then we found some REALLY big pumpkins. They were too big for me to lift so we left them there.

Mommy and me just went to the playground at the mall. She brought her camera w/ her. I had fun sliding down the whales tail and running through its belly. I played really nice w/ the other kids too. Mommy ran into a lady and her little girl that we met at my swim lessons this summer. She chatted w/ her for a bit while i played. Then it was time to go see the puppies!!!! I love puppies daddy! They are so cute! Maybe when you come home, we can get a puppy??? I saw small puppies and just 1 big puppy. Then there were rinkly puppies. They were trying to get me through the glass. Some of the puppies were sleeping and some were playing. Mommy said her tummy was grumbling so we went to go eat lunch. I really wasn't hungry and just wanted to get down and play. Mommy got a little frustrated and wrapped up my cheese burger and we came home. Now its time for me to take a nap. I really don't want to but mommy says i have to. We have a busy weekend coming up. Mommy, me and C-C are going camping w/ Tina and the girls. I am excited but mommy is nervous because its going to be chilly and rainy this weekend. I think we will have fun no matter what the weather is like.

Well... here comes mommy... its time for me to take my nap. I miss you and love you daddy! Bye-bye!

Fall Fun Days....

Hey Daddy!!

I have to tell you about the cool thing that mommy, c-c & me did yesterday! We made Chocolate lolipops and decorated the house for Halloween. Mommy bought this special chocolate at the store w/ special colors for it. Mommy had to melt it in the microwave and stir in the colors that c-c and i wanted. C-C wanted red, orange & yellow. I wanted green. So after mommy mixed all the colors, she put them in little baggies. She also had cool sprinkles that we could add in. Mommy gave me my baggie and tried to squeeze the chocolate out but it was a little difficult for me so mommy helped. Then we added the sprinkles i wanted. Mommy gave me a lolipop stick to put in and then she had to put them in the fridge to cool down. C-C made special pumpkin looking lolipops. We had alot of fun. You know what the best part was daddy?? Eating the left over sprinkles. The black ones turned my mouth, lips and fingers black. That made mommy laugh. Mommy said it was time for me to take a nap. I wasn't too happy about that but she promised that if i took a really good nap that we would decorate the house. So after i woke up it was time to decorate for Halloween. Daddy? Did you know that mommy is a big scaredy-cat?? She is a big scaredy-cat of spiders!! She is so afraid that she made C-C go in the shed and drag the decorations out front. C-C was really brave and dragged it all the way out front. I didn't see what the big deal was. Oh well. Mommy got out some skeleton head lights and i helped her put them down the driveway. Then we got out our Frankenstein. C-C put up the bloody hands in the front window and put ghost stickers on the front door. Mommy also took some pumpkin buckets and put them over the porch lights. It looks really cool. Then mommy got some spider web stuff and hung it all over the brick outside. Then she hung this REALLY big black spider right by the door in the web. It looks really spooky. The only thing mommy didn't put up this year was the blowup pumpkins. She said that the stakes for it are out in the shed and she wasn't going back out there. So maybe next year.

Then today mommy took me and C-C to get our halloween costumes. Mommy found a little dracula costume for me and C-C decided she was going to be a vampire too. C-C put her costume on and mommy took a pic but i didn't want to put mine on. I want to show on Halloween what i look like. :)

Well, mommy says its my bed time. So i have to go for now. I wish you were home for halloween so you could go trick or treating w/ me. I know mommy will take lots of pics so you can see though. I miss you and love you daddy!

Chef Troy

Hey Daddy!

I had such a fun day today. Guess what i got to do....... i got to cook w/ mommy! It was so much fun. First we started cooking dinner. Mommy said she was making this thing called Taco Soup. Mommy mixed a few ingredients together and she let me dump the cans of beans in this big pot. Then i got to dump the corn and tomatoes. She even let me stir it all together. She put the lid on the soup and said that it needed to cook for 5 hours. Then mommy said it was time to make dessert. She said that we were going to make Banana Cake. First we started measuring all the ingredients like the flour and sugar. Then we had to crack eggs. Mommy got a small bowl out and let me crack the egg on the counter and then she helped me drop it into the bowl. Then we had to mash up some bananas. She let me break apart the bananas into another bowl and let me use the masher to smash them all up. Mommy helped me of course. :) Then we had to mix it all together. Mommy has this loud thing she called a mixer and she let me hold it. She says that it helps stir things up fast. Once that was done, we dumped it into a pan and baked it. Mommy then fixed me lunch and said that i had to take a nite-nite. I wasn't too happy about that, but she said as soon as i got up that i could help put frosting on the cake. So i was ok w/ that. I slept for a long time today. Mommy was very happy that i took a nap. First thing we did when i got up was put frosting on the cake. First we had to smash up some pecans. Mommy had a baggie filled w/ them and showed me how to use this rolling pin to smash them all up. While i did that, mommy spread the creamy frosting on top of the cake. As soon as i smashed up all the pecans she let me sprinkle them on the frosting. Then it was clean up time. I helped mommy clean up all the dirty dishes that we made. She filled up a bowl w/ water and let me wash the measuring cups. Mommy said that we would eat the cake after we ate our dinner. Mommy fixed me Chi-chi nuggets for dinner because she said the Taco Soup was too spicy for me. I ate all my nuggets daddy!! Then it was dessert time. Mommy put a piece of cake on a plate for me and i tried it. Even though mommy and me had a good time making the cake and spent all that time making it pretty.... i really didn't like it. Mommy wasn't mad though. She knows how fussy i am w/ my food. Daddy, I had such a fun day w/ mommy today. I wonder what we will do tomorrow??

Well... its almost my bath time so i better go. I hope you have sweet dreams, sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite. I miss you daddy! I love you!

Chain Gang...

Hey Daddy!!

I wanted to tell you all about my day today. Mommy came up w/ a really cool idea for a countdown till you come home. Mommy bought special stickers and paper and she cut out little strips and let me and C-C decorate them. Then she glued them all together and put it on the wall so I can reach. She said that each night before I go to bed that I can rip a link off. And everytime I rip a link off means that we are getting closer to when you come home. I had so much fun making it. She wanted to take a picture of me and C-C w/ the chain around us but I didn't feel like it. I also painted a picture today. Mommy bought more paint at the store w/ more colors. That mommy has gotten pretty crafty lately. I think it has something to do w/ it being Fall. She says that she likes this time of year. She also bought this special chocolate and let me and C-C make Chocolate Lollipops. Mommy tried to make the chocolate a different color but used the wrong kind of food coloring and it didn't work out but they still tasted yummy!! She bought more chocolate and different kind of food coloring this time and says that we will try it again.

I have been such a good boy for mommy daddy! I am growing up so fast. I go pee-pee & poops on the potty and I wear big boy underwares at the house. Mommy still puts a pull up on me when we go places because sometimes I get so distracted w/ what we are doing that I forget to tell mommy when I have to go pee-pee. One day I will get it though.

I can't wait till you get home! Mommy says I have to go nite-nite now. So I hope you have sweet dreams, sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite! Love you!

Raisin Fingers

Hey daddy!! I am so glad that I got to talk to you the other day! I know sometimes I don't say much on the phone but I am listening. Sometimes I have so much to tell you that I just don't know where to start.

I was a really good boy going pee-pee on the potty today!! Mommy gave me lots of hugs and kisses for going. I put up some stickers on my potty chart too. I even went poop on the potty! Mommy gets really excited when I do that. I also discovered something really cool tonight after I took my bath. Mommy was getting me all ready for bed and had put my jammies on when I noticed something was different w/ my fingers. I held them up and kept turning them over. I wasn't sure if my fingers were ok or not but mommy assured me that they were just fine. See.... she told me that sometimes if I play too long during bath time that my fingers and toes get rinkly like raisins. I think that is the coolest thing. Mommy thought it was funny every time I said the word rinkly... sometimes I don't know about that mommy... she can be very silly.

Its time for me to go to bed now. So I need to get all my choo-choos and go nite-nite. I have a doctor appointment tomorrow to go to. The doctor has to make sure that my mouth is healing from when I fell and cut it. It feels fine to me but mommy says we have to go. I just hope they dont' have to give me any shots. Well daddy, good night, sleep tight & dont' let the bed bugs bite. I love you and miss you! Nite-nite!

Birthday Party...

Hey Daddy! I know its been a while since I have been on here but mommy and me have been so busy. We watched Tina's girls for her for a week. We drove to PA for Pop-pop, Aunt Linda and Cousin Sam's birthdays. There were alot of birthday cakes at the party. I had a good time. Then we came home for a couple of weeks. We went up to C-C's school to meet her teachers. It was a big school. I was telling mommy about all the cool things I saw like books & colors & numbers. Everyone thinks I am funny and cute when I do that.

Then we drove to Grammy & Pop-pops again for Great Grandmom's birthday. We went up to the camper to have her party. It was fun. I played w/ Austin, Kayla & C-C. There was a hayride that we went on w/ Aunt Subby, Uncle Danny, Kayla, Austin, C-C, Mommy & even Aunt Barb went w/ us. It was so cool. After the hayride we had cake. I shoved a whole piece in my mouth and made everyone laugh. Then the next day was mommy's birthday. I colored her a picture for her present and sang happy birthday to her. She didn't have cake like Great Grandmom did. Instead she had Blueberry Pie. I didn't like it so i didn't eat any. Then it was time to come home. Mommy said that C-C had to start school and we had alot to do to get her ready.

I saw you on the puter too!!!! Mommy was checkn her emails and all of a sudden i heard a voice that was very familiar to me..... YOURS!! I dropped my toys and ran over to mommy and sure enough... there you were on the screen. You were telling mommy something but i didn't understand it. I know it was something nice because mommy had a big smile on her face and she started to cry a little. But i think they were happy tears. But i was so excited to see you daddy!! I miss you! I can't wait for you to come home so we can play choo-choos & go swimming & you can read me books. I have to go now daddy. I love you!!
