Second Birthday Party

Grinning with his godfather Dan!

Thomas spent most of his time with Dan telling him what to do!

Several of us know how uncomfortable that bike is...Dan is a trooper!

Coloring and having a snack outside with Grandpa.

He sweet talked Grandpa into jumping on the trampoline with him!
Riley, Thomas and Parker.
Do you know how hard it is to get three kids to look at the camera at the same time?!!!

Parker showing Thomas the train card she made for him.

Riley, Thomas and Mia at the train "craft" station at the party.

Possibly my favorite "decoration" at the party! The CANDY BAR!

Train cupcakes.

The actual birthday cake.

Checking out the cupcakes.

He got caught! haha...

Can you guess which part of the cake he wanted? A lovely black wheel! This year he had no problem diving into the cake without a spoon!

Pete modeling some of Thomas' presents!

The actual opening of presents.

Playing with his new firetruck with Grandmama!

Pumpkin Patch

We went to the Pumpkin Patch on Wed. with the Mommy Group. He had a lot of fun and was able to pick out a pumpkin. Here he is playing a pumpkin roll game.

Helping to pick up the pumpkins after they had been rolled.

On the hay (technically straw) ride wagon. He screamed bloody murder when we got on it the first time. They drove us over to a corn maze, which he loved, I on the other hand was a bit freaked out. You really could get lost in those things! The second ride on the wagon he did better, although he stayed on my lap the whole time.

Picking out a pumpkin to take home.

I guess this one was a little heavy!

He worked so hard picking one out his hat got turned.

Not sure what he is about to get into but it can't be good.

Trying to decide if he thinks he can pick up the big pumpkins.

Feeding the goats.

Birthday Boy

Yesterday morning! He wasn't officially 2 then but he is now!

The bear he is holding was given to him by the doctor that delivered him. He just happened to find it in his closet yesterday morning and had to have it.

Thomas' first Notre Dame game

We took Thomas to his first Notre Dame game last month, Notre Dame vs. Michigan. Unfortunately his record isn't as good as mine...he is 0-1! It was chilly and rainy, hence the froggy raincoat. He was a trooper the entire time and did great. We were even complimented on our little girls wonderful behavior during the game. Seriously how many times do I have to say "Thomas" for you to realize he is a boy?! I know, I's the hair! blah blah... I'm still not cutting it.

I left our camera in the car due to the rain but Aunt Melanie was smart and brought her waterproof case. The picture may be a little blurry but at least we have a picture of all three of us before his first game.

His Aunt Melanie got him a Saint Mary's hat. That face is priceless!

godfather Dan and godmother Melanie were both at Thomas' first ND game.
Very special!

Halloween Crafts

As it is almost Halloween we have been working on some Halloween themed crafts.
Here he is gluing pom poms onto some scary shaped cards.
I can not get his nose to stop running! It's bordering on gross...ALL THE TIME!

After we glued pom poms on some cards he stuck some Halloween themed stickers on others.

So....if you get one in the mail please remember that Thomas did these! My artistic talents really are not much better, only a tiny bit but still!

Aunt Megan and Aunt Melanie sent a bunch of "school" stuff to play with (and the Halloween stickers). We have been having lots of fun playing with their pile of stuff. He colored this witch and then attached the nose.

An artistic jack-o-lantern...he obviously favored one eye more than the other!

Rice, Pompoms, Golf Lessons and Birthdays

Enjoying the warm fire.

We thought he would be scared but he wasn't. He also listened very well and stayed back from the fire.

Sensory activity...playing with rice.

Mommies sensory activity: cleaning up all that rice!

Some of his "school work" from the last few weeks.

yep....pom poms!

Golf lesson from Lilly.

This is how we plan to get him to San Francisco!

Jumping with Pete.

Reading a book to Pete.

Our visit from our friend Sarah.

He didn't pass gas on her this year!
