Family time & jumpers

Hi there,
What's going on this week?
Last Friday we got to see Anthony & about 5 other pjs jump. We were told we could sit in the jeep. Ethan had fun seeing the helicopters while we waited. He handled the interrupted nap well, for a while anyway. Sadly we had to do the same thing on Saturday in order to work our date in to many other events. A worthy cause, but after a couple days of us waking him up (both morning & afternoon) he had a very hard time to put it mildly. Needless to say when it's within our control, nothing messes up his schedule. period.
Daddy made Ethan extra handsome for my talk on Sunday. They matched-minus the vest- Ethan was more than happy to take off his cute clothes, once we were home, and change. (: Last night he enjoyed playing in a small fort. He really wanted mommy & daddy to sit in it with him..since we're not miniature people like he is, we stuck our heads through the door.
Things stay busy here, lots to juggle, lots of running around. We're looking forward to our family time this next week. Enjoy a wonderful, happy Thanksgiving.

Parachutes & Halloween

Hi there, How are you? I had forgotten that I took these pics last week. Things have been a bit crazy--though that's typical. Anthony's chief retired from the AF so we went to see a large group jump (60 total if I remember) on Thursday. Ethan had fun watching the plane & then trying to spot the jumpers. It was nice to see Anthony during the day & be invited to the event.

After a ton of browsing & comparing we decided to have a cute, ferocious lion for Halloween. (: Ethan had fun (after a meltdown w/ the eyeliner) at the trunk or treat with our combined wards. The turnout was great & costumes were fun to see. Ethan got to see friends about 5 or 6 times this week (plus lots of v.t. appts with mommy) so we're thrilled he's happy in nursery again. He put up a good fight for a couple months.
During the lion face drama, I suggested we draw a nose on ourselves. I had Anthony stamp his nose on Ethan's & then we had to pin him (nice, I know) to draw the whiskers. He was happy in the end, though the nose lasted maybe 3 minutes. Glad we took these right away..It was a fun night with ward friends.

We love you,
Anthony, Chelsea & Ethan
