Nathan created a Monster!

At school they are having a cake decorating contest. Tonight is their Trunk-or-Treat, with game booths, including a cake walk, so the cakes from the contest will be used for the cake walk.

Nathan created this super cute monster cake for the contest. I, of course, baked it, stacked it and put white frosting on it. He did the rest. He was very proud, and with good reason, it came out super cute!

An update for you!

We were invited to go to Ian's Fall Festival last weekend. It was really hot, but a lot of fun!
This is a picture we had taken while there. Aren't they so cute!

Wednesday we went tot the pumpkin patch with a few school friends. They played, ate snacks, did the maze and had a really good time. They're all good kids and got along nicely.

Teresa had opening night for Les Mis last night. It's really difficult to get a picture of her in her costumes because they have a few and they're changing in and out. So here is the pro picture we got of Teresa and Hannah in their gowns for the wedding. The show has a few tech issues, but otherwise a nicely done performance, I can't wait to see it again tomorrow. I'll add another post, if I manage to get some of the show.

Yes, Teresa was in love with her blue dress with the hoop

Today at Nathan's school was ABC day. We went on an ABC scavenger hunt. It was a lot of fun. They hid the letters around the kindergarten area and classrooms. The kids had to find the letter and do the activity that went with it. B for Bubbles, blow bubbles. F for flag, salute the flag, L for Lick a lollipop in the library...they were very creative with their activities and the kids had a really great time.

Will and Nathan Cuddle with Clifford for C

They salute the Flag for F

Bubbles for B

Each child had their own clipboard and check list, it was a big deal

 And that pretty much brings you up to date with what's been going on here. Nathan has his last soccer game next weekend - he plays Ian's team again, should be fun! And then of course all the Halloween Hoopla to come...

Nathan things that make me smile

I posted this on facebook a few days ago, but I thought I should share here too. First, when Nathan sets the table the napkins have to be folded in a triangle. The other night he had 3 triangles and one diamond napkin. He told me the diamond was sad  - of course, I ask why. He says, because it wishes it was a triangle (ah, of course)

About 2 weeks ago Nathan wanted to learn to tie his shoes, so we sat down and he learned to tie them. Just like that, it was awesome. So today after school he tells me he tied two girls shoes and another boy on the playground who he didn't know, but had a shoe untied. I can only imagine what that kid was thinking. I remember Teresa would do the same for her classmates in Kindergarten. So cute!

One more thing, and I hope this video loads. It's Nathan doing the Pledge of allegiance.
