So much catching up to do!

I have so much blogging to catch up on but NO pictures to show for it. You see, our digital camera broke earlier this week and we hadn't downloaded the pictures yet. I took the media card to good ole Walgreens to make a CD however because there were video files on it, they couldn't make a CD. :( The manager told me she would try to play around with it, but couldn't make any promises. However have no fear, the new digital camera arrived today (my early birthday present). Pictures will be forthcoming, but until then...bear with me as I recount the last couple weeks.

In September, we went with our friends, Tim and Lisa and their 2 kiddos to the balloon race at Forest Park. We learned from last year to get there early and we did. It was great. Thomas and Ernie (who are 8 months apart) had fun creating noodle art and nibbling on the samples. They also got to ride a pony and let me tell you what little cowpokes they looked like! We sat on the hillside and had a picnic lunch while watching the balloons inflate for the photo contest. (Note to self: Remember to put sunscreen on BEFORE going next year! Luckily Children's Hospital was there and had some that they were giving away so Thomas got covered for the most part and Clare remained shielded by the carseat and stroller, Mommy and daddy on the other hand were a different story. We were both quite red for church on Sunday.) Thomas was asleep before we were even to the car so he missed the Hare takeoff. It just goes to show how much fun he had!

Thomas has also decided that he is too BIG for his highchair and so we made the leap to a booster seat. He loves it and I'm sure the dogs do as well since he is now closer to them and can feed them what he doesn't want!

Thomas loves to color as well and we just discovered he loves to finger paint! Whoever created the Crayola magic wonders line is a pure genius! It has been a godsend both at home and at church!

The most exciting thing has also happened in the last week-Thomas has used the POTTY!! Yes you read that right...our 21 month old is starting (?) to get potty trained. I'm definitely NOT rushing him although can I just tell you how nice it would be to only have to buy 1 pack of diapers instead of 2???? He so proud of himself when we goes and even does a little dance when he hears the music of the potty chair after doing the deed.

And that my family and friends is Thomas' last couple weeks in a nutshell. Make sure you check out Clare's site for her updates.
