Lunch at the Train Station

We can't make a trip to Wal-Mart without passing the train section. My oldest is a Thomas the Train fanatic. He knows all of their names (even when I don't). Every week at the library we have to get new Thomas books and movies. Every night at bed we have to read ALL those Thomas books. It's more Thomas fun than I can handle.

Is that bread in front of each train you ask, why yes it is. Big man was supposed to be eating his own lunch and while I wasn't looking, he very graciously shared with each and every one of his trains. It was too cute to pass up the photo op. Isn't he adorable?

Starting Halloween Early

The boys and I started Halloween a little early this year. The Garden Lodge by where we live had a Halloween parade and crafts for the kids. Big man was thrilled to be Woody again this year (had to get my money's worth out of the costume). Little man wasn't quite sure why he was in a padded penguin suit. At least he stayed warm.

They were the cutest ones there :) No offense to any other kids. I'm just a little biased.

The highlight of the whole morning-a train ride.

He would've stayed on it for hours.

Our other Woody friend wanted to join in the fun.

I'm getting old

So this week is kind of a crazy one for me-I turn 30. Whenver I heard that people were 30, I used to think that they were SO old. Now that I'm here, I don't feel that old. When I think back to what I was doing 5 years ago, I was engaged (almost married) and going to school for my master's degree. Ten years ago, I was just finishing my bachelor's degree, single and didn't have a clue what to do with my life. It all seems like yesterday. In another blink of an eye I will be looking back on 30 and remembering all the good times I had.

I wouldn't trade where I'm at for anything. I have a loving husband, two beautiful (and sometimes crazy) children, a beautiful home, a great stay-at-home job, and wonderful family and friends. I truly am blessed.

So, 30 here I come. It's going to be a great year.

Potty Training Woes

Did anyone see David Letterman last night? He was talking about potty training his son and I totally related. My almost 3 year old is definitely doing the potty train his own way. He's got the peeing down (for the most part), but refuses to poop on the potty. Any suggestions from you pros out there?
