Fall Weekends

This weekend was great. We accomplished things: yard work, organization, cleaning, and cooking. We visited with friends and family. We played in the yard, in the park, and on the street. Unfortunately, I didn't take any photos of our events.

So, since I haven't posted photos in a while, I thought I might take a quick trip back to last weekend at the Rosthern's Youth Farm Corn Maze.

 Calder is growing up so fast. I couldn't believe when he picked up this creature (is it a Guinea pig?) and plopped it down on his lap. He was so gentle with it.

 It doesn't seem that long ago that Calder would step into a bouncy castle and be completely out of control. He still is completely out of control - the difference is he now purposefully crashes to his bum and slams into walls.
 This is Calder's first attempt at photography. I can't even remember what I was squatting beside. A lama maybe?


 Just a small little preview of October 31. Calder is VERY scary.


We made it safely out. Didn't even have to take an emergency exit! I honestly don't know how we would have done it without the clues, though!


 Not our best shot, but I could care less. Calder wanted to go on the "train" ride (the engine is a Gator). And he immediately said, "I want mom to go with me." I almost fell over. Hugh was pretty pumped too. He loves it when Calder picks me first as it happens so rarely. Hugh was even a bit extra pumped because those tiny cars might have left him permanently crippled! It was a tight squeeze.
Enjoy what's left of the warmth and sunshine! Happy Monday.

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Nicknames

All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…
