Wow, there are only 9 days left in October now! AH!
Let's recap mid-October!
One morning while riding in the car, Mason did some SERIOUS reading. :)
We enjoyed a quick (thanks to a stomach ache for me) visit to a new park one afternoon.
Mason has an old Dick Tracey lunch box that was Matt's and it contains a gazillion animals. We looked at all of them!
Dressed like Daddy. :)
Snuggles with Momma
Our playgroup had a fun craft playdate and Mason was all about the paint.
I love him so.
Daddy met us for a fun lunch. We were all happy about that!
One evening when I headed to work, Matt sent me this pictures. Mason was obviously a fan of his dinner.
A busy dinner makes for gooooood snuggles, too!
Then my heart burst! :)
We found this cute shirt on consignment for $1 and Mason looks so grown in it!
But he's still my little fella :) Sticker fun proves that.
Reading his book on the living room floor. So sweet.
More cuteness in his new shirt. :)
Mason loves the keys and one afternoon he figured out how to get them into the trunk key hole.
We strolled around downtown seeing all of the sights one Wednesday while Matt was with the youth group at church.
I was able to work about 6 hours one day last week and Mason stayed with Jenn, Skylar and Emma. He was helping Emma with her daily tasks. :)
We have had some beautiful weather and Mason has loved it so much!
This kid will use anything as a hat!
A comb and a book make for perfect items for a car ride.
We got to go to Kindergym again and we even had our sweet buddy, Anna, there, too!
After Kindergym, we went to Cici's for lunch. A friend sent us a coupon that was BOGO buffets so we were happy campers!
This guy does lounging WELL!
Pointing out the airplane.
We tried to do something fun for dinner one afternoon and let Mason eat in the living room while we had a football party. He leaned back hard and....oops! He fell backwards. He wasn't hurt and we all got a fun laugh out of it.
Sunday morning was BEAUTIFUL! and we had to get a few pictures together.
Like Father, Like Son...hands in pockets. :)
Sunday afternoon brought a local fall fest and we enjoyed the low-key event. It was just right for us. Mason could run about and he even won a cupcake!
Monday morning brought a quick stomach "blah" for Matt and Mason and I were his nurses.
We had fun with playdoh and we also played with stickers and crayons. It was a fun morning.
Hmm...food in hair? What a shock?
We all took a nap Monday afternoon and Mason was ready to go after!
That evening, I pulled a muscle (who knows how) in my back and while I laid on the heating pad, Matt took Mason outside and they had fun in Matt's truck, too. I'm pretty sure every single button had been pushed.
Tuesday morning was GOOD! Mason and I started out the day with some sillies. :)
Ready to go!
Last year for Mason's birthday, we decided to wrap his birthday presents in the newspaper from the day he was born (11/1/13). I decided to continue that for this year. We made a stop by the newspaper office to pick up the paper from 11/1/14. Mason was owning it!
We had a fun afternoon playdate with our buddies, Anna & Emily. Trampolines are fun!
The H family lives out in the country so Mason loved all of the space to run around!
After our playdate, I headed to work and super-dad headed home with Mason for evening tasks. Mason was patiently waiting and reading while Matt made dinner.
YUMMY! Red beans, rice and sausage with cornbread.
The evening fell apart at work with various things but I looked out the window and saw these deer and I couldn't help but smile. :)
Mid-October brought good and challenging time but These are the days, for sure. :)
