Well, let's just say that there was no shortage of rain in Early November in our neck of the woods. Because of that, there is no shortage of pictures either! When we are inside playing, we take pictures. :)
Let's see what we have been up to!
Mason always watches a show from 8:00-8:30 each morning during the week. This is when I finish my getting dressed and just after Matt goes to work so it's good timing. This cold morning, he was in his new camo pjs and snuggled right up!
"Rock, rock, rock"
Mason got a doctor's kit for his birthday and he has been using his tools frequently. This picture was just for fun and then I made the face mid-picture because he pinched the heck out of my nose (on accident.)
Mason also had his 2 year well-check which is his favorite because he gets to play with every book in the exam room.
A flu shot calls for more snuggling later that day. I mean, duh!
We had one day that wasn't excessively rainy but still wet. Anyway, we headed out to get some fresh air. Mason was ready in his rain boots!
We love the book store!
We also headed out on a lunch date. We used to rarely go out for lunch or dinner for that matter. Now that I'm working more consistently each week (still only 6-10 hours a week), we have a little fun money and we have been using some for lunch and dinner dates. :)
That afternoon, Mason didn't fall asleep until nearly 1 1/2 hours after I laid him down which is super unusual. When I went to get him up, I found this. Silly...
That night I worked and Matt and Mason had their usual fun time!
Wednesday morning we had MOPS and then that afternoon, Mason and I decided to paint. He was very interested in painting the letters until he remembered painting a hand print earlier in the day at MOPS. After that he painted and completed approximately 10 handprint artwork pages! HAHA!
Here he is spinning in the picture. I know you can't tell but I want to remember it anyway. Sweet boy loves to dance and spin!
Thursday morning we went to Target to scour the Halloween clearance and then we met some friends at Pump-It-Up. These kiddos are BUDS!
That afternoon, we were both worn out so we snuggled up tight tight!
And we also read some books!
This was also the day that I gave Mason a fun sized bag of M&Ms from his stash of Halloween candy (along with a rarity: diluted juice!!!) and looked over to find him sorting them by color!
That led to this! Yay for sorting!
Friday morning started with a little sticker fun! And some crazy hair, too!
We almost skipped Kindergym because it was so gross outside but we decided to go and I'm so glad we did!
That afternoon, I showered before work and I was showing Mason my wet hair and he licked it. Who even knows?!?! Crazy kiddo!
Saturday morning was a little more work for me. Matt and Mason had a yummy breakfast. This picture is proof of how well Mason is doing with his new cups!
Then, it was Kid's Workshop time at HD!
And a little Academy browsing!
We had planned lunch at Texas Roadhouse thinking they opened at 11 but it was 11:30 so we headed to the book store to spend some time while we waited.
Then, we finally made it to lunch! Mason got a giant high chair which cracked us up the whole time!
That evening, Mason had lunch in the living room while we watched football, our Saturday afternoon/evening tradition!
Then we had a family dance party before bed!
We had a date night in and watched a few of our shows before LSU played. We munched on these awesome BBQ nachos!
Sunday sillies with this kiddo!
Our sweet friends, The S Family, sent Mason a birthday gift in the mail and it was delivered Sunday.
**It's a fun lounge chair and apparently everyone is a fan of it!!**
We also headed out to do our Operation Christmas Child Shopping that afternoon. Always fun and fulfilling.
More lounging int he new chair because you've gotta break it in!
We are so goofy!
Monday morning, Matt had a physical and Mason and I fed all of his buddies breakfast!
That afternoon, he was clearly a fan of lunch!
Fun times in the chair's box!
After nap, we got out of our PJs for the first time that day and headed to see some friends at their new house.
Tuesday we woke up to sunshine and we were sure glad about it!
After a playdate, this boy was worn out!
Our neighbor gave Mason this beautiful Santa and it is definitely his buddy right now!
We ended the early part of November with my guys relaxing and reading some books before bed!
Bring it on, Mid-November!
