New Glasses

We finally got Ethan's new glasses in last week! He's had glasses since he was 9 months old, and this is only his third pair. Pretty good track record for a kid, I would say! Here is a picture of his new glasses, they took a while for me to get used to but now I think they are pretty cute. They are wider and sit farther away from his face, but I think they make him look a little older. Everyone who sees him thinks he's at least 3, sometimes 4. At first he didn't like them-- the prescription in them is a little stronger than his last ones-- but I think he's used to them now. What do you think??

Not the best picture, but the most recent I could find with them on...


(sorry I couldn't flip this one)

And here are some of Chase and Ethan playing in Ethan's tent today.

They crack me up when they get together, gotta love boys!

Simple Pleasure

I love how entertaining a simple cardboard box can be to a 2-year-old.

Ethan is sans glasses because we lost them for a few days. I thought it wouldn't be a big deal because his new ones were ordered a month ago, so they should have been here anytime. But when I called the optometrist, the company they had sent it to lost his order, and it could take up to another 3 weeks to get them in. Frustrating! Good thing I found the other ones under the couch yesterday.

Best Halloween Costume EVER

This year Ethan got to dress up as his favorite cartoon character-- Swiper the Fox! For all of you less informed individuals, Swiper is the antagonist from Dora the Explorer who always tries to swipe Dora's stuff. If you ask Ethan what Swiper says, he gets excited and says,"Ohhh Maaaaan!!!" Pretty cute. Eric's mom helped me make the costume, we just adapted it from an existing pattern for a reindeer and edited the hood, and it looks just like him! Thanks for all the help, Grandma!!

My cute little fox.

Saying "Oh Man!"

We didn't get a good picture of the tail, but that was the best part. Someone at Trunk or Treat thought he was the squirrel from Ice Age (haha).

For Chase, we used Ethan's Halloween costume (well, sweatshirt :) from 2 years ago-- a pumpkin! It was pretty big on Ethan but it fit Chase pretty well. Don't they look alike?!
