Halloween is Spooktacular!

As you can see, we had two Care Bears residing at our house this Halloween. Julia was Funshine Bear and Finn was Bedtime Bear (Julia calls them "Sunshine Bear" and "Sleepy Bear," respectively).

Below, Julia is talking on the phone after getting ready to go out trick-or-treating. While talking to him, Julia sang Uncle Jason the Care Bear song, just in case he didn't believe that she really liked them.

Julia had fun walking around our neighborhood trick-or-treating. However, she did not like anyone wearing a mask. And by "not like" I mean "would nearly break down crying out of fright". But her courage prevailed and she came home with a nice bucketful of treats.
Be sure to read the title again - it contains the best pun ever.

Julia takes things into her own hands...

Julia decided that she wanted to feed her brother supper earlier tonight. It was super cute! Finn smiled each time she put a spoonful of baby cereal into his mouth. Then Julia commented, "I'm feeding Finn! Now it's in his belly!" Enjoy the picture...

Up Close and Personal Wednesday!

Julia likes getting close up pictures of herself now you get to see 'em. Don't worry, I'll add some other stuff too.

Here's a movie of Finn taking his first bath in the little blue tub. Before this he always bathed in the kitchen sink. Compare Finn's mood to Julia's first bath in this tub - hers consisted of a lot of screaming. Yeah, it's a little dark.

Click here to open the video in a new window.

Here's a brighter shot of the same scene. Julia insisted on trying it out, for the sake of nostalgia.

When did she become naughty?

Maybe she's paying us back for never being a climber when she was little... She was supposed to be washing her hands after going to the bathroom. I went to check on her and found this:
And here's a few pictures of Finn, in case anyone would like to see him too. He's been rolling around a lot to try to get certain toys that he likes. He reaches and stretches for things that he wants. In the mornings, when he just wakes up, he's really smiley and happy - unlike child #1 who refuses to get out of bed... (Is she 3 or 13?)

I may be a bad blogger...

(considering: 9/29/07 to 10/10/07 without posting) but I'm still a great dad!

Here's Finn using his jumper. Just recently, he's been bouncing a little in it, rather than just spinning in circles.
Julia wanted to make me breakfast in bed. So she got everything out to make it...and she made a little mess. But it all worked out because she still got to bring me a heaping bowel of cereal after I climbed back into bed.
