Take Out Night

One night, while feeling particularly pooped, Shawn volunteered to make dinner. With waffles on the menu it seemed like we couldn't lose...

And now we know what happens when you don't spray the waffle maker. Maybe you're not laughing but I sure was. Take out it was.

Fresh Green Tomatoes

We had a very warm late October, early November and our tomato crop kept cropping. One day we were hanging outside and I gave him all of the little sweet orange tomatoes (sun sugar tomatoes, they're ripe when they're orange) and when they were gone he didn't seem to understand why I wasn't giving him anymore. He was going to town on these green ones and it kind of cracked me up.

Don't you just love the green seeds stuck to his chin?

A Hamburger Halloween

Getting a descent photo of a mobile hamburger is harder than you might think. For example, here he is with his monkey cousin Jackson. Believe it or not, this is the best shot I got of the two of them.
I confess that the reason I didn't get a better one is because I kind of forgot about my camera this Halloween and the next two were taken as an after thought once the kid was in his jammies and ready for bed, hence the garlic press to keep him entertained...problem with that was he was squishing his burger...
And finally we have the whole kid, facing forward and the whole costume...keep in mind I never promised he'd be happy about it.

Pumpkin Carving/Chewing

Pumpkin carving with a one year old is a whole new experience, pretty fun though. He was a little apprehensive about the guts, I thought he'd be really into it but not so much. He was however pretty into looking into the hole and gnawing on the rim.

Columbus Day the Lindseth Way

Once again, I'm behind. Shocker.

You know what's great? Government holidays with my husband off work! For Columbus Day we decided it'd be fun to go up the canyon, have a picnic and look at some lovely fall foliage.

It was considerably colder in the mountains than in the valley, go figure. But we shivered our way through our food and when we were moving around and playing we had a gay ol' time. Berky loves the outdoors and he was really loving the crunchy leaves.
