Bad Blogger

Holy Hannah it's been 3 weeks since I last blogged!  Sorry about that!  We've been busy and sick and not very photo-happy the last month or so.  But I thought I should finally post a few pictures from Halloween! We didn't get many pictures of his costume, which as you can clearly see is Linus from "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown".  He's still mostly in a non-picture-taking mood these days, and this is the best we could get.  His costume was well-received in the neighborhood--lots of "Ah--Linus!  How cute!" comments.  Which is good since this was the best we could do as far as dressing up--Mr. D didn't want anything to do with costumes, especially if they meant wearing something on his head.  But we had a great time trick-or-treating, and Dashiell was super excited to have his lollipops.  He didn't quite understand the concept of limiting candy intake and was a bit upset that I stopped him from having a second Kit Kat (after he had 2 lollipops and the first Kit Kat).  But he got over it, and thankfully seemed to forget all about candy the next day.  After eating my share, I brought the rest to work (where I ate even more of it...sigh).

We carved pumpkins the week before, and the best part seemed to be post-carving, when Dash could take the top off the jack-o-lantern over and over and over (and over!) again.  Note that the pumpkin was not lit--he was just a little too interested in it.  We were able to light it during trick-or-treats, but that was it.  Then I proceeded to leave it in our entryway a bit too long, and threw out a very gross pumpkin earlier this week.  Yuck.

Dashiell has been loving the leaves this fall, and I tried showing him how to jump into a pile of freshly raked leaves.  He mostly just waded in.  I, however, found out why you don't see many adults jumping into piles of leaves--they don't offer much padding when you land, and you land much harder when you're big than when you're small! 

I should have some new professional photos to put up on the blog soon - Meghan of Megpix Photography was able to get some really great pictures of Dash (he didn't protest for once!), I just need to pick out which ones we want!

Happy Fall, everyone!

Don't kit kats have peanut butter in them? And no worries, I haven't blogged in forever either!

Kit Kats don't have peanut butter, though they are manufactured in a facility that also produces peanut products. We definitely took a risk, and kept the benedryl and epipen close at hand. But Kit Kats a soooo good!

Good to know, since we are still nut-free too.
