Happy Halloween!

As you can tell, Thomas the train is HUGE in our house right now. So when I found these train conductor outfits, I thought they'd be perfect for Halloween. And then it occurred to me that they had no idea who train conductors are or what they do. We had a halloween party for playgroup yesterday, so I got the boys dressed up in their costumes before we left. (The wooden slide was brought up from the basement, which we had to clear out because we are finishing it off for the boys. More on that.)



Winston, Charlie, and Wes

Then as we walked out the door, Charlie decided to strip his costume off and threw a fit when I tried to put it back on. Yay toddlers!
One of these kids is doing his own thing...

Uh...there's a bear in here

The feeding frenzy

Reading to each other

Grammy brought over 3 Tommy Train books for the boys. Silence is never a good thing in our house. So when I didn't hear a peep from the playroom, I went in to see what trouble the boys were getting into. Instead, I found them reading their new books to each other!
Wesley started out reading to Winston...

Then Charlie joined in for storytime...

Then they all ended up on the couch to watch Thomas

Fun with glowsticks

Rob impulsively picked up 3 glowsticks for the boys at the checkout of the grocery store last night. And what a wonderful thing it was that he did! He brought them out for the boys after dinner and they played with them non-stop for 30 minutes - in the dark! Any toy that keeps their interest for 30 minutes is a miracle.
