SNL Skit-- Audition for Bon Jovi (Cracks me up every time!)

Here's on Skit Shaun LOVES...the Pepper Skit!!!

Halloween 2010

Unfortunately, Enoch has gotten Hand, foot, and Mouth Disease--from somewhere this week and now I also have it. I have it worse than him--blisters on my hands and feet. Its awful. (Symptoms don't appear until you've had time to spread it to others.--1-6 days.)

So, we're celebrating this Halloween inside. Here's what Enoch was this year....a mini Shaun! Please note the eyeliner beard! It wasn't the easiest to put on...nor the easiest to take off...but it was cute.
For dinner--Shaun picked us up some Banditos from downtown. 
(FYI: Since its gotten new owners, it doesn't taste as good. My taste-buds are in mourning.)

Pumpkin Patch--Stoney Ridge Farm--Whatcom County's favorite pumpkin haunt

This is Enoch waiting by the door for us to go. He loves to get out of the, Saturday, October 16, we went to Stoney Ridge Farm. (His first time...Shaun & I's third.)

It had opened about 10 minutes before we got there--and there was a line to get in. (I've never been "clubbing"--but it was like the line in movies--without bouncers--and people were nice...and it was morning...and there were lots of kids...and--ya'know, it's not probably like a club line.)
Enoch's da-da getting an ear rub.
Enoch didn't really like the you can see...the cow was interested in him and started coming closer...and he/she was too big for Enoch. He whined and grabbed my legs--asking for reassurance and protection. In all--he liked the small animals, like the goats, birds, bunny, but not the large animals like the cows and horses.

More interested in the rocks, Enoch takes a moment to enjoy himself in the pumpkin patch.
Shaun locating a wheelbarrow.
Ma-ma got to hold hands with Enoch! Lucky lady!
"Ooo, oh, da-da." (He saw the miniature goats)

Final ride to the car. He thought it was okay.

All in all, an awesome outing!

Wenatchee--Been There, Done That---Weldon Get Together

We went to Wenatchee this weekend to have a dinner with Shaun's family--to enjoy his Grandpa, who is suffering from prostate cancer. Almost all of the extended family made it to the event, and Lindsay and Enoch got to meet many people for the first time. But before we saw them, we checked into our hotel, and Enoch had fun checking out the closet. Daddy even got in on the fun.

This was our room at the Coast Hotel

 Enoch enjoyed watching the train go by.
Shaun's dad and his 6 siblings, surrounding their parents for a picture.

Enoch meeting daddy's cousin Joseph.

Enoch absolutely loved Auntie Critt's sugar free Oreo cheesecakes. They were yummy.

The cousins and Enoch had a great time playing together.

Enoch had fun with the puppies. I think it was the first time that he played with puppies smaller than he was. This one is named Bueno.

Great Grandpa and Enoch share a moment.

 Lots to play with and lots to look at.

Extreme close up!

Goodbye Wenatchee.
We had a very fun visit and are very grateful for the hard work and planning that went into this get together. It was so great to see everyone and have them meet Enoch and Lindsay.

Tupperware Cabinet

Enoch just realized that he can sit inside the tupperware cabinet-- "his cabinet."

By the end, Enoch was throwing stuff out of the cabinet to make more room for him. I was glad he was having fun. After I finished taking these pictures, Enoch started to wrap up his play time. I turned around and saw him putting the stuff he'd thrown out previously--BACK IN THE CABINET!! He melted my heart!!! I was so hopeful for the future--a tidy child!!

In preparation of nursery at church when he turns 18 months, we started teaching Enoch the "clean up" song. There's not much to it:
         Clean Up, Clean Up --everybody everywhere
         Clean Up, Clean Up-- everybody do your share
         Clean Up, Clean Up-- everybody everywhere
(The end--or repeat until mess is resolved.)

Enoch seems to like the song, but at the end, he dumps everything out--and leaves. Its a trick to try and swipe the toys up and away before he thinks to make a mess again. Really--its the wood blocks that I must keep track of--and keep together while he's playing. There really easy to step on...and Enoch likes to throw them.
