Fall fun

We love fall in the Hurd household! From the decorations to the delicious smelling candles, slow cooker meals and pumpkin patches ever weekend. We I love it. We have been so busy lately that I haven't had time to blog. So instead I just created a photo album on Facebook of our latest happenings. Although I must be getting old because I couldn't figure out how to caption the pictures.

This year I assumed would be the last year that I would get a say in Nolan's Halloween costume. Wrong. I have an extremely opinionated 2 year old. The boy is not even 2.5 years old, but he sure does know what he wants (and doesn't want). So, we started out asking him what he wanted to be and got all kinds of answers, cow, rooster, Jake, Dora, Boots, dog. I assumed this would continue so since he had mentioned Jake from Jake and the Neverland pirates I went with it and bought him the costume. He loved it! Then...he started saying he wanted to be a doggy. Then he was saying he wanted to be a doggy and would get on all fours and say "woof, woof, woof"! So I started to look at dog costumes. At this point my very stubborn child threw at me, "I want to be a white doggy, I don't want my Jake costume." I felt I needed to remind him that he is 2 and I should be picking and am confused at how he is already to the point of deciding his Halloween costume on him own.

So, I have been searching for a white dog costume and have not had any luck, but I found a brown dog. Well turns out he is scared of the dog costume and refuses to even look at it. So, he is back to wanting to be Jake. I suppose he will remain with that choice, but stay tuned.

I am looking forward to Halloween this year! Last year we started a little tradition with the Hastings and Ainsworth families and I hope we continue to do so!
