Dancing Boots

I got these great boots for Leo at a consignment sale last week- they're minature fireman boots!
(an ode to Grandpa, who was a fireman)  Leo loves pulling them on his feet and then stomping around the house.  This video shows him dancing a little jig on the coffee table, which he thinks is a stage. What a cutie.

Risky Business

Last week I moved everything off the floor so I could sweep and mop...  Then Leo decided to recreate this classic scene from the 80s...  Tom Cruise in Risky Business.

It was pretty awesome.

Fun with Dad

 Jack and Leo have been wrestling and playing almost non-stop since Jack returned home.  There is so much laughter and silliness- it is wonderful to watch.  I love my two boys!

Happy Halloween

Leo was Elmo for Halloween... or as he calls him, "Melmo."   He wasn't crazy about wearing the costume a few days earlier, so we didn't put it on until we arrived at the church for the Halloween activity. (He was distracted by all the other kids, so he didn't wail when we put it on him.) 

They normally do a Trunk-or-Treat in the parking lot, but they moved it indoors because of the rain this year. We thought it actually worked out better that way because it was warm inside and kids didn't have to wear their coats over their costumes... and it was much easier to keep an eye on Leo in a confined place.  Of course, the kids got their candy, which is all they care about!

Jack and I always dress up for Halloween, but this year we didn't. We just didn't have the time to plan or execute some cool new costumes. (Jack has been gone for the last 6 months!) Maybe we should start brainstorming now so we are ready for next year!
