He Still Loves His Cozy

Today Brandon came up to me and asked for his baby blanket. His "Cozy" was what actually inspired me to name my etsy shop "My Cozy Creations". I got this cozy as a gift at my baby shower when I was pregnant with Brandon. At the time it was so soft, cuddly and cozy. Brandon loved it from the time he was born. It was the only blanket that he wanted to go to sleep with. As a matter of fact, he had to have his cozy with him wherever he went!! We tried to get a couple of other "cozys" but, this was THE cozy! One of his uncles even called him Linus because he would throw a fit if someone tried to take his cozy away! Then all of a sudden he just didn't need it anymore, he was about 2 1/2 when he decided he was too big to carry it around anymore. At this time he also got rid of his binky and didn't want to take naps anymore either. Pretty much all at one time! I wish he would still take naps, but he just doesn't.

So, today he asked for his cozy. And now he's cuddling up with it. His long lost friend. He asks for it every couple of months, so that he can cuddle up with it.

He still loves it!

In no particular order (mainly because I don't feel like rearranging the pictures) here is what our Halloween looked like!

This was or trick-or-treating party! All of the cousins together trick-or-treating in Grandma Jane's neighborhood. Look at poor Adam's face!! He's so scared!! Most of his cousins had scary costumes that he didn't like all too well. The big one with the mask had to take off the mask after these pictures so that Adam could see that he was nice. poor guy.

Adam the dinosaur. He was trick-or-treating for his favorite candy, Whoppers! So when people asked what kind of dinosaur he was we would say the Whopper-saurus! He also was always the last to get his treats at the door, so people would always give him more, because he's cute and because he called all of the ladies Grandma. "thank you gama" cute.

Brandon the Spiderman! My mom cut out the eye holes to be bigger, but as you can see in the top pictures, he didn't even wear the mask when trick-or-treating, because he still couldn't see that well. But he carried his Spiderman head, his candy bucket.

Carving pumpkins that we grew in our garden!!

He's getting too big!!

And last, but not least, we had a visit from Grandma Berta!! And while she was here we made our haunted gingerbread house!! The boys had fun covering the roof in candy corn!

Catching Up

What we've been up to lately...

We went to the fair and saw my ribbons...

And posed for pictures (Adam was asleep in the stroller during this pic)...

Brandon started preschool! He takes the bus all by himself...

And we've been making fun crafts while brother takes his nap!
