Despite their strep throat diagnosis, Cate and Ben had a fun weekend that started with a day at home while the antibiotics worked. But they still got to play in leaves …
Then Cate decorated pumpkins …
And then on Sunday, we were barely at home. And the kids seemed fine with that.
After church and a quick nap, we celebrated Davey and Eva’s first birthday. They are 3 1/2 weeks older than Ben. You may remember their early friendship. And their many photos together, including Ben and Davey’s matching outfits, more than once.
The sports-themed party was really fun and, as you’ll see, Davey really loved his cake. Oh, and, Ben loved his first-ever cheese puff. He then stole someone else’s cupcake, but we snatched it before he got much more than a couple of bites. I can only imagine what he’s going to do when we actually give him a piece of birthday cake.
And, although I don’t have pictures, we really loved the fall festival at Westside Baptist Church, where Cate goes to preschool. There was trunk-or-treating, games, free food and farm animals. We’re hoping this is a new Halloween tradition for our family because it was more fun that old-fashioned trick-or-treating.
Ben also had a second helping of cheese puffs at the fall festival. It was quite a day for our boy who loves to eat.
Life as I know it says
I have similar photos of the boys in a pile of leaves. Funny how things change, but stay the same too.
