Preschool Halloween Party

Introducing... SUPER JACK!  (and Dyno-Dog)

Jack had is big Halloween party at preschool on Monday and he debuted his costume.  The mask and cape were store-bought. Daddy made the shirt (a little big), Mommy bought the shoes and pants, and Nana made the belt and bracelets, I mean "Power Bands".

Kirby's bandana is courtesy of PetSmart's grooming center.

They started off with a big costume parade. And no big deal or anything, but Jack got to lead it. You heard me.
Once inside they did a craft project where they decorated picture frames for a photo they took that morning.



Then they got in a circle and did a little game where they rolled a ball of yarn back and forth to each other and made a big spider-web. Then they passed a stuff pumpkin around while music played.  When it stopped, they got to do a trick.




Jack's trick was the power of flight.

Then they went into the music room and performed a bunch of Halloween songs (Including your favorite and mine, "Halloween Cat".)


Then it was snack time and photo ops left and right.



One with a beautiful princess...


One with a scary beast...

And one with a little girl (tall girl) who I think has a crush on him. He says each day she supposedly says, "You're cute." And he replies, "No, I'm Jack." I cannot verify the validity of these actions but her mom said she does talk about him all the time.

Pumpkin Pach 2012

Made our annual trip to the Big Orange Pumpkin Farm, which always begins with the ritual "Feeding of the Animals".




Which then leads into the hay ride. Mugging with Daddy.


 Hanging with a pretty lady.


I'm pretty sure he's two feet taller than last year.



He actually rode the train (a riding mower pulling cut open barrels with wheels) all by himself. Pretty impressed.


And then on to the cattle roping exhibition.

Dino Eggs

Jack loves him some "projects." Heather put tiny plastic dinosaurs into some balloons, filled them with water and froze them.  Then she and Jack peeled the balloons off to revel frozen "dinosaur eggs."  Jack got to take a hammer to to them. Fun ensued.

Fall at the Dallas Arboretum

Getting ready to head out. Looking so big. And so handsome.


The Fam.
 The Chihuly exhibit was still on display. Jack soaked in the culture.

He's thinking about becoming a homeowner. Interest rates are good, so why not?

The place is lily-pad-pond-adjacent.


 Posing with Mommy. May have a bit of a snack in his mouth at this moment.

 Nana approaches the elusive boy.
 Nana and Papa K.
 King of Pumpkin Mountain.

 Having a laugh with Papa K.
