Unfortunately this year Cezanne’s school had to cancel their fall festival but we did still go and check out the Trunk or Treat event at the other school near home. There was a small “pumpkin patch” which made for the above photo op. The event had 30+ cars decorated for Halloween and collecting tins of food for a local food bank. Both kids just picked “costumes” out of our dress up wardrobe and saved their “official” costumes for the Halloween…

Girl Friend ( one of so many )

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 21:12

Not only did Etienne start life around girls ( his sister and her friend Chloe and her sister Megan ) but he is now in a class with almost all girls. He has often mentioned that he has 100 girl friends ! Pretty impressive for a guy that is just 3 !

Here he had a play date with one of his best girl friends, Peyton and they built Duplo towers with Lanelle !

Annual Apple Picking

Filed under: Places Visited,Special Events — Dad @ 21:05

We have now made an annual fall apple picking outing a bit of a tradition. This year we tried a farm closer to home that Lanelle found. We tried Gabriel Farm and really enjoyed it. They were a small independent farm but provided us with just what we needed, trees and apples to pick !

Pumpkin Patch w/ Twins

Filed under: Just Everyday,Places Visited — Dad @ 20:59

Lanelle met a mother of twin girls on a walk around the neighborhood and the girls and Etienne have had a couple of play dates. We took the kids to a local pumpkin patch on what turned out to be a really cold and miserable day, but that also meant we had the whole patch to ourselves.

Etienne turned 3 on September 22, but we waited until October the 6th to have his party. This gave him a bit more time at his new school to get familiar with his classmates who we then invited to the party. We also had other friends along for all of the fun. We had the party at My Gym and they did a really good job with a mix of kids ( from 3 to 6 years old ). Happy Birthday Etienne !!

Just as the school year starts for big sister Cezanne, they hold a fund raising event called Gator Gallop. Etienne and I attended to cheer Cezanne and her class on as they ran around the field. Near the end of the run Etienne joined his sister for a lap and celebrated with a colorful ice lolly ! Yum !

Blame Mothers & Sisters !

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 02:23

Etienne, you don’t know what you are doing…
I blame your mother and your sister for this set of photos !

They are unfortunately too cute not to share, but I have to just shake my head – why ?

Apparently Cezanne and Etienne were playing dress up and in this house we are very low on any real boy dress up stuff just because we had Cezanne and she loved it and Etienne has never really shown much interest, except today, when he had to be part of the game…

Actually 3 !

Filed under: Milestones,Special Events — Dad @ 02:20

The big day arrived and our little giant finally turned 3, only 3, yes he is the size of a 5 year old according to the doctor and he seems to comprehend at the level of a 4 year old, but he is still just 3 years old.

With him now in school the changes and growth are going to be exponential and Lanelle is going to have her hands full trying to keep him stimulated, interested and out of trouble !!

Helicopter Halloween

Etienne was finally at an age this year where we could ask him what he might want to be for Halloween and he could actually give us an answer, quite a few actually so we needed to provide some help and guidance. It did help that we ran into a nice collection of choices and of all the stereotypes we found that the “fighter pilot” looks the most unique. Since Etienne loves helicopters we just decided that this was a helicopter pilots costume and so he is now all set !
