sharks, shoes, fire trucks, scarecrows

(I meant to post this last week. Then Brian started working on a program to sync our pictures between our 2 computers. I wanted to wait for the picures to finish this post.)

We have had a full few days. Brian and I did not go out Monday night. We hung out at the house with Jacob and let him practice wearing his shark costume for Halloween. He likes for us to chase him around the house with the costume, but he does not really care to wear it.

Yesterday morning he was ready to get up at 4:30 a.m. Not fun! I was already up trying to do a little work. Then he woke up and it was a whole new ball game. This morning he woke up at 5:00. We snoozed for about 45 minutes. After I changed his diaper, he was ready to put on his shoes. Jacob has this weird love of shoes. So I put his sandals on his feet, and he ran around the house in them for about an hour until it was time to get ready for school.

Today when we got home, there was a fire truck on a nearby street. It just so happens that Jacob learned about fire trucks and fire safety last week at school. So we started to walk by the fire truck when the firemen came out of a house. One of them waved and another waved and approached us. He ended up letting Jacob sit in the fire truck! I wish I had had a camera on me! He had this look of "whatever" on his face until he looked out of the windshield. Then he got a really excited look on his face. The fireman gave us some stickers and we went on our way. By the way, did you know that firemen will come out to your house to change the batteries in your smoke detector?!?!

Finally, I put out a few of my fall decorations tonight. I still have more, but you can see my start.
