November 2013

Our family loves Christmas time! This weekend we put up lights, Luca was very helpful, and in-spite of me almost cutting off my finger and spending a few hours in the emergency room we got it done.

The next day we rolled to The Holiday Express.  The Holiday Express is a steam train in SE Portland and is pulled by the SP&S 700 steam locomotive.

It travels from Oaks Park alongside the river.  There were lights and decorations and Santa even paid a visit! Luca and Autumn loved it!

Afterwards we stood outside as it took off, huffing and chuffing, with steam everywhere.  It was pretty cool and we’re making plans to see the other engines soon.

Bedtime Stories

Every night Luca gets to pick out 3 books for us to read to him, but tonight Luca decided he wanted to read to me.

Halloween!

Halloween time! First, carve the pumpkins.

Daddy decided to have fun with the little pumpkin again this year. The difference is that this year, Luca has a new level of awareness about the world around him, and he’s also right in the middle of the “why” phase. Daddy had to field A LOT of questions and discussion about why the big pumpkin was eating the little pumpkin, for several days…

Ok, costumes on kiddos!

All set to go trick or treating

Let’s go!

Trick or treat! Luca was in character the entire time, making really loud train whistle sound effects as we walked down the street and even while we chatted with each neighbor on the doorstep.

Autumn actually picked up on the idea of walking up to each door and putting candy in her bag, and didn’t want me to help her out. But what she really enjoyed more than anything was being allowed to walk wherever she wanted in the middle of the street. Freedom!

Needless to say, he LOVES his costume

All done trick or treating, now back to our house to enjoy the decorations. Happy Halloween everyone!
