David received a package in the mail. He insists the "PBS" man brought it to our house, he means the UPS man. Either way it is incorrect, it was the postal carrier and she put it in our mailbox. David was excited to open the package. His firefighter costume was delivered by the UPS man and so all packages are now held to that standard.
Here is David's surprise...
According to David the card that was enclosed said, "David run fast.", which has nothing to do with the pumpkins and Happy Halloween on the card. David dismissed Mommy's logical thinking and went with, David can run fast.
Thanks Gram and Grandad for our new book, it will be a bedtime hit - we just know it!
Today David turns two years and five months old. It also happens to be Angie's 36th birthday today. Her best gift, being home with David today.
When he woke this morning Angie mentioned she was going to pull out David's clothes for the day. He immediately said he wanted his car carrier shirt. So car carrier shirt it was. David has opinions on most everything now including what he wears.
David is very into the movie Cars, but his absolute favorite thing is Fireman Sam. He can surf YouTube for long periods of time looking for a new Fireman Sam.
We are enjoying David more and more each day, but just this week he is beginning to show us his strong opinions when we are not doing exactly as he requests. He is learning he does not always get what he wants... let's just say it is a hard lesson for Mommy and David.
Happy 29 month birthday our love!
We enjoyed another great evening at our church. Tonight was Riverfest, new name after over a decade as Hallelujah Hoedown. David enjoyed playing the games and getting "surprises." We all enjoyed a hayride, petting zoo, the costume parade, and seeing friends and coworkers we were not expecting to see. We are blessed to have a church home that we love as much as we love Riverbend! Here is our night in pictures.
David was adamant that he did not want his hat. Daddy thought it was too hot to zip and button David's jacket so hopefully by Halloween we can have all of the pieces in place for his costume!

on the hayride, David said it was his favorite event of the night, you can't tell from this picture
David won a lolly-pop... he had been wanting this "surprise" all night. The smile was priceless!
And we ended our night with the costume parade, David loves the stage:)
