Kenny has a metal trash can in his bedroom. This morning it was tipped over and the can’s normal circle shape was more oval. We asked Emma if she had sat on the trash can. Her reply (not edited for grammar) was “I have a small butt. I can’t do it. Maybe Kenny did it.”
We got Emma and Kenny to cooperate for another picture for our blog header. It actually went quite smoothly, as we took less than 30 pictures (total shooting time 1 minute) to get a keeper.
These snowman jammies will always bring back memories of this picture from last Christmas. For those who have not seen it before, no infants where hurt in the shooting of the picture.
This is out of order, but our November has been really nice. Lots of sunshine and temps in the upper 50s and even the lower 60s. Back on the 1st we were playing outside and Emma was getting good at her forward rolls. Here is a little progression of how one of them looked in her church dress.
Kenny spent over 30 minutes in the bathroom today. Kenny loves to shut doors. Kenny also loves to open drawers. The combination of those two things kept the bathroom door from reopening more than just a half of an inch. Tammy even called me at school and I was about to come home, when Kenny finally shut the drawer. The event definitely didn’t phase Kenny as much as it did his mom.
Emma’s preschool went on another field trip on the 19th of November. Tammy and I thought that it might be mostly outside, so Emma has tights on under her jeans and what her mom would consider to be a more functional sweatshirt than a cute one. The whole trip was inside.
Every year we take a picture of Emma in a wedding dress and a swimsuit that were worn by two of her great-grandmothers. For Kenny we will be doing the same with two different hats that were his great-grandfathers and we are also including his grandfathers Army jacket.
The first hat was his Great-Grandfather Howard’s (Tammy’s maternal grandfather).
He didn’t really like to wear the hats, but the main point of this picture is that you can see Kenny’s tummy. Who besides me wants to just give it a little poke?
Here is a little better look of the hat on a little boy that can now crawl away even when we ask him nicely to sit still for a picture.
Great-Grandfather Kenny (Dana’s paternal grandfather) owned this hat.
Here he is trying to get away again.
It took some persistence, but we finally got Kenny to wear Grandpa Swany’s Army jacket. Grandpa Swany was drafted during the Viet Nam war, but spent most of his time in Lawton, OK at Fort Sill.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, we are a little behind in blogging. Here are some from Halloween evening. It was a little cold outside, so we made it to a total of 5 houses, but that was plenty for Emma to get a nice sugar high.
Emma and Ava started the night with a little stretching to get ready for the hard work of trick or treating.
Emma’s cousin Landry was a bride. She is actually wearing her older sister’s flower girl dress. It was the dress that Avery had worn when she was the flower girl at our wedding.

At the Gorman’s just before Halloween, the children of our small group got to decorate cookies and paint pumpkins. They enjoyed it.
