Bee stings, breakthroughs, and building

Davis was stung by a bee today and it was so sad. He just crumpled to the ground crying and I couldn't figure out what was wrong. Finally I saw the stinger coming out of his finger. Thankfully he doesn't swell like I do but he just walked around for about an hour holding his hand out in front of him with a look like "FIX IT!" Nothing a frozen gogurt couldn't solve since that was the best way I could think of to get cold on his finger.

For those that don't know Caleb's background on Halloween- HE HATES IT! When he was 22 months we got him a cute Disco outfit and he literally ripped it off! Last year he spend most of the night, after John and I manhandled him into his costume, crying and whining to have it taken off. So this year I decided it wasn't worth the battle. When Grandma Caroline was in town though she found a little Thomas costume that wasn't to much to put on and got it for him. I didn't think there was anyway he would have anything to do with it but he is getting older and smarter because he came in, IN FULL COSTUME, and said, "Mom, I'm ready to go get candy now." Here he is all proud and willing. Thanks Grandma!

Lastly here are the most recent pictures of the house. There is no framing showing now. The people who are taping the drywall are funny because they walk around on stilts. Its cool and very effective.

You house is beautiful and I'm so excited for you! As for Caleb, well, a little Grandma Crazyness is good for kids now and again. I want photo's of both boys out at Halloween!

Isn't it amazing the little breakthroughs with the kids that you would never expect, like Caleb's costume. Just tonight I was trying to feed Ty, but he wouldn't eat- he wanted to do it himself. I didn't want him to feed himself because he would get too dirty. Ash suggested I pretend the spoon is a choo-choo. I almost politely brushed her off, but instead tryed her suggestion. Ty ate the whole bowl of dinner!

How could he not love wearing a costume if it means he gets to be Thomas? And he knows it's time to get candy. Smart kid.
