All Sorts of Stuff

So firstly, we still cannot decide what Tatton should be for Halloween. I don't know why it's so difficult? We still really like the Nacho idea, he has the perfect little belly and chubby legs to be in tights. But we were going through some patterns that my Mom has, she always makes the grandkids' costumes, and she has a really cute pattern for a skunk. So we like that idea too. Ugh, we'll see.
Secondly we have FINALLY finished the canning projects for this year. We finished doing our pears at 3 am this morning. We are exhausted, we have been having canning marathons for the past 3 weekends. I'm not kidding, we have canned stewed tomatoes, salsa, apple sauce, apple pie filling, peaches, grape juice, grape jelly, strawberry jam, raspberry jam, apple-cinnamon jelly, pickled beats and pears. So take that food storage! We are so happy to be done, for this year. Last night Tatton was trying so hard to help us with the pears. He took a pear at a time out of the bucket and set it on the table for me to peel and took a bite out of a few of them, lil stinker. So we put in Dumbo to keep him a little entertained because it has a "choo-choo" in it and animals. He was hooked. Here is a little picture of him glued to the movie. And that's one of my blankets by the way... not Tatton's.
And thirdly, we've had yet again a little mishap with the flour. This time it was with my bread flour which is in a bucket but he was "helping" me make bread. I usually try and make bread when he is asleep but that's not always possible. So I had a helper and I knew when I had to get my 2 cups of flour out, he'd be all over it. As I was putting the first cup in the mixer, he ran to the kitchen utinsel drawer, pulled out a bunch of different tools, and started digging. Good times! It wasn't as bad as before, and he looked pretty darn cute so what can you do?

And yes, he is eating/licking the flour off the floor. Also, for those of you who know my brother Rusty, I think Tatton looks a lot like him in this picture, well atleast Rusty's baby pictures.

And fourthly... those of you who are anxiously awaiting to find out if we are having a boy or girl, we hopefully will find out on Monday, yay!

Why don't you have him be both. I always have two costumes for Reese. There's usually other things that you could dress them up for, so use both.
