Halloween at Daddie's work

Last week it was Halloween for kids at Daddie's work. Odin dressed up like a horse and had a lot of fun running around with his horse!
We decorated some cookies, which Odin was very good at since he gets lots of practice squeezing the ketchup bottle at home (sometime too much practice!).
He charmed everyone at Daddie's work with his big smile!

Fish Tank

Bubbe (Grandma Fern) came to visit for a couple of days. During the visit they set up a fish tank. Bubbe was amazingly patient and an excellent teacher in how to set up fish tanks! She helped Odin wash the rocks...
carry the rocks to the fish tank (located in the sunroom)...

pour them in the fish tank...

and then arrange the plants perfectly. Odin also helped fill the tank with water. It was MANY trips back and forth from the kitchen to the tank using the quart-sized yogurt container to carry water (10 gallon tank)! HA, we helped him.

Then once the tank was perfect we purchased some fish! On the way home from the pet store one of the bags broke, but a quick pull-over and rescue of the loose fish occurred and fortunately all survived and are happily swimming in their new home!

Odin and Jackson

Odin has a new playmate...Jackson . They live next to us and the boys have a blast playing together. Jackson is exactly 1 year older than Odin and is rather patient with him!

Yesterday Dad pushed them on the swing...they really enjoyed being able to swing together (instead of having to take turns...who likes to take turns anyway1?!?!).

One, two, three...BLAST-OFF!

Odin and Maya

Today was a special day for Odin...we got to watch one of his favorite gals, Maya while the dad's worked on the land in Norlina (prepping for hunting season). We started the morning by making breakfast (eggies!).

Maya was much more serious about the crackin'...

Odin was just a ham for the camera!

After breakfast we played A LOT! Maya taught Odin how to play hide-and-go-seek. Odin loved hiding with Maya (he actually loves doing ANYTHING with Maya;-).
