Here are more Halloween pictures plus pictures of Tommy's birthday party. He and a neighbor had a birthday party together. The kids decorated train cupcakes and played with a pinata.

Tommy enjoyed visiting a pumpkin patch this year. He also now understands that halloween means pumpkins and candy. Dressing up in a costume was not his favorite part of the holiday. Once he saw Leslie in her butterfly costume, Tommy refused to wear his monkey costume because he wanted to be a butterfly too. He wore his superman pjs instead.

And even more pictures...

And more pictures...

Here are some pictures of the kids. Tommy loves his new baby sister. I can't believe how well they are getting along...

So, it has been forever since we updated. I am posting some pictures to explain why it has been so long. Her name is Leslie Caroline MacFerrin, and she was born on March 17, 2008, St. Patrick's Day. I am just going to post a lot of pictures for right now, and I will add stories later.

Tommy has turned 2. The first picture shows that Tommy likes to do everything we do, including brushing his own teeth before bedtime. The second picture was from a very frustrating day. I had been letting Tommy play with colormagic finger paints because they only make color on the special paper. Tommy shows that in addition to being finger paints, they are a very special hair gel as well. I have included one picture from Tommy's birthday party and a picture of Tommy eating snow on a very cold day. This is his favorite thing about snow, that it is edible. Unfortunately, he does not understand that fresh snow is the snow to eat. I have caught him trying to eat the snow off the car tires. Fortunately, I caught him before it entered his mouth. I will post more pictures soon.

Tommy was a dragon this year for Halloween. It took him some time to grasp the whole concept. He did not like the head piece to his costume, and he would not allow us to put it on him. He also did not like it when people put candy in his bag. Obviously, he got over this pretty quick, but the highlight of his evening was going to the park after dark.

Tommy's going to have a baby sister...

Tommy's First Camping Trip

Mike took Tommy camping back in September, and he had a great time (except for the whole sleeping thing). Tommy loved playing and exploring outside. He is truly fearless as you can see from the pictures. I am amazed he has not required an emergency room visit for stitches or a broken bone.

I know it has been forever since I updated the blog. Here are some pictures, I will update it again sometime this week with more pictures. Tommy is getting so big. He is starting to use two-word sentences. Mainly, he tells things hello and good-bye. These are pictures from our first trip to Houston this summer. The last picture is of the riverwalk in San Antonio. Mike and I took a side trip for a night. This was about two hours before the skies opened up and the city flooded. We had a wonderful time on the trip. I will update the blog with more pictures soon.
