Fall/Halloween Weeks 3 and 4

  This last two weeks were a blast! We painted, picked apples and pumpkins, enjoyed the last days of warm weather.
Leaf Prints! I let Jared hunt out all the leafs he wanted on one of our many walks.

I adore these footprint Ghosts. I have done one every year since Jared's first Halloween. So neat to see the change each year. This is the last two.

Leaf Rubbings. Jared thought it was cool but it wasn't easy for him. 

Hand print spiders. The both loved these.

Our first attempt at Caramel Apples. Jared didn't like touching so he just directed me on what to put each apple into.

Our big pumpkin

Liam was curious and yes he tried to eat it.

Jared wouldn't touch it but liked watching and Directing me how to make the face.

Recently got these from a co op and love them for moments like the pumpkin decorating.

Jared was very proud of his paint job.

All of our pumpkins on the porch ready for Halloween!

Liam picking his first apple!

Jared really had the hang of it this year!

Jared picked the perfect Pumpkin

The Perz Family! 
And just a plug for something coming up that is awesome for the littles. ReindeerCam! Every day starting Nov. 1st Santa will be out feeding the reindeer and you can watch it live! He made a surprise appearance a few nights ago and watching Jared light up about Santa was wonderful. 

We have more cute and fun crafts in the works. Please visit our Facebook and the Website.

Fall Theme Week 2

We did more worksheets and a few projects. LT (Liam) is really getting into doing projects with us. I made a separate sensory box that is safe for him to play with while we work. I set him up in the playpen with his box and let him explore while QC (Jared) and I work hard. Go HERE to see all of our pictures for this theme.

A few shots of our hard work!
This one was so much fun for Jared! He got to pick it from my fall pinboard! 

His pencil grip is getting so good and he is more and more refusing to use his left hand (which he has better control with) to use his right. Just need him to grip lower on the pencil to have more control.
G's were hard but he is loving making his letters.

Liam Safe Sensory play. I still need to stay with him to be sure he doesn't eat anything. A paci in his mouth is wonderful at keeping things out of his mouth. Pom Poms, Halloween Erasers, Foam Gourds, Felt Leaves, Felt bats and spiders. 

Playing in his high chair.

Playing together in the living room. Jared did NOT want to take his new lighting jammies off that day.

Liam hard at work painting his pumpkin.

Liam is on the left, Jared's is on the Right! Jared chose to paint with a paintbrush
