Dru 3 years, Leo 18 months

It was time once again for a formal photo session. Even though they are at home it sure seems that they cooperate less every time. Here are some of the highlights of a fairly frustrating morning. I have to remember to lower my expectations of their behavior and then maybe, just maybe, they would sit still and smile.

Halloween 2010

Tiger and Ladybug
Helping hand out candy after trick or treating

Crazy Leo by our sad jack-o-lantern

October 30th marked one year we've been in our new house. What a difference a year makes!

Since we really don't have a "neighborhood" we drove into Grandma Sue and Grandpa John's house. Leo was able to participate in trick or treating and Dru became more aware of what this holiday had in store for her. Leo was a tiger (I guess he should be a lion next year) and Dru was a ladybug. While trick or treating Dru was more interested in seeing the people's house and seeing if they had any pets. At one house, she asked a young woman, "Why are you in your jammies?". She is too funny. Dru was able to ring the door bell at most of the houses. Leo wasn't able to keep up with her so he got carried most of the way. After about 10 houses we returned to Grandma and Grandpa's house to help hand out candy to other kids. Dru enjoyed that a lot and it seemed to help her get the idea of "get candy and go to next house" not "get candy and go in to their house".
