Nothing Runs Like a Deere



So the saying goes,"Nothing Runs Like A Deere". What the last part should be is "except Jackson getting his picture taken on Halloween"!

I expected that it would be difficult to get a good picture of Miller because he is still floppy. I didn't consider that Jackson loves to pose for pictures...on his terms. So we chased, bribed and generally begged for him to stand still and pose for one decent shot with his brother. In terms of getting that one perfect shot, it just didn't happen. But we have lots of documentation of the *fun* time we had trying to get that perfect shot.
Alas, though we didn't get the perfect shot, we had so much fun. Tuesday we had a Halloween party for Jackson's playgroup. Then Tuesday afternoon we went to the senior center where the children from the Mom's group were in a costume parade. Then on Friday we went to a Halloween festival in the afternoon and to the Gaithersburg Fun Fest at the park near our house. We got lots of use out of the adorable costumes.
You know I love a theme, so I knew that Jackson was going to be a farmer, and when I saw the adorable cow costume at the outlets, I knew it was meant to be. If you look carefully, Jackson has little freckles on his nose, seeds in his bib pocket and a handkerchief in his back pocket. Miller has "MOO" embroidered on each foot. So cute I could eat them up!
What's unbelieveable to me is that this is Jackson's 3rd Halloween! He really enjoyed seeing all the decorations and costumes. Christmas is going to be a ball!

  3. The pics look good. I was interested to see what you came up with that went together. Not exactly captain and parrot, as I thought it might have come out, but I like it! I can't wait to see all of you fairly soon (too soon, academically speaking!)
