Below is a sneak peak at Claire's Halloween costume. She's the cutest little butterfly I've ever seen. And she seems to like the wings on her back. They helped her crawl up the stairs pretty fast. Now that Cody is 2.5 he has an opinion about everything, including his Halloween costume. So far he's suggested Fom-ka (the Russian swiping bear from Dora's World Adventure), Ming Ming the WonderPet (because Ming Ming's cape is green), and his Clifford costume from last year (which still mostly fits).
Cody has been helping me cook lately. Below is a picture of him helping me make banana bread (by the way, he no longer says "babanana" and I really miss it). He was mostly interested in just burying the bananas.
