He had an "udderly" good time!

Our neighborhood decided to have Halloween Saturday night instead of tonight.  When I first heard a few weeks ago, I was a little bummed, but now that it's all over I am really glad it worked out this way.  We were able to trick or treat Saturday, eat a bunch of candy, stay up late, and not worry about waking up early the next day for work and school.  Sunday we had a restful day and enjoy the Saint's game (even though they lost to an win-less team.)  Tonight, Halloween night, we stopped by the local festival at the park and then stopped by Granddaddy's house for a very quick (30 minute visit.  Nana, I'm so sorry we didn't come by.  We had to go help Mimi and Pop.  I'll come see you this week....I promise!)

Logan was an adorable cow and got so many compliments while we were parading around the neighborhood.  He had a ball running down the street and got pretty good about going up to the neighbors' doors.  He took the candy from many people and put it right into his bag.  When the neighbors just held out the bowls, Logan thought he was supposed to take the whole bowl.  We got a good chuckle! 

Look at that tummy!

My favorite! 

My other favorite! 

We took him to about 15 houses and I think he had a really good time! 

I don't know when he was cuter, the turtle or the cow?

Party Animal - (Pre Halloween)

Thursday night, Gymboree was hosting a private Halloween party, so we decided to take our little fireman up there.  Logan was running around outside in his fireman boots the other day, and our sweet neighbor, offered us her son's old fireman raincoat and hat.  I gladly accepted and I'm so glad we did.  He loved it and sure did make a handsome fireman hunk! 

We had a great time at Gymboree playing, going on a pumpkin hunt, having snacks, painting pumpkins and bags, and just being silly.  Then we headed next door to Kroger because they were also having a Halloween event.  It was packed, so we didn't stay long.  We did however, have to check out the firetruck outside of Publix.  Logan was a little unsure of it once we got up close. 

on a pumpkin hunt!

Who know Kroger would be so fun on a Thursday night?

21 months!

I'm a little late, but man are things busy right now.  School is stressing me out, classes and homework are getting to be too much, a clean house now consist of sporadic vacuums, clean toilets, and corralling toys into baskets as quick as my little helper can pull them out again.  BUT, amongst all this craziness, we still take time to stop and be a family and be thankful for the many blessings around us. 

Logan has had an eventful month and he is doing so many new things.  I'm not sure about his latest stats, but I'm sure he's close to 30 pounds.  I swear the boy just. keeps. growing!  I put a pair of his jeans on him the other day, and Chris wanted to know why I had put Logan in capris.  We are right on the edge of of 24 months and 2T clothes.  He is still sporting size 4 diapers, and has a new trick with his diaper.  When he only has a diaper on, which is not very often thanks to this little trick, he likes to pull his :ahem: friend out through the top and just let "him" peek out!  This was, (okay, still is), hilarious until I thought about him trying to do this with pants on at school or out in public.  I can imagine the call now: "Jessica, umm, Logan has been exposing himself today to the other children."  Oh My!  I would be mortified!

Logan has also become an expert at opening doors.  Not only can he open them, but he can stealth out of them without anyone knowing.  Yes, we are speaking from an actual encounter.  Luckily it was at Mimi and Pops and they live way out so he was just taking a walk back behind the house to his favorite tree.  Yes, we have knobs on all of the doors.  No, we haven't resorted to duck taping his hands, but that's next on the list if he continues to escape!

Daddy has been really proud of his boy lately!  While Daddy is trying to teach Logan how to play football, scream touchdown, and do all the manly things they are supposed to do, Logan has had other plans.  Lately, he would rather play with Mommy's bracelets and necklaces.  Who doesn't love something shiny that clanks, especially when you can put it on your wrist and bang it together.  Can you blame him?  At least while he does it, he usually wears his very manly fireman boots.  Logan comes in from being somewhere and immediately goes to the boots, ripes off his tennis shoes and tries with all of his might to get the boots on.  Usually we have to come to the rescue to help him.  I think the problem is the boots are getting a little too tight.  Looks like new rain boots will have to go on Logan's Santa Wish List.
How cute is this?

We always joke when our dog Lilly is being annoying that she is "Logan's dog."  Well he must have heard this so much, he decided to take the responsibility upon himself.  He loves to go to her basket, take out her leash and have us put it on her.  Then, he pulls her along in the house, or she yanks him exactly where she wants to go.  He loves walking her, but I'm too afraid to let them try this act outside.  I have a feeling it would go like this.  Logan meet concrete.  Lilly meet freedom.


I am trying to get Logan jumping on video.  It might just be the cutest thing to date.  He helps me count while squatting down and popping up.  He doesn't actually make it off the ground, but he does do this little rock on his tip toes that he thinks is jumping.  I love it!  I'm on a mission to get this on video this weekend. 

Logan's current word count, I think is 11 words.  I am still a little worried about this, but I am going to wait a little longer before my typical unnecessary worrying.  (Yes, I know I worry too much sometimes)
His very clear words as of now are: toe, tree, two, apple, Mama, Dada, no, ni-ni, go, nose, eyes.

I could go on for hours about how perfect he is, but those things I mentioned above (vacuum, toilets, and homework) are calling me to come and pay them attention.  Here are a few more pictures:

A Little Caught Up!

Logan can now buckle himself into anything!  We are still working on the unbuckling part!

It Only Took Us 5 Years!

We live directly across from one of the most popular Corn Mazes in our town.  People come from all over to get lost in the huge corn maze.  Cagle's Dairy, not only has an amazing corn maze, but they also have a farm tour, hay rides, petting zoo, and of course, again, yummy fair food. 

I took Logan over the summer with a few friends to do the hayride and farm tour, but the corn maze wasn't available, so we were so excited to FINALLY have the chance to go on Saturday.  We've talked about walking over to do the corn maze for years.  It only took us 5 years.....

Logan kind of  didn't want to sit still to get his face painted, but after a struggle and me holding his head still, the doggie paw print looked pretty cute. 

and then, he rubbed it...

so, it looked like a big dirty patch on his face...

We headed over to try out luck in the corn maze...Logan was riding in style, while we were making circles trying to find our way out. 

Logan found some corn, and tried to eat it...YUCK!

Next, we tried the jumping pillow...still not very sure

Then, a tricycle, but his legs were a little too short

Logan showed us which pumpkin he liked best

He spent a little more time just looking cute

Checked out the chicks on the farm!  (and the chickens,too)

Telling everyone who will listen all about his fun day on the farm!

Fall Family Tradition

Sunday marked the beginning of a new Fall Sevin Family tradition.  We headed up to Hillcrest Orchards in North Georgia to pick apples and load up on apple goodies.  This orchard had it all.  Apple picking, tractor rides, petting zoo, slides, play grounds, and of course, yummy, so horrible, but so good fair food. 

We were smart to get there early.  By the time we left, the place was packed! 

Jumping on the big air pillow, but not too sure.

Climbing up to the big slide

Guess who's in charge?

A little scared of the goats!

"What's in there?"

Cousin Love (and choke hold!)

Squishing apples

Little Boy loves his corn!

We bought a ton of apples and I already made a big batch of baked apples.  Logan and I have been enjoying them with a little granola on top!  Yum!  Next recipes on tap are homemade applesauce and cinnamon apple biscuit pops! 
I can't wait to go back next year! 

The Too Busy for Quiet Events Phase

We strung Logan along to our good friends Ben and Kendra's wedding a few weekends ago.  While he was good, he is definately is the "I'm a toddler and can't sit still or be quiet for more than twenty seconds" phase.  He was so busy it was even hard to snap a few photos. 
He lasted for about an hour and a half and then he was DONE-ZO!  Logan and I headed home while Chris and his parents enjoyed a fun night celebrating with friends! 

This is my favorite picture!  Mimi and I were walking Logan through the garden and he found a friend.
