Finally, the actual day of Halloween is here. Somehow, I managed to keep my costume clean this week. Miles came over for a little Trick or Treat. The Trick was actually keeping us on this chair long enough to snap a pic. And, of course, the pic itself is the treat.

Here's a sneak peek of my Halloween costume. Let's hope this elephant ain't afraid of it's shadow (or reflection)!
Mommy's tan is faded but we still look like Ivory and Ebony. Me, even more so today.
Looks like no-one else got the memo that Bubbles class today was supposed to be dress up. Oh well, I'll just rock out with my trunk out.
Denny and Jave came over for dinner tonight. Mommy prepared a freshly made Chinese menu.
Dave was making me crazy, cradling me between his feet and not letting me have his blackberry or his beer! Forget waterboarding, the army should try this torture technique!

Today we hit up one of the parks near Grandma and Grandpa's house. Adam was a bit unclear on how the teeeter-totter worked.
Grandma rode the dinosaur with me. I'd been really missing them ever since I got my cast off.
I had fun playing house.
This house ain't big enough for the 2 of us! No, really, Daddy. It ain't. Get out before you break it!
Sorry, no solicitors!
My new Facebook profile pic. That really is a great camera, Adam!
Adam chased me around for a while.
It didn't end well.

One of my favorite things to do at Grandma and Grandpa's is laze around the house. OK, not really. That's really Mommy and Daddy's favorite thing to do in Athens. (Which, btw, is how they chose to spend their 5th wedding anniversary today. Boy, they really know how to party!) I, on the other hand, have to be constantly entertained. Thankfully, Emmy's boyfriend Adam was up to the task, letting me play with his fancy camera.
Then Grandpa took over as he went to town on the blocks (literally, he created a town) and Gracie and I took turns knocking everything down.
My real favorite pastime is eating. And Auntie Emmy kept me well-satiated, er... sugared.
Luckily Daddy was occupied on his laptop, otherwise he would've put a stop to this. And by that, I mean he would've just told Emmy to give me the whole cookie!
There better be more where that came from!

We flew into Columbus today to meet up with the Nehrenz gang -- Geoff, Janelle, Grant, Gabrielle, and Julia. It was so great to see them again (and meet the rest of the clan). We played at the mall and went to Cheesecake Factory for lunch. We stopped to take a picture afterward but Gabby and I teamed up to thwart it. Not sure why Nel and Mommy posing for their own picture there in the corner.
As Tyra would say on America's Next Top Model, we worked it out and came back with this fierce shot.
Gabby let us know when it was time to go.
I'm getting sick of that Heene kid getting all the attention. So I had Auntie Em get me a balloon of my own.
From that point out, I didn't let that balloon out of my grasp.
Until we got to Grandma and Grandpa's, that is. Thankfully, they have low ceilings.

Met up with Cousin Rachel today and went for a bite at Toast... a bite of crayon that is!
I was tempted to order the muffin tops.
(I'm bad, I know.)
Afterward, we walked off the meal.
I had to be prodded along though as food coma began to set in.

No, I'm not getting into car racing. IRL is web lingo for In Real Life. And this was an IRL encounter with one of Mommy's friends from the Baby Center board, Elizabeth, and her son, Camden. It didn't take long for us to get comfortable swinging together!
Camden is a little more well-versed in the art of the pose.
I showed Camden my blurry face.
Then Camden showed me his surprised face.
After the park, we went to this cool new place in Roscoe Village called Family Grounds Cafe. They have a playroom for kids to run around while Joe Mamma sips coffee.
We got in one parting shot before melt-down ensued. See you on the board!

For the second year in a row, we went to County Line Orchard in Hobart, IN for some apple picking and assorted fall-ery. Just like last year, I dove into the pumpkin box to give daddy some slideshow fodder. This time around though, I filled up the frame a bit more.
In the orchard, Mommy and I searched high and low (well, I mostly searched low) for the best apples. Our favorite is honey crisp.
I couldn't wait to sample the merchandise.
I wonder what the return policy is here?
Oh well, I guess I'm stuck with it.
After working up an appetite, we went over to the petting zoo. Not sure why I was so scared of this goat. I should be used to overgrown soul-patches by now.
I'm well-versed on how to operate John Deere equipment thanks to the Hannukah present Grandma and Grandpa gave me last year.
Daddy and I had fun horsing around.
Don't make any hay-sty moves with that arm Mommy!
Why is it so hard to tell the locals from the livestock around here?
