We set up a tree and Orion helped to decorate it. We even have 2 tree toppers because he thought both of them were necessary. I'm definitely ok with that. I love watching him grow and learn. I love seeing him get excited for things like this. He is such an amazing little boy and it's a joy to get to share my traditions with him.

Orion started a new school right after Thanksgiving as well. It was a pretty major change for him, but he seems to be adjusting well. He is making new friends and seems to enjoy going. I'm hoping that everything continues to go smoothly.
Overall, things are going remarkably well. Orion can now write his name completely by himself. He spells it out loud as he writes "O is a circle, R is a line with a little hump, I is a line with a little dot, O is a circle, N is a line with a hump". It's adorable to watch and makes me so ridiculously proud of him.
So now, Christmas is right around the corner and for the first time ever we won't be able to go back to spend it with my family. Part of me is really disappointed, but I know that Orion will still have an amazing time. Aunt Jaime is going to be spending it with us. We'll just call it an adventure. Hopefully it is a fantastic one.
And I know you've all heard it before, but I am going to try to update things more regularly around here. I'm aiming for 2 posts a week right now....and I think I'll bring back Silent Sundays with just a photo as well. Hopefully setting some real goals will make this successful. *fingers crossed*

We became members of the forest in Omaha and they have a Dinosaur walk. He thought it was fantastic.
We messed around with dress-up and hats pretty frequently. It's more fun than it should be.
Orion has developed a love for going down town, especially visiting the river where he can see the geese and take pictures of them.
He also enjoys going to brunch with his daddy...
Aunt Jaime moved to town, so he's gotten to spend a lot of quality time with her. He seems to like having her around and I know I am super glad she's here!
We went to a wedding and Orion picked this outfit out for himself. He's such a handsome young boy. Minutes after this picture was taken he went to play with a dog and was covered in mud for the rest of the day.
We also got the chance to go see Bill Nye the Science Guy! Orion thought some of the stuff they did was awesome....mommy was also pretty impressed.
More giggles with Jaime...
We took him to the pumpkin patch to pick out his very own pumpkin.
Orion and daddy rode a trike together.
He loved climbing the hay and jumping off of it.
We took a hayrack right to the pumpkin patch
And Orion helped carve his very own pumpkin.
He also helped daddy style his hair.
For Halloween he decided to play super-hero again and was rocking Batman.

<p>Tonight was a great night. We went out to the park and then to the river to just spend some time outside.  We caught some toads, saw a snake chase a frog, and watched a blue heron flying a around. Orion loved seeing all the animals. It was a great night.

He was excited to go to school and see his friends at least. He was super well behaved this weekend and has been super good lately, which is a well appreciated change from the attitude he was starting to show off last week. Tonight, right before bed time, we curled up on the couch together and read some books. He laid on my chest like he always has and I quickly realized that my time to snuggle with him like that is severely limited. He's growing up so quickly. In 2 weeks he will be starting preschool. I am anxious for that change, but at the same time not looking forward to it....I am perfectly happy with a toddler. I'm not so sure that I'm ready for a preschooler. *sigh* Where has the time gone??

It's been a crazy busy day today do that combined with the fact that I forgot to bring my laptop makes blogging a pretty difficult task. We went to visit my mom today and O had a lot of fun playing outside and running around with his grandparents.
