Oops forgot to mention earlier

John has uploaded the wedding footage. And if you haven't see the photos they are here.

A Legal child and a bat baby in training

So on Friday we went and reregistered Nathan so he is boringly legal now... Afterwards we headed to the shops to take something back and then as we were so near headed to Mum's to pick up my coat which had my camera in the pocket. The boys was now STARVING so we all decamped to the Grantley for lunch. Nathan was a bit stroppy (he had missed his nap afterall) but didn't kick up too much of a stink when he found the fishy whales he order were actually fishy rockets.

To make up for his bad behaviour he blew kisses a lot
something that grandad can also do

Asterwards we headed homewards via the supermarket to buy some pumpkins but could only find really little ones. Nathan can now easily sit in the trolleys but his feet are more fascinating than shopping...

Today after lunch Nate and I packed trick or treat bags (his help was invalueable). (yes the father christmas in the background is still there from last year - we aren't that organised)
His cold is still niggling so, we had planned to carve pumpkins with him letting play with the gucky innards but he had a second nap instead and was much better for it but we carved them for him (John did Nates) and a damned fine job we did too! Just as we finished Nate woke up and was very impressed with our efforts
Is there anything more threatening than pumpkins on wheelie bins?

In appreciation he got all dressed up!
