Twin Wolverines, Dexter's First Day, and a Little Something for LeeAnn

Ready For Hallowe'en !

The boys have been trying to decide which superheroes they want to be for Hallowe'en. AJ had pretty much narrowed it down to Green Lantern or Wolverine. Dexter liked Wolverine, Iron Man, Spiderman (which was a reversible costume that also became Venom). Long gone are the days that I can help them choose adorable stuffed fluffy costumes from Old Navy. Bring on the superheroes and robots and such. We checked out Party Bazaar (the new one Langley) and were a bit bummed about the quality of the costumes considering the prices. I know they're going to wear these all year long like last year's costumes, so I want to be sure they'll last. Then Richard wanted to show us the ones at Costco. The superhero costumes were WAY too big. Dexter did find an awesome knight costume, but once we got to the next costume store here in Abbotsford, this is what they came out with....

Maybe they miss being dressed in the same outfits?

Dexter's First Day of Preschool, Kind Of

Dexter started preschool when he turned 3, back after January. But it's started up again. Here he is on the open house day.

He's pretty stoked. Emerson, Jaxon, and Madisyn are in his class. And remember when I told you about the girl that AJ loves... Olivia? Well her little sister in Dexter's class and is just as adorable as Olivia. Who knows?!

This Part's for LeeAnn, But You Can Look Too If You'd Like

So, my friend LeeAnn over in Scotland who can be found here or here, asked me about AJ's lunches for the school year and if I could post some.

I'm sure I've posted to you before how much I love to make little bento lunches for preschool and days out. Jackie over at WeeLife is where my original inspiration came from.

Nothing fancy for tomorrow's lunch... no cheese in special shapes or anything, but...

A dinosaur shaped sandwich (turkey, cheese, mayo, mustard), celery and cheese -(with a skewer not pictured), carrots and dip (instead of fruit, as per AJ's request), and a little note from Mom (also not pictured). This will be AJ's first lunch he eats at school. I'm interested to see if he comes home with lots left since he's informed me that he is sitting next to one of his best friends, Josh.....lol, or if he comes home saying, "I need more food." After asking him about his day at school, he assured me that everyone in the whole class behaved well and that no one lied. (Apparently, according to AJ, that's the only thing that makes his teacher angry.)
Full day kindergarten tomorrow. My big boy will be gone from 8:50am - 2:38pm !!!!! Can you believe it? I can't. He's so excited. He's in disbelief that he gets to go to the playground twice in a day. He's so excited when I pick him up. So far, he loves his class. I think most of his excitement comes from having his friend, Josh, in the class.

Love the dinosaur shaped sandwich, Sonja! That must take some serious carving skills, lol.

It's a lunch-punch thingy. Like a cookie cutter. I use cookie cutters sometimes too.
