Over our weekend at Disney, we got Grant a Lego truck set. He's graduating from the Duplo Legos to the regular ones. He did really well helping Nate put it together. He did even better taking it all apart at the end. :-)

He told us that the monster finger puppets at the bottom were people watching the construction. They had to stay behind the barricade.

So, apparently Grant was "twirling" in his room (spinning in circles) during his "nap" and had a major injury. Not exactly sure what part of his leg is hurting, but he doesn't want to walk on it. He CAN (which he proved when I said maybe we should go to the doctor), he just prefers to limp or be carried. So we'll see how it feels later. Anyway, I set him up on the couch with pillows and a blanket till he feels better and he asked for some toys.

Me: How about the hammer?
Grant: No, it's too hammery.
Me: How about the calipers?
Grant: No, they're too pinchy.
Me: What about the drill?
Grant: No, it's too twirly.
Me: Do you want this spaceship?
Grant: No, it's too big.
Me: This ball?
Grant: No, it's too dangerous! It's a floor toy.
Me: How about this truck?
Grant: Is it broken?
Me: Nevermind, just lay there and watch a video.
Grant: Why???

We had lots of fun on Halloween. Grant put on his pirate costume from last year when we went out to lunch. Later, he switched to his much beloved new bee costume and we headed to the mall for trick or treating. Since we've never gone trick or treating and Grant tends to get really scared of things, we decided we'd start at the mall. That way if he was scared in the neighborhood we could go home and he wouldn't miss out. He was really confused at the first couple of stores and tried to GIVE candy to the people handing it out. They thought it was so cute they both gave him an extra handful of candy! By the time we were done there, he was asking about going to houses. He ended up having a great time the whole night.

He LOVED his bee costume and kept wanting to look at his stinger in the mirror. After we got home, we let him eat whatever candy he wanted for a specified amount of time and he was in heaven.
