Beck was much more willing to be photographed, especially in this Buzz Lightyear cut-out. Beck is a huge Buzz fan. He has a beloved "Buzzyear" soft toy that he sleeps with every night, and he often requests to watch "Buzzyear" movies, which are his favorite,
So, the movers came three days ago. Boy is it nice to be sleeping on a real bed again! And the boys were in heaven opening all the boxes full of their toys. It was like every Christmas and birthday of their lives, combined! I am now drowning in empty boxes and packing paper, however. I can't believe how wasteful professional movers/packers are! When they showed up with our stuff, they had SEVEN crates on a huge flat-bed trailer, plus a medium-sized moving truck. Funny, we moved out there with all the same stuff in two 8'x12' moving cubes. The mystery was solved when I opened one fairly large sized box and dug and dug and dug through layer upon layer of packing paper, to find the box contained a single item: Tyson's old film camera I haven't seen him use since we were married. This was an extreme case, but there are many boxes that contain one or two items and a whole lot of packing paper. I guess packers get paid per box.
Tyson left yesterday for a week-long trip to the home office in Wisconsin. Perfect timing, right? I guess it's semi-fair, because I skipped out on all the moving and unpacking last time we moved into this house (Beck was born on our moving day). I hope Tys can get a little rest and relaxation without feeling buried by house projects the way he must feel here. We miss him, though! I especially wish he could have been here on Halloween to see the kids in their cute costumes.
Beck, the Fireman:
Sawyer, the Chef (his requested costume):
We went to a ward dinner/trick-or-treat activity in our bishop's cul-de-sac, then went to visit Grandma and Grandpa (Tyson's parents). I wanted to pull together a "waiter" costume for Beck, so they could be a matched pair, but I didn't get to it, if you can imagine that. I'm lucky I was able to move the boxes in front of the dress up dresser and locate the elements of the fireman costume. Beck approved. He loved his hat and kept flipping the face shield up and down. Cute boys!
We also celebrated Sawyer's birthday since I last posted, but I need to get some pictures off my mother-in-law's camera before I report on that. Sawyer is one sweet four-year-old!
