Halloween superman style

This year Carson was Superman for Halloween. I can not believe how much a mask can change a persons personality. Carson was playing nicely with his castle and trucks however as soon as I said lets put your mask on... Superman Carson was in the house. He was jumping, rolling all over and talking in a real deep voice. He was in complete character. Lol. Jonathan and I escorted Carson to a few houses but he was waiting for 'Best' my sister to take him around the neighborhood. For the past four years Best has taken Carson out trick or treating. Once again, he came back with a bag filled with candy and many funny stories. Thanks Best for making it another fun Halloween.

Wait what was he? not superman...silly, Carson was spiderman. Thanks to my blog buddies for correcting me. lol

I am a puppy dog

Tonight Carson crawled around the house for hours pretending he was a puppy dog. He told me he was kyndel's (my dog) brother. Carson was trying to convince me that he had to sleep in kyndels bed tonight because she was afraid of ghosts. Kyndel and Carson have a love hate relationship. Kyndel is extremely protected of Carson however extremely jealous of him as well. Carson loves kyndel as long as she is doing what he says.

Carving contest and help needed

Almost everything we did this weekend involved something with pumpkins. Saturday we went to Cold Spring Village in Cape May for their 19th annual harvest fest. We all had a good time walking around the festival, going on hay ride, and coloring pumpkins. After the harvest fest we went to pick out pumpkins for our annual pumpkin carving contest at my Aunt Sandy's. We enjoyed a very good dinner at my Aunt Sandy's with our cousins. After dinner the contest began... Everyone picks out a different pattern from the pumpkin carving art set. The patterns range from very simple (which I usually do) to extremely hard. The judge (my cousin Bobby) looks inside of your pumpkin. It must be smooth, no seeds, pumpkin strings, etc. So after we are done carving the pumpkins we sit them outside on the porch with a candle inside and the judging begins. I usually go outside for a few minutes however it makes me too nervous while Bobby is judging so I normally go back inside. This years winner was Shauna..... My cousin Joanne is going to forward me a few photos as my camera died Saturday morning. UH!!!
Sunday after church we went to watch Matthew (Carson calls him Mac) our cousin play hockey. I was highly impressed! After the hockey game I took a well needed afternoon nap.
Needing some serious help.... Carson is potty trained with number 1. However he still does number 2 in his underwear. Its a serious problem not just at home in school too. Carson is a very gifted boy (testing has shown)
-Sitting on the potty is a struggle. We read on the potty, sing, etc. He cries and screams.
-We watch Elmo potty training (all the time).
-We have brand new lego sets sitting on the table. If he goes number 2 on the potty he can have a new lego set.
-We have the reward chart on the refrig.
-He sits on he potty at least every 2 hours.
-We talk about pooping all the time. (yuck)
-We have talked about putting diapers back on him like babies. He screams so loud and cries.
- We give him stool softeners in his juice. He will take one sip of the juice and says this is gross. You try it.
Any ideas..... We need prayer!!

40th anniversary and sesame place

Saturday we traveled to Sesame Place for the day. Carson loved every single part of the theme park. He watched all the short shows, loved the rides and his favorite part was the rope climbing play area (wait- I think Jonathan loved the rope climbing play area more). Well, due to the great offer we became season ticket holders for 2010-2011 to sesame place. I am sure we will be making the trip again in the very near future.
Sunday was a busy but beautiful day. On 10/10/10 my parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. Tracey, Joey and I got them a 42 inch LG flat screen TV for their living room. The celebration continued Monday night as we took them out to Ruth Chris Steak House for dinner in Atlantic City. We all had a great time laughing and telling funny stories. The food and serve at Ruth Chris was great! I am sure we will visit again.

On the way home from the barn the other night Carson was talking about the cows and their butters. Jonathan and I just looked at each other and said, butters. What the heck is he talking about? Then Shauna says, Carson do you mean utters? Carson replied, Yea, utters you know the things that milk comes from. HAHA!

melting pot and monster trucks

Well, this is the weekend Carson has been waiting for. Best (My sister Tracey) and Carson went to see the monster truck show on the beach in Wildwood on Saturday night. They left our home around 4pm and Best said they did not arrive back to her home until 11:00pm. Wow, that is a long evening with a four year old however Best said Carson was great and loved it. He must have as he talked about it all day. Thanks Best for spending a special day with Carson.
Anyway, with Carson out for the evening Jonathan and I decided to drive into Atlantic City for dinner. We both have wanted to try the Melting Pot for dinner put could never find the right time. So needless to say, Saturday night was it... The atmosphere was nice the service was good however I was not a fan of the food nor the procedure of cooking (marinating) the food in the pot. I am pretty sure that will be the last time I visit the melting pot.

How inhumane

1 October 2010 Last updated at 22:13 ET Help The president of Guatemala has said the US committed a serious crime when it deliberately infected hundreds of Guatemalans with gonorrhoea and syphilis.
Speaking through a translator, Alvaro Colom told the BBC that he and his country were ''very angry''.
US President Barack Obama has apologised for the medical tests, in which mentally ill patients and prisoners were infected without their consent.

October 1, 2010 Robert Siegel talks with Susan Reverby, professor of women's studies at Wellesley College, about her discovery of a medical experiment conducted by U.S. government scientists in Guatemala in the 1940s. Reverby found that public health officials infected close to 700 Guatemalans with syphilis to see whether the disease could be prevented by penicillin. Reverby came across evidence of the experiment while researching the Tuskegee study.
