Jalen had cooking yesterday. The theme this week was Halloween Treats and he got to wear his costume to class. They made Mummy Toes (hot dogs wrapped in a tortilla with ketchup), Witches Brooms (pretzels wrapped with fruit roll-ups), and Eyeballs (dyed pudding, lifesaver, and jellybean frozen). He loved it and enjoys every cooking class.
Wear your costume to class!
Loves to participate!

Jalen and I carved a pumpkin the beginning of this month and it didn't take long for it to rot away! We'd bought two pumpkins that day and we didn't realize this one didn't stand up straight. When we were at Target we found Yoda so we turned the pumpkin into Yoda! This is the 'new' carving way. They have so many of these characters. Funny because Brooklyn had one and so did Ry!
Jalen has been enjoying the cooler weather. We went to the park the other night and he went all the way across the monkey bars! I was so amazed and I think he was too. It is crazy how big he is getting! He talks non-stop. We say he inherited that from his Ki!

After soccer on Saturday, Jalen wanted to go eat. We decided to go to El Dorado, which was absolutely disgusting, but that is beside the point. At Learning Express, they had Elmo. We stopped by and got a picture with him. Where his mouth is, is the screen for the person to breathe through, but the person was quite short and you could see their whole head. After we walked away, Jalen said "that Elmo was a fake. Where's the real Elmo? Are all of them fakes?" Because I didn't want to ruin his childhood, I said it was a fake, but the real one lives on Sesame Street and the other real characters are in Disney World.

Jalen had soccer yesterday morning and did great. He is really getting into it. Last year when they would call water break we couldn't get him to leave to go back to play some more, this year we can't even get him to drink water! He's developing so much and becoming such a big boy. So proud of him.

Jalen went to cooking class and, yet again, had a blast. He loves to cook and I am so proud that he tried the egg rolls with cabbage! He enjoyed chopping the veggies and sauté them. Next Saturday we go to the Halloween treats class!

When I got home from work tonight, Jalen had remembered that I said we'd decorate for Halloween tonight. So we went to Trader Joe's and got some pumpkins! We got 2 big ones, 2 little white ones, 2 little orange ones, and two medium white ones. Jalen didn't like getting the guts out too much. He said it was 'slimey' and 'disgusting.' He used a spoon and got as much out as he could. He drew the face and I attempted to carve it out. J'ster J was born! Jalen named his pumpkin and enjoys talking to him.
