Noah is quite the little helper around the house these days. Last night as Justin was cooking dinner he took it upon himself to go get the broom and sweep the floor! It was the cutest thing to watch. He'd sweep, then open the cabinet where the trash is stored and then dump the dust pan into the trash. Too bad my odds aren't that good for him doing this for the next 16-17 years!
Here's our little "sweeper":

His other fetish lately is the sprayer on the kitchen sink. I think he discovered it when he was helping his daddy use the mixer. He loves to play with it and unfortunately discovered how to turn the water on and spray it. Since that discovery, he'll run into the kitchen, yell "spray!" and try to drag the kitchen chair over to the sink. Luckily for us, the rug prevents him from reaching the sink on his own.
Here are some "spraying" pictures:
We had our folks over and our two brothers that live in the area and their families over for dinner last Saturday to celebrate me being done with my masters. My talented sister-in-law, Janis, made this lovely cake for the occasion:
Here are some pictures from dinner. We had intended to make homemade spaghetti and sauce with Italian sausage but neither of us felt up to the task of rolling out dough and cutting noodles. We've decided to save that for New Year's eve.
And here's a few more pictures of our little guy.
I don't know why Justin and I have bought him any presents, a 2-liter bottle would suffice nicely!
And here are the boys playing playdoh, one of Noah's favorite pass-times lately:
