If only Hudson knew how to say cheese...

After a long day of flights where Hudson was a real trooper, he decided there were too many streetlights and red lights on the way to Aunt Barb's house. He put his "blankie" over his head and rode the entire device that way, falling asleep about 30 min prior to getting to her house. (easy transition to bed though:) )

Hudson had a great time but did request Buela next time. :)
It was so great to see him, and we had a cute conversation in the car on the way home:
Me: Daddy's going to go see cows and horses at the rodeo.
H: And sheep?
Me: Yes, there will probably be some sheep.
H: And I think some turtles and ducks.
Me: (not a word - just a mental note to remember stuff like this)

Hudson visited Cowboy Kringle today!
He told Santa that he was a good boy and won't cry. He wasn't too sure
about looking him in the eye, but had no qualms about sitting on his lap
and telling him what he wanted for Christmas. He "needed" Santa to bring a
race car and a black train.

For the last two weeks, Hudson has asked me about going for a ride in a bus every time we've seen one. Living in the central part of the city, between two elementary schools and UT, and walking distance from a primary street for CapMetro, you can't imagine how many buses we see in a typical day.
Well today after nap, we went to the corner bus stop and took the bus to the Children's Museum downtown. It had to be the biggest thrill that a dollar ever could buy.
Hudson finally got to ride a bus today to the Museum and he couldn't have been happier. The college kids chuckled as he made up a song about riding the bus. His face stayed pressed to the glass the whole way there. He waved to anyone sitting at each bus stop where we stopped along the way.
Hudson turned to me at the Children's Museum and said "I'm like Mike Mulligan and I have a lot of work to do" as he sat down on their excavator and began digging in their ball pit.

Here's a picture to brighten your day. Anyone who knows Hudson knows there's only one way to give a kiss... On the lips (be it a person or animal)! At the Seabrook "regatta," we were trying to get buddies Hudson and John to hug for a photo. Well Hudson decided to kick it up a notch and kiss John. Let's just say that John wasn't a willing participant! But he got so tickled that he didn't know what to do, causing Hudson to "go for it" even more! This picture captures the priceless moment, and I just love it. :)

I can't imagine why Hudson woke up early from his nap today. Do you think one of his buddies woke him up? When I cleaned out, I also found 14 cars under his blanket. You can never call Hudson a minimalist. :)
Or you can just go view them on Flickr:

There's never any concerns about sharing when you each have your own bulldozer.
The construction at Seabrook has been a huge hit and requires many trips to see the diggers, bulldozers, skid loaders, dump trucks and fork lifts.

Dee Dee clearly wasn't up on the finer points of "I'm going to get you," so when he yelled it to her, she ran and hid.
Hudson was so confused, as everyone knows that Hudson's version of "I'm going to get you" means for you to chase him.
We laughed for quite awhile over that one!

Hudson was excited to put on his backpack and head to school today. Without any prompting he actually had started asking about school and his classmates from last year just two weeks ago. He goes 3x per week this year. What a big boy. :)
I said to Hudson, that didn't make Mommy very happy that you climbed out of your crib. And he answered. Mommy, I sooo happy.
If he wasn't so cute, I don't know what I'd do with that little rascal!

On a recent trip to Dick's sporting goods, Hudson found the wall of batting helmets. He proceeded to wear it around the store.
Of course about 10 seconds after this picture, he picked up a bat and nearly took out the end cap display. :)

Caroline and Hudson bounced around on the Tumble Track where she takes gymnastics. His practice at the bounce house paid off, but he really studied her when she did flips. You could tell he was contemplating it, but just couldn't quite figure it out.

Hudson missed his nap today for maybe the second time in his life while we were flying to Branson. Then we got to go hear my brother play tonight, and Hudson was pretty tired. But luckily he had some nice cushy rocks to rest on while listening to the music!

Heading to dinner (yes, that's a little pre-dinner powdered sugar doughnut on his face - what's your point?). Hudson grabs like 9 cars to take. Helpful Truman tells him that's too many. Hudson replies pointedly, I want to take too many! (4 cars went.)

So this morning when he woke up I said, Hudson, did you dream about diggers?
He thought for a minute before saying...
Yes... AND GIRLS!
I nearly died, but loved it, because when he was a baby, I used to always ask if he dreamed of girl babies. Clearly, somewhere in the back of his brain, he remembered it.
We may have a little confusion from the Santa book Hudson continues to enjoy. When he sees a mounted deer head, he says, "Look a reindeer!" At least we have a few months to clear things up prior to Christmas season.
