Dear Hunt week end was a blast-we had so much fun. The little girls could not stand it any longer :) I think you will agree they were all really good shoppers-but for me this was the best part of the day.


Pumpkin Patch

Ashlyn and I were able to go with neighbors to a local pumpkin patch. Ashlyn loved the hay maze and playing with the scare crows. And of course the trip would be incomplete without Ashlyn's sidekick Angie. As you can see she enjoyed the trip as well.

Pumkin Party

I love fall! I love the cooler weather, the changing leaves and pumpkins. So to celebrate the things I love we started hosting a pumpkin party each October. Tonight was our annual party, and the kids were as excited as I was to put it on. We've been preparing for it for weeks. Brinley helped me put up the tables and get ready this afternoon. It wore her right out-as you can see by the first picture :) The kids have some clever pumpkins, they're particularly proud of the pumpkin with the glasses. I personally loved my "mummy" pumpkin. The best part is that these pumpkins don't spoil-last year I finally took them down when we put up the Christmas decorations in Dec.

Ashlyn asked for some string last week. After watching her wrap the string around the bathroom door, the island in the kitchen, the dinner table and the coffee table; I asked her what she was doing. Her response was, "I am making an invention, The String 3000. It is to keep daddy in the bathroom forever." (I swear those are her words exactly!) I got a great laugh out of it and had to take some pictures. Ashlyn was completely happy with herself. So if anyone needs to keep their husband or daddy in the bathroom forever talk to Ashlyn and she will tell you how it is done.

A Potty Trained Brinely

She did it-she is no longer wearing diapers. She has been talking about using the potty for a while now and talking about the big girl panties she will get when she goes in the toilet. I just could not bring myself to do it. It is so easy to change a dirty diaper a few times a day than it is to worry about an accident at the school, church, in the car or at the store. Anyway it occurred to me last week that if I didn't take advantage of her enthusiasm it might be harder to do when I am ready. Luckily this week was pretty slow and we have been able to spend a little more time at home 'practicing'. She is 100% at night-knock on wood-with a few misses in the day. Mostly when she has been playing and forgets to come in. Anyway she is really excited, and after 7 straight years of changing diapers I am looking forward to the break!
