The Pumpkin Patch...



We went to the pumpkin patch this week.
It was just a wee bit nippy out, but fun none the less.
We ate hot dogs (much to Elijah's dismay) and bought fudge (much to his delight).  We fed the goats and bounced on huge bouncy pillows.  Then they began to rub tired eyes and it was time to go home.
We didn't buy our customary pumpkins yet, as we will do that after we move up north this Thursday.  After all it wouldn't be Halloween at our house without jack-o-lanterns.

In the Weeds...

Well, we close on that big, beautiful house next Friday.
David, the kiddies and I can't wait!
So, I am in the middle of getting things ready to go:
organized for the movers (cleaning out rooms, big bags of clothes and goodies to Goodwill).
making lists and lists.
posting things on Craig's List.
planning how we will "camp" in the house for 2 weeks or so without beds, furniture, or dishes.
making teacher thank you gifts.
registering for schools in our new town.
making Halloween costumes (a fairy, a mermaiden, a zombie, and a buzzy bee).
There are things that I am loving right now too:
My new, bright pink Nikes.  So comfy, so cute.
I uncovered an old Third Day CD...Offerings.  I am enjoying the songs again.
Skinny Cow Milk Chocolate Clusters.
The weather has been sweetly warm these last few days.  It has been nice as I know when we head North next week it will be chilly and soon snowy.
Knitting for Christmas has been fun as well.  I also have most of my gifts bought for the kiddies as well...so nice to be on top of that.
What are you loving right now?

Joy...



We are playing outside as much as possible these days.
After the hot, hot Summer it has been a treat.
Plus, playgrounds these days rock! 
Cushy rubber, rock climbing, swirly slides, and not a death contraption in sight = a mother's happiness (and the kiddies too of course).

First taste...



He tried solid food for the first time this week.
We rocked the bananas and I couldn't get it into his mouth fast enough.
He is in love.
Tonight we will give sweet potatos a whirl.

New Do and Newish Glasses...

Ok...so it might be hard to tell, but I went a little red recently and threw some bangs into the mix.  I'm kind of loving it.  And the glasses? They have a real 50s-60s vibe, (though the picture doesn't really show that well).
Just having fun really.
