Daddy-Daughter Dance

Little miss Annabel has been looking forward to this event for probably 6 weeks! She has had her dress...just waiting in the closet. She had fancy shoes and tights. The night finally arrived and she was sooo excited. She woke up early from her afternoon nap and declared she was ready to take her bath and get ready for her dance. She was dressed and ready to go about 2 hours early. I can't blame her. I would have probably done the same thing.

Rand arrived with a little mini corsage and gave her a gift which had a matching purse and bracelet for her outfit. She just eats this stuff up. Sounds like they had a blast and she came home with more gifts from the event and am sure her heart is just filled up!

Not a lot to say about Halloween itself....seeing as it was nearly a month ago.
 It was dry. Always a bonus around these parts! :)

Kid Quotes:: Vol. 58

Uh-oh. Annabel is trying to phase out nap time....

During one of our afternoon nap time struggles

Me: (trying to shut the door and ask her as nicely as possibly to finally lay down and go to sleep)

Annabel: (yelling) It's not fair!!!  And it's dumb!!!!

she's 2

6 Jack-O-Lanterns

This might have been the first time we have ever carved pumpkins in the afternoon. It was the perfect time other than we had to wait to light them! The big boys carved their own from start to finish and Annabel and Easton got parental help, although someone (ahem Annabel) wanted to carve her own!

Pumpkin Patch::2014

It's been an interesting time for my family recently. Rand and I have been busy, busy, but feeling very blessed. Other members of my family have had the rug ripped out from under them and we have all rallied to hold them up and help carry them through some pretty hard stuff. Our annual Pumpkin Patch trip came in the middle of some really hard family stuff and now looking back, the pumpkin patch was like a short reprieve from it all.

This year it was fun to return to our old favorite Pumpkin Patch at Hunter Farms. We all hopped on the tractor wagon and rode out to the patch. Everyone was allowed to pick a pumpkin they could carry. We did hay mazes and corn mazes, checked out all the animals, and ate Olympic Mountain Ice Cream (best in the world). I'm still drooling when I think of my fall favorite, Pumpkin Praline. Mmmmmm

Pumpkin Carving Post to come!

Wyatt's Birthday Party in the Woods

To celebrate Wyatt's birthday with the rest of the family who could make it, we decided to have a little evening party in the woods. It's just more fun in the woods, assuming you don't mind really long gravel roads into the middle of nowhere and no bathroom facilities.
Knowing I didn't have enough time to do all the things I wanted to, I asked my friend, Kelly, to make a batch of cake pops (her specialty) for me. I told her my plan and that I was thinking camo or something woodsy and she suggested a s'mores theme. Perfect! Because we were going to have s'mores and a campfire anyway! :) They turned out awesome and were perfect for our party in the woods. I really can't wait until our house is out there! ....someday...Lord willing...

Wyatt thought his party in the woods was super and told me he felt really special, which was the whole point!
