The Great Pumpkin Carve!

 This year the girls got to carve their own pumpkins by themselves!
Great joy by our two first graders :)
They were well supervised by Daddy

 And they did a great job!

 Our pumpkins have since "melted" but we needed to get this fall tradition done before the kids spent time with family in Michigan!

A Girl's First Pumpkin!

 She had no idea we were at the pumpkin patch or that she "picked" this cute little pumpkin!
But it is officially her first fall and she gets to join in on all of the fun things!
Plus she looks so darn cute.
Fall looks great on her!

 First time standing alone.
She fell 20 second later!!

Happiest of Mondays y'all!

Miss Emma

She's sassy
She's six
She's done with piano and onto ballet and tap classes
She's desperately wanting to read chapter books (she's getting so close)
She's loving all of our social activities
She loves small group at church on Wednesday night! Last week her leaders threw a dress up tea party
She is a perfectionist, a pleaser and there is both good and bad to that
She adores her baby sister
She loves Jesus
She is teaching herself to walk on her hands
She spends hours on her bike every week
She's a snuggler and I need to do better to remember that and make time for that with just her
She has a wild side
She's a big ball of energy rolled into a small package

A Boy and His Frog

 The sweet little boy and his new pet!
He did school lessons with his pet and made him a nice home in my good Tupperware!
He couldn't come up with a good name but narrowed it down to the 4 ninja turtle names!
 We talked about treating the frog nicely and eventually talked about letting it go back to it's Momma
My rough and tumble boy was so sweet to the frog!
But I'm guessing it was still a long afternoon for the poor creature!

6 Months

 Happy sweet 6 months to Miss Adelaide!
You have been a complete joy to watch and you have learned so much this month.
You are rocking on your hands and knees, crawling backwards, trying to sit up from a crawling position! You want to be on the go with the other big people in your life.

You love when the bigs play rough with you. You are starting to LOVE peek-a-boo and all 4 of you will laugh life crazy! It's sweet moments for momma to watch.

 You have 2 brand new teeth!
You have started eating rice cereal with apple sauce in it. You find it yummy! Veggies are up next sweet girl! And Daddy can't wait to give you ice cream :)

 This month you have discovered the joys of napping and give momma at least 1, 2 1/2 hour nap per day. It is amazing what I can get done in 2 hours.
You recently painted your first pumpkin and had blue paint all over! It's amazing to think that at this time last year we were finding out you were a baby girl!
How fast time is moving with you in our lives.

I love you, you sweet Ladie!
