Trip to the Pumpkin Patch...

One tradition that we try really hard to keep is making an annual trip to the Pumpkin Patch. We all have fun, and I love that it means that Halloween is around the corner!

This year...

We fed the goats...

Went on a Hayride...

Looked for the perfect pumpkin...

Rode a little green train...

An indication of a GOOD day...I would say so!!

My Little Pumpkin

I joined Reese's Preschool class to go to the Pumpkin Patch yesterday! Reese had a great time running around and looking at all of the pumpkins, and she got to pick one to take home! Very exciting!

Here are some pictures of my Little Pumpkin! Notice the last picture of her walking with her class...what a BIG girl!! I just love it that she doesn't cry anymore!

And the "attempt" to get a group picture! Maybe next time!!

Walking to the playground with her class!

Kick it!

Ashton had her 1st soccer practice and game last week! I have to say...I was very surprised that she wanted to play soccer again. We had a Dad on her last team that was entirely too serious about "the game", and he intimidated her when he yelled at her to "Get the Ball, Ashton!" I missed her 1st game because I was out of town. I was really hoping for some pictures to share, but Johnny forgot the camera! I really wanted to see pictures of the pigtails that he put in Ashton's hair too! Oh well. I will just take pictures this week. Anyways, she played very well in the game on Saturday and had a lot of fun too! That is good. That IS what sports are supposed to be about at this age since they don't even keep score yet.

Go Wildcats!!

New do

I have been wondering what Reese would look like with straight hair. So, I tried it out last week, and this was about as straight as I could get it! It was so funny. She was walking around flipping her hair and saying that she was a rock star! I guess it felt very different since it was so much longer when it was straight! It was fun to play, but I LOVE her curls!!

I can't quite get back on track after my fun weekend getaway! It isn't like we partied or went out drinking. I didn't sleep well the night before I left, and then I had to get up at 5 am to get ready for my flight that morning. Then, we also had to get up at 5 to head to Round Top on Saturday morning. We were some TRUE shoppers getting up that early. Shopping from 9 to 5. Traveling. I guess that is what did it to me.

So, I head to pick Ashton up from school on Monday afternoon, and we are all standing around talking and waiting for school to get out. One of the Moms says something about "I wonder how pictures went today?". WHAT? WHAT PICTURES? Yep. I messed up and completely didn't even know that it was picture day (which is so not like me)!

So, Ashton had her Princess shirt on with some sweat-type shorts and pigtails. Hmmmm. I guess we will be doing make-ups next month! Way to go, Mom!

I do it myself!

Reese was trying to take her pj's off to get dressed the other day, and she wouldn't let me help her at all. She said "I do it myself!". Little Miss Independent! I think that is so funny because my Mom tells stories of me saying that when I was little! I couldn't resist taking some pictures of her trying SO HARD to get the darn pj's off! FINALLY, she did it!
