We have had three trips to pumpkin patches this year, one with family and then both of the girls had field trips. All three were alot of fun and we have ALOT of pumpkins at our house. We have all colors, shapes and sizes of pumpkins and I have no idea what I'm going to do with all of them! I love this time of the year, especially when the weather is as beautiful as it has been. I could deal with 65-70 degrees everyday! Here are lots of pictures from our fall pumpkin patch trips:

Pumpkin Painting with Libby

has become a fall tradition at our house. This year we decided it would be fun to include Reagan, who just turned one. It was her first experience painting and she thought it tasted really good! I helped Reagan get the paint onto her brush but she put the paint onto the pumpkin all by herself. Molly and Sadie had a blast watching Reagan, they love that she is big enough to do things like this with them.

I can get so caught up in my own menial struggles sometimes that I am unable to see how great I really have it. Yes, I had a hard day with the kids on Monday. But, a friend of mine has recieved life threatening diagnoses for TWO of her immediate family members. My life is wonderful and I feel very selfish for my previous post. My kids can be difficult and days can be hard, but I have no idea what a really hard day is like. I have a better perspective on my life today. Now I'm going to pray for my friend. . .

Some days just stink. . .

and yesterday was one of those days. From the moment everyone got up in the morning, it was tough. Whining, arguing, backtalking--all the fun stuff, they did it. I couldn't seem to get them under control AT ALL. I'll spare you all the ugly details, but there was one funny (and also frustrating) part of the day that I have to share. Sadie was playing with clay at the kitchen table and managed to get a huge piece of it stuck in her hair, so being the bloggy Mommy that I am, I had to take a picture. . . .

You do need to know that she was screaming hysterically about the clay until I pulled out the camera. Maybe that should be my new form of discipline--you better behave or I'll take a picture of you!!! Whatcha think?

Reagan turns one

When we lived in Atlanta, Kasey and Josh very graciously hosted both of the girls second birthday parties. We offered our house for Reagan's first and had such a sweet little party. We had the perfect number of guests (all family) and everyone had a great time!

The theme of the party was gumball machines

Her adorable outfit that Granna made to go with her theme (actually I think the outfit determined the theme)

SOOOOOOOOO tired. . . .

Reagan also has some big news! She's going to be a big sister on April 15th. The due date is quite ironic since Kasey is an accountant and needs to work through tax season!! Kasey and Josh are as crazy we are to have two babies 17 months apart (apparently they weren't paying attention when Molly and Sadie were babies :-).
