Christmas in the Heights

We love our neighborhood and all the fun that it brings. This past Sunday we got to enjoy all the shops, Christmas goodies, and a ride with Santa in a horse drawn carriage. It was a bit early in the season, but fun regardless. Hannah and Caroline had no problem sitting next to him...Emily had a few reservations about Santa and stuck with me across from him. It was a very pleasant day- high 60's and we were discussing the weather with Santa. Caroline listened to what we were saying and offered her two cents to Santa- "you shouldn't sleep in your big red suit at night or you might get really sweaty." Always considerate, and always worried about being hot. After our ride we walked around to a florist and they were given free roses:)

This is what carving a pumpkin with stair step girls looks like:) 
Caroline named hers "Spookally". Emily and Hannah ran off before we finished them and didn't feel obliged to name theirs;)

Fall fun!!

October has flown by! So much fun was packed into one month- it's been fun but no -stop! A trip to Atlanta, a few birthdays, a family trip to Big Cedar Lodge, and Fall festivities/Halloween. Whew. Here are some pictures...

Hannah Baby turns 2!

Sweet Hannah isn't quite a baby anymore. She is a full fledged talking, running, energetic preschooler. Sweet girl has such a perfect place in our family and such fun relationships with each one of us. She adores her daddy, looks up to Caroline for help and assistance, and loves playing silly with Emily. I am so excited to continue to watch her grow and change into the little girl God has designed her to be. We are so very blessed by this 2 year old.

She is full of energy- exactly like her sisters. She loves her sisters, Elmo (Abby in Wonderland is a fave right now), YoGabbaGabba, swinging, wearing everyones shoes, wearing her sisters swimsuits all day long, playing tickle monster, sucking her 2 fingers...with a finger in the nose sometimes, Sesame look and find books, milk, everykind of fruit and most veggies- but not much meat, dancing with her daddy in the evenings, driving daddys car, and snuggling with her mommy. She really wants to be able to hold up 2 fingers as she tells us she is 2 years old. She is getting there.

Some stats: She is in size 6 diapers- although she is starting to want to potty. We've had a few potty successes, but I'm honestly not ready yet. She wears size 9 shoes, 3T clothes, and is very tall for a 2 year old. We go for her 2 year well child check up next week and we will find out her weight/height percentiles.

We love you sweet baby girl. Crazy how quickly time is flying. No more babies in this house. An odd feeling, but of so sweet. Let the fun continue!!

Pumpkin Patch

We took a field trip with Caroline's church preschool class to the pumpkin patch. My mom and Brad were actually able to join us for the fun. Caroline and Emily loved jumping, rolling, and swimming in a huge corn pit...they were filthy dirty but a lot of fun was had. We saw some animals, took a tractor hayride, climbed hay bale towers, picked our own pumpkins and had a picnic lunch. It was a great day and we had three tired little girls when the day was over.

The girls

Just a few random pictures:)
