I'm Back!

At long last I return to blogging, not because I haven't wanted to be here, but it's been a while since I've gotten to use the computer. So all my great and wonderful friends if you thought I was gone. I'm not, we have returned. Here is the quick version of what we have been doing over the last month. But the best thing that happened to us is that we finally finished harvest. Yeah!!!!! We are so blessed and grateful. Enjoy these cute pics of my family

My little son is all boy and not just a boy but one who follows in his Daddy's footsteps. One morning after Thad had left for harvest Ethan came to me wearing his Dad's hat and carrying his water jug saying "I go work." It was adorable. This little guy sure does love farming, tractors and trucks.


My kids finally accomplished the impossible......We made sugar cookies. I'm not very good when it comes to baking with my kids. So this was a big hit with them. Papa and Grammie liked it to when they got their special delivery.



One of our favorite games is "Don't Eat Pete". Ethan has just caught on to how the game works and loves it. For anyone who's never heard of this game give me a ring all it takes is a piece of paper and any small bite size candy. We use M&M's, chocolate chips, or skittles. It is great family bonding time.







Halloween is a favorite around our house. The kids love to dress up and I love to eat their candy. :) All in all we make a great team. This year Kaitlyn was a Southern Belle and Ethan was a cowboy. They both had a blast and I definatly am a fan of the trunk or treating vs. house to house.




Winter is definatly interesting when it comes in the middle of October. Of course my kids were thrilled when their Papa called and gave mom the guilt trip so after the 20 minutes to get them all dressed and ready, they went out and played for 5 minutes and were done. But they sure loved it and they really love Papa. Thanks dad your a great Grandpa. They also liked trying to catch snowfalkes with their mouths.




The pumpkin patch has always been a big deal for my kids and they like it even more when their cousins come along.

Hey Brigitte! Ok so I don't have my own blog, but I came across yours through Kami's. You'll have to show me that game. I'm always looking for something fun and different to do!
