Pumpkinville 2008

Today the boys and I decided to head out to the nearby animal park. To our surprise they transformed their park into Pumpkinville 2008! There were tons of slides, moon bounces, and other fall themed activities. With paid admission we each received an apple from the orchard, hot apple cider, and we were able to pick a pumpkin from their patch. Not bad for $24!

This was a real turtle shell. Cole got a big kick out of it.

Of course we had to pet every animal.

I don't know what was crazier, the height of this slide or the trek up the huge hill to get to it! The photos don't do it any justice.

Happy Fall Ya'll

It's been a busy week or so at our house so I haven't really had the chance to post much. Last weekend was Aunt Ruthie's big Fall Party. Unfortunately we were so busy keeping track of our little ones we didn't get a many pictures as we would have liked.

We also decided to attempt making Carmel apples with the boys this year. I was pleasantly surprised what a great job they did. They really had a great time.

A little bit of this, A little bit of that

What a week! Poor Todd has been sick for most of it and bless his heart has gone to work almost everyday. We really haven't been up to much this week. Which actually has been good. I've been able to get a lot done. I finally organized my craft cabinet! (Mom I know you're proud!)

I've also been working on a sewing project that I'm really proud of. I bought this really great book, Sew Pretty Homestyle. I decided to make a purse and let me tell you it was so much fun! I've sewn curtains before and hated every minute of it. I figured out why...too much fabric to work with. Small projects are definitely my thing. I'll share the pictures but be kind :) it's my first purse.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend filled with fun and blessings from above!

Muffins and a Little Bit of Fussin'

In our attempts to save money I decided to bake muffins this morning. I thought they would be perfect for Todd's breakfast instead of having to buy breakfast at work. I found this awesome recipe in one of my very favorite Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks.

The boys were doing a great job helping until they were bored with the activity. Payton declared that he was "going to get ready for school". So while I finished up in the kitchen I heard some fussing by the front door...

Bless his heart! He was so upset because his baby (aerial) was too heavy for him to carry. I just had to take a one would have believed what he did to that poor dog.
