Pumpkin Patch

A few weeks ago we took our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. We had a good time feeding the animals, riding horses, riding a train, going on a hayride, swinging on the tire swing, going through the corn maze and of course looking for some pumpkins.

Prepare yourself for lots of pictures.

The Best

It's so nice when your daughter labels you the best!


I know that in her teenage years she might not have this same opinion anymore, so I will enjoy it while I can!


Oh and this is what she labeled Ken.



So if you ever doubted it... I am the best!

At least that's what Ella thinks.

Tea Party

Ella has been wanting to have her friend Emily over for a tea party. They were going to wear fancy clothes, eat fancy food and drink Grammy's famous tea.

Emily came and spent the night this week and they were finally able to have their tea party. They even let Olivia join them.

I think the cheese cubes and the mints were the favorite items...along with the tea of course.

Sweet Olivia???

Ella and Olivia have gotten into a sweet little habit of laying in Ella's bed together until they fall asleep. The other night when I went in to move Olivia to her room I saw this...


So sweet, right?

Well they aren't always so loving to each other. Tonight when Ken was saying prayers with them (in Ella's room) Ella was praying "Dear God please help Olivia not to be grouchy", Olivia chimed in "no, no tell me what to do Ella".

She is also known to say "no, no tell me be quiet Ella" and the ever so subtle "no, no tell me no no Ella"

Olivia may look all cute and innocent...











but don't let her fool you. That girl is giving us a run for our money!

The One That Wouldn't Let Go

Ella has had two very loose teeth for several weeks, but they just wouldn't come out. They were looking, well....awful. So bad that strangers would make a comment about them. I finally took a picture yesterday. They aren't the best because I used my phone, but you can see how silly they looked...




She has been trying to pull them out, she has even made several trips to see her old Kindergarten teacher (remember she is the best tooth puller), but they wouldn't come out.

Well, a minute after I took those pictures Ken pulled her over to him and was joking about yanking them out. Would you believe she said her mouth was bleeding and Ken looked and one of those teeth were laying on the floor. She had hit her mouth on a button on his shirt and made it fall out!




After that she kept trying to hit her mouth again to make the other one come out, but it just wouldn't let go!
