SpOOKy Spiders

Look out for the SpOOKy spiders in our house!! 
Luckily they are the super cute kind and fun to make!



punkin' paintin'

After we picked up our mini pumpkins at Greenbluff we did a little painting on them.  Chloe loved painting them and also gluing googly eyes on one of them.  Mr. eye spy pumpkin is our favorite!

Glitter SLIME

I saw THIS idea on pinterest to make Glitter Slime and thought it would be a really fun Halloween activity.  The fun lasted for about 10 minutes and it didn't turn out exactly as I had thought it would. Bummer:(  I thought we followed the directions but it hardened and pretty much I threw it all away when Chloe was done playing.  Fun while it lasted but we won't be making this again.

Last Friday, October 12th, we went on our annual trip up to Greenbluff!  Nana and Poppy joined us.  We all went to lunch and then headed up the hill.  We stopped at Harvest House first for our annual "How Tall This Fall?" picture.  As you can see Chloe is a growing girl!  While there we had to get some of their famous pumpkin donuts - YUM! After that we went to Knapp's where we always like to get our pumpkins and watch the punkin' chunkin'.  It was a very fun fall day at Greenbluff!

Pumpkin Patch

Last Wednesday, October 10th, Grandma had an infusion appointment in Spokane.  Afterwards she, Chloe and I met Natalie and babies at a pumpkin patch in Airway Heights.  I have been seeing it as we drive through on our way to Spokane, but it was even more fun than I had imagined!  The kiddos had so much fun!  Chloe loved the bouncy houses and the little petting zoo.  The pumpkins were huge and we brought 3 home.  It was a great afternoon spent with some of my favorite people!!  SO happy that Grandma has gotten stronger and was able to be with us this day!

28 weeks

28 weeks and in my third trimester!!  Here I am with my dear friend, Addie - we are only about 1 1/2 weeks apart.  Not only have we been friends since preschool but now we are having babies together.  I love how we have been able to do mommy and me swim lessons and soccertots with our kiddos and look forward to many more fun memories when the new babies arrive! Add - You are one of the BEST mommies I know and Trey and Elle are SO LUCKY to call you there's!  Love ya!

Happy Birthday!

On September 21st the triplets, Opal, Scarlett and Isaac turned 1!!!  It is hard to believe since it feels like just yesterday I was at the hospital with their momma right after they all came out of her tummy.  And SO tiny!  They are all growing very fast and it's amazing to watch as they all crawl and pull themselves up now.  I am blessed to be their auntie - I just ADORE them!  The following Saturday we celebrated their birthday.  Natalie and Andy had a party at their house and it was a very fun celebration with lots of friends and family.  The triplets were happy and smiley all afternoon and as we sang "Happy Birthday" to them they played the piano - it was ADORABLE!
