Pumpkin Patch

While I was sitting and doing parent-teacher conferences, TJ took off the day to go with Sophia's preschool to Hunter Farms Pumpkin Patch. I'm not jealous or anything...
Starting the pumpkin adventure with a friend and the famous signs.
Apparently Sophia did not like the dark slide through the hay. Her teacher Ms. Shelby got her up there and gave her a little push down, hahaha. Check out that face!
She searched for a pumpkin and found the one she wanted....A nice green one!

The tractor ride was much better than the slide. Sophia is with some of her preschool friends:)

I think the pumpkin in the middle is the cutest:)
This is when I got to join the fun...We carved tonight. Sophia scooped out the pumpkin guts all by herself with a spoon, but would not reach her hand in and touch the guts.
Lots of pumpkin seeds coming out (don't mind my lovely outfit...the comfy clothes went on right after work).
Daddy helped carve the eyes, but Sophia wanted a baseball pumpkin, so she decided on a W pumpkin with a pink balloon as the bubble.
Here they are! My ghost that says "Boo!" didn't turn out that great, but oh well. I love the tiny yellow pumpkin Sophia picked out too. She was quite pleased with them all, but wanted hers back inside so she could look at it.

A Pro

We're getting use out of baby brother's clothes already. Sophia's baby needed a jacket! I think Sophia is going to be a pro at holding her little brother...Look at her form:)

Slumber Party

This is one happy girl!
She has been wanting to have a sleep-0ver for awhile, so we invited her 2 of her cousins over so their mom could have a night out. A couple days before the slumber party Sophia asked if she had to sleep in her bed. I asked her where else she would sleep. She said she wanted to sleep on the blow up mattress and have Tyler and Lauren bring theirs so she could line them up in a row. She is too smart! She knows how sleepovers should go!

Ta-da! There they are all in a row!

Sneak Peak to Halloween

Sophia is one that likes things explained and not just sprung on her, so we've been talking about her Halloween costume for about a month. I had her look online with me to see what she was interested in. Every costume we saw, she said, "No, I don't like it..." UNTIL she saw a fairy and a butterfly costume, so is the very cute butterfly fairy! The costume is simple and perfect for her (even her new rain boots are butterflies:)
On Friday we went to our church Halloween party to try out the costume. On Halloween night I'll add make-up and other stuff, but it was a good test run. She wasn't too sure of all the games, but she liked throwing the rings, dropping a golf ball down a peg board, and her favorite was the cake walk. We got like 4 cupcakes!
The finale was TJ and Derek trying to fit the whole donut in their mouth. TJ inhaled the powder which was quite entertaining. I would say Derek was the winner!

1st Haircut

A couple weeks ago, Sophia had her first haircut. I had my turn first, then she had a turn. She got to wear a cute apron with animals on it and hold a baby dressed up like a bunny.
She was a good listener and looked at her toes when she was asked to.
Daddy was there to ensure that I didn't go wild on her hair, haha. She got like a 1/2 inch trimmed off, so you can't even tell, but at least her ends are healthy now...
