Pumpkin Patch 2009

We made our yearly trek to the pumpkin patch. Bobby took lots of pics. You can see that Eli was determined to be a clown! After looking at the pumpkins they had for sale and the few they had in the patch, we decided to get in the car and head to Publix. They had a lot bigger pumpkins that were a lot cheaper! The kids still had fun looking at everything and playing on the playground.

Eli's Community Helper Day

Eli has been studying community helpers at school and on Thursday got to dress-up as his favorite community helper. I went threw out a list of all the helpers I could think of and he decided on being a "Cooker Man." He loves to help me with a recipe in the kitchen so he already had his own special spatula. We borrowed an apron from Grandpa and I found a hat at Michael's. He was so excited to get to wear all of his stuff to school. He asked every morning for a week if it was Community Helper day yet.

50's Day/Football Day

The kids both had special dress up days on the same day. First the boys had 50's day to celebrate the 50th day of school. The dressed in their best 50's attire and learned a little of what it was like in the 50's. They listened to 50's music, ate french fries, had coke floats, had a visit from Zero the Hero, and hula-hooped. They really had a good time and looked cute too! The girls were having Football Day at school. They had been studying the letter Ff and so they all had to dress up in their favorite football team. It was very hard for me to let both of the girls go in Georgia Bulldog attire but it was late notice and too hard to get something OU for them. They know Boomer Sooner when they hear it and even tell people we know that are Sooner fans, "Boomer" on a regular basis.

Daddy Comes Home #2

Sorry it has been so long since I updated the blog but it has been really busy around here this month. To start the month, Daddy came home again! The kids were so excited to go and pick him up. He had a surprise for them! He brought home real lobsters from Maine where they fly into and process back into the states! The kids thought they were really cool when they were alive but didn't so much like the taste of them!

Georgia National Fair 2009

We visited the Georgia National Fair while the kids were out of school for Fall Break. They had so much fun looking at all the animals and seeing all the sights. They could not wait for the Circus but about 15 minutes into the circus the girls fell asleep! We saw and touched lots of animals. Caroline really wanted to see the pigs but unfortunately they were not there the week we went. The girls have been asking to go back to the fair ever since. I can't wait until next year. I am going to get that apple dumpling that I have been wishing I had gotten ever since we left!
