Pumpkin Patch

We went to Pendleton's with friends again this year.  It was a wee bit chilly, but we still had fun!  The pumpkin patch was pretty pathetic though- with the drought over the summer, and then a few freezing nights took out whatever was left over.

At the laundromat

A couple of weeks ago our dryer stopped working.  It was temporary (Ross fixed it the next day), but it was out long enough that we needed to take a trip to the laundromat.  I was actually really excited to go and to take my camera along!  The kids had fun putting the quarters in and watching the laundry go around and around.  I'm sure it wouldn't be as fun if we had to do it every time, but it was a nice little break from the ordinary.

Kids at play

Well, I've gotten rather behind again.  I've been better at getting my camera out more often though.  Leah likes to get out my jar of buttons and run her hands through them.  And drop them off the bed.

Leah is dressed in one of her princess dresses 80% of the time.  Ethan also takes part every once in a while.  But he's more into super heros and ninjas and stuff.  Also, that's a newly stenciled wall in the background.  It is taking FOREVER!  I still haven't finished it completely.  But I like it.

I love hearing their crazy imaginations at work.  Ethan is really good at creating elaborate scenarios.   Often he sets everything up for a grand picnic-- and then they don't actually sit down to 'enjoy' the picnic.  I suppose getting everything ready is the fun part.

Although Ethan is super into boy stuff- he's become really loving and affectionate to babies.  He loves all of my friends babies and he enjoys taking care of Leah's baby doll too.  The other day he was in front of the house just quietly sitting and holding the little baby doll close.  So cute.

I have had the hardest time finding some fall color to use as a background low enough for my kids.  And now it's pretty much too late.  This tree was decent.  But Leah found a spider on one of the leaves and would have nothing to do with it after that.
