Kids will be kids!

My Colin.....wearing Taylor's High heels and pulling his golf bag!!!

Now, playing with his tools, while in high heels....only Colin!!!

Trying to figure out my Ipod.

Tub time...I think he'd look cute with a mohawk!!!


All time favorite...AIRPLANE!!!!

Taylor's new haircut. I didn't really notice HOW BADLY she needed it cut, until we actually got it cut!! It looks so cute on her!!!

She didn't want her picture taken, but this was the best I could get.

Welcome Fall!

Yes, Fall has arrived. I had wished that summer had only lasted a little longer down here. We've enjoyed the pool far more this year than last year. (Thanks to the heater!) However, I love this time of year. I've had all the patio doors open for the past 2 weeks and finally got my fall scented candles out today. What is it about the cool breeze, the leaves changing different beautiful colors, or the smell of burning leaves? Or maybe it's waking up and sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee?! I don't know. But I LOVE it. I'm looking forward to looking across the Lake and watching the trees change colors, and taking walks with the kids to show them the colors of nature. ( I know I normally don't blog about this serious/sentimental kinda stuff...but I love this time of year. I only makes me want to be with my family more! Maybe it's because the "BIG" holidays are around the corner and it's all about family!) I just hope everyone gets to enjoy the beautiful fall weather! Could we have two, Fall seasons, instead of the Winter? Probably not!
(Jordan....I LOVE your blog theme. I got my idea from you...I hope you don't mind!)
So, on that note, here are some pictures from the Fall Festival that was a couple weekends ago. The kids, as always, LOVED the inflatable houses, slides, and obstable course. Last year, Colin was not old/big enough to go in/on by himself. So this year he was able to enjoy it.

In the Disney Bounce House

This was the start of the obstacle course one. Colin made it thru the whole thing without any help!

Slidin' down at the end of the course.

It was pretty warm that day too. So when we got home, I decided to head down to the pool for awhile. We came back up and Colin zonked out on the couch. He was a tired little guy!

Taylor's 1st Day of Preschool

Taylor started Preschool on Monday. She is in the MWF PM class and goes from 12:15-3:15. She is, so far, having a good time. Monday night, I layed in bed with her and she kept talking about her day, "then we did this, then we went outside," etc. Taylor: "I had fun at school". So that made is easier for me! :)

They were allowed to bring a 'Zoo' animal to school with them for their Zoo day. She took her musical Giraffe.

We met Tim at the store for lunch before we took her over.

Outside of her school

Play-Doh...doesn't get any better than that!

Jayden's Birthday

I drove up to Burlington last Saturday for Jayden's birthday. He turned 4 this year and had a Train theme.

We drew a hopscotch game on the sidewalk the other day and she had so much fun with it.
