Field Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Last week Blake's class went on a field trip to the pumpkin patch! It just happened to be a rainy, cold day....but we had fun anyway. I got to go too :)

Blake's first ride on a bus. That might have been his favorite part!!
Checking out all of the different sizes, shapes, and colors of the pumpkins.

We went on a hayride too!!

Blake and his buddy Sam!

Trying to get a class picture....not an easy task! Blake has ALL boys in his class!

And trying again in the bus! You can see the top of Blake's head in the driver seat!

They got to ride the "pumpkin train" too!

Overall of was a fun trip...dispite the cold and rain! I didn't even think that the kids noticed the weather!!

Halloween fun!

Today was Blake's Halloween Party at school! This isnt actually a school day for Blake, but we took him in anyway because we didnt want him to miss out on the fun!! He chose his cowboy costume and he looked SO cute!!
Olivia went along too as a little ladybug to watch all of the fun!!

Olivia loves to get her picture taken....Blake, not so much!!

Just checking out all of the cool costumes!!

Blake and all of his friends!!

Out of 8 kids, there were two Spiderman, and 2 dragons!! haha

Blake's daycare is connected to a nursing home. The kids paraded around the hallway and all of the residents handed out candy. Fun for the kids...and the residents!!
Livi just paraded around with Blake and his friends. She had fun taking everything in!

and my mom too!!

Blake and his friends!!

Blake was such a good little boy! I was so proud of him. He listened so well to his teacher and said his thank-you's to everyone! Made this mama if I could only get him to act like that at hom!! haha.

Christmas Cards from Shutterfly

I couldn’t believe it when I got an e-mail from Shutterfly in regards to their 2011 Christmas Card selection…..CHRISTMAS??....already?? And then I realized that yep, the holidays are JUST around the corner and it is indeed time to think about ordering our Christmas Cards!

I am a frequent Shutterfly customer. I have ordered prints, greeting cards, invites, and calendars. The service and turnaround has always been great!!
I used Shutterfly for our Christmas cards last year and I was very pleased with the selection, service and quality.

This is the card (or similar to the card) that we chose last year:

They have a HUGE selection of Christmas cards to choose from this year.

These are a few of my favorites that I am deciding from this year!

If you haven’t checked out the selection that Shutterfly has to offer, be sure to do so soon!

December is a BUSY month in our household with the holidays and BOTH kids’ birthdays. This year will be BIG as we celebrate Livi’s 1st birthday and Blake’s 3rd birthday! I plan on getting party invites using Shutterfly as well.

Shutterfly is also a good stop for Christmas gifts. You cant go wrong with a personalized calendar for the grandparents!! Cute pics of the kids every single month!

They have cute thank-you cards too that will definitley come in handy!

OK....There is my Shutterfly promo for the season :)

Fall Fun!

A couple of weeks ago my mom and I took the kids to Anderson and Girls Apple Orchard. It was the first time that we had been there...and it is a pretty cool place. It was WAY to hot for a fall outing, but we had fun. There are tons of animals to feed and see, so Blake loved that.

Here is Blake and nana feeding the goats!

Livi wasn't sure what to think about all of it!!

Oops...Blake, where are you?!

There were real horses to ride....but Blake settled for this fake one instead :)

He LOVED this tire looked like a horse too!!

Blake and I will be heading to another Apple Orchard/Pumpkin Patch next week with his class...he has a field trip!

Splish Splash

Splish Splash I was taking a bath!! Livi Kay sure does love her bath time now!! She could just play in there for hours if we let her!! Its a good thing that she typically wears pink and has a bow on her head...because in these pictures you cannot tell her from Blake!! She looks JUST like he did at this age. I guess thats a good thing....because he is turning out to be pretty darn cute :)
