A pumpkin afternoon

On this beautiful fall afternoon our house was filled with three pizzas, one grandpa, one grandma, two great grandmas, an aunt, an uncle, a cousin, our family of four and 3 pumpkins.
This is the first time that the little man has carved a pumpkin. He said that he wanted to carve it into a trailer but than changed his mind and drew a face or three on his pumpkin.
When the pumpkins were carved and the seeds were roasted I tried to take a picture of the littles on the front porch with the pumpkin but tried was the key word.
Take one-
 Take two-
 Take three-
Today was a wonderful day filled full of amazing memories.

Playing in the kitchen

Our kitchen play set is one of the most used toys in our house.
It is used for cooking up felt pancakes, wooden pizza and the littles.
Its good to change things up every once in a while.
I am just having a great time watching the littles. Everyday they are doing something new and amazing.
Thank you littles for being who you were created to be.

Between the rain showers

The littles are missing being able to play outside. Just a few weeks ago we were spending most of our days outside and now our days are spent inside longing for a fire.
So today, in between the rain showers,we got outside and enjoyed some fresh air.
The little man found some wood in the garage and managed to build a ramp to jump his balance bike off of.

When we first got outside I did not bring the camera with me but when the ramp started forming I knew I need some pictures of this.
In the time that it took me to run inside and get the camera and come back the ramp was finished and the little man had his helmet strapped on.
 After the little man went on the ramp for a few times the little land knew it was her turn to try it out.
Life is full of rain showers (especially here in Washington) but they wont slow me down. Sooner or later there will be a break and I will take the opportunity and get out and enjoy it. Maybe I will even put on helmet and take a little bigger leap.

The magic of dirt

I read this post last night and it reminded me of these pictures that of the littles from our last camping trip.
By letting your kids play in the dirt not only will you get these cute pictures of them but you are also exposing them to good bacteria that helps them to be happier and could boost there IQ.
Good bacteria that can boost immune systems and help heal wounds.
So play in the dirt a little.
Then after a long day of playing in the dirt its time to hop in the bath and get cleaned up a little.
Only to go back out and play in the dirt a little more.
When was the last time you got out and played in the dirt?
