Pumpkin Patch

Ella's Preschool class went to the Pumpkin Patch on Monday. It was really fun with lots of activities such as a hay ride, tree house, wooden maze, jumping house, swing set, animal petting area, and more. (It was Mary's Place in Bryant.) Ella wanted Sophie to go too, so she tagged along for the fun!

Since Ella was the snack leader she got to say the prayer before their snack, it was so cute!

Sophie likes to say CHEEEEESE when she sees the camera now-ha!

Ella loved this big swing!

Making Memories

Ginger always says when we are together that we are "making memories." Gabby and Ginger were here Wednesday through Sunday. They came to be with us for the Race for the Cure weekend but we were unable to walk with some of their health issues they are having. So we stayed in and made some good memories at home. We watched the tough Hog Game and even Gabby was pretty worked up about it-ha! She is a big Hog Fan and cheers and yells with the best of them!

We worked on Ella's Preschool snack for tomorrow. Ella has told everyone that Gabby made her Pumpkin Rice Krispie treats. As Gabby and I made them together we talked about how Mom is smiling down on us doing these things for my girls. She would have had good snack and party ideas from her years of teaching Preschool!

Here is the finished product-Ella has snack day tomorrow for the Pumpkin Patch. It should be a fun field trip!

Go Hogs!

Tadd and I went up to Fayetteville for the weekend for me to do some work and to go to the Game. It was fun and cold. (A 40 degree drop from Benton to Fayetteville with lots of rain!) Anyway, the Game was exciting and fun to be up there. Good food and good shopping!

In case you can't see the final scoreboard it was Hogs 44 - Auburn 23! Go Hogs!

Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

So last Friday, Oct. 2, was my Mom's Birthday so I needed a fun distraction from missing her so much. It was so nice outside (unlike this Friday) so we went with some friends to the Zoo. It was a fun day and it took some of the pain out of another Birthday without my Mom away. We saw many animals and walked up many hills. To steal a line from the Wizard of Oz movie it was Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

Train Ride:My friend Courtney's little boy,Parker, he called the train Thomas,so cute!

Say Cheese!!

Sunday School Social

Last weekend we had a fun, outdoor Sunday School Social at a farm. There was fishing, horseback riding, and BBQ. There were lots of kids and lots of games. It was fun. It had two firsts for Ella: fishing and horseback riding. She caught 8 fish I was told. (I was chasing Sophie around so she wouldn't climb through the gate to see the horses up close-ha!) She has been wanting to go fish for a while now. She rode the horse alone for a few minutes before she wanted off-not bad for her first time. Brooks loved it too and was decked out in his Cowboy hat, boots, and a big grin. It was Fall Fun!!
