More catching up!

Happy Thanksgiving! We had a nice day. My dad came over for dinner. The kids were great, if exhausted from a lack of naps the past few days. Also, right before dinner Connor started asking when everyone was coming over! Sorry to disappoint, but we have a small family. He was really crying and he thought that Quinten was coming over for dinner! Poor guy. He got over it, especially once the food was served! Anyway, I don't have pictures yet, but will soon. I do, however, have pictures from Halloween.

Painting pumpkins: (It all washed off, but an afternoon of quiet was so worth it!)

Carving pumpkins:

Playing in the leaves!

I also have Halloween pictures. I have to apologize for the quality. I didn't have my "Poor light, excited candy filled children" filter on. We had a princess (Belle) a king, and a transformer (Optimus Prime).

Wow, it's been a month.....

Wow, has it been a long time since I've updated this blog. I think perhaps ths is how I should just start each and every entry!

Anyway, here's what we've been up to:
Soccer is finally over. Connor really had a blast, and actually became pretty good. He now plays soccer every single afternoon after school with me in the front yard. It's really fun! As with every sport or activity these days, every kids gets an award, and he got a medal for soccer. In the first shot you can see Connor and best pal Quinten fighting for the ball.

Aisling also finished her farm school. This was a Saturday program that she and I went to four times at Shelburne Farms. It was so great. It is a program designed for three year olds and a parent. Connor went when he was younger. I highly recommend it! Anyway, for their last day they made corn bread. You can see she was even brave enough to (finally) touch a chicken. We spent an entire week on the farm this summer, and she would not go near the animals! (Save the baby goats...)

We also went apple picking like a half a bazillion times. Connor went with his school, then Aisling went with her school, then we went on our annual trip with all our friends. Needless to say, we have a cabinet FULL of applesauce. (And some apples left over that are, well, rotting away...)
Aisling's school trip:

I took a bunch of pictures from Connor's school trip, but don't know where they are... so I would tell you that I will add them later, but I never will, so why lie? But, here are some pictures from our annual friends' trip.

I am going to end there for now. This blog got long, and it's hard to continue. Look for further installments!
