Kate & Mommy

Katie's 1st Jack O Lantern!
( Mike is pretty talented he did this freehand with a few kitchen knives!)

Kathryn had a great 1st Halloween! Although, she was too little to go Trick Or Treating, she had fun sitting outside and handing out candy. It was a beautiful night for Trick or Treaters, so we were able to sit out on the porch. We had lots of kids, and actually ran out of candy. Even though we had bought 6 of the BIG bags of candy, minus whatever mommy ate : ). We gave out KitKats, Recee Cups, Snickers, 3 Musketeers, and Butterfingers.

Halloween Painting Fun

Katie had a lot of fun painting her 1st pumpkin! She got paint EVERYWHERE by the time she was done she had green hair, and I had a green kitchen floor! It's all about the process, and she had a blast!

The Finished Product!

Happy Fall!

Just some fun shots of Kathryn and the pumpkins!

A Day At The Pumkin Patch!

Today Kathryn and I went to the pumkin patch with Auntie Kris and Christian. Auntie was very excited to get Katie her 1st Pumpkin, Katie on the other hand would have much preferred to sleep. Mommy should have known better then to go right smack in the middle of Katie's nap. When Kate needs a nap, no matter where she is she needs to sleep. Well she screamed the entire time we were there. Wanted nothing to do with the pumpkins. Screamed everytime I put her down to take her picture with the pumpkins. EEEK!!! So I only ended up with one sad picture of Kate and the pumpkins. Better luck next year!

A Girl and her Kitty!


Even Tigger (the sometimes anti social cat!) Let's Katie play with him, even if her idea of playing is pulling his tail!

A girl and her puppy!


Shelby is no longer Mommy's baby...he's got a new girl in his life! Kate!
They both adore each other! (To think Mike and I were worried he would be jealous.
He could care less about us!)

Bubble Play

Katie LOVES bubble Play!

Big Girl with a Sippy Cup!


Kate has recently learned how to drink through a straw!!! We found a great sippy cup with a straw and she is loving it. Although I do have to say, it makes mommy a little sad. I actually cried watching her be so independent. As excited that I am that she is growing up and doing so well. Part of me misses the 5 pound baby that she was not so long ago. I remember how excited Mike and I would get when she would drink the teeny tiny 2 oz bottle in the NICU.
She's come a long way!!!

Mmmmm... Chinese Food!


For dinner we ordered Chinese food... Kate enjoys sitting in her Bumbo...and begging us for food! : ) Anyway she loves to try whatever we are eating and tonight was no different. She loved the rice and noodles, and chicken fingers. I gave Kate a little taste of Sweet & Sour Sauce and she was not a fan.
