Pumpkin Patch

October is a fun month for us. Lizzie and Gracie love Halloween and pumpkins. There is a small but sweet pumpkin patch close to the house that the girls love. Each year, we visit this pumpkin patch several times. After Halloween, Lizzie asks when the patch will be open again and talks about it all year.

Yay, Pumpkins!

Fall is a fun time around our house. Wes has already made his pumpkin muffins. All we need now is a pumpkin pie!

Things I Love......

As I heard Wes giving the girls a bath today, I heard the girls giggling a ton. They were teasing their daddy and thought it was hilarious. That got me thinking about the things I love about our two girls.

I love:
  • Their laughs. I love that they tell silly jokes and that they think are funny
  • Their independence - the way they can walk into a situation and be OK
  • Their charm and sweetness - they make friends wherever they go
  • The way they will apologize and act sweet as soon as they know they pushed us too far
  • That they will tell me I look pretty
  • Their hugs and kisses
  • Our walks home from school where we talk about their day
  • That they will still cuddle with me
  • Their toughness - they don't cry anymore when they get shots
  • That a band-aid will instantly make them feel better
  • The way that they take care of each other
  • That they say please and thank you without prompting from Wes or I
There are many more reasons,and these are just a few. I am thankful for these two little girls and say a prayer for them everyday as they go to school. They do have faults and test us on a regular basis but we do love them.
