Visitors around Halloween

7 Dec

I am woefully behind on blog posts.

Dad and Kathy came to visit in October. They arrived to great weather and we were them out with pumpkin carving, soccer and apple picking. It was a fun visit!

10202014-2It was serious carving business.

10202014-3They were impressed with our house decorations.

10202014-4And impressed with Miss H’s soccer skills.

10202014-1We headed out to Stribling Orchard and it was great fun to pick apples, enjoy the nice weather and have a lunch on the hill after we were finished with bags of apples.



Yeah for visitors!

Snow this weekend?

28 Oct

There is a strange forecast that is calling for snow around here this weekend. I am not expecting a white Halloween but I guess it is possible. The tempertures have certainly dropped this week.

Speaking of Halloween, Miss H has been testing out her costumes all week. She is getting use out of the cat costume she refused to wear last year and this years lady bug ensemble. Today, was a lady bug kind of day.

Luckily, her best friend is a bumble bee.

They have mastered the whole ‘trick or treat,’ but not getting the concept that they have to wait until Monday to knock on the neighbors doors.

Miss H loooooooooooves our iPhones. Luckily, we have downloaded more educational games than Angry Birds.

I am not sure if we should be scared or impressed with her aptitude for using the mini-computer. She can easily scroll through pictures, launch the game she wants and adjust the sound. Now, if we could stop her from calling random people, we would be really impressed.

Sometimes she gets advice for Dad about which eyes, mouth, nose and hat to put on the singing and dancing Elmo.

Keep warm this weekend!
