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!

Busy Saturday

3 Nov


The time change is always a hard time in our house so we decided our approach this year would be pure exhaustion. We started the morning bright and early with Miss H’s final soccer game. The kids all had a good time and Miss H continued her five goal run.


They got trophies at the end. Everyone was happy.


One final team shot. We are looking forward to being on the same team for the spring season.


Then it was off to Home Depot for their kid’s Saturday even. We made a boat and a heart basket.


Since the weather was lovely and really warm for the second day of November- we headed out to explore the neighborhood. Miss H likes the ‘big place.’



So does the dog.


We got our fill of vitamin D and fresh air.


Then it was off to ice skating. Miss H has been asking about lessons since we saw Disney on Ice and we found lessons for her age group. The instructor was great and it was cool to see how quickly all the kids picked it up.


They all started off sitting.


Then it was wobbly standing.


And, next thing we knew, they were going across the rink. (Step, step, glide. Step, step, glide.)


Miss H is excited for more lessons!

After all this, I think Kerry and I were the most warn out but Miss H did sleep well. Most importantly, she slept until her normal time this morning!
