My Husband...

The other day I was out in our side yard and I saw a trail of popcorn on the ground. I turned to my husband and asked him what the popcorn was for. He tells me he left it out for the squirrels to eat.
How I adore this man.

A Typical Conversation

A typical conversation with my MK last night:

While showing MK a picture of a squirrel:
Me: what is that?
MK: mouse.
Me: no, that's a squirrel.
MK: mouse.
Me: squirrel.
MK: mouse.

Moving on, now showing MK a picture of a giraffe:
Me: what is that?
MK: zebra.
Me: no, that's a giraffe.
MK: zebra.
Me: giraffe.
MK: zebra.

So, apparently my 30 years of wisdom means absolutely nothing to my - wise beyond her years - 2 year old. I'm so in for it. Oh how she is so much like me.

Pickin' Pumpkins

Our trip to the pumpkin' patch today. Or as Marlee calls it, the pumpkin store...

M set out to find the perfect pumpkin

and pet the animals

and go down the huge far, her favorite

can you tell

and even though she looks to be having a good time, this was her pouty expression for most of the morning

unless she was going down the slide, that is.

PS-yes, those are holes in Dave's socks. As he says, they are his Sunday socks...Holy. Get it?
