The Pumpkin Patch

I have been on an unintentional hiatus from blogging. It has been so crazy around here, I haven't taken the time to blog and I miss it! A lot of things have been going on around here.... for one... Bailee has decided she wants to potty train, and no longer screams at the top of her lungs when I try to put her on her potty. In fact, she regularly goes and does it herself, granted the potty is dry but at least she will sit on the darn thing. Potty training a girl is much more difficult than a boy. Brayden was potty trained at 2. Being that she is my last child.... there is no rush, although the savings would be nice!

Brayden has started flag football about four weeks ago. But, between him being sick and the rain we have had.... he hasn't played one game. Tomorrow will be his first! School is going great for him. He loves his teacher and his school. He has become crazy about reading Junie B. Jones. There are nights were long after putting him to bed, he is up reading. I have had to get on him about putting down the book and going to sleep. I never in a million years thought I would be having to get on him for staying up too late reading! He may look like his daddy but he is his mommy 100%.

Today the kids and I, Mimi, Aunt Shelley, Uncle Brian, and little Luke all headed to Bracken United Methodist Church's Pumpkin Patch. It is a fabulous pumpkin patch with FREE hayrides and a HUGE selection of pumpkins. The best part is.... it is only 1o minutes or so from our house! The kids had a great time and thanks to Mimi & Opi, we have a HUGE pumpkin. I will be posting pictures of it after we carve it. This year for Halloween, Bailee is going to be TinkerBell and Brayden is going to be Bumblebee from Transformers.

Well.... I am signing off.... headed to bed so we can make it to early church.

In this picture... Bailee was refusing to look at the camera and decided to keep her eyes closed. Brayden, as you can see, thought that was hilarious.
She finally decided she would cooperate. Oh, that girl! (wow, they really look alike in this one)
