Pumpkin Carving

Over the weekend Reba and I picked up some pumpkins at our local Aldi's.  Daddy had part of the day off today in preparation of traveling for work; therefore, we spent the afternoon carving pumpkins!

Little Miss didn't waste any time digging in to clean out her pumpkin.

Luckily, Momma was able to find some tea lights in a drawer, so we got to light them up once it started getting dark.

Until next time...

Lunar Eclipse

Did you get up early this past week to see the lunar eclipse?  I did!  {It only required me to get up half an hour earlier than normal.}

I tried my hand at capturing some photos of the "Blood Moon," but I don't have one of those fancy-dancy cameras with all the frills.

Until next time...

Chop, Chop

 Someone got a haircut!
A week or so ago, I gave the boys haircuts.  That got Reba asking for a haircut too.  Only, she didn't just want a trim like Momma is use to giving her.  She wanted short hair "like Momma's".  I was pretty uneasy about cutting that much off, so I turned to a friend that is a beautician!  Miss Abby's daughter, Chloe, is one of Reba's best friends, and she was happy to help.
About halfway done!
I was afraid that after Miss Abby got started Reba would change her mind.  That was not the case at all!  Reba LOVES her new do.
 Until next time...

Fun Friday Fotos - Field Trips

On Tuesday, Dallas' 1st grade class (along with the kindergarten and 2nd grade classes) had their fall field trip.  Daddy was lucky enough to take the day off work and join Dallas!  They started with a trip to a local pumpkin patch - Goebel Farms.  They also went to the 4-H Fairgrounds for lunch and time to play.  Then, they finished up at Oaklyn Library.

These were the boys in Doug's group - Kaleb, Dylan and Dallas {Daddy was a little bit worn out when he got home :) }

On Wednesday, Reba's PreK class had their fall field trip.  I was able to join her while Carla watched Julianne.  Reba's class went to Goebel Farms, too!  The kiddos were soooo excited to ride a school bus!

At the end of the trip, Mrs. Gries asked each child what their favorite part of the field trip was.  This wheat table was Reba's favorite.
Until next time...

Proud Parent Moment

Doug and I are busting at the seams today with pride.

Dallas' class was in charge of Mass this morning (students are chosen to do the readings, petitions, and bring up the gifts), and Dallas was chosen to read the petitions!  Thankfully, Daddy was able to go into work a little late, so we were all able to attend church together.  Enjoy, and share in this joyful experience with us!
Until next time...
