Fletcher is always up to something! Usually no good! The other day he told me he did not want to be two anymore and he was going to tell people he was 4. Sophia then told him people would believe him because he is tall. It is going to be a fun year with Fletcher he says the funniest things!

Fall fun!

The fall is the best time of the year, the kids love jumping in leaves and having fun outside! We were up at James's parents house and the kids managed to rake up enough leaves to have some fun! Sophia was so excited!


Yesterday we went to Boo at the Zoo I had my doubts about the kids being able to handle the scary masks, but they were so brave. We had a great time and even rode the spooky train. Sophia was a little scared on the train but there were not tears! We cannot wait for trick or treat so we can all dress up again!

hay day

The kids love jumping in leaves but we have a shortage of trees in our yard so they settled for hay instead! We did this last year too and it is so much fun!

We took the kids bowling for the first time this summer and they loved it. Who doesn't enjoy bowling plus the shoes were awesome!

Silly Sophia

Sophia is so silly sometimes, she has a special talent of touching her tongue to her nose and she loves to show it off. The flowers are the ones she planted in her garden this year. They were beautiful!

Bark camp

We took the kids to bark camp this summer to check it out. I had never been there and the kids thought it was really cool. I was not expecting the dirt beach that they had to actually be dirt, I was thinking it would be dirty sand. Needless to say everyone was a filthy mess when we left. We are sticking to the swimming pool from here on out!

Sophia summer 2009

I recently took Sophia downtown to a little firetruck/ fire safety festival. She really was not into the fire stuff and the festival pretty much sucked but I did manage to get a few great pictures of Sophia! She is growing up so quick I cannot believe it!

Sophia's first day of 4 year old preschool

Sophia was so excited to go to preschool this year. She absolutely loves her teachers and the kids in her class are awesome. This was Sophia on her first day of school!

summer/fall pics

we grew these pumpkins in our backyard, the kids thought they were so neat!
This is our famous heart shaped tomatoe, it grew like this and we thought it was soo cool, Sophia even took it to show and tell one day!

These pics were from around the house and at my inlaws house. We had a great summer and had lots of fun!

She caught a WHOPPER!!!!

We went to Nanny Vopals house today and dug up worms to use for fishing. Nanny Vopal found a huge worm and Sophia used it first. We cast out her line about 6 times and all of the sudden she got one! She said "Something is pulling on it" I grabbed the pole and sure enough, she had one. It was about 12 inches long and weighed too much for her tiny Barbie fishing pole! I was a catfish! We were so excited!
