The other morning Hannah thought she looked extra cute on her way to school and asked me to take a picture. The cat she is holding was her sharing item for that day.

Story Time

A few nights ago while I was making dinner the girls decided to read some books together.

I was pretty surprsied when I found that they had gathered so many books for story time.

This activity kept them busy for quite a while.

Halloween Fair

The day before Halloween we took the girls to a little fair. They were having a food drive for free ride tickets.
They had a little petting zoo.

Free popcorn.

A horse drawn carriage.
And a spooky hay maze. It was raining so we only stayed a little while but it was lots of fun!

Pumpkin Picking

We took the girls to one of the local farms to pick pumpkins.

They had a little hay maze that the girls loved.

Rachel liked the chickens.

The girls fed some grass to the goats.

We were so happy to have such a beautiful day.
Hannah kept wanting really big pumpkins, so we told her she could have it if she could carry it.
Luckily she decided this one was too heavy.

Rachel loved her little pumpkin.

Hooray for pumpkins!

Wild Waves Fright Fest

We went to Wild Waves one night for thier Fright Fest. We stayed in the kiddy land and had so much fun.
They had trick-or-treating for the little kids and a bubble room.

Hannah playing the "drums."

We had lots of fun going on rides.

They didn't let Rachel ride the planes :( she was a few inces too short so we rode the train instead.
Thanks for such a fun time Dan!

Hooray for Fall!

Fall here in Washington is beautiful. The other day the girls and I went for a little walk to enjoy the scenery.

Lately Hannah has been collecting leaves. This is one of the big ones.

Running home.
Hooray for fall!

Costume Party

A few days before Halloween Hannah's preschool class had a costume party. She wore her costume for a while in the beginning of class, but by the time the party started she wanted it off.

Here is Hannah with her friend, Bella.

After playing a few games and singing Halloween songs, the kids lined up to go trick-or-treating around the classroom.

Rachel got comfy and watched.

They had a little party with yummy snacks.

Rachel got to participate too.

Here is the class singing one of thier songs. I liked how Rachel wanted to sing, too.

And a bonus one because I accidentally uploaded the wrong one first :)

Pumpkin Carving 2010

Here are the pictures from our pumpkin carving this year. At first the girls were pretty unsure about wanting to participate.

Hannah cried...
Rachel observed....
and then Rachel got brave and grabbed a handful of punpkin guts.
When Hannah saw that Rachel could do it, she stopped her crying and got to work.
And we were up to our elbows in pumpkin guts.

Both girls did an awesome job on thier pumpkins.
