Warm and Toasty

I remember doing this at home until I thought my feet would burn off!


Christmas in November

While I was tempted to get the trees out, we settled on doing Christmas crafts all week instead.


Rub A Dub Dub

These two have discovered the joys of momma's big ol' tub. Nat LOVES it, especially the jets. Harper doesn't like the jets so much and has to get out before we turn those on.

They even pretend to be in my tub in the playroom.


Battle of Wills

Harper's ready to potty train, I promise she is. She can go hours without accidents. She will bring me a diaper when she needs to go. She will tell me when she has gone in her diaper within seconds of doing it. However the child will not sit on the potty and do the deed.

Saturday I thought we might come to blows (totally kidding) over it. She had gone all morning in panties, not one accident. We wanted to go out to eat so we asked her to pee pee and we'd leave. Well after probably a one hour standoff, the little heathen threw a tantrum of all tantrums and peed in the floor with her potty two feet away.

I had to leave the room I was so mad. All three of us tried bribing her, nothing. So we are back in diapers. Maybe after Christmas we will try again. Maybe.


Early Birds Get the Doughnuts

I can't really blame it on the time change but Natalie & Harper were both easy to get up this morning and when I mentioned we had time to make a pit stop, they hauled butt to the car.

Two bags of doughnut holes and two pink sprinkle doughnuts please :)


Pre Halloween Trick-o-Treating

The nursing home at the entrance of subdivision held a Trunk-or-Treat type event last night for the kids. I thought it might be a good way to get Harper used to the idea. Yeah, that was a total bust. She insisted I hold her the whole time. But all the girls got some good candy and the elderly people really enjoyed seeing all the kids dressed up.

Glad I snapped these before we left, it may be the only photo I get of Harper in her Anna costume. Little stinker....

Maleficent & Elsa & stubborn little Anna down below who flat refused to stand next to either one of them for a picture.

Pumpkin Patch Trip

Yesterday was Natalie's first ever field trip and, of course, it was to the pumpkin patch. I gotta hand it to these teachers, within 5 minutes I was ready to thump about all the little BOYS in the head for just acting stupid. I kept having to tell myself that they weren't MY kids and just worry about the two (Nat and Olivia) who I was responsible for. Maybe God did know what he was doing when he gave me two girls..lol   Not that they act ignorant sometimes too, but boys just seem to always run on full throttle.

Anyways, the little girl in 90% of the pictures with Natalie is Olivia. Natalie is always coloring cards, she has to take extra snacks to share with Olivia and they also go to the after school program together. That girl took to me like white on rice. I might even say Nat got a tad jealous because she always wanted to sit by me, hold my hand, and photobomb my pictures.  They had a large time, picked their pumpkins and enjoyed a picnic. 

Natalie and first best friend (besides Kaylee) Olivia
The whole class, and no I don't know but maybe 5 of their names.
Ms Turner & Ms Selph


Right before this was snapped Olivia was like "hold on a minute," grabbed my hand and just plopped right next to me. She actually pouted when I told to hop off so I could get one with just Natalie.
