What we've been saying

I've been keeping track of these for a long time, so now I have a ton.  They are mostly from Ashlee's mouth; I don't know if Caitlin doesn't say many silly things or if I just don't write them down, probably the latter.

She told us that her friend brought "a mommy" for show and share this week.  Upon further investigation we found out it was actually a mummy.

During General Conference the girls were really trying to listen.  Ash said, "Is he talking to me?" We told her yes he was.  Later during the same talk she said, "Is he still talking to me?"  We again told her yes.  Then she said, "Well I don't want to listen!"

When I got my hair cut I asked Ashlee if she liked it.  She responded, "Maybe not.  It is kind of hanging in your face."

She and Caitlin were playing a game with Chris and he wasn't following the rules right.  She said, "You are "tweating"!!!"

Smoky the Bear visited her pre-school class at the college.  She told us all about it during dinner.  She is afraid of a lot of things, mascots included, so she said she just looked at him and went back in the room.  Among the things she told us about him were that he could not talk and he was NOT coming to our house.  I asked, "did you tell him he couldn't come to our house?"  She said, "No Mom, remember he can't talk!!!!"   (I guess his hearing is impaired also)

I told her she couldn't have 1 of my pre-natal vitamins because they are HUGE and she would choke on it.  She said- and demonstrated- "I can open my mouth really big."

During dinner of hot soup she said, "I ate it and it burned my teeth."

She told me "When I get big I will be Cait, and when she is little she can be Ashlee!"
I think this is the same reasoning Caitlin had when she was that age and told me that when she got big she would drive the car, and when I got little I would ride in the car seat.

And I've probably written it before but it is my favorite thing she says.  "Mom, are you mad or nice?"

Fall colors

I have been trying to make home life a little more exciting for the girls by letting them do more crafty projects.
Yesterday they made fall trees with sponges and paint.
Chris wanted in on the tree making.

 The finished pictures needed a night to dry, but are now hanging up for us to enjoy.
(I drew Ashlee's tree, Caitlin drew her own- she is getting very good a drawing.  Chris drew his own also.)

pumpkin picking

This year we went to a pumpkin patch that was held by the hospital for employees. 
It was just small affair with not too many pumpkins.
We went, picked out a pumpkin, ate a cookie, had some hot apple cider and left.

Pumpkin Faces

beauty stuff

On Sunday the girls stood in front of this mirror and did their hair and "make-up", while I did the same in the bathroom.

And I got my hair cut much shorter and I love it.  Here is a blurry self-photo, to show it off.

Something new

Grandma and Grandpa Will brought the girls new outfits when the came and visited.

Thanks Grandma and Grandpa!

Applesauce- round 2

We had a visit from Chris' parents this weekend.  They came to see his show, and to make applesauce. We spent the entirety of Saturday making lots and lots of applesauce.

The girls enjoyed playing with Grandma and Grandpa.

So far in October

we have been busy, just not busy blogging.

Chris helped me can peaches, and I was soooo happy to have his help.
And I made green tomato relish from green tomatoes in our garden.

We made salsa from our garden.  We LOVE this salsa, and we have tons in the freezer now.

I made a Halloween craft with friends.

Ashlee and I hang out together alot, and we love every second.  It has been fun having 1 on 1 time with her while Caitlin is at school.

Speaking of Caitlin, she loves everything about kindergarten, especially recess.  I get to go and help in the classroom 1 hour every monday which is a fun little peak into her life everyday. 

Lastly, and with no pictures, we enjoyed our BEAUTIFUL fall weather.  70-80 degrees daily for all of September and the first week of October; and not a single freeze, that has got to be some kind of record.
