Tree Update - Part 4

It has been a little over a week and a half since my last tree post
and as you can see, there isn't much left! There are a few stubborn
leaves still hanging on for dear life toward the bottom, but all the
rest are long gone. Maybe the next time I post there will be snow?!?

Best Buds - Part 2

Here is another example of Noah and Millie getting along and 'playing'
Noah likes to climb up the side of the crib and get in to play with
Millie when she wakes up*. Here he is playing music from Millie's
music box to help her stop crying. As you can see, it worked!

*please note that I said that NOAH likes to climb up the crib and get
in with Millie...his Mommy, on the other hand does NOT like that he
does that! Mainly because he also does it when she is taking a nice
nap and wakes her up!

Tree Watch 2008 Part 3

Looks like my Tree Watch entries will soon be coming to an end! Not
too many leave left. I know all the rain we have been getting has
played a roll in that.

Noah's Turkey Craft

Noah and I made this fun turkey today after his nap. It turned out to be a great project for him! For the tail feathers, we traced his hands on construction paper and he cut them out mostly by himself...I had to help guide his hand and the paper. We used bamboo skewers to attach the feathers to the pumpkin. Next we glued the face pieces on...I think his favorite part were the google eyes!!

Tree Watch 2008 -part 2

Here is my tree update. I took this picture on Monday, 5 days after
the previous picture was taken. What a difference a few days can make!

Mr. Fix-it

After making our blueberry muffins this morning (from scratch!), Noah
wanted to put the batteries in the light I bought to put in the jack-o-
lantern so he went to his 'oom' (room) to get his screwdriver and 'am
ererer' (hammer). He tried, but the screwdriver wouldn't fit. That's
okay, I had the same problem...that is why it is still sitting on the
counter 5 days after Halloween!!

Swinging into Fall

Here is Noah on the swing at the park...possibly our last trip there
for the year? Hopefully not, but it IS November!

See more details below.

Last trip to the park??

Today is also just as beautiful as yesterday! I LOVE that the leaves
are falling and it is nice enough out to go for walks and 'crunch'
through them. We walked all the way to the 'far away' park today.
Millie slept all the way there and all the way back! Noah did a great
job of listening and stayed on the stroller's boogie board the entire
Here is a pic of Millie at the park.

Last Ice Cream of the year!

Yesterday was such a beautiful day! It was 70 degrees and
November!! Noah, Millie, Bowman and I all took a walk to the polling
station so I could vote. That was an event of itself! On the way back
the ice cream truck pulled up, so we decided to have one last outside
icecream for the year as I am sure beautiful days like this are
limited. We truly enjoyed our you can see. Millie had
some too...on her head!!! She was strapped to the front of me in the
baby carrier and I accidently dripped on her. Ooops! Guess we know
where Noah gets the messy gene.
