Seriously... a month has gone by?!

So it's kind of hard to believe that I'm writing almost a month after my last post. I guess time really does fly by when you're having fun. Okay, so our life isn't all peachy-keen all the time, but we've had some good times in the past 30 days.

Claire is going to gymnastics (can't remember if I mentioned that or not) and she really enjoys it. They basically do a bunch of obstacle courses, but it gets her energy out and she's learning how to jump. Well... kind of.

We also did our annual 'Moms group goes to the Pumpkin Patch' (okay - so it's only the 2nd time, but it IS going to be a tradition). I got some fun photos, and brought home some sweet tastey treats.

For Halloween I completely failed in doing my dream costume for Claire. I was going to make her 'McDonalds French Fries' but amazingly, it takes far more time to cut foam (thanks Dad) and cover it with felt and cut out a box and cover THAT with felt and attach ribbon for 'straps', than one would imagine. So the night before I rummage through the hall closet and find the spider costume that Claire wore last year. It wasn't TOO dirty, and all I had to buy was a black long sleeved shirt. So that was cool.

Anyway, other than that, nothing much else is going on. Apple Hill is in the final stretch (our last weekend is in 2 weeks) and then I'll be able to relax a little. I'll be doing a super small Christmas craft show to get rid of excess stock, and then once January hits, I'll be in full factory swing again. I got into a huge show in LA, but I'll comment more on that later.

Until next time, here are some photos that will hopefully make you smile.

Halloween - just before trick or treating starts

'Nice Monkey costume. I think it's totally realistic!'

Claire has become a big fan of NOT holding hands when walking down the street.

This girl loves her some lollipops (or 'pops' as she calls them)

Enjoying some treats sans costume (whatcha thinking there Gwen?)

This is how Claire looked half the time we were in the hay jumping area at the pumpkin patch

This is how she looked for the other half

Claire and her friend Matea walking through the Corn Maze

I said, 'Wave hi to daddy!' and this is what we got.

I LOVE CLAIRE! I love her face at the pumpkin patch! And that spider costume never gets old:) I can't believe how long her hair is and how tall she is getting. It will be so fun to see her in December:)
