This is Halloween!

Quick little picture post of my Halloween's as a parent. :) So far I've had 3 and they keep getting better and better.

On Monkey's first Halloween, he was 4 months old. I didn't dress him up,I didn't take him trick or treating. We stayed home and passed out candy and carved pumpkins. It was lovely.

Monkey's 2nd Halloween was more fun! We took him to a "Scare on the Square" were we went trick-or-treating in the stores. He was Captain America! He hated have the mask on his face... I don't have a picture of last years pumpkin.

This year we went back to the "Scare on the Square" and my sister abd her beautiful family met us up there. Monkey had so much fun trick-or-treating with his cousins.

We even took a picture in front of the same tree! Can we say family tradtion!? I'm already looking forward to next year!

Hope everyone else had a safe and happy Halloween. I'm off to eat some candy!

Fall Family Fun Day!

Remember this Fall fun List post? If not go read it and come back. I'll wait...

Done yet? Okay! Well, we actually did something on the list! Three somethings actually! I'm proud of myself!

On Saturday, my little family ventured out to Blase Family Farm. It was wonderful.

We fed cows,goats and sheep. They were so gentle and tame. I was worried Monkey was going to hurt them not the other way around.

After we fed the adorable animals. *Look at the fat little sheep!* We went and took pictures of the little guy while we waited for the hay ride!

He started singing "itsy bitsy spider in this picture. I'm guessing he's singing "down came the rain"... The hay ride was good. Not too long and not too short. We got to see their blueberry patch and I plan on picking blueberries come June. :) 

After the hayride C and I enjoyed hot dogs. There will be no pictures of me stuffing my face. (thank you verymuch) I took one of C...but I think he'd be mad if I posted it. So heres a picture of the hot dog Monkey
 refused to touch. I've never seen a kid that hates hot dogs like he does

After a yummy hot dog, it was pumpkin picking time! Monkey picked a pumpkin right away and refused to put it dow or look at any others. He's loyal like that. He kept saying "my pumpkin..right here my pumpkin. It was priceless. In fact the whole day was a great family day and something I will remember forever.

So we visited a pumpkin patch, went on a hayride and we took family pictures outside!
I LOVE fall!

We Want to Know Wednesday


Here are this week's questions and answers!

1. When was the last time you lost your temper? I really don't know. C could probably tell you. :P

2. What 3 words best describe you? Ummm... friendly, caring and nerdy. As much as I love talking about myself this was hard to answer. Probably because it was hard to pick only 3 words! ;P

3. What movie could you watch over and over again and never get tired of? Breakfast At Tiffany's. I LOVE that movie. Have you seen it?!?! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

4. If you could do something dangerous, just once, with no risk, what would you do? Roller Derby hands down. I love those tough chicks. I bruise like a peach tho.

5. Which is more important, intelligence or common sense? I'm going to go with common sense. Honestly though, is it really common sense when it seems like 85% percent of people don't have it!?

I haven't done this in forever but I figured I'd give it a go again and see if it helps get me back into the habit of blogging more!

No red flags and Feetball!

I don't know how aware most of you are but we had Monkey's autism screening on Friday. I am so happy to say that they no longer see any red flags or warning signs. ECI (early childhood intervention) has been handling all of Monkey's therapies and they are wonderful. I get tears in my tears when I think of how much help they have been and what could have happened with my son had we not had them.  Monkey is still having speech and developmental(play) therapy twice a week. He is making great progress!!! His vocabulary has improved so much ! We are pretty confident that he will be completely caught up  by the time he turns 3!

I'm so glad that we got help as early as we did. I really believe it has made a huge difference.

Scout said the cutest thing this weekend. We were watching football (Don't even get me started on the Cowboy game. Ugh) and my little man pointed to the TV and said "Feetball, Daddy, Feetball!" lol

Blanket love...

I have a blanket from when I was young that I love. It's yellow, which is my least favorite color. It has a hole in it and the material feels more like wool than chasmere. My mother had it knitted/crocheted for me.  I've take that blanket on every move with me even though I don't sleep with it on a regular basis.I LOVE this blanket. I don't even let my dogs on it. I've been looking for a blanket like that for Monkey. One that will go to college with him, one that he will take to his first apartment and maybe into his first home as a married man and maybe one day he'll cuddle with his kids under it. I can't find anyone that knits/crochets anymore, unless they are on etsy. I can't really afford them. Sadly... I mean look how perfect these are...

Granny Square Baby Blanket Turquoise Green BrownGranny Square Baby Blanket Penelope

I LOVE this shop... All Things Granny

So what's a momma to do? I bought yarn, needles and a crochet hook. I'm going to knit or crochet a blanket for my baby. I've never even attempted this type of craft before. I can't sew to save my life unless you need a button sewn on with half a spool of thread.

Wish me luck!
