Pumpkin patch and birthdays!

So I haven't posted in a while. Here's what has occupied a good chunk of my "blogging time" (after the babies go to bed):
After the costume that Kailey wanted sold out I decided to make her a costume. It wasn't as hard as I thought that it would be, but it took more time than I thought that it would. (pictures of the finished product will be in the next post). After I finished the costume, Joel gave me Little Big Planet for my birthday and I have been playing that during blog time this week.

I don't have any trunk or treat pictures because I left my camera at home :( There is a picture of Kailey in Robin's post.

Some things that I missed:
Last Saturday we went to a pumpkin patch near Hammond. I didn't get any pictures , but there was also a petting zoo (too busy petting to take pictures I guess) with a cow, pony, goats, rabbits, chickens, and a turkey. We all had a really good time.

We even got to milk a fake cow!

Kailey tried to roll down the hill, but couldn't quite get it despite Joel's best efforts to help. She rolled in a circle rather than down, but had fun anyway.

Happy Birthday Joel!! (his b-day was the 26th). In honor of Joel's birthday, here are a few things that you might not know about him:
sometimes when we are sitting on the couch together he pinches with his toes. he loves scifi and martial arts movies, he becomes obsessed with things (guns, computer stuff, etc.) and researches the heck out them on the internet, he loves to make spreadsheets like no one i have ever met (except his dad).

Happy Birthday Joe!! (his b-day was the 27th). Bet you didn't know that Joe likes beets :)

Happy Birthday Jamie! (hers was the 29th). Did you know that Jamie's loves animals and wanted to be a vet for a little while when she was in elementary school. (Clare you don't count, because she knew Jamie at the time).

My mom came on our birthday to visit and she stayed to babysit while we (me, Joel, Jamie, and Joe) went out to eat. Ms. Shelia, Joe's mom, came and helped babysit, too. We went to one of our favorite hibachi grills in Baton Rouge. It was so nice to go out and eat without the kiddos. So peaceful. Jamie and I saw an old friend, Charlie, that we graduated with.

I'll be posting a few trick or treating pictures in the next couple of days.


  1. hey, a little known fact of holly...she was on the, worst, darn flag team ever in high school.
    happy birthday holly.

    also, brennan rolls in circles, too, which is a shame b/c there are TONS of hills here, even in our own back yard (literally)


  2. That's a good post...with plenty of pics. :) I love all of them. I think you need to get a fake cow with udders for your front yard.

    You did a great job with Kailey's costume. Hooray for craftiness!

    Thanks for the tidbits of little known facts. Mmm beets. (slight gag)

    I see your kiddos are sporting some mighty fine chucks too. Nice. :)

  3. Isn't that the best pumpkin patch ever? I take my class there every year. For some reason, this year's class asks me almost everyday when we are going back there. "Are we going back to the pumpkin patch tomorrow?" Although I wish we could go everyday, it sadly have to tell them no. So what did ol Charlie have to say? What's he up to now?
