I am way behind on posting pictures. I know this may not be a problem for most of you, but I like to have a record of things, so bear with me. Here are some completely random shots that have nothing to do with each other, but I thought I would throw them all together and see what comes out. Kind of like a GLEE mash-up. Yes, I went there.
Here are my sweet kids enjoying the beautiful Fall weather. I LOVE autumns in Kansas. They are almost as perfect as the ones in East Tennessee. Almost.
We went to a pumpkin patch earlier in the month and Bennett had to find Levi first thing. These kids adore each other. Bennett always wants to see her "bestest buddy."
I went to the pumpkin patch with a bunch of other ladies from my Moms group.
My friend Sarah and her beautiful little girl, Reese.
Only my daughter would completely ignore the pumpkins and head straight for the fake horses on the wall. She is not right in the head sometimes.
Look, Bennett found a pumpkin!
Look, Will found a paci!
My daughter wears her Cinderella dress everywhere. And I do mean everywhere. I don't want to stifle her creative spirit, but I did have to draw the line at wearing it to church. If they think I'm odd when she wears smocked dresses, there ain't no telling what the would think if she showed up in this.
Gooey pumpkin goodness
Stoic and focused Rob on pumpkin scooping duty. Stoic and focused Bennett copying her Dad.
Casey- if you're reading this, there's your drawing table. It's like Switzerland in this house. It's the only neutral activity that my kids will actually do together.
I snapped this shot of Bennett on her way to school. I absolutely love this picture. And how pretty does it look outside? I mean, come on!
My friend Ali had a Halloween party so I took Goldilocks and Baby Bear a few days before Halloween.
Some of my lovely KC friends with their cute little ones.
Of course, Bennett only had eyes for Levi.
Until she found a horse. Then Levi was history. And baby bear had long shed his costume by this point. I'm telling you, my kids and horses are matches made in heaven. We drive around in the afternoons and just look for horses. Think what you will, but that gets me through many long "witching hour" afternoons.
And here's Levi again. This time the bestest buddies met up for a play.
Here are the budding thespians catching a morning show of, "Alexander and the No Good, Horrible, Very Bad Day." It was such a cute show and I probably enjoyed it more than the kids. I will instill my love of theatre into Bennett or else.
Afterwards we caught lunch at the train restaurant...
... and then they hung out in the train with their friend, Ridley.
The cutest kids in the world. It's my blog and I can say that. But they are.
Okay, I'm done. If you made it to the end then you deserve a reward. Maybe three blog posts in a row that don't have any pictures in them. Would that be a good enough reward? We shall see.
