Pumpkin Patch & More Fall. . .






Mimi, the kids and I went to the pumpkin patch. It was a beautiful day. We had fun walking through the corn mazes, climbing on the hay and in the teepee. The kids picked out some pumpkins and apples. We had a really nice day.

When I was kid, I remembered making a pumpkin brownie every year. So this year, I called up my mom and asked her for the recipe. Here is our first attempt at the pumpkin brownie. They had fun and it was really good!

Grandparent's Day





Two weeks ago the kiddos had Grandparent's day at school. It was very cute. Luke sang very loudly and happened to be front and center. Grace played her bells very well during her performance; however, she did not sing one word :) My mom came and so did Mark's parents. They really enjoyed it. Here are a few pictures:

Fall 2007

I love this time of year. My home and my classroom are all decorated for fall. I love exposing my students to new aspects of fall. Today it was Indian corn. We talked about the texture and felt how "bumpy" it was, and made ears of corn with popcorn kernels. Last weekend, my kids and I did fun fall activities. They made foam shaped pumpkins, carmel apples with sprinkles and pumpkin shaped sugar cookies. I can't wait to go to the pumpkin patch in the coming weeks.

Our 10th Anniversary


Last Saturday I had fun picking out our cake and flowers for our 10th anniversary. The cute lady helping me kept asking if my mom or sisters were going to join me. I explained that it was for my 10th anniversary and not my wedding. She said I was too young to be celebrating my 10th anniversary :)
Our cake is going to be three tiers and be all ivory with ivory and gold design. Around the bottom is a decorative edging in black. I think I will use some sort of fresh flowers for the top or look for a topper. The one we used at our wedding doesn't really go with the theme. I also ordered all the flowers. I am excited about them. Grace is just beside herself that she gets to carry a basket with flowers and ribbon. I ordered cocktail napkins to match the ones that I had from our wedding. In fact, I have nearly 100 black napkins left from our wedding. I ordered 100 ivory napkins that have our 10 year anniversary on them. So I plan on mixing them together. So, if you look closely you might see the difference.

I have been designing our invitations and they are almost finished except for the printing, so expect yours in the coming weeks. I have showed a few people one of the video montages that I have made for our celebration. I had good reviews. I am really looking forward to this event and milestone in our lives.
