Pumpkin Carving

We finally sat down and carved our pumpkins. It was a lot of fun. The kids picked out the faces for their own pumpkins, we found a website where they could chose which eyes, nose and mouth they wanted and then you could print. That was a task in itself! We had a good time and both helped more than last year, not quite as grossed out this year.

Tooth Fairy!

Well we had a very important event occur at our house last night. Emmah lost her first teeth! And yes I said teeth!! Her front too teeth have been loose from quite awhile now, but not quite loose enough to fall out. Well, daddy took a look last night and with a little conviencing they were out! She was a little concerned about how she was going to eat, and about the tooth fairy coming into her room.

In the morning she was pleasantly surprised and overjoyed with the $2 the tooth fairy had left her. She was also very intrigued by the fairy dust she had left!

Football Game

Emmah got to take a very exciting trip this past weekend. Tob and I, along with more family and friends took Emmah to the Hillsdale vs. GVSU football game. She is her cousin Ross' BIGGEST fan! She cheers for him even when he's not playing! We waited til the last minute to tell her where we were going and once she found out she was very excited to go. After we got past the loud fireworks we all had a great time. We got to Ross make a couple of good plays, you should have heard her when they announced his name on the loud speaker! All in all it was a great time!

Pumpkin Patch

On Friday Emmah went on her first field trip to the Post Family Farm! Daddy got to go along too! They had a really good time. Riding in the train, picking out pumpkins, and of course the hayride. But the hayride proved to be the most exciting part, due to the fact that the wagon lost a tire, while they were on it! They enjoyed themselve though and that is what counts. She got to have a donut and pick out a pumpkin. The parents even got to get a pumpkin and a doughnut. Thankfully Tob brought some home for Jake and I!

Well we made it through are first parent-teacher conference and nobody cried (meaning mom). She is doing great which is what we hoped to hear. She is right where she should be academically and is adjusting pretty well to school in general. She has her very first field trip on Friday to the Pumpkin Patch, don't worry the camera is going with dad, I just hope he remembers to take some pictures.

Both kids have stuffy noses, so they aren't feeling great. Which means earlier bedtimes and some cranky kids! What can you do it's that time of year. We are hoping to go pick apples this weekend and Emmah has her last soccer game. We are also headed to GVSU vs. Hillsdale football game on Saturday night. This will be Emmah first college game and she gets to see Ross!! It should be fun.

Okay if from the title you didn't guess Emmah scored her very first soccer goal on Saturday! She was so excited. Jumping up and down and looking for high fives from just about everyone! GG, Mimi, and Papa even got to witness this joyous occasion. She is really enjoying soccer, just not the cold morning weather she has to play in!

As for school things are going well, she is really enjoying it. She started Baggy Books, where she brings home a book each week and has to read it then reads it to a parent and gets a new book. She is excited to be reading and just can't wait to get a new book.

Jake is up to his usual trouble, and of course passing along a sweet smile to get out of it! The most interesting part about him is that every time you put him to bed whether it is for a nap or bedtime he changes his clothes!! It is always a surprise to see what he will be wearing each time!
