Fall Weekend

I love this one of Payton all upside down

She is just way too cute.

Um, wow. They look alike!

Maybe one of my favorite pictures ever, she's so cute.

trying to push Mommy on the swing while she drinks some water.

So proud of herself that she can pump her legs and swing high all by herself now.
Payton had a soccer game on Saturday morning and scored her first goal! She was so proud of herself!  Well technically it was her second goal, but it was the first one going in the right direction!  Afterwards we drove to Charlottesville to Carter Mountain Orchard, not so much to get apples but just to be outside and see the view, it's so very pretty up there.  We picked a few apples, and more importantly ate apple cider donuts and caramel apple cookies. We brought home Bodo's bagels too, so good!

Today we went to the park and carved pumpkins, I forgot to take a picture of the pumpkins before it got dark but Payton wanted a mermaid, Payton picked Mickey Mouse for Reagan since she couldn't decide, Tung carved the Buffalo Bill's logo in his and I put music notes in mine.  Both girls actually pulled most of their seeds out.  Then we made homemade Johnny Dee sandwiches just like at Macado's, though not the real thing, they were pretty darn good for homemade!

Pumpkin Patch

Excited to get back on the bus after lunch

running to the tree in the clearing to wear them out so they would nap well once they got back to school
Last Wednesday I went with Payton on her first field trip to the Pumpkin Patch.  It was a nice day and I had so much fun going with all the kids.  They all liked riding on the bus probably more than picking out a pumpkin.  They ate a picnic lunch there also, so the parents that went helped serve the lunch.  There were 5 parents out of 20 kids that went.  The kids were so cute picking out their pumpkin, they had bags with all their names on them so they could keep track of who's pumpkin was whose.

while waiting for the other class to get there, Miss Ann walked them around the Christmas trees and they felt the different kinds, prickly, soft...they had a hard time staying in line

This line is a little better :)

So big!

All of a sudden Payton is getting so big!  Friday she said her tooth hurt and turns out it is a little wiggly, so her first tooth is a little loose.  Yesterday she shows us how she knows how to tie her tap shoes.  I've showed her some how to tie, but didn't think it was enough yet for her to know how to do it herself, but she said she has watched her pre-school teacher Miss Ann tie too, and now all of a sudden can do it herself.  Tonight she rode her bicycle all the way down the road and back, normally she's too tired and we end up having to push the bike back while she walks, but tonight she rode it the whole way.  She's getting too big!  But I love watching her learn so much and talk to us about what she knows.

Payton reading to Reagan

Love her hair!

I love this one, they were so cute sitting together

Payton read books to Reagan tonight before we went to sleep, so I played with the settings on my camera and took some pictures

Preschool picnic

Eating dessert with her friend Thomas and his sister Elizabeth

Reagan eating a cupcake

Reagan looking like she's having the time of her life...haha, she SO wants to be a big kid!
Tonight was the picnic at Payton's school.  It was a lot of fun to see her run around with all her friends.  The funny thing is a lot of them were boys, they'd all run after her yelling Payton come back!  She knows EVERYONE!  The little 2 and 3 year olds, everyone her age, she was even telling us who's parents belonged to who.  She is definitely a little socialite and it was so much fun to see her with everyone.

new camera

Reagan is showing us her ice cream is all gone
I got my new camera last night and took a few pics of the girls to test it out

Payton being cute

Apparently she was getting tired of pictures
Her trademark pose
Payton doesn't wear jeans much, at least not on her own free will, but one morning this week, she picked this outfit out on her own and looked so darn cute!

Corn Maze

Last Saturday we went to the corn maze, it was HUGE, way too big for the girls, but we had a fun time anyway.  We went to Yoder's and bought lots of spices, candy and other stuff first.  It was a beautiful day and we all really enjoyed being outside.
