Carving a pumpkin

Are you kidding me mom, I do NOT want to stick my hand in there!!!!
EWWWW, Sticky Stuff.... Ok I touch one little seed, but that is ALL!
YEAH gross stuff to play with.... OH MIAH.... Hehe!!
What a great job James! ( Daddy did all the carving but James was a wonderful supervisor and gave great instructions!)

What fun it is to get a squishy with our hands...or not! This was another first for our little Miss Miah and boy did I have fun, I mean did THEY have fun. We went with a simple pattern this year, but the best part was trying to get Miah to put her hands in the pumpkin. She was having no part of that and would hardly touch the seeds I pulled out. It took a while to convince her it was ok, but I have got to say she want not at all impressed with the sticky squishy stuff at all. James on the other hand could not get enough and offered to help with sisters pumpkin too. He was all about the experience and loved every second of the gooey mess.

My kiddos

A loud screech tests the strength of our glass windows, as my son darts down the hall with a flimsy white cloth. The ever coveted lovie is waved like a banner from his hands and his smile says it all.... I am bigger than you are. No matter, Miah has learned that this ear piercing sound will have mama running with panic to ensure her chicks are ok and all limbs accounted for. It does not hurt to know that the moment mama sees big brother with said lovie he will inevitably get a tounge lashing and the prized item will be returned. Now this happening once a day would test any ones mommy, but this happens no less than two or three times a day. Oh happy happy, joy, joy! To be fair Miah gets James only she is not so sly about it, nope she just walks up and clocks him in the head with a wooden block. The blow this week was hard enough to send my six year old into a total melt down and he still has a very sore spot on his head. I have found my self telling them to cut it out or I will stop the car, and on countless times told them to be nice to each other.... They are without a doubt brother and sister with all the ups, downs, and sideways antics they can come up with, but I LOVE IT, even when I want to crawl up and hide from it. Because when it is good it is really really good and the love they show each other is a once in a life time kind of thing that only siblings could share. When it is bad it is very rarely really bad and only boils down to child's play. The age difference between them is a blessing and a challenge all at the same time, but I would not change a thing and I am so grateful that they have one another. Enough rambling... here are a couple of the really good times ( which is what we have most of the time) of James and Miah today just hanging out waiting for me to go somewhere else with me camera.

Peas Please

I do try to feed my kids healthy food, but I admit that I have run out of ideas on what to give them for snacks due to the age difference I can only give them certain things that they can both eat. SOooo I did what I wanted and gave them peas. Yep I feed my children peas like I would feed them popcorn and they loved it. These were frozen sweet peas that I covered with water and microwaved for three min. cooled them down and then in a blink of an eye they were gone. The kids devoured them like candy and then wanted more. Hmmm quick, easy, and good for them, add to that no begging at dinner time to get them to eat veggies and we have a winner!!

My Favorite Time of Year

It is my favorite time of year.... Holiday time!!! To me the season of fun, laughter, and family begins with a trip to the pumpkin patch, and this year my heart is so full. The last two years I said that Miah will be here next year, but this year..... My baby girl was the cutest pumpkin in the patch. Oh course her big brother was the most handsome!

I had the best time today watching Miah soak in the atmosphere, she loved every second of it. With that being said it was really difficult to get pictures, she just wanted to go,go,go!! James also had a great time, you know catching bugs, trying to destroy a pumpkin or two. Not to mention chasing little sister and riding a few rides. This is our fourth year at this patch and I have got to tell you it is the best one I have found. First of all it is free, the rides and bounce houses are free to do as well. They have vendors with reasonable prices, but you can bring a pick nick lunch if you like and eat at one of the many tables provided. Really if you choose not to you could go all day and not spend a dime, but I personally love to buy the tiny pumpkins for the kids to carry around the house and draw happy faces on, and I love kettle corn... SOOOO GOOD! What I love most is the family fun, we all can do this together and enjoy each others company, throw a little hay around and take a few pictures (if you can catch them), these are the memories I want my kids to have, the moments where the rest of the world goes away and we are just us.... Having Fun! Enjoy the pictures and if you can find a few hours to visit a pumpkin patch.
