Teagan and Kade's BIG SCOOP!!

They are going to be a BIG SISTER and BIG COUSIN in April 2011!!
Brian said no one would get this "secret" message (that I stayed up until the wee hours one night creating) ....but I knew my trusty readers would spot it right away! We are delighted and eagerly waiting to meet this little one!

October Days

I love October and don't want these busy days to end! We spent last weekend with Melissa and Kade and visted another pumpkin patch. This weekend and next are jam packed with festivals, birthday celebrations and Halloween parties. Here are a few of our favorite moments from this month with just ten more days to go!

I thought this pic was so sweet of Daddy & Tea on the wagon out to the pumpkin patch field. The sun was so beautiful and looked like a halo behind them.

Teagan's First Haircut

At seventeen months old, and with Daddy threatening to take matters into his own scissor-wielding hands it was time for Tea's first haircut! This was bittersweet as it truly marked the end of her babyhood for me. But the happy news is those curls which delight me so look to be here to stay!

We took a journey to Pigtails & Crewcuts with Auntie Melissa who proved to be the perfect videographer. I expected some resistance and even a few tears from Little Mouse but she was super happy playing with their train table then taking a seat in the 1950's style taxi cab. At the end she got a lollipop and her choice of a prize from the treasure chest. I knew immediately what my fashionista would go for - a bracelet!

P&C made this so special taking a photo and saving a lock of hair which is going into a special silver holder from Gram and Grandpa Kelly
Stylist Michelle explains she is going to use "a little drop of rain"

The Pumpkin Man!

Welcome to fall everyone! I love this time of year for its crisp, cool weather, warm and inviting colors, apple picking, festivals, corn mazes, pumpkin patches, and the gorgeous leaves here that change into vibrant reds, oranges and yellows. Fall also hosts Halloween and Thanksgiving, two of my favorite holidays!

Brian, Kade, Teagan & I had a great time over the weekend visiting a local pumpkin patch and corn maze. Tea was simply not in the mood for pictures but Kade was so sweet and let his Auntie capture a few precious memories from the day.

I love this little guy!
We did not mention Thanksgiving here...noooo
"The Yeader" (read: The Leader) of our family as we wound through the corn maze
I snuck one picture in of an unsuspecting Tea
Kade decided he is a Pumpkin Man and went out to the field to pick his pumpkins....

And then sold them to us in his store. But buyer beware: a baby pumpkin from The Pumpkin Man costs $50!!!!! Ouch!
More fall adventures coming soon......
