Abby has had a lot of choices of what to be for Halloween. Her first option was a Halloween Pumpkin Fairy...so cute. Until we tried the outfit on. Not going to work. It was way too small.
Then my friend Ruby loaned us her pumpkin outfit that her son Jack wore when he was about her age. She cried and cried.
So I looked and looked today at the store. I couldn't find anything and didn't want to spend any money....so tonight I made her a little outfit. It is cute and she can wear it without crying. I Hope.
I feel like this is a bit like Goldilocks and the 3 bears. I am definitely hoping that the 3rd time is the charm and just right. (Plus it has little froggies in the pattern and Abby loves frogs right now.)
Yesterday we decided to take Abb to the pumpkin patch. We want to start creating fun family outings with her and she might be too young to remember but all 3 of us had fun.
Abby's favorite thing to do is watch other people. So she loved watching all the kids run around getting their pumpkins. She didn't like the sound of the corn air cannon. Everytime it went off she started crying.
As we walked around Abby became very excited when we saw a chicken walk by. So we took a little time to hang out and watch her. Then another one came by and wow she was excited. That was the first time I have ever seen her point. After paying for our pumpkins we fed the goats a little and she was memorized by them. I know that next year she is really going to enjoy going to the pumpkin patch.
We ended up getting 3 pumpkins, a daddy, a mommy and a baby. Hopefully we can carve them before next Saturday.

I think the reason that I am not keeping up with my blog like I should....is because I am just plain old tired. I notice that my writing style is greatly compromised and I want write fun and cute stories. I guess writing something is better than nothing.
After going to Red Top Mountain--Abby & I went to my mom's for a week and had such blast. We ended up going to the Pumpkin Patch and drinking coffee. LOL Abby is already addicted. Grandma and Abby were also able to spend a lot of quality time together and they really enjoyed it. Momma was no longer the favorite by the end of the week. Grandma definitely was...one of the reasons is that my mom fed and fed Abby. I cannot believe how much she ate while we were there. (It didn't help that we both got colds when we came home and couldn't eat much and had to start all over again.)
However, by the time daddy came to pick us up...even grandma was no longer the favorite. It was daddy again all the way.
Love you MOm & Rich. Thanks for the wonderful week.
