At School

So, here's a couple pictures from today at school. They had some special Halloween activities that the moms were invited to join. We had a great time, and it was really nice to be a part of what she did at school. Thank you so much Merydwen and Anna for sharing your pictures!

Mi Mi & Jon / Parade 2




1st Parade

So, today we were in our first parade, the Kerr County Fair parade. We walked behing the MOPS float, which won 1st Place in the Non-Profit division! Not too bad for our 1st float ever, although I am not sure if there were any other contestants :)
Caleb (the giraffe) let Haley (the strawberry) ride in his wagon, which went really well. Haley even waved at some of the crowd. I think she had a great time! Below is a couple pictures of the float and Haley in the parade. Maybe I will have some better ones to post later.

Who needs water?

So, the other day Bryan noticed there was a large amount of water coming out of the concrete in the front of our house. So, after 4 hours of doing what plumbers do, including 2 holes to the house, the plumber concluded we have a major leak. Below is a video of Haley enjoying the once small waterfall. It reminded me of what a friend brought up at Bible study the other day. She was talking about the economy and how it was also bad sometime in the 80's (can't remember the date) and how her parents may have struggled, but she had no memory of it. Anyway, as we were stressing about the damage, how much it will cost, etc., it made me smile watching Haley, as it was definitely the higlight of her day!

Sea World again

So, we went to Sea World again, after learning Elmo is making a special Halloween appearance. We still think she's a little young, but she definitely enjoyed the Sesame Street show. Here's a couple of pictures, and an extra one of her painting.





She enjoys painting at school, so I thought I would let her try it at home. I don't think it went so well. She tried to eat the paint and stick the brush in her ear, nose and mouth, as you can tell :)

Our little strawberry


So, for Halloween we're obviously going to be a strawberry. GG helped me make the costume, otherwise I'd still be working on it. Thank you! I just had to take a picture. We still have some finishing touches, but I am really happy with it! And we only spent $8 :)

New wheels




Since Haley loved the car at her school, Papa got her some new wheels. He couldn't wait until Christmas, so she got it the other day. She loves it! I've been hiding it around nap time to avoid the struggle, as she doesn't want to get out of it. She knows it's gone and walks around looking for her "car, car".
