Little Explorers

The museum has a great hands on exhibit for kids with a tee-pee, pioneer house, and working waterway that teaches about irrigation. The favorite, by far, was the dinosaur dig.

And just because she's so cute....even when stuffing her face

And at least somebody liked Brooklyn's Halloween costume

Fall Fun

Painting pumpkins- both kids did a great job covering every square inch.
Miraculously Brooklyn didn't even try to eat the paint!

Attempting to feeding the ducks at the lake.
It was a windy day, but I thought this was a good location for pictures.

Though our house leaves a lot to be desired, the yard is great! We've had tons of leaves to play in and there is a fun tree in the backyard that weeps down making a perfect hiding place.

Well we finally have gotten internet at home, so {hopefully} you'll see more postings here.

Halloween was fun this year. Aunty Becki sent us books about fall & Halloween last year. This year Isaac loved them and re-read them a lot. He especially liked the idea of getting candy! But he would not wear his Thomas costume....until we saw the preschool kids at the YMCA trick or treating to the different desks/offices and getting candy. Then he was all for it!! Brooklyn, on the other hand, did not like the tu-tu I made for her ladybug costume. And Halloween was no different- all we heard was screams as soon as she saw it. So she went as Brooklyn in Black {I did shover her into it to at least get one picture}

Our street had only one neighbor with lights on, so we went there. Afterward our coversation walking home went like this:
Isaac: That Daddy so kind to give us Candy
Sarah: That was kind. Do you want to trick or treat some more and get more candy
Isaac: We trick or treat, but I have enough candy.

He is such a sweet little guy!! We went to a church that was doing trunk or treat just in time for them to be finishing up. Which was fine because all the kids wanted to see was the firetruck & ambulance. The police that were directing traffic had there lights on so we may have sat on the curb and watched them for a while. Then we headed home to eat "trick or treats".

Even Champ got a treat for being such a good boy. It was a lot of fun & I'm hoping next year will be even better!

Sing'n in the Rain

Isaac has taken to singing throughout the day, and usually at a very loud volume. I love the way he repeats the songs he's heard over & over.

The favorite by far is Old MacDonald. It's on one song repeat in the car, because that's all they want to listen to. Brooklyn requests "E-I-E-I-Oh, E-I-E-I-Oh" over & over again as fast as she can say it until you agree.
{last week she fell asleep in the car and when I woke her up to bring her in,
she said "E-I-E-I-Oh, E-I-E-I-Oh" in a questioning tone
before she even opened her eyes}
And according to Isaac Cows are always the first {and sometime only animal} allowed on "Old Ick-Donald's Farm" Brooklyn always requests a pig.

some of my other favorites:

Itsy-bitsy pider when up the water spout. Down came the rain & washed the pider out. Out came the sun and dried up all the rain and the itsy-bitsy pider went up the water spout. Down came the rain & washed the pider out....... {poor spider never gets back up}

Twinkle Twinkle ittle star, like a diamond in the sky. Twinkle twinkle ittle , like a diamond in the sky.....
