Happy Harvest Party!

Well, I sent my invitation to my one best friend in the whole world, and he wasn't able to come. boo! But, I had a great time at the Harvest Party anyway. I played games, jumped on the obstacle course, ate candy. 4 pieces!! - can you even believe Mom let me have that much - she didn't! Dad did! Wooohooo! She asked if I wanted to ride home early with her and E2 - are you kidding? I just knew I could talk Dad into letting me have more candy. The bad news was that they put the obstacle course away early, so I didn't get to go one last time on it like I wanted. boo!

E2 dressed up as a pumpkin (the cutest pumpkin I have ever seen) and I was Sleeping Beauty. I was going to be Rapunzel, but Mom was afraid the hair would get in the way. Either way, I was a princess and I was beautiful, if I do say so myself.

See for yourself....

Pooh and Roo Jack-o-Lanterns

We carved our pumpkins last night and it was SO much fun. I got to pick the pictures and even got to help Daddy with our Pooh pumpkin. I used the poker and even the little cutter. Daddy did all the tricky parts, but I sure did a lot (and man, that is hard work!). I think they turned out great!! What do YOU think?

What's she thinking?

My little sister is a little on the silly side. She loves to climb on things but lately, she has had some problems getting down. What is so silly is that I hear her squeal from the other room, so Mom and I come running in and she is usually scared and hanging on for dear life - and there is only an inch before she reaches the floor. She's acting like she's a cliff hanger. Silly girl. The other silly thing she does now is lay down with Mindy on the floor and give her kisses. She LOVES that cat! I sure hope she doesn't have an allergy like me because she will be so broken hearted. She follows the cat around and looks for her all the time. She just found one of my baby books that is a "Where's Kitty" book - you have to find the little kitty on each page. She LOVES that book! I think her nickname should be Kat. (giggle)

OUR New Bedroom

I keep hearing Sissy say that her new bedroom this and her new bedroom that....I'm here to tell you that I specifically heard Mommy and Daddy say that it is OUR new bedroom. So as soon as I prove to Mommy that I am a good sleeper without a bedtime bottle, I'm in! This was the 3rd night of not making a peep at night, so hopefully it'll be soon. Mommy said something about getting a tent for the top of my crib so that I don't climb out of it like I did the playpen. Not sure I like the idea of that or not, but if it gets me into the new room, I'm all for it! It's my favorite place to be - pretty, pink and Sissy (my favorite person) is there. What could be better?! Here I am (in the pictures below) trying out Sissy's bed. She has some extra blankets on it to stay warm and I sure thougth it looked nice and snuggly. I agree with Sissy - it'd be fun to actually sleep in the same bed together! ((hugs)) E2

My new bedroom

Last night was the first night I got to sleep in my new bedroom. It was a little hard to get used to at first. Dad was awesome though, and he came in and laid down with me until I fell asleep. Some things seem the same, like my bed seems about the same, but other things are very different. For one thing, I have gotten pretty used to having lil E in the room with me. Mom says that when she has adjusted to not having her bedtime bottle, she'll be glad to move her in with me. So I hope she sleeps all the way through the night without a peep so we can move her in tomorrow! Maybe she'll even want to sleep in bed WITH me?!?!  Mom and Dad are talking about getting her a big girl bed since she can escape from the playpen now. I guess they figure it is only a matter of time before the little climber attempts to climb out of her crib - and lemme tell you - that first step's a doozie!  I'm pretty sure that all of Noblesville will know if she tries that!

Today was a pretty good day. Besides working on our room most of the day, we got to walk down to the pumpkin patch. Ok, Mom and Dad walked, and me and lil E rode in the wagon. I wanted to walk, too, but something about traffic and no shoulders? I don't know what shoulders have to do with me walking since I walk on my feet, but parents are always right - or so they keep telling me. Here are some pictures from our fun trip to Spencers.

On our walk over...
How about this one??
 It sure is a big one - ugh! Dad, I think you're gonna have to carry it!

 Kinda sounds like a watermelon or bongo drum when I rat-a-tat-tap on it.

All E2 wanted to do was run, but she occassionally slowed down enough to rub the pumpkins.

 On the wagon ride to the little country store and through the woods.

What a great day!!! I love fall, but I love winter better! I can't wait to make snow balls. We already visited the Christmas aisles at Lowes - such fun!!!!! Love to all, E1.

 Here is a view from the hallway into the girls' bedroom.

My Mom bought a chandelier that came out of someone else's house. I wasn't sure this was a good idea. It didn't look very fancy when she opened the box and showed it to me. But, she painted and decorated it and it looks very fancy now! I should have known when I saw crystal beads and pink ribbon that it would turn out perfect for a girl like me (and E2, too). Check out the before and after pictures. I haven't actually seen it in my new room because we are waiting until it is almost finished before I look inside. I want to be wow'd and surprised. Since we are getting carpet soon, it shouldn't be much longer. :) 
Love, E1

Misc Pictures

Just some random pictures of my silly baby sister. Just look at her. This is one of her favorite things to do now. Empty out all the toys in the tub and then play in the tub. She is so silly. She's not wearing any pants here because she got banana all over them at dinner. She likes to smoosh her food up and play with it. Sometimes she even smears it in her hair - eeeewwwww!!!

Here she is in her new cube chair - it's awesome! The only thing wrong with it is that Dad and Mom only bought one, so there isn't one for me. boo!

What's This?

 I have been learning that there are names for all different parts of our bodies – and I knew I had a belly, but there is something ON IT! What IS that down there? I can’t quite bend over far enough to actually see it….whoa! I nearly did a flip that time. Good thing I’ve got fancy feet and am quick on my toes. I about lost it. Whew. Now let me sit down and see if I can get a better view that way. Nope. My belly just pushes out even farther. Maybe if I suck in and tighten my abs – you know, like Mommy does when she’s trying to fit into that pair of jeans that just came out of the dryer (and after she just ate a pound of candy corn). Yep, that did it. Why, it’s a little button – at least that’s what Mommy called it. A belly button. I wonder what it does if I push it? or maybe pull it? Hmmm – not much of anything. I think it’s defective. Even if it doesn’t do much of anything, I still am amazed by it. God sure did make our bodies interesting….  ((hugs)) E2
