Later on, after we were home, and they'd had thier bath, we were reading some books. I had gotten them the new Maurice Sendack, his very first pop-up book, it's halloweenish, and I wasn't quite sure the little ones would understand it, but Leah picked right up on it! There is a baby that enters a haunted house, and as he goes through the different rooms of the haunted house he comes upon a different monster, but he is not scared, he is looking for his mommy, so each page shows him either sticking his binky in the monsters mouth, or unwinding the mummy, etc. But all the way through, there is a bubble for the baby, he is calling, "MOMMY?" Ofcourse, I am reading this to them, and Leah is like, "OH NO! Where's sha Mom? MOMMY? A Mommy go? Oh, der Mommy is!" I was so shocked to have her understand what was going on in the book, a book with so few words at that. I think I had to go back through it about 4 times they liked it sooooo much!
Another one we got was, 'I SAW AN ANT ON THE RAILROAD TRACK', more for Beau, than Leah, ofcourse. It was a realy witty rhyming picture book, and he loved it.
CHECK OUT "MOMMY?"

FINALLY! I finished painting Beau's room. It is a 'Finding Nemo' theme. But, he also is really into dinoaurs right now, as well as trains and planes. So boy! He was so thrilled to see it all done. So glad I am done! We now have dinosaurs crawling up the wall, fishies swimming, airplanes hanging from the ceiling, and choo choo trains everywhere!

We found this great Pumpkin Patch this year! It was right down Beau's alley. They had a quarter scale train, which took us out to the patch of pumpkins, he loved it! All the kids had fun, but he just could not get over the train! As it dropped us off, he ran back, running along the track watching it leave, we had to call him back! The main attraction was the train ride, but the kids were able to pick a small pumpkin as well. They certainly aren't no carver pumpkins, but to the kids, they are perfect!

Everyday, Beau asks me, "Mom, can I go dig in the jungle? Can I? Can I, Mom? Can I go to the jungle?" Well, let me tell you what the 'jungle' is. It is this tremendously large tree in our front yard. Jack, recently, cut back the branches on the bottom, so that I could fill in under the tree with dirt and plant some of my columbine seeds ( since they are supposed to enjoy acidic soil). But...as you can see, I may never be able to do so...

That's my girl! Positioning the ball to kick a goal!
Drew has made a total of 4 goals in her first 3 games, and is doing such a good job staying on the ball. So much so that she tries too hard to play goalie when she should be on the ball guiding it to the opposing teams goal! She definitely has defense down. That's my Drew!
