I made this from this recipe. I did the variation with
the cinnamon and didn't add any of the milk products.

Hangin' in the Patch

Yesterday we went to the pumpkin patch with
Ruby's preschool.

The kids got to pick their own pumpkins.
Ruby and I were really into the green ones.

There was also a hayride.

Ruby was really happy.
Wade kept asking me if we could go home
and take a nap. Go figure.

Latest sew

I made this for Ruby from another one of those crazy
Japanese craft books. It sure would be easier if I could read
Japanese.... the pockets were a little tricky.
Ruby declared "I really don't like that", but I convinced her
to wear it to school anyway.
I sure wish it was my size.

Wade's first haircut

Wade got his first haircut the other day courtesy of Grandma Bev.
Doesn't he look older and more sophisticated?
I do miss the big ball of hair a little but as most of you
noticed it was getting a little crazy.
Thanks Grandma!

Ruby's castle

Ruby made out well today. This castle came from Auntie Missy and
Uncle Kenny, the pony came from Grandma Bev and Grandpa Dan. The
guard dog came from Zoe.

The kids had a blast bowling. Ruby's been asking for a bowling party
for at least 8 months. The girl has vision.

Bear wearing clothes

Ruby made this outfit out of paper for the bear. The arm holes and skirt were made without tape.

Color fairies

The bird is going to land on the flower and eat the worm.

Gnome asleep in bed

Ruby made the sheets, the lamp (ball), and the floor for this gnome,
plus gave him his fish toy, which "he cuddles and loves."

Greg's Work BBQ

Greg's work had their annual BBQ on Sunday.
This year it was at the zoo.

The kids got to eat hot dogs and Popsicles.
(Notice Wade's hair doppelganger Mia-same age, same fro)

There was a three legged race.

And a hulahoop contest.

We had a really good time. There were lots of nice families.
I was impressed with them for doing something so family oriented.
Go Jive!
