Fall Break begins...It's pumpkin carving time!!!

I just love this time of year and Addie really did too! This year and age was good b/c she's finally able to really do and understand things more. Now daddy's home more so we are able to enjoy it A LOT more:)
I was really excited about carving a pumkin this year b/c I couldn't wait for Addie to do it for the 1st time. Little did I know she wouldn't be as excited about it as I was. lol! Once we took off the top, she stuck her hand down into the pumpkin, then it was pretty much over! She didn't really like how it felt, only the way it looked afterwords! Oh, well, maybe next year! I bought a Disney carving kit b/c she's so into Mickey Mouse. She loved her daddy's MM when it was done. It took me longer w/the Minnie, but I finally managed to finish it a couple of days later. Thank goodness for fall break!

Beginning the carving...
Here's mine!

A day @ the Pumpkin Patch...Honey Suckle Hill Farm!

Addie was very excited about going to the pumpkin patch this year. She really didn't know what it was until she got there. She was just excited to know that we would spend the day w/her buddies, Knox & Bella! We were celebrating his 1st bday and Bella's 2nd. It ended up being a pretty chilly day, but fun! The kids all still enjoyed getting to play.

Addie acting silly before getting ready to leave. Mommy's little "punkin"!

Spending a little time w/the birthday boy and doing lots of activities.

She didn't even know these girls, but joined them like she did!

Ready for cake!

Bella's turn!

Now Addie:)

Picking up where I left off...Summer ends & Fall begins...

Happy Fall, Ya'll!
Wow, I cannot believe I haven't posted in so long!  I told a friend I would get back to it while we were off for all these snow days.It's really hard finding time with a 2 yr old around. Between working, potty training, constantly getting milk, playing, tea parties, temper tantrums, singing, baths, Xmas shopping, going, FBooking (of course) and whatever else she keeps me doing, it's really hard to have time to get it done. She wears us out!!! So here goes trying to catch up...
The saying is "All good things must come to an end"...with that being said, our summer  finally came to an end! We did lots of fun things, but it is always good getting back into some sort of routine. Addie's birthday kinda finalizes the summer because it's at the end of August plus school has started and it's back to reality!
The GREAT thing about the new school year was Addie beginning a new daycare/preschool. She now goes to the First United Methodist Church in Gallatin or "NAPS" as they call it... WE love it! Her teachers are great and she's made lots of new friends. Most importantly, she's learning A LOT and they haven't had the turnover problem like other daycares.
Here are a few pics that began our fall:

Are you ready for some football???
Go Titans! You definitely know it's fall when you see the hedge apples on the ground!

Traveling to TN Tech to see cousin Rachel's new apartment.

My "little" niece has grown so much!

Ready for the pumpkin patch!

Princess Addie turns 2!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had a great time and it was a beautiful day for Addie's birthday party. We had it @ Nana & Papa's "Party Palace". It was a Disney Princess party and she really like all the decorations and goodies. I think she owns just about everything now that's Disney Princess! Addie was really excited about her birthday and sang "happy birthday" to herself for over a week. She's still singing to herself:)

We had family and friends come and celebrate w/us and they helped make her day great! All the kiddos played for a bit and then it was time to eat hamburgers and hotdogs. Then, we later had cake and ice-cream. Addie was exhausted (not to mention no nap). Her mood was great, but she just gave out right before we were ready to open presents. She almost fell asleep eating the ice-cream. We went ahead and let her nap and let the kids open her gifts. They loved that! Addie got to see everything later and played when she woke about 45 minutes later.

She's still really into babies and princess things. I found her the cutest wooden baby doll bed, highchair and rocking chair from a consignment sale...she L.O.V.E.S. them! Now, she uses them and her princess table to set all the dolls around for dinner or a tea party. It's the cutest thing:)
Thanks to everyone who helped make this day GREAT!!!

I had to show Addie @ 1yr to show how much she has changed.

~My big girl!~

Mommy's sweet princess:)

She finally gave out!

Back up again and ready to ride on the gator.
