A New View of the World - 10/27/10

This was the funniest thing ever. I caught her in this pose, and she stayed that way long enough for me to get a picture of it.

It's her 5th day crawling and she is sure out to explore.

Linnaea is 7 months old - 10/22/10

She is learning lots from Gavin and he loves teaching her, like how to ride his scooter.
here they are hug wrestling
She LOVES Mommy and likes to be held often.
She also says "Muh Muh" all the time.
[Gavin tells her "I'm not Mama, I'm Gavin"]
And barely making the cut at 11 pm, she actually began crawling the day she turned 7m!
[she also loves playing with Gavin's toys by herself when he goes to bed. shhh]

Pickn' our Pumpkin in a Patch - 10/20/10

The children and I drove out to the country, even turned left at a Mennonite Church, and went out to a farm to pick our own pumpkin:
Gavin picking Mr. Pumpkin
Linnaea sizing up Mr. Pumpkin
Enjoyed playing at the farm
"Scary" Mr. Pumpkin from Gavin's sketch
[I said it was "cute" and was told it wasn't cute, it was scary. Dale was then told that he had to make a silly one, because we already had a scary one]

Down on the Farm - 10/20/10

We went to pick our own pumpkin, but had more fun than that:

more october pictures

Linnaea helped me take the clothes down to the washer and rode back up in the basket!
Gavin helped Dale make a pumpkin pie from a pumpkin we bought.
Gavin and Dale also came home from a run to the store with caramel for apples.

We went to the old train station from 1890's, saw the old engine on display, and browsed antique shops, carefully.
