(Here are a couple pictures that I took of the little cherubs waiting to see the doctor.)
Dr Godfrey is very happy with both of their progress! We just laugh... we never would have guessed that our kids would be considered "little".

Kaitlyn and I celebrated our birthdays while we were in Oregon with my family. Yes, I have finally turned the big 3-0. (I'm a little sad that I can no longer tease Anthony about still being in my 20's, while he's an old man in his 30's!)
My mom made Kaitlyn a really cute 'hat box' cake (she did quite a number on it), and she actually participated in ripping some of the paper off of her gifts. She got really restless and kept trying to crawl off the table, so I had to put her in her high chair seat to keep her in one place. Talon was pretty excited with Sissy's new toys, too! He was being so sweet to help her figure out how they work! ;0)

I finally found the humidifiers. Decisions. Decisions. After 'shopping' for one that seemed like it would do the job (without spending my kids' college fund), we headed to the check stand. Every time we passed an item that even resembled food, Talon would say "Eat? Snack?". I tried to find something remotely healthy without a lot of sugar (since it was almost 3am). Ah, ha! Ritz crackers with cheese. I paid and we left the store. It was FREEZING outside! Just as we were getting ready to pull out of the parking lot, Talon reminded me... "Crackers?". As I opened the lid, I realized they had already been opened and half of them already eaten. PERFECT! I again had to get him out of his car seat and go into the store. Wouldn't you know it, we had grabbed the last container of crackers. With the help of the clerk, we searched every check stand. Not a single container of the cheese crackers left. I gave up and we left with cookies. ~sigh!!
We finally got home around 3:30am. I think I finally got to bed around 5am. Of course, Kaitlyn was up bright and early the next morning.
This is my little trooper (holding tight to his monkey and getting ready to go to sleep after a very long night!).

Notice how, in the second one, Kaitlyn can pretty much hold her own against her brother when she really wants something. What an entertaining duo we have. They crack me up!

"No, Talon, it's a pumpkin!"
(This is where I just shake my head. A losing battle!)
There's just something about the Fall! It may be raining and chilly outside, but with the molasses cookies baking, apple cider simmering on the stove, the pumpkin candles burning, getting warm by the fireplace...
Ahhh, it feels so homey!

It made about 3 1/2 jars, and actually tasted pretty good. However, with as much garlic as I put in it.... let's just say I wont be taking any to work for lunch!!

This video cracks me up. I had just got done feeding Kaitlyn her breakfast and got her cleaned up, and she saw that Talon had dropped some food on his tray, so she reached over to try and eat every bit she could. We really do feed this child!
Kaitlyn, of course, had to be in on the action.

We got lost in the maize a few times as we each took turns taking the lead (25 minutes... yeah right!). I don't know how many times we ended up back a the beginning. Finally, we got smart and grabbed the map, but still resorted to asking for help at the end when we realized the map was even a little off. The kids had fun playing amongst the pumpkins, and we had just as much fun (or more) taking pictures of them. What a fun time!
