Little Pebbles had so much fun tonight. She had WAY too much candy, but that's what it is all about. It was cute to watch her put candy in her bag and she also said, "Thank You," several times. I'm proud of my polite, little trick or treater. We had a great day!

Playground Fun

We spent the weekend in Missouri for the Barker family reunion. There was a playground near our pavilion and Stella wanted to be over there constantly. She didn't mind that she was the smallest kid there.

The Sorter

Stella is obsessed with sorting. For the past few months, we've noticed that she sorts almost anything she touches. She rearranges her food several times while eating and her toys are always on the move. It's funny to watch. Tonight, I noticed her making several trips the the bathroom. I peaked in to see what she was up to. . .

This is where her balls belong.

This is what she decided to do with them.

1) Throw balls out on the floor.
2) Sit down.
3) Figure out my next project.

The Pumpkin Patch

The three of us had a wonderful day together. We started off by planting some pansies in our front bed and potting beautiful a white mum for our front porch. Stella enjoyed her first gardening experience in her pajamas.

Later, we drove to Milan to visit Green Acres pumpkin patch.

Don't worry . . . Daddy was just behind the tractor in case she decided to move. He did a good job of hiding for the picture.

Decisions, decisions.

Our porch is decked out for the season!

Piggy Bank

We saved all of the change from our yard sale this weekend for Stella's piggy bank. She had fun putting each coin in one by one tonight. We have to save up for Disneyworld!

After she was about half done, she said, "Touchdown!" I guess we need to work on the meaning of touchdown some more.
