Day 2 - Actually I ended up adding another page to day 1. I wanted to include how the kids were being Naughty and not Nice.

Day 2 - Page 1. Decorating the tree
Other side. Katelyn and Maddie were
pretending that they were Rudolph and Santa. Katelyn was pulling the sled and Maddie would
get out frequently to deliver toys to the children.
Decorating the tree and Katelyn was my light helper.
Other side. More decorating. The kids love to decorate
the tree. The love to take all the ornaments out then put them on the tree.

Wheeler Farm with Grandpa

Grandpa was Noah's safe haven today. When he got scared he would grab grandpa's hand.

Noah stole Maddie's sucker and is playing peek a boo with grandpa

Please don't hug me

Proof that Maddie put her shoes all by herself - they are on the wrong feet.

My three cuties. Grandpa is making funny faces to try to get some smiles.

Noah loved to sit and pretend drive the tractors. He wanted to ride all of them.

Katelyn tried to pet the cow and it lifted up his head and pinned her arm between the fence. ** Followup ** Katelyn and the Cow are both fine now.
Ducks are Noah's favorite, he can even say quack, quack. Today he was a little hesitant to get close to them. He was either right by Grandpa or watching from afar.

Friends and Leaves

We had two neighbor kids over to play today. (Sisters - Maggie and Amelia)They wanted to play dress up and each took turns picking out a princess dress - Katelyn decided to be Supergirl instead of a princess. I then sent them outside with a Halloween bucket to pick some leaves for a fun craft. They had lots of fun finding different colors, sizes, and shapes of leaves. When the leaves were all gathered the kids glued them onto papers and chose a leaf to represent each member of their family. Maddie had both sets of grandparents on her paper. She sure does love them. Patrick requested pictures so I am doing up this post for him. It was a fun day but I am glad that I only have three kids to watch now !!

Paper Trail Makers Challenge

I thought that I would play along in this weeks challenge at the Paper Trail Makers Challenge blog. Had lots of fun with circles. This layout was from last summer at the pool and how we discovered that daddy can double as a whale !! They ask for the daddy whale every time we go to the pool now. So fun. Look very close for the whale !!

No longer a baby

My sweet baby boy is no longer a tiny baby. In a blink of an eye he went from a small,precious, bundle of joy to a mobile, hurry and close the bathroom door, loud boy. It went by way to fast.

A few weeks ago I took him down to get his One Year photos taken. Well, they didn't go so well. There were a lot of tears and not a lot of smiles. Oh well he is still so handsome and so cute with his birthday cake.

Love you Noah.

Happiness Is

I follow and read many great blogs. One of which is Kara Layne Photography. She is in Arizona and usually posts a "HAPPINESS IS" weekly post and I love it. So I thought that I would try it.

I know it has been way too long since I have even posted so I have a lot to catch up on. So here is my "HAPPINESS IS" post Niebuhr style.

There were so many more I wanted to share. So many wonderful happy moments. Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.
