Finger Painting

Trying my first post using the blogger app & picframe app. I seem to be too busy for a traditional post these days. I'm sure this picture explains it all.

Raindrops on roses...

Last night Ozzie and I watched The Sound of Music which is one of my favorite movies, especially at Christmas. Of course, Ozzie loved the song, My Favorite Things, who wouldn't?

Any way, it got me thinking. Just in case my husband, my parents, my grandparents or a really generous friend wants to complete my favorite things wishlist this Christmas.

De Buyer Mandoline Slicer
Breville Panini Press
Le Creuset Deep Saute Pan (or the large oval french oven, really any Le Creuset cooking pan will do!)
Breville Countertop Convection Oven

When did my wishlist go from clothes, boys and make up to kitchen items?

From the patch to the carving table.


Ozzie Versus the Pumpkin

I loved this series of pictures I took of Ozzie finding "his" pumpkin and carrying it all the way to the wheelbarrow.

Ozzie is victorious!

Pumpkin Patch

I am really having a hard time keeping up with the blog and my little people but better late than never. Here are some fun pictures from our adventure at the pumpkin patch.

p.s. 4th year in a row that we went to the patch on a beautiful, rain-free, Autumn day in Seattle. I'm just saying...

Baby's First Halloween

We saved Ozzie's pumpkin onesie knowing that if we had another child we would keep up this tradition. So glad we did. Ozzie was just three months old and Olivia is 9 months old. I'm sure you can tell by how the onesie fits.

I could stare at this picture all day. The loves of my life!

Halloween 2011

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays for many different reasons. It kicks off the Holiday Season for me, seeing all of the kids in their adorable outfits, pumpkins (I kind of have a weird obsession with pumpkins- pumpkin pie, carving pumpkins, mini pumpkins, pumpkin bread, pumpkin planters, I really could go on) and decorating the house- especially with pumpkins!

This year marks Olivia's first Halloween. We chose a lady bug because it was red, I think red and purple are her colors, and because it was warm. Ozzie chose his Buzz Light-year costume from last year.

Last year, he wanted nothing to do with trick or treating so it was fun that he wanted to give it a try this year. We ultimately called it an early night because Ozzie really wanted to go back home and hand out candy like last year. 

As usual, Ozzie was in rare form. He was the funniest trick or treater. Instead of saying, "Trick or treat" he chose to comment on every neighbor's house. Our personal favorite is when he told a girl that her jeans were ripped and he had a pair of ripped jeans at home. He also "thanked" each neighbor by shooting them with his pretend laser on his Buzz costume.

Nothing beats his comments while handing out candy to the kids at home. One little girl happened to ring our doorbell twice. Of course I knew it but ignored it, she was young and probably a little overwhelmed. Ozzie didn't have my social grace:
Ozzie, "Hey you've already been here? Mom why did she come back again?"
Her Dad, "Oh yeah honey I think you've already been to this house."
Me (as quickly as possible to make up for Ozzie's comment), "That's okay, we have plenty of candy."
She says nothing and starts backing up happy that she's gotten away with more candy from the same house.
Ozzie yelling at her as she is walking away, "You don't need anymore candy!"

Ummmm... sorry?! I wish I would've had it on tape, he wasn't mad just telling her how it was. So funny! Hope your day was just as fun.

Here are some of my favorite pictures. Happy Halloween!

Not sure why Ozzie is eating Olivia's ear.

Summer Memories

I spent the summer enjoying my family and did not blog much. Now that it is cold and rainy, I am finding more time in front of my lap top after the kiddos go to sleep. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from this summer.

Ozzie learning to ride his new bike.

Running through the sprinkler.

Jealous she can't run through the sprinkler too.

Miss Olivia learning to sit up on her own.

Enjoying our vacation in Lake Chelan.
