Carving Pumpkins

Girls get stuck with the dirty work...

And Josh gets to have fun

The finished product

Pumpkin Patch

We had a fun time at the little pumpkin patch here in the harbor with Grandma and cousins. Luckily it was indoor since we went on a day that it was pooring out! The kids had fun doing the bean bag toss and running through the little haystack maze. Rushy's highlight was all the little pumpkins everywhere. He couldn't put them down.

A few randoms

I love this little guy! He has the cutest little personality and is such a sweatheart.

Joee loves to go out on Sunday mornings and get the paper. On this morning it was taking her a little longer than normal so I went out to check on her. This is what I found. Poor thing was so cute and determined to get it all picked back in one armful before coming back inside.

Josh and my-large-7 month-pregnant-self at my Dad's 60th Bday dinner. Happy Birthday Dad!

They play so good together. Joee definately does her fair share of picking on him, but when she's not doing that, she takes really good care of her litttle brother. She loves to get drinks for the 2 of them now that she can get water out of the fridge all by herself.

Excuses Excuses...

I'm full of them. I'll just try to do a quick recap...

In April we moved in to a house that we absolutely love. We then a few weeks later found out that I am pregnant! Rushy and his baby SISTER will be 17 months apart! I'm up for any advice from people that have kids that close together. I'm due Jan 5th. Again, something I'm trying to get advice on...I kinda want to have the baby like Dec. 29th for selfish reasons (taxes, josh having time off, and well, it being early) but am I crazy for wanting her bday so close to Christmas?

Ok, moving on... Josh got a new job. He is the Referral Manager for a nursing home out in Bremerton. He is so happy and confident in where it will take us in the future. Joee started Ballet and had her first little recital. Josh and I could not have been more proud. We were big dorks getting all teary eyed watching her perform. Our little Rushy has turned 1 and is walking all over the place. He took his first few steps on his birthday and it took him a good month to get really comfortable but he's there!
We have had a fun summer enjoying the sunshine at the Barrett's Lake (thanks Court!), having friends come to visit, going to Arizona, seeing our friend's in Cannon Beach (we surprised Joee and took her to see her best friend, Maya, while they were having their little family vacation. She was so excited when she saw her, priceless!) and spending a lot of time with family. Today was so cold and rainy...could the summer really be over?
I realized that if I posted all the pictures that were blog worthy from the last 6 months then it would be quite the photo album, so instead I just put a couple up and will try to do my best to keep up to date.

Rushy is so close to crawling! He gets up on his hands and knees all the time. He's got the leg thing figured out, he just can't quite figure out to move his hands. He's really good at going backwards though! I think he'll be there really soon.

Day at the Zoo

Besides it being absolutely freezing(literally) and the couple days of snow we've had, it's been really sunny. So last week we decided to bundle up and head to the zoo. There we met Aunts, Cousins and Grandma's. Joee loved seeing all the sea life there is at the Pt Defiance zoo. We saw sharks and baluga whales, touched starfish and fed the goats. We finished the day playing on the playground and of course, we can't leave the zoo without riding the Merry Go Round. It was Rushy's first time and he loved it! That kid did not stop smiling the whole ride...and the next one.

A quick post

So I realize I have been a complete failure at blogging the last couple of months. But I'll have to say, I've noticed I'm not the only one! I'm not gonna lie, these posts are for my mom. She just emailed me and told me she wasn't going to babysit anymore until I posted some new pictures. And seeing as I have to go to work and I need her, here are a few. I've been wanting to do a recap and post a bunch over the last few months, but maybe that is what is keeping me from blogging and this short one might help me to get going again. Joee turned 3 last month so here are a few pictures from her princess party. She had so much fun with all her princess friends (minus a couple that we missed so very much) and yes! I made that cake! Good job me!
