Regular or Decaf??

Apparently William hasn't been getting enough sleep.  That, or he wanted to try out our new Keurig after hearing us rave about it all the time.  Either way, I am glad he found the decaf!!!

Two Wheels

One day we were out riding bikes and Abby met a little girl who lives down the street from us.  She had recently started riding her bike without training wheels and Abby decided right then and there she wanted to learn too.  Andrew took her training wheels off and about 15-20 min. later Abby was riding on two wheels!  She learned really quickly and has been obsessed with riding her bike since.

About 3 weeks after learning how to ride, Abby took a nasty spill which ended in a trip to the ER and 5 stitches in her chin.  On the way to the hospital I was trying to reassure Abby that everything would be ok and told her that she would probably not even need traditional stitches because they have this "really cool new glue stuff" that can be used instead.  Well, the minute they looked at her chin we were informed that there was no way the glue would work and we were in for real stitches.  Abby did great though and was very brave and tough!!!

Here's a short video of her the day she learned to ride without training wheels!

Olivia's 3rd Birthday

We had a small family celebration for Olivia's actual birthday.  Grammy Susan was in Michigan so she drove down to spend the day with us.  We opened presents and then went to Noodles for dinner per Olivia's request.  After Noodles, we went to Cheesecake Factory for a birthday dessert. But, upon sitting in the booth, Abigail tossed her cookies so we got our cheesecake to go and took care of our poor, sick girl at home.

Olivia loved opening all her presents!
She was even nice and let William "help"

I love her face in this picture!

So poor Abby got the stomach flu on Olivia's actual birthday and poor Olivia came down with it the following Saturday which just so happened to be the day of her birthday party.  Needless to say, we had to postpone her birthday party and Olivia spent the better part of the day drifting in and out of sleep on the couch and learning how to properly throw up in a bowl!  Nice way to turn 3, huh?!?

Windmill Farms

The week before Halloween we took a trip to Windmill Farms to go on a hayride, have a snack, pick a pumpkin, and play with all of our friends.  The hayride was so much fun.  We actually all sat on the ground in a big pile of hay and went on a 10-15 minute very bumpy ride.  The kids loved it and we heard laughter the whole way!  Even William enjoyed the ride while riding in the ergo carrier.  When the hay ride was over we got a pumpkin cookie to snack on and the kids were able to pick out a pumpkin to bring home.  We played on the playground and visited the animals they had on the property.  After all the excitement we ate some lunch and took some pictures.  It was a beautiful fall day and we had lots of fun.  We can't wait to go back again next year!
