So after having a great lunch at Calamity Jane's, we went to the pumpkin patch. We took the kids and went with the McNutt family (Blayne's cousin), Damon, Kelly, Alyssa, and Grace. We went to BUSHUE FARMS, took a hay ride over to the large pumpkin patch, they dropped us off, we wondered around and found our pumpkins, then they picked us up. We rode back over to the farm, paid for hay ride and pumpkins. We came home hung out for awhile, made dinner, played the Wii, then finally carved our pumpkins. We had to keep Maddy from eating the pumpkin scraps,it was so much fun. It was a beautiful Oregon day, it was 70 degrees and sunny. The wind was blowing a nice warm breeze (I love it when it is windy). Today will definitely make a list of one of my "PERFECT" days!!!
We Can! Blayne and I are obsessed with this series. (some of many) We are joining the countdown. In fact Blayne has actually started re-reading the series. He has downloaded the soundtrack videos to our ipods, and he has found several parts of the books that were removed after editing and read those too. (He may disagree with some of them being removed)
We are preparing for Halloween at our house. We have a Cowgirl, Spider man, and a Ladybug. We are enjoying the beautiful (when it's dry) fall weather. So many gorgeous colors. It is time for a fall family photo......I will have to work on that.
So we had Maddalyn's PT appointment today. She is definitely bow legged. She has a curve to her upper leg bone, her lower leg bone, and also her foot turns in. Both legs are affected, but the left is definitely worse. We are hoping she grows out of it and no braces or casts are needed. The dr. said it probably developed in utero. Which if you remember when she was born, she slept with her legs overlapping indian style. We noticed it but thought nothing of it. She is growing so fast, turning into such a mischievous little girl. If she wasn't getting into trouble and trying to run away, we probably wouldn't have noticed this early. Upon her get away she gets going too fast and falls.
Blayne and I have been married for 15 years! With three GREAT kids keeping us busy. Victoria 11 and is in the 6th grade, Gavin is almost 8, a 3rd grader and is a busy boy, Maddy is 6, in 1st grade and is showing us we had it easy with the first two. We are currently living in Sandy, OR. Blayne's childhood town. Life seems to be going so fast, we are excited to see what it has in store for us, there is nothing better then looking forward to doing it together!
