Pumpkin carving time!

This past weekend we carved pumpkins with the kids. Will was very involved and really enjoyed it. Especially when he could use the pumpkin knife. Kaela was excited and ready with a spoon in hand, but got scared when she saw all the pumpkin guts. She enjoyed watching from a safe distance. Here are some pictures of the kids carving pumpkins. We hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween! 
Kaela got her hair trimmed the other day. It wasn't planned very well and I didn't bring a camera, but you can see it's not in her eyes in this last photo :)

A letter

Dear Aunt Rachie,

We just wanted you to know that we love you and miss you. Mom may not always be good at updating the blog like you want her to, but we do think of you all the time. We can't wait to see you in just a few weeks (30 days)!! We can't wait to play and color and read with you.  Kaela and I have grown a lot since we saw you in December so you are going to be really surprised when you see how big we are and how smart we are. We will have lots of fun! We miss you lots and can't wait to come visit you one day soon too!  
We love you! XOXO
Will and Kaela

Kaela loves to wash her face and hands and Will loves to play on the computer...with no clothes on...he DOES have a diaper on, but it does look pretty funny!

Finally! A Post

After weeks of nothing and a lot of threatening emails from my sister I am finally posting.  I told myself I would do this before the end of the weekend so I figured since it's Sunday at 8 pm, I better get going.  I don't really feel like I have a whole lot to share though. Everyone is doing pretty well. Both of the kids got the cold that seems to be going around a couple of weeks ago. Matt and I both got mild versions of it, but nothing too bad. Kaela still has a pretty bad cough and it seems to be getting worse, so I'm going to take her to the doctor's this week.  
We have been really enjoying the fall weather. We have had some really nice weather and perfect for going out to the cider mills and pumpkin patches! We have gone to a couple already this season and will hopefully get to go a couple more times before the snow or cold weather comes.  Will is at a really fun age to enjoy the horse drawn hayrides and the hay maze at one of the farms near our house.  
Tonya, Knoah's mom, had a Halloween party at her house yesterday for the kids which was a blast. I will save that for another post this week. 
I haven't updated on school and daycare...Will is doing really well in school. Daycare is still hard, but he is doing better I think.  He had a lot of time being at home with Daddy so I know it's a big change for him. Hopefully soon things will get easier.  He is talking a lot more and making more sense too which is very exciting. He is at a really fun age...but also one of those ages where I want to pull my hair out! He can be so sweet and then he turns around for one second and he is a monster! I love him, but he sure knows how to test my patience.  He has also started potty training which is very exciting! Go Will! He poops and pees on the toilet. He doesn't do it when we are out of the house but on the weekends he will do it all day, so we are very happy with his progress.
Kaela is doing really good with daycare. She seemed to transition much easier then Will, but when she's home she is hooked to me at the hip. She does not want Matt, she doesn't like to be put down, she just wants mama.  She is a big snuggle bear and I love it.  It can be a little tiring though when she screams when I put her down or when Matt takes her, but overall I love it :)

I will end with some pictures of the kids. If I don't, I know I will get some more nasty emails from my sister :)
