Preschool Thalia

I took a picture on Thalia’s first and last Monday of school and placed them side by side. The placement and angles are a little off. But you get the point. Our little girl is growing.

Kids Yoga

Thalia wasn’t feeling well. So she’s spent a couple days at home last week. She watched me do my yoga on the first day and wanted to do her own. So I found her a kids yoga video and she loves it!

Autumn Weekend 2011

On Friday we went for a run and picked wild flowers on the walk home. Java joined in the fun. Then Daddy cooked us up some potato and egg skillet lunch while Mommy baked a homemade sweet potato pie. Both were delicious!
On Saturday, we got up and started our pumpkin carving. Thalia quickly drew her “silly face” on her baby pumpkin. While she had a messy little tea party, Daddy carved a Gator! And Mommy went for a skull since her pumpkin was skull-shaped. It all turned out perfectly. This afternoon, we’re all heading to Thalia’s best school bud Maria’s birthday party!

Ice Cream Sandwiches

Thalia somehow got it into her head that she wanted Ice Cream Sandwiches. So last week, we rounded up our flour and sugar and honey, made us some yummy chocolate chip cookies. Then we turned them into… dun da da daaaa! The Ice Cream Sandwich!

Labor Day 2011

We had a good first day at the beach with Grandpo for Labor Day. Second day, not so much. But that’s a different story. We went to the beach. Thalia was a little scared of the water and looked like this for most of the time there:

But eventually she decided to have fun and built a “Pink Princess Castle”

The other highlight was racing cars with Daddy and Grandpo:

We also made some “Cake Pops” and ate too many sweets! It would have been a great weekend if not for the aforementioned second day. But hopefully only the good memories will stick. We also got muscadine grapes on the way home. Yum!
