A New Toy

Look what Little Man found today.  Grandma and Grandpa brought this down to us for when he is a bit older, but he found it in the garage and decided it was time to play with it. 

Luckily though he thinks you're supposed to ride it like this (which means I can save the panic attacks for later).   :-)

He had a blast playing with his scooter until sister woke up.  Then we all went and played in the backyard for a while.  Here are a few more fun pictures I took while we played.

Let Them Be Little - An I Heart Faces Challenge

This week's I Heart Faces Challenge theme is "Let Them Be Little".  I really love these moments of their lives - the moments where they are having so much fun doing the simple things in life.  I hope I always remember these moments.  And I hope their lives are full of these moments.

Tickled Pink - An I Heart Faces Challenge

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the I Heart Faces challenge this week is all about pink.  I hope this never touches her life.  My thoughts and prayers go out to all of those that it has.

Pumpkin Fun

{P is for Pumpkin}
This week's "Tot Time" was all about pumpkins.  We had so much fun!  We started with our "P is for Pumpkin" pictures which quickly turned into pumpkin rolling.  The kids discovered if they put their pumpkin down on the top of the hill it would roll all the way down.  It became a very fun game.  My friend and I really enjoyed watching them laugh and giggle as they chased their pumpkins.  :-)

{Rolling Pumpkins - Not planned but a HUGE hit.}
 Then we came inside to read and sing songs.  The plan was to read "5 Little Pumpkins" and sing the Pumpkin songs that I found here.  But today this didn't work very well for us (although we enjoyed the songs during bath time later).  So we quickly moved on to our pumpkin patch.

The kids really seemed to enjoy the pumpkin patch.  They picked the pumpkins, played with the grass (packing peanuts) and just had an overall good time.  We decided to let them just play and explore with this for quite a while.  Here are some of candid shots from our pumpkin patch play.

After playing in our pumpkin patch for a while, we tried a new game.  We took our pumpkins inside and put them on a parachute and tried going to the left and right, in and out with it.  This wasn't too successful for us today either.  So we had lunch and moved on to our craft.  I had prepared the craft I found here for us to work on.

 We have talked about, played with and sung about pumpkins ever since we had our tot time.  I love this time of year.  Happy Halloween everyone!!!  :-)

Raise Your Hands - An I Heart Faces Challenge

This week's I Heart Faces Challenge theme is "Raise Your Hands".  We were asked to enter a picture with hands that we love.  And I have to say I love these hands.  These are the hands of three of the four best little friends - who play together, who get messy together, and who are sharing their childhood together.  These are the hands of my twins and my friend's twins.  I definitely love these hands!

Birthday Cupcakes and Balloons

Last week we got to celebrate the twins birthday with all of our LensBaby friends.  It was so great to catch up with some of the moms I hadn't gotten a chance to see in so long.  And I love that the kids have such great little friends.  We are so glad to be a part of this group.  Here are a few of my favorite moments from the party.
