Funny stuff

Picture this, if you will...

I've gotten the kids out of the bathtub. This is CRAZY TIME in our house. We have two kids running around that we are trying to corral and coax into diapers and pajamas. So tonight I'm struggling to get Ladybug snapped into her jammies, she's crying, things are nuts.

The Doodle comes in, naked, with a toy piano. Climbs into Franny's dollbed announcing, "Look, Momma! I'm in the BATH!" And proceeds to give the following stellar performance:

In other news, Franny is walking! She can't get very far, though, because she thinks she is SO AWESOME that she gets too excited to stand up. She crashes down, laughs hysterically, and then jumps up and tries again. She cracks herself up.

Saturday Morning Breakfast

We have a long-standing ritual of cooking Saturday morning breakfast. Doodlebug/Ladybug have now decided they are old enough to help. This morning Daddy brought in this step stool for Atticus to stand on. We turn around, and the next thing we know, there Franny is, balanced precariously on the step right behind him. She's definitely our little climber!

A few more random pictures of Frannybug I have. Here's one Uncle Chad took:

And one more I found from our outing to the pumpkin patch last week. She's ready to head home after a long day on the farm! :)

Pumpkin patch

Yesterday we went to this farm and pumpkin patch my friend Mendy told me about. We had a blast. They had train rides, hay rides, a giant trampoline, an 80' slide, animals, etc. The kids got to pet a baby pig, goats, sheep, and Atticus got to hold a bunny.

Here is Franny checking out one of the horses:

Hey Horse! She loves it!

Atticus next to the train. We rode in the caboose. :)

Atticus and Craig both played on the trampoline and went down the slide multiple times. Craig was the one begging to go down the slide "one more time." I think we had as much fun as the kids did.
