Sledding...yelling "mommy go faster!"
Building a snowman, and eating half the carrot
Testing the ice cicles...
and more ice cicles

backyard Jenna found a ladybug. She is fascinated by bugs and will even touch some of them, she does not get this from her mother. She got the ladybug on a leaf and carried it around for about 10 minutes picking it up every time it fell. She must have gotten sick of dropping it so she decided she'd just put it in her hand. That was good for a period of time but then she decided that ladybug needed a home so I went old school and got out a glass jar. We furnished ladybugs home with some wood chips, grass and a leaf. Jenna watched curiously as the bug crawled around. This tiny bug provided an afternoon of entertainment. When Dave arrived home she was more than excited to share her latest find with him and told him all about how she caught the bug and the home we had made. She then asked Dave to help bring ladybug home, so off the two of them went outside where Dave placed ladybug back onto a branch. Jenna thought ladybugs friends might miss her if we kept her inside all night....too sweet.

Jacob the dog, Oliver the lion, Jenna the cheerleader, Grace the leopard, Hannah as Hannah Montana, Jonas the Banana and Evan the pumpkin...Silas the pumpkin had not arrived yet.
We even stopped at ZFS to see uncle Travis at work since Jenna would be at her dad's by the time he was done working. Jenna thought it was pretty special that he had a whole big bag of M&M's for her!

Jenna: why can't I talk like that?
Mom: it doesn't sound like a very nice tone.
Jenna: why is it not a nice tone?
Mom: We're supposed to talk kind and it doesn't sound kind.
Jenna: what does it sound like?
Mom: (stumped)....ummm, kind of not nice a little snotty
Jenna: Snotty? what's that?
Mom: When you say words in a not nice way.
Jenna: mom, you don't know what snotty is. Snotty is not what we say it's the stuff that comes out of your nose
End of story...she was right. The score: Jenna 1, Mom 0!
We decided it was finally about time we headed out to get some pumpkins...especially since the weather doesn't look like it's going to stay very nice. We didn't take a real pumpkin patch trip but we did head to
Green Acres where the selection of pumpkins was huge and somewhat "pumpkin patchy". The bonus of waiting so long is that they were all buy one get one free....what a deal! I think Dave and I had just as much fun as Jenna trying to pick out the perfect pumpkin. Our little softhearted Jenna even found a soft spot for the really ugly pumpkins. She had her choice of every huge and perfect pumpkin but she kept picking the smallest, misshapen, dented and damaged ones...gotta love a girl who sees the beauty in everything. They have other little treats in the store as well and Jenna used her smile and "please Dave" to get herself a bag of homemade Carmel corn...such a pushover - haha. I don't know why Jenna was in such a weird smile mood. We'll carve later in the week, I'm sure it will be a great time.

This is a girl playing soccer....ALL GIGGLES!!! She did this for a very long time which made bedtime easy. It's a little shaky, sorry.
