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.
