A Cinderella Story

Once upon a time there was a princess named Cinderella...

Her evil stepmother kept her from making friends. But that did not stop her. She made friends with the little mice in her tower room...

Joel (the thirsty mouse)

Caleb (the sleepy mouse)

One dark cold night, they decided to visit the towns people for some candy...but the mice did not want to wear their ears...
After much whooping and hollering by the step-parents and quick footwork and picture taking, they managed to get these shots...

(notice Caleb's tail and he's stepping on his cheese tie)

Then they all went out in the night to get their candy.

They returned with much loot and very full of sugar. Then Cinderella tucked them in bed and patted their heads and said; "Sleep well my mice friends for tomorrow we snack!"

The End

Fun at home

I was trying to play my new piano music I purchased this weekend...somehow I was pushed off the bench!
I discovered the kids all sitting on the couch while Kiera read to them...cute! I think Joel is holding a flashlight in case he can't see the pictures well enough....
Those ridiculous binky's....
I took this picture and they both said "eese" and acted all goofy!
Not sure where Kiera went, but they took full advantage of her disappearance!

A picture is worth a thousand words...

We need some creative captions for these pictures...(Caleb left, Joel right, and Kiera way in back)

What happens when Kiera is doing school???
They were so proud of themselves at learning how to blow these party favors!

Harvest Festival

Our family picture on the hay, Joel is in blue, Caleb has green boots.

How about this one mom?

One of the few where everyone is looking.
Caleb arrived in a funk and it took him a bit to get in the spirit!

We took the kids to the local Apple Orchard on Saturday for their Harvest Festival. They have hay rides, train rides, a small petting zoo, pony rides, inflatables, and lots of food. We took a hayride out to the pumpkin patch to get a pumpkin (they were rather expensive, so we got one for the experience) and had fun watching the kids wander through all the pumpkins. We let the kids have a train ride and then just walked around looking at everything. I think their favorite thing was the stack of hay bales they had to climb on. It was so nice to have a fun family day and a relaxing weekend!
