Poor Emmy was pretty terrified at the car wash the other day. Speaking of scary, since it's the Halloween season she has caught on to some words and uses them a lot like "spooky" and "spider web." All pumpkins are called "pumpkin patches." We have a scary sounds Halloween book that she loves to read.
I am the secretary of our school's PTO. The Fall Carnival that we put on was last Friday. I did about 1/100 of the amount of work some of the other moms did, and I was still so worn out and exhausted. During the actual carnival I was in charge of the nacho booth. I had my kids as well, so I was very relieved when the teenager from my ward showed up to take my place. That way I could take the kids around to the carnival games.
Emmy was pretty good while I ran the booth...the sno cone helped. It was a really hot afternoon.
We were all ecstatic when dad showed up for the last 30 minutes. I spent 2 hours after the carnival ended cleaning up, but at least I didn't have to put the kids to bed that night!
Saturday was our last day with Nate before he left for Washington DC for a month. He took the kids on a bike ride to McDonald's (which has become quite the tradition for them.) He must have stopped at the Wal-Mart on the way back because Natalie came in the door with these for me along with my favorite juice.
That night we went on a double date with the Comins to a Jenny Oaks Baker concert. Our stake choir was performing with her. It was so fun to be with Kiki and Ben.
Kiki took this staged picture from her car on the drive home. We were just, you know, making out at the stop light.
All dressed up, no place to go.
We don't really carve pumpkins. We should. But we did paint these mini pumpkins the other night, and the kids loved it. Emmy spent probably 30 minutes painting hers, and when I showed her the dried pretty pumpkin the next morning she tossed it in the garbage. Never to be spoken of again. Such a funny girl.
