Fall Fun & Changes



Monkies scare me (At Rainforest Cafe)

Look at the pig snout he touched.

Mackenzie was there too!

With the cool breezes of fall come new happenings in our life. That's probably what I love the most about it. I would say that other than slightly cooler temperatures, I've noticed a noticable change in our family...and not just because Mackenzie is on her way soon. There is this new thing happening with Alex and Gabby. They just seem to act more like two siblings running around chasing one another, playing games together...just being kids together. It's what I cherished the most of my childhood with my 4 brother and sisters...and it warms my heart to see Alex growing up to be a little boy, not just a baby brother. Also, with the new changes we are rapidly preparing for another child in this house. Gabby will be moving rooms. Our once navy playroom is now bright pink and almost ready for her to move in. It kinda makes me sad b/c the room she has now has always been her bedroom since the first day we moved in, now it will be Mackenzie's--which I am racking my brain trying to decide on a color and theme for. Feel free to offer suggestions.
We also have some pics from our recent trip out to Dewberry Farms. It was a fun little fam trip which has now become an official tradition that I look forward to every year. This year was even more fun b/c Alex was much more aware of everything. He especially liked the farm animals. Then afterward we went to Rainforest Cafe, Gabby's favorite restuarant. We did this last year. The only different thing was that we didn't consider Alex's reaction to the grunting gorillas and flashing thunder lights. Let's just say he did not enjoy his meal. In fact, he snuggled up on Chad's lap and nuzzled into his neck and refused to move. If Chad tried to take a bite of his sandwich, he would grab his face to shelter his eyes. He eventually feel asleep. But woke up in the car on the drive home. Then the rest of the trip home he would say, "The Monkies scare me." or "Monkies gone?" He gets cuter everyday!!!!

Mister Sock by: Gabrielle Dick

One Day Mister Sock

"Mister Sock, you get in here right now!"

" Pick up this mess!"

Mister Sock ate his lunch. "Goodnight Mister Sock," said her mother (I love that Mister Sock is now a"she")

It was morning time. "Ohoh" (Yawning sound)

"I love you Mommy," said Mister Sock.
The End.

Gabby has really been getting into writing down stories. Today she made a book about Mister Sock. I thought it was too cute not to share. She did this all on her own with no help from me, so I had to translate.
