I can't believe it has been almost 2 months since my last post. I feel so bad for not keeping everyone updated! To make up for my lack of posts I thought I'd share a few photos we took during that time :o)
We bought the kids canvases and let them go to town finger painting them. Joe & I cut out different shapes and taped them onto the canvas first so when they were done we peeled them off and had very cute pictures. Will had a tractor and Julianna had a bunch of flower petal shapes. Both paintings now hang in our family room :o)
When I sold all my cloth diapers this summer I kept one for Will's keepsake box (I couldn't get rid of his firetruck diaper!). He found it one day and insisted on putting it on...over his pajama pants!
Julianna loves making faces at people...she's pretty good too.
Julianna started her 2nd year of pre-school this year. It is going so much smoother than last year (no crying every morning). She has a friend that she talked about all summer and was so excited when she went the first day and Molly was there. She has fun looking for letter of the week objects to take in for show & tell each week, and was so happy to show her daddy that she learned to "Stop, Drop & Roll" last week.
This is his Bob the Builder look (he even has all his tolls behind him) :o)
For Trick-or-Treat at the campground Will was supposed to a 50's guy (to go along with Julianna in a poodle skirt), but instead he became (as he calls himself) "Spikey Will". Check out that hair!
Julianna wore a poodle skirt to Trick-or-Treat. The weather was amazing that day and I rode on the wagon alongside them while they got their candy.
While Julianna was at school one day, I got the play-dough out for Will. It was the first time he had ever played with play-dough at out house and he LOVED all the tools, especially the "pasketti" (translation:spaghetti) maker.
Since Julianna did so incredibly well during her root canal, Joe told her she could pick somewhere fun to go for lunch one day...she chose Chuck E Cheese. The kids had an absolute blast and I purelled whenever I could (we also saw them disinfecting all the game tokens) & there were only 4 other kids there. It was a lot of fun for the kids, but I don't think we'll be going back anytime soon. ;0)
I just had to share this next pic...can you guess what is next to Joe's cell phone? They are carrots. We planted a great little garden when I was feeling really good at the beginning of summer, then my chemo changed and the garden got neglected. Of everything we planted we got 1 amazing green pepper, a handful of cherry tomatoes (Will squished quite a few of them) and two teeny tiny carrots. So what do you do with teeny tiny carrots? You wash them up and eat them...in a single bite. They were really sweet! Julianna wants to plant teeny tiny carrots again next year...haha!
