All I want for Chistmas...

I don't have a great picture of it yet, but Joe lost his two top teeth this September. I made him a tooth pillow, and they were super loose. I was ready to pull them out when his Auntie Erin offered to do it. He is so cute with them missing. He lost his bottom two in the last year also. It's fun to hear the words he says sound differently. He hopes to have his two front teeth for Christmas.

We love Autumn!

Late summer and early fall have been so unpredictable this year. In August when we went to both Fairs it was in the 50's both days, and on this trip to the Arboretum it was 87 in October. Who knows what's going on? Anyway, it was a beautiful gorgeous wonderfully warm and sunny day and I HAD to be outside. Luckily it was Bradens free day, and we took a family trip to the Arboretum (one of our favorite places). I took a shot of my family, minus me, and then asked someone to do a shot of the whole lot. It's just not the same. I need to bring someone with me to do a photo shoot for us. Maybe next time. It sure was a beautiful day!



Running and playing together.


Joseph Lorelei and Gigi enjoying the sun.


Random Shots

Two tired girls one afternoon. Really Gigi was just copying her big sister. She loves her hippo animal.

Joseph is the Big brother, and he will take care of his little sisters, curlers and all.

Two Fairs and Lots of Rain

I know these are not new events, but life is starting to slow down now that school is in session and I have a minute to post.
Here we are at the State Fair. We went on opening day. It was very rainy and cool. We had to wait for Braden to come back from something, so to pass the time we bought cotton candy and got a little creative with it. We love the State Fair

Here are the big kids in the Kidway. They really did have a lot of fun. On the way home we asked them what their favorite part was and they quickly said the robot wars. Braden took the two big kids to that while I looked at the Art Building with Gretchen.



Here we are at the Rennaisance Festival with many of bradens siblings. It rained most of the day and was very cool, but we had a lot of fun. I didn't have my camera out much due to the rain, so I have no photos of adults or so many of Joe and Gigi.

Here is Lorelei on stage with a performer. She had a lot of fun. Joe was not in the mood to be on stage. Lorelei tried lots of instraments.


Here is Lorelei with her face painted. She was so excited. we tried really hard to kep her face dry in the rain.
