Sophie was a little lamb this year for halloween. I was afraid that she wouldn't want to dress up, but I didn't have any problems getting her to wear the costume. Our friends Kirsty, Hamish and Will came over to trick or treat with us. Will was a very cute little scarecrow. Sophie and Will had the greatest time. We bought a wagon for them to ride around in and I think that they mostly just liked climbing in and out of the wagon. Sophie loved running up to everyone's door and getting candy. She was very polite and would always say thank you (we've been working on manners -saying please and thank you) when she got a piece of candy. After we let the kids trick or treat we came home to some of the best chili Jason has ever made! It was the perfect thing to warm you up on a cool night.

The Pumpkin Patch

We took Sophie to Wales West Railway to the pumpkin patch to ride the train. At first she was a little scared of the train, but luckily we sat there a while waiting for everyone to get on and by the time we left she was over being scared. We rode the train to the pumpkin patch and when we got there we had to go through a little haunted house to get to the pumpkins. Sophie had a good time picking up the little pumpkins and carrying them around. Once we picked out our pumpkins we got to go inside and decorate them. That was Sophie's favorite part. On the way back she wasn't scared of the train and really enjoyed the ride. The conductor let all the kids blow the whistle once we returned to the station, but Sophie was scared of the whistle so we skipped that part and went to get our juice and cookies.

It has been a while.....

Jason repainted the shutters on the front of our house. They look great now. We have had the paint all summer, but every time Jason was off it was raining or we had something else going on. Sophie really enjoyed relaxing and watching Jason paint. We took her papasan chair outside for her to sit in. It totally changed the look of our house.

We have been working on sitting on the potty. Sophie said her baby had to go "shoo shoo", so we had let her sit on the potty. We got the same results we would have if it had been Sophie sitting there....nothing.
The itsy bitsy spider climbed up the water spout.....

This is a picture of some of the kids in Sophie's playgroup. We went to the pier in Fairhope to play on the beach, feed the ducks and then have a picnic. The kids had the greatest time. They really enjoyed feeding the ducks, but the seagulls took over very quickly once they realized we had food.
