Sweet Punkin Pie.

Along with my brother and SIL, we took the kids to the pumpkin patch this weekend. The guys complained because I told them to get used to it because two years in a row means that we are starting a yearly tradition! Anyways, we took lots of pic while the kiddos played around in the piles of pumpkins and I couldn't help but look up last years photos to see the difference.

I actually think the kids were less squirmy and easier to get to pose for pictures last year. You could just plop them down on a pumpkin, make a goofy face and poof - beautiful photo. Not so much this year - we had to work much harder for them.

Big difference = none of this last year:

Miss Eva Mae Krehbiel

And definitely no girl-on-girl action last year. Lilah's favorite thing to do with Eva is give her kisses. If Eva has her pacifier in, Lilah pulls it out, kisses her, and plops it back in. (She learned that from Jak.)

Greens and yellows and browns, oh my.

Went with my friend, Michelle, to a great quilting store, called The Button Hole, in McPherson, KS this weekend. She has never quilted before and was very curious. I am a beginner who pretends to know what she is talking about. We make a funny combination. Anyways, she bought an awesome bunch of fabrics to make a friend a baby quilt, and I, as usual, bought a few mismatched, but beautiful fabrics - and an overambitious quilt pattern. Mostly just came home with some inspiration and motivation to actually get something made.

Also put together a cover for what will be a baby book for the new baby. Kinda boyish, I know. But don't the floral patterns help girl it up a little?

And, on the family front - here are a few pics of my nephew, Jak's, 2nd birthday party.


The Cars cake was made by my SIL's sister, Kathleen. She has quite a knack for cakes and gets more impressive ! So pretty we had a hard time cutting into it.

And one to prove that I am truly pregnant :)

Hello in there.

Say hi to baby number two. Before you get too excited, we decided to keep the gender a surprise yet again.

We are right on target. 17 weeks left and everything checks out normal. Wonderful news, but not near as exciting as the gender, huh?

Here he/she is looking straight at us :)

First Haircut that is. Lilah got her first haircut :( Little stinker won't keep her hair clips in, so her long bangs were always hanging in her eyes.

For example:

We took her to a salon by our house and she got her first trim. I can't believe she's old enough to have her hair cut! Anyways, she did a great job (with the help of a handful of Skittles) and looks very pretty now :)
