|Me and my punkins|
|Looks like she's snapping her fingers. So grown up :/|
It was so much fun to spend some time just Emily and Mommy. She only made me want to scream twice. Progress!
Then Saturday evening, with the Autumn candle burning and "Sounds of the Season" on Music Choice in the background, we sat down to carve (and color) our pumpkins. Emily didn't want to cut into hers. I had told her that the inside was gooey and messy and it would be fun, but she said she didn't want to get her hands dirty. #OCDjustlikeherDaddy... So she colored hers. And Caroline's. And an extra one she got at a birthday party last week.
Tracing out his creepy face
|Look at that perfect little pumpkin! Oh and the gourd is nice too.|
|Ignore the huge red candles in the Jack-O-Lanterns. I didn't have any white tea lights.|
|Super "old school"...aka no imagination|
Sunday was pretty lazy, but I did manage to get a bunch of laundry and organizing done. I cleaned out the basket where I keep the artwork and stuff Emily brings home from daycare. My system so far has been to take pictures of everything and only keep my very favorite pieces (especially ones with her hand prints or anything that shows major development like drawing faces or tracing letters). I try to remember to put the date or at least the month or season and the year. It will be fun to look back on these little treasures.
Here are a couple samples of her recent projects:
|They did a whole week of "On the Farm" projects.|
|Not sure who these are supposed to be, but I love the faces, and the one has shorts on!|
