Happy Fall!

This week we had 2 of our nieces stay with us while Freddy and Candy went on vacation! Today we went to Gross Farms for photo ops and some good fall fun like a corn maze, hot cider, and a hay ride. Note to self: Don't wait until the day before Halloween to go to the pumpkin patch. Another note to self: All those things I thought were free growing up, I'm now learning parents actually pay for that stuff! So with 4 of us not "kid price" the only fun to be had was walking around the very picked through pumpkins, then taking pictures at the entrance. Good thing we have a baby who didn't know any better and 2 very understanding nieces!

Then it was off to Kmart to buy nice looking pumpkins for some more photo ops at home.

During the last few weeks of pregnancy, Kate listened to Brad Paisley's new song "Then". She didn't just listen to it a few times, she obsessively played the song on repeat, learned every word, and sung it at the top of her lungs while driving. Then one day a few weeks after Kaylee was born, Kate was driving with Kaylee by themselves. Kaylee began to cry...then scream. It didn't matter how much Kate reassured her, pulled over to make sure something wasn't wrong, or attempted to hold the pacifier in place with one arm backwards while driving. It finally occurred to Kate that maybe Kaylee wants mommy to sing to her (although no one else would want this!). So Kate put track #4 on and began to sing. Kaylee immediately calmed down. Low and behold, it's not even mommy's singing that Kaylee likes! It's Brad's!
