Family Friday

We went to Greenbluff again for a MOPS play date. This time it was a farm called Knapp's. It is very preschool friendly, an excellent place to run around and play the morning away! It has a huge straw maze that is only two bales deep, so you can see your kids the whole time they are in the maze, well you can see their little heads poking up anyway.

The pumpkin patch rule is that the kids can have any pumpkin that they can carry by themselves. I do realize with two strappin' boys that we will eventually have to change the rule. or pay big bucks for big pumpkins, but right now it works.

I love Jeremiah's face in this picture, he is just stinkin' cute!

Danielle is my very good friend, and came along to rescue me from having to take all four of the kids to Knapp's by myself. Thank God for good friends.

This pumpkin cannon is HUGE, it is quie a site to see them launch the pumpkins. The gentleman let Mikey and Haley each choose a pumpkin to shoot, Haley's was heavier so he chose hers.

I don't know if you can tell in this picture, but I tried to trim my own bangs. Bad idea. I should've known after all the "bang-up" jobs I have done for Haley not to try it on my own hair. It is just one of those things that seems so easy, and you think "Really, how could I screw it up?" And then you trim a little, but wait, you miss a spot so you trim a little more, and a little more and by the time you are done you have really screwed it up. Hopefully Brach, my lovely hair guy can fix it sometime next week.




I let the kids play with a ball of yarn and this was the end result! Jeremiah couldn't go in any direction without tripping, it was hilarious!

And these are the trees that line the entrance to Fairchild AFB where we live. I love the colors this time of year.

I am looking forward to using my 50% off coupon at Joann this weekend so I can be crafty again. Last time I went, they were out of everything on my list, literally, maybe this time will be more fruitful!

I hope your week was as wonderful as ours!

The difference between a good haircut and a bad one... two weeks.
I chop bangs at least once a year and ALWAYS regret it.

I'm glad you had fun. I kept hearing of MOPS here and there, but i didn't realize until i saw the commercial on the Boz tapes that it was Christan based. Unfortunately the only MOPS group near me isn't exactly near me!

How funny! I DID notice your bangs on Wednesday because I thought they looked really cute.

We missed you this morning.

Knapps was our favorite place to go. The kids kept asking this year if we could go there. I told them that would be quite and expensive pumpkin patch trip! We went to 2 this year, but none were even close to being as good as the ones in Greenbluff. I miss it.

Looks like loads of fun.

On a side note, you talk about MOPS often. I really want to go to our local one. I just need the nerve to go!

I chop my own bangs, but they are easy because they are straight across!

I think your bangs look pretty good! My last stylist offered free bang trims whenever I needed it (as he should have considering a haircut was $60), but there's two problems with that. 1. I feel guilty not paying him 2. I never took the time to go get them done and 3. I always waited about six months between haircuts, so I pretty much always needed more than a "trim"

Now that I'm not working, the $16 haircuts at the Aveda Institute (beauty school) and my own bang chops work just fine!
