October has been full of fun things! I have LOVED the slightly cooler weather, especially in the mornings. My big girls have been busy with school and we are already almost at the end of the first quarter! Time flies. I am home with my little girls and I had to put some pictures of our latest adventures.
My little Noelle is not so little! She is actually quite round at almost 4 months...and I love it. She is growing like a weed (we do have some of those in our yard as well but I doubt those weeds are as interesting or near as cute as my baby)! Noelle is so alert and happy. She is giggling and cooing and she likes to be sitting up. I pulled out our walker and she does quite well in there...she likes to chew on the red steering wheel...doesn't it look tasty?!?!?!?!
She found her feet...and she loves them!
The girls' elementary school had an academic night. All the students and their families were invited for pizza and academic classes. We could choose to attend 3 classes of many. We went to a color mixing lab, a workshop on math games, a reading comprehension class, and a water cycle class. The girls got to play and try things and they brought loads of great ideas home on how to make learning fun and exciting. It was so wonderful and I am so glad we went. Here the girls are mixing play dough to make different colors.
Red + Yellow = Orange
Yellow + Blue = Green
Blue + Red = Purple
And of course we couldn't go without talking about my crazy Molly! She is still as inquisitive as ever and such a joy! I love that smiling face. She loves little Noellee. Right after that second picture they both toppled over. Molly found it hilarious while Noelle found it quite tramatic! Good thing she has lots of padding! Heehee! :)
And finally, Kylie had to decorate a pumpkin for her class at school. All the first graders got to decorate one any way they wanted. Kylie wanted to make a fairy pumpkin. She painted it pink and we included loads of glitter, ribbon, purple hair, wings and even a magic wand. Kylie had so much fun making it and was rather proud of the result. Here she wanted to take a picture of her pumpkin with a plain one so we could see the before and after (just in case you haven't seen a normal pumpkin before)! :)
Kylie took it to school on Friday and came home and said, "Everyone LOVED my pumpkin! They kept looking at mine. Gosh, I don't know!" She felt pretty special and we had a ton of fun making it.
And just a little note...Kylie's pumpkin won the award for the most creative pumpkin in her 1st grade class.
