On Sunday Sydney wore this beautiful dress Grandma Astle gave her.  I can't believe she fits into it already! 
 She looked so adorable.  She really liked playing with the dress.  She would grab the silky top layer and stick it in her mouth.
 Monday night we had some company over and made some  little Frankensteins.  (dyed pudding and crushed cookies).  This fun idea comes from Mel's Kitchen cafe (whose chef just happens to be Rob's cousin- and my claim to knowing someone famous)  We certainly love her amazing cooking blog.  You can check it out at http://www.melskitchencafe.com/.  Unfortunately the kids that I was trying to impress with this fun treat were a little grossed out by the green color and wouldn't eat it.  (My kids ate it just fine- I guess they saw me making it and knew it was pudding!)

 This little whippersnapper is just a few accidents away from being potty trained.  We started training (again!) last week and this time he took to it much more readily.  He has not had an accident in two days and has even started letting me know when he has to go.  Woohoooooo!

Autumn tradition

Monday night we made caramel apples!  Ummmm they were so good.

Rob took over the task and was the chef for the evening.  He created some beautiful and tasty apples for all of us.  His expression portrays some slight annoyance.  This was probably the sixth picture he had posed for as each previous shot I took turned out blurry.  Does anyone else have that problem with digital cameras?  I hold the button down half way until it focuses and then snap the picture, but it seems the majority of the time they come out blurry. 
Anyhow, here are a couple non-blurry pictures of Sydney.  She is such a big girl now enjoying her excersaucer.

Catch up

Here are some pictures of what we have been up to lately.

Picking our first peaches off our tree.

We all participated in the Harvest Classic Fun Run.  It was a one mile run around a park.
Cute kids!
