Pumpkin Patch 2008

It was a beautiful fall evening tonight and we finally went and got our pumpkin. We love sharing this time as a family each year. We are making memories and loving every moment.

Camden had such fun picking out her pumpkin. She was looking for just the "perfect" one. After a good 25 mins Camden pointed to this bright orange pumpkin with warts all over it. I couldn't bring myself to purchase it and told Camden we needed a smooth one for carving. She smiles "okay" and moved right along looking for her pumpkin. As I watched her looking around I thought about her first pick for her "perfect" pumpkin. It made me thank God for her sweet spirit and how she didn't see that pumpkin as ugly or full of warts like I did.

Berkleigh had a wonderful time. Following Camden around the pumpkin patch. I am pretty sure she touched every pumpkin there. She would rub one, then pat another and sometimes try to pick them up. I guess it's kind of like picking out a good cantaloupe. You squeeze it, smell it, etc. Have to find just the right one.

Once the pumpkins were picked the girls took a seat. I mean..on their pumpkins. Camden's first year she sat on several pumpkins until she found hers.It was a riot! Now we take a photo every year with her sitting on her pumpkin. Berkleigh too!

Pep Rally~ GO VIKINGS!

Today was Camden's first Pep rally and it was Great! Her squad, Extra small stars, got to cheer with the "Big" Girls. They had a blast! I can't believe my five year old was dismissed early to get ready for pep rally. Don't we do this in high school?

It was wonderful. There was loud music, the older Cheerleaders dance and cheered, the volleyball team ran through a spirit poster, the teachers had a competition(3 legged race) and... more cheering.There was the school mascot...The Viking, dancing around the gym too. Berkleigh could have done fine without him. She was stuck to me like glue! So worried he was going to get too close. The 6th grade won the spirit stick for the loudest cheering. They deserve it! I was standing right in front of them and Goodness they screamed!

At the very end of all this spirit and cheering were the little girls. First the small stars cheered (2,3,4,5 grade) Then came my baby! Her team the Extra small stars cheered "2 Bits" She rocked! The entire gym jumped up to their feet after they cheered!How fun!She looks adorable in her uniform. I made her and her girl friends hair bows with their names. They think that they are too cool. Well.....I Do Too!

Berkleigh loves to cheer with sissy! She actually is pretty good! Momma made her an outfit too! She is a "Tiny Star". She loves to watch Camden at practice and Pep Rally. It's too funny when she mimics her! Yeah!!!!!!!

Aunt Natasha come to Texas

Aunt Natasha came to visit 2 weeks ago and we all had a blast. We were so excited to see her and the week went by way too fast. We hung around the house, went to the pool, shopped, and did a whole lot of nothing together! It was great. Berkleigh remembered Natasha instantly. She calls her "Tata"! Camden loved having her Aunt Tash back for a while and was bummed she still had to go to school while she was here. We had a great time making bows and getting caught on some crafts.We made matching candy corn skirts for all the girls.Too Cute! While we were out looking around downtown we found a great little antique shop."The Tattered Suitcase" We fell in love with everything in there. It was to eclectic! We went to a HUGE mall in Houston. 3 stories high, ice skating rink in the middle, OH MY! All in all we had a great time and miss Aunt Natasha a lot. Hugs and Kisses!

Our new page~

Camden hope and I stayed up past her bed time to change our blog. I love spending BIG girl time with her. She is my little me. She makes me smile. She thought it was so great to help Momma with her "blog". She said,"This is so cool momma. Now you have 3 blogs!" "I do?" "Yes. this one, facebook and my space" Whoa! How did she know that? They listen a lot more then we think at times. I think my internet diva will be selling on Ebay and having her own blog before she is 6yrs! Welcome to the 20th Century my love!

So Big....

Berkleigh you are getting too big. I caught you the other morning trying to get out the front door. You could barely reach the handle. I giggled as I watched you reach and reach on your tip toes. You walked away to watch television and returned moments later with the stool from the bathroom. Thank the Lord the door was locked! Where were you wanting to go? How big of you to think about getting the stool to help you! So Big.....
