Maddie's First Field Trip

Maddie had her first kindergarten field trip yesterday! We went to the pumpkin patch and corn maze in Marsing. It was so fun to see her with her little friends that she has made and see her in her "new world". She is so cute with her 2 best friends, Lacy and Naomi!
We started with the corn maze of nursery rhymes and then saw some farm animals and the kids ran through a hay bail maze. Then they picked out their pumpkins....Maddie's is "medium sized" as she stated to Ryan and then we went on a hay ride. Maddie thought that it was awesome that I got to ride on the bus with her. There is a reason why kids ride buses and adults do not. BUMPY!
My hat is off to those kindergarten teachers who deal with the loud, excited voices and wiggly bodies day in and day out! They are great. Maddie's teacher is especially awesome. I am so happy that Maddie is where she is at for her first school experience.

Painting Pumpkins and Front Loaders!!!

We had a super fun weekend...first of all my sweet husband, as he would say, "Heard the hints loud and clear", that our washer and dryer were on their way to the cemetary and took me to R.C. Willey and let me pick out a brand new washer and dryer, I chose the Whirlpool Duet Front Loaders. (He had actually done a lot of research and was prepared with lots of info for me.) My very first brand new pair! I feel like such a big girl now. They are beautiful and hold massive amounts of laundry!! He has even been eager to do the laundry the last couple of days, it's all about the new toys at our house.....would the same thing happen if we got brand new toilets???

Next, Gramma Lee Lee and Aunt Sydnie came over on Sunday for the annual painting of the pumpkins. They have started this fun tradition with the girls that each Halloween they paint little pumpkins, the girls look forward to it all year (and so do Lee Lee and Sydnie!). They had a blast and the girls go out on the porch every day and remind me whose is whose!
