Our pumpkin adventures start here with a hay ride down to the pumpkin patch...


Very bright sun on this gorgeous 70 degree October day!

Doesn't Lyla look like a grown up girl here?!

Ruby isn't that far behind

SNOW!

It's been snowing for nearly a week straight at our place. We have over a foot of snow...lots of fun for snowhouses...

The whole family got out to play.

Girls Day Out

Last week the girls took a trip down to the Seattle Science Center.

Lyla especially loved the butterfly house...

...and the water station.
Ruby was a really good sport and hung out in her pack the whole time.
Fun day!

Fall Update

I accidentally uploaded these pictures in the wrong order... so here's looking back at August through October in reverse...
Carving our pumpkin



Bubbleface

It's cool to have a science teacher dad...here Lyla and dad are blowing up bubbles filled with CO2.

We were so excited that Lyla is old enough to enjoy Halloween.


Our annual trip to the pumpkin patch turned out to be another amazingly beautiful fall day!
Grammy B came too!

Who cares if it's freezing, I'll take ice cream over hot chocolate any day!

Baby Ruby came too, but stayed wrapped up tight.





Sweet sisters


Ruby's baby blessing...lots of family got to come! Thanks everybody!!!

Ruby is super smiley!

Enjoying our yard...




First bath

Lyla likes to take care of her own babies too.



At the fair

We are all doing really well. It has been a wonderful first 3 months with Ruby. We sure do love our little girls!
