Little Wind-up Doll

This year Penny was just old enough to for the ward trunk or treat activity.  Unfortunately, it was too close to bedtime, so our little doll was impatient and a grumpy.  She never quite figured the whole trick or treating thing out but we still have tonight to try again!  
Penny loved her little pumpkin bucket!  She has been carrying it around the house and filling it with toys, leaves, sticks, and trash.  I am excited to take her out again tonight on her time schedule so she will be able to enjoy it more.  But it's really more for me at this age! In a few years, once she understands what is going on better, I am sure she will come to love Halloween as much as I do!  It will be nice to have an ally in the house since Andrew doesn't care for it.  Hopefully, Penny and her little sister will convince Andrew to dress up next year!

Happy Halloween!

Ducks and Donuts

One of our favorite family outings is a trip to the park with a box of yummy donuts.  Andrew goes for a run while Penny and I play at the park and then we meet back up and hang out with the ducks.  This time we remembered to bring some bread.  Penny seemed to think that the bread was a snack for her.  She ate all the bread we gave her to throw to the ducks and kept trying to pick up and eat the pieces Andrew threw.

Bread for the ducks and donuts for us!

Cherry Tomatoes

Penny has loved picking and eating the cherry tomatoes from our garden.  She wasn't always such a big fan but the fun of picking tomatoes helped change her mind.  Now she loves them!  She will even eat big tomatoes like an apple.  

First Pigtails

When Andrew came home and saw Penny's pigtails he said, "What did you do to my baby??"  For him, the pigtails make Penny look older.  For me, I just think she looks adorable! 

Meanwhile, this is what I get for taking Penny outside for pictures while she is wearing new cream-colored jeans:
