Paige had her first movie night last night. We let her stay up late (and by late, I mean until 8:40pm) to watch the Charlie Brown Halloween special. It was lots of fun, we made popcorn and the three of us sat on the couch together. Paige thought it was pretty neat to watch cartoons late at night and of course she loved the popcorn, she kept saying, "it's a nice treat!"
Even though we have moved to the DC area, we are still huge Stars fans (that would be hockey for those that don't know). This past weekend, the Stars played the Washington Capitals in their only game of the season, so of course we had to sport our favorite team's gear. Paige's Popi had this jersey made for her the day he found out he was having a grandaughter, complete with her name and birth year. It only took about two and a half years for her to grow into it, but she sure looks cute in it now. For those who like to keep score, I'm sad to report that the Stars lost to the Capitals, but hey, it's still early in the season.
We've had lots of visitors since we moved. This weekend Aunt Kendi came to visit and we spent the day at Cox Farms. There was so much to do, including a 1007 lbs. pumpkin. Check it out, it was bigger than Paige. We had fresh apples for a morning snack. Paige was a sticky mess after that.
We saw lots of animals while we were there including lots of piglets, cows, sheep, and turkeys!
Paige loved climbing the hay stacks. She's such a show off.
Paige's favorite part of the day was slides. There were all kinds and after every one, she would jump up and down and say "again"!!!
We walked through this big corn maze too, but don't worry, we didn't get too lost.
Paige wanted her face painted like all the other kids, so mom put on her artistic hat and painted a big orange pumpkin.
Before it was time to go, we had to pick out our pumpkins. First we picked out some little ones.
Then we went to find a big one. Paige really wanted one that was as big as her.
She even tried to hug the one she wanted and pick it up herself.
Finally, she and daddy picked out a perfect one.
We had a great day and soon it was time to go home. Thanks for visiting our site, come back soon!
Last month, we packed up our house in Texas and headed East. We've landed in Virginia in the DC area and have been very busy over the past month, getting settled in and unpacked! It took us three days to drive across country, but we finally made it and this is our new home. It has lots of stairs (something our other house didn't have), but it's finally starting to feel like home.
Paige was really good during our move, she especially like eating breakfast on the floor of the living room before our furniture arrived.
Once the boxes were delivered, she had a great time playing in all the paper. There was so much packing material that sometimes Paige got lost in mess. She didn't mind though, she always crawled out laughing and giggling.
The boxes were fun to play in also. We left one for her to build a "house" out of . It was decorated beautifully with crayon and even had a window.
Of course it was really nice when all her toys were unpacked, especially her princess stuff. She's such a girly, girl.
Anytime you all are in the DC area, we would love for you to come by and visit. We're finding more fun and exciting things to do every day.
Let's face it, this blog is mostly about me, but in case you were wondering, here's a little more. I'm Amanda. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, and a sister. I believe that family is the most important thing in life and the only thing you can always count on. After 6 years in the Army and 27 months in Iraq, 007 took a civilian job and we moved to the DC suburbs. We stay busy raising our two beautiful children and trying to say one step ahead. Our life is a rollercoaster, the kind that makes you laugh and cry, throw your hands in the air and scream, and then say "more please!"
