Carving a Pumpkin...

This evening we carved our pumpkin for Halloween. Last year Kylie dove head first into the challenge, but this year it took quite a bit of coaxing for her to get her hands dirty. She of course wanted Daddy to do all of the work. Kylie did have fun though, especially when it came to taking pictures and turning the pumpkin light on and off. Now it sits on our front porch as we hope it does not end up splattered on the sidewalk or taking a joyride with the neighborhood kids.

Halloween Bash at Bowie High School...

Today we joined Andrea, Will, Aiden and Josephina at the Halloween Festival at Bowie High School. The kiddos had plenty of candy as they played the various games and had a pizza picnic. Kylie also had a blast dancing to the many bands that played in the Courtyard. She seems to be looking forward to Halloween this year so today was a great treat.

Granny's Birthday...

On Saturday we took a quick trip to celebrate Granny's Birthday. We got to visit her apartment, eat a yummy meal and of course Granny got to open presents. Kylie also got to see MelMel and Papa. What fun it always is to spend time with family.

On Friday afternoon we drove to Christoval to attend Meme and BigBud's SURPRISE RETIREMENT PARTY. Since we got there a bit early we took Kylie to the park, where she had a blast throwing rocks into the river and watching the fish. As soon as Meme and BigBud finish the house they are building maybe Ky can get in some fishing time!!!

Pumpkin Patch

A few weeks ago, Cody and I took Ky to the store and let her pick out her costume for Halloween. Out of everything there she chose "Goldilocks", how perfect is that! So, today we tried out her costume and took Kylie down to the Pumpkin Patch in Buda, where she ran up and down the rows of pumpkins and picked the one for her and Daddy to carve for Halloween. She even picked out a baby pumpkin to color. It was so much fun!

Texas Parks & Wildlife EXPO 2008

Today we went to the Texas Parks & Wildlife EXPO. We have gone every year since we have lived in Austin and believe it or not it is just as fun each time we go. This year Kylie was old enough to do some of the activities. She was so excited about fishing since Daddy promised her this morning that she could see lots of fishies. With Cody's help Kylie did in fact catch her very first fish, a trout... Unfortunately I did not get a picture of the fish.

Although Kylie was partial to the fish, she did stop long enough to see some of the other "wildlife" they had on exhibit. The snakes were too scary so we stuck close to the ground and examined the turtles and of course the bird dogs.

Kylie also had fun playing around in the TPWD Helicopter. I guess she takes after Cody, he loves to go flying and so does she.
