ol kris kringle

i am ol kris kringle, i'm the king of jingling. jingle, jingle reindeer. through the frosty air they'll go.:
we took our two little babes to see santa
 at the mall a few weeks ago.
nora was in awe of him
kayl wasn't interested at all.

my mom told me that she has a picture
very similar to these.
of my brother spencer & i.
i guess he didn't like santa either.

i guess the love for jolly ol' saint nick
 is something that comes with time.

i am loving that nora is into 
Christmas this year. 
she is always saying , "it's Christmas!" 
its simply wonderful.

they're the fastest 
deer i know.

teeny tiny halloweenie

the witches fly across the sky,
the owls go "who, who, who",
the black cats yowl,
& green ghosts howl:

this year's halloween was great!
nora was terrified at our church party,
but warmed up to the idea of trick or treating by halloween night.
she was in complete heaven going door to door with
jack & janie.
she said "trick or treat"
"thank you".
{i must be doing something right}
she also said,
"this is cool, hu?"

bkayl was along for the ride.
he is such a little trooper & most always in a great mood.

i made their costumes in one day...
only because i procrastinated to the last minute.

on to the photos.
my little tinkerbell checkin' it out.

peterpan clung to my hip.

little miss janie as tangled's rapunzel.

baby ben as a little bat.

jack the fireman.

ellie as a punk rocker skeleton.

chloe as another punk rocker skeleton.

& crew as a baby skeleton.

something or someone scared her
& it was all down hill from there.

halloween night: trick or treating



can't wait for next year's festivities.
happy halloween!

scary halloween to you!

a place called sutherland

never jump into a pile of leaves:
in the midst of all the work that paul has been doing,
we found some time to go to sutherland farms as a family.
it was great.
the kids had a wonderful time... i think.

{we took over 200 photos... so choosing just a few was hard to do.
here is just a smidgen of what we got.}

for some reason
this little scarecrow's nose was fun to squeeze.

bkayl loves animals
& i love the expression on his face looking at the chickens.

my little tiny is 3 feet small.
{about half my height}

loving the goats.
& feeding them corn illegally from the corn pit.

the corn pit.
nora could live in here.
she loved the slide.
& i loved watching her have an awesome time
playing in corn.
bkayl seemed to like it too...
he may have eaten a handful or two.
so yummy.

we went to pick out a couple of pumpkins for carving...
but my sweet nora wasn't interested.
she didn't want to get out of the yellow wagon,
in fear that bkayl might somehow take it over.
we managed to get a couple of shots at the pumpkin patch
but none as a family.

i love this time of year
when we get to celebrate holidays
that focus spending time together as a family.

i love my little mcphee family.

till next year sutherland farms!
