Sweet Treats

"Aaaarrr! It was a good night, matey! We got lots of loot!"

The bee costume turned out to be too small, so we improvised with sister's ballet ensemble. She's been aching for a chance to be a dancer anyway, so all was well!

I think the neighbors were just as excited to see them in costumes as the girls were to dress up.

Spa Day on the Deck

You might guess that these were taken when the weather was a little warmer, but it's nice to remember those lazy days of summer, right?

This foot bath was just so intriguing to these little misses. What a wondrous contraption!

Spiced Pumpkin

I love the colours of fall so much I can hardly stand it! Here's a little autumn scarflette that I just added to my shop ~ just need a little whipped cream and freshly ground nutmeg to go with it.

Early Fall Bonfire

We're fond of a good blaze now and then.

Jungle Gym And a New Friend

We like to take walks to get the mail, and on this day we stopped to climb on the pile of logs beside the driveway. And Mama was playing with the black and white feature on the camera.

And, oh joy! Whom do you think we discovered playing here too? A little lost kitten who found plenty of companionship in these two little girls. We thought we were his new family, but alas, the family down the drive decided to adopt him. Maybe their dogs don't harass him so much, although we were quite amused at the way this kitten seemed to tame our big, rambunctious Doberman. Leroy would run at him and rudely shove him with his nose, expecting the kitty to react the way our cats do ~ hissing, swatting, and turning tail ~ you know, good fun for a dog. This tiny cat just purred and snaked himself around his legs. Leroy, dumbfounded, just gave up.

"Someone" does keep asking me where the little black and white kitty is. Every day. They were solid friends for a while, sitting under the picnic table for over an hour happily snuggling and purring. I could hear Rae quietly chattering to him about everything she knew.

I really hope he'll be allowed to visit.

Leaf Walk

Come tramp through the dripping grasses and glistening spider webs with us to see the beautiful autumn leaves. Isn't October such a glorious month?!

The Tortoise Wears Heels

One little girl was playing on the floor in the sewing room (Mama's new play room) and I turned around to find this glamorous turtle ~ which cracked me up.

The Pumpkin Patch

On our way to find some good gourds.

"This smallish half~green one looks just right for me!"

And Raegan chooses an oddly shaped fellow.

Mommy and Daddy were boring and picked bright orange, uniformly shaped orbs.

I wonder if they realize these cows are fake...

Some fun while we wait for Daddy to pay for the pumpkins.

The Dirt

If there's a patch of earth to be found, these little ones will find it...and wear it.
