Pumpkin Patch OK Style

We made a trip to OK this weekend to see my parents and have our holiday pictures taken.  On Saturday before the OSU game, we went out to a pumpkin patch.  It was COLD and WINDY when we got there, and we were not prepared, but Scarlett had a blast which is all that matters, right!? We went on a hay ride, fed some animals, complained about the wind, went through a muddy corn maze, picked out some pumpkins to take home, complained about the mud, and best of all....Scarlett rode her first pony!








Daddy and Scarlett and their boots!




Practicin' her rodeo moves. 







 



They have "nighttime" corn maze adventures....can you imagine!? No thanks. 




 Scarlett shot down this slide; good thing Pa was there to catch her.  
After coming down she said, "I'm a space ship!"



My new shoes, boo hoo. 


Even though I stayed by Scarlett when she rode the pony, I was very surprised she liked it so much.  When she got on she said, "Yee haw!"  I tell ya, this kid is a riot.





 Scarlett's dorky parents...



Blurry, but the best family shot of the day so I had to include it.

Getting Ready for Halloween

Scarlett is getting more into Halloween this year.  Last year, she went trick-or-treating for the first time, but had no clue what was going on.  I let her have one sucker then threw the rest of the candy away, and she had no idea. I'm sure that won't be the case this time around.  She's very into asking what everyone is going to be for Halloween this year and she loves noticing all the pumpkins and decorations that are out.  They're going to paint pumpkins in preschool this week too which I'm sure she'll love.

This year she is going to be a cowgirl! We got her some real live pink cowboy boots from the western store, a pink hat, and a little western skirt ensemble. She originally said she wanted to be a princess, but I figured she has plenty of time for that, and that this might the last year I can fully control her costume. She wears the new boots all day around the house so I think it was a great idea.  I figured she would continue to wear it all for dress-up even after Halloween too which helped me justify the cost of it all!

Here's some digital scrapbook pages I just finished of her first two years.




And a small sneak peak I took with my phone of her in 1/2 of the costume for this year....she would NOT sit still... I think it will be a fun Halloween!

Miss Personality

This little video is a perfect example of Scarlett's funny personality. I snuck up on her when she was entertaining herself the other day and singing her preschool songs. She loves to sing the songs she's learning there. It's still weird to me to hear her sing songs I don't know and that I didn't teach her. She has to teach me the new ones she learning! Also, you'll notice she's got her pjs on, but she has her dress-up jewelry on, her sunglasses, and some random shoes too.  She plays dress up ALL day like this. I swear, every time she comes out of her room throughout the day, she's got a different get-up on!
