The Pumpkin Patch

Emma Caroline got to go to the Pumpkin Patch with her K4 class. They got to go on a hay ride, pick out a pumpkin, pet a lot of farm animals, have a snack (including pumpkin juice aka orange koolade) and get up on a bunch of old tractors and 4 wheelers etc... They had a blast!!! The funniest thing she said that days was when she saw an emu they had on the farm and she said "that is a really tall turkey". Her class
Sheer joy on the hayride

In my name?

When we put Emma Caroline to bed each night she says her prayers. Sometimes though she asks us to pray. Tonight was one of those nights. So, I prayed for my sweet girl and ended with "in your name I pray. Amen"

Emma Caroline turned to me, with question in her voice, and said "in my name you pray?"

One of the things I have enjoyed about living in Greenwood is Harvest time. The cotton fields look like snow. It really is beautiful. Well, it it that time of year so we took the kids out to get some pictures.
In the picture below you can see what looks like 2 big trucks in the field. These are what picks the cotton. Really an amazing thing to watch.

Wet n' Wild

OK, I know it is October and I should be posting things about pumpkins and falling leaves, but when you live in Mississippi it is still 90 in October. Matt needed to wash the car so the kids helped. The following pictures show what happens when you teach your 4 year old how to work the nozzle on the hose. I don't even know how I got these pictures because I was laughing so hard. Even though there is not one of me getting soaked, I just want to say that I fell victim to her attacks as well.
