Painting Pumpkins and Gourds

I gave the girls the choice of carving, coloring with markers, or paint and glitter for their pumpkins from Camp Fontanelle.  They chose paint and glitter.  I was thinking just pumpkins but they chose to decorate the gourds too.  They are beautifully painted and covered in glitter.  Maggie's are on the yellow tray and Mena's are on the green tray.

Camp Fontanelle

Maggie was inspecting the huge ear of corn.  She was fascinated with all the corn!  You can see Sammy through the cut out at the top.

The girls found gourds they wanted to keep, but we told them we didn't want to carry them around.  They found this spot to hide them.  They were still there when we came back!

The girls reading the sizes and prices of pumpkins.

Mena and Maggie entering the corn maze.

Maggie stopped every couple of feet to touch an ear while she said, "corn!"  She repeatedly said, "corn, corn, corn" like it was so amazing to her to see so much in one place.

Sammy did the zipline while my girls pretended.

How awesome to have a slide coming off the deck of the lodge!!

Hay rack ride to the other side of the farm and a tour of the farm.

Sunday afternoon, I laid Maggie down for a nap.  I went out to play with Mena but she seemed to want to play by herself so I went to my bedroom to do some journaling.  I fell asleep instead.  I remember Mena coming in with her camera saying the battery was dead.  I laid it on my notebook and told her I'd charge it in a little bit.  I evidently fell back into a deeper sleep.  I didn't hear Mena get into the closet.  She used a step stool to reach my purse and my good camera.  She took about 50 pictures of me sleeping and I slept through it all.  Maggie woke up and came in to wake me up.  Pictures of me sleeping are not nearly as cute as the girls!

Rosemont Preschool Celebration

Maggie was excited to see me at her preschool celebration.  The whole school sang a couple songs together and then each class went up to the front to sing a song.

I got out of the shower Monday morning to find two little girls snuggling in my bed.
