Leah's into stuff again

I already posted once about Leah getting into the vegtables I brought home from the store. Here is another example. She decided to eat parts of not one, but 6 apples even biting through the bag even though one end of the bag was open. You would think we don't feed her.

This was after we got out the Halloween pumpkins after Heath's birthday the other night. She decided to flip them over and stand on them. The rims are not flat either, they wobble where the handles are. This took her many tries and she did it over and over for at least an hour.

Brianna's Biking

Brianna finally decided about a month ago to have daddy take off her training wheels. She had been scared to do it but now wants to be like the big neighborhood kids. She was so frustrated the first day but riding like a pro on her second day without training wheels. Amazing how quickly she picked it up. It just took a little confidence.

Happy Birthday Daddy!

Happy 36th birthday to my wonderful husband on October 19th! The kids were almost as excited about his birthday as their own. As long as they get cake they are happy. We made a homemade very yummy Tres Leches cake and the kids made lots of signs for daddy!

Thanks mom and dad!

Mom and Dad came to stay with us for 3 days. Mom helped watch the kids and clean while dad helped with some carpentry work. Heath also took off a day to get some things done. Here's what is now done on our new house.

Dad built this beautiful bench for our kitchen before he came and stained it once he got here. We needed the extra storage and sitting room with 7 at the table soon. He also installed a banister low enough for the kids on the basement stairs since Leah already fell down once.

These storage shelves were much needed in our unfinished basement.

He also added extra storage space to our walk in attic which takes up about half of the upstairs of our house and installed a door on our garage storage closet. Thanks!!!!
