Duck, Frog, or Bird??

Josie just asked me, "Mom, is this frog tape, bird tape, or duct tape?" Her pronunciation of duct was duck . She keeps us laughing all the time.

Mr & Mrs. Simon

I'm just slightly behind on updating the blog...Brandon and Jen have now been married for week. They actually get back from their Costa Rican honeymoon tonight. Doesn't that sound nice? Their wedding was gorgeous which was expected. Jen did a great job picking out decorations and it wasn't too hard for her to look beautiful for the day!...and Brandon, you looked handsome also. Congratulations and welcome into the family Jen.
This is one of the many pictures I took of Josie and Maddox tackling each other. Maddox would run after Josie and give her a huge bear hug which resulted in a crash to the floor then Josie would chase Maddox and do the same thing. This went on for a long time and gave many people a few laughs. Josie and Maddox are good buds because they both go to the same babysitter.

We were able to borrow a tux from a friend (thanks Lori!) for Grant. He sure did look like a handsome little man.

Several times throughout the night I had people call me Danielle and Danielle was called Jessi. After looking at this picture I can see how it would have been a VERY easy mistake to mix us up.

Look How Much We've Grown

These pictures were taken a year apart at the Russia Picnic. Just one year ago I remember thinking how excited I was to get Josie's hair into a little pony tail. I didn't realize how much her hair had grown in one year until I looked at these pictures.

Weeks 17-20

After looking back at these pictures, I guess I need to pay more attention to what outfits I put him in for the photo shoot!

The Fall Season

Fall is definitely one of those seasons that doesn't last long enough. I love the cool nights and, but not so cold that it requires gloves, hats, etc. The leaves, pumpkins, and making chili are some of the best parts of fall.
Last Sunday we tried out a new place called Brumbaugh Fruit Farm in Arcanum. Scott and Melissa joined us along with their girls. Josie and Annabelle had their fill of fall activities; we took a hayride out to a pumpkin patch, checked out a turkey, pig (both were enormous) rabbits and goats, played in the corn sand box, a took a walk through storybook forest, and tried out their apple cider slush.
