Halloween 2007

This is the best picture I have of Asha in her costume. She was a biker girl. She did not like trick or treating at all. She wanted every piece of candy opened immediately and when we would not comply she would throw a fit all the way to the next house. Once she did finally realize that there was more candy to come she was better well atleast until we came to the house of the mean man wearing a scary mask. After that she was done. She would not go up to anymore houses unless daddy or mommy carried her. Brother wasn't a good enough protector from the evil I guess. We would not have minded carrying her except those cute little pants she's wearing were flaking terribly bad and anyone who touched her got covered in head to toe fake leather flakes. I regret even buying them off of ebay and we threw them away before we would even let her in the house.

She did however really like handing out candy once we got home. She was not afraid of the kids in costumes and would even greet them by their costume "hi demon!!" "hi pirate!!" and so on. She even started handing out candy for us and would chase the kids down when they attempted to leave because she wanted to give them more candy.

One of Asha's friends stopped over to trick or treat as well. They are just so darn cute together. They were both giving us a run for our money. One would run one way and the other would run the other way. It's fun though to see them interact with eachother.

My husband took 2 really cute pictures of her while we were waiting for trick or treaters that I just want to share.

It was a fun day after we got home. It was just a rough time getting to the fun part.

Hope everyone had a fun Halloween!!!

Mamma D's Birthday

Tomorrow is Mamma D's birthday so I thought it would be cute to take a picture of Asha with a sign wishing her Mamma D a Happy Birthday and then sending it to her through a slideshow on Smilebox. We also sent her a small rose bush in a pot.

I am sooo happy that I found Smilebox because now Mamma D is using it to send us pictures as well. It is so nice to be able to show Asha pictures of her brother and sister.

We've been pretty busy around here so I haven't been blogging much. I will hopefully have some cute Halloween pictures to post next week for everyone to see.

Here's just a few other pictures I thought were cute that I've taken in the last week.

This is Asha at her brother's band concert. I had to take her out because Grandma told her no right when brother's band was going to start playing and she started to cry so loud that everyone was staring at us. I was sooo embarrassed.

I just love the color red on her. It is definately her color!!

Fall Fun Fest

The local Community Center had it's first Fall Fun Fest and we took Asha. There wasn't a whole lot going on when we got there but we did get her face painted and had some good hot apple cider. They also had cute homemade hats there that daddy just had to buy her. He is such a sucker when it comes to his little girl. He spoils her so much but I love to see it!!
Well here's what you really want to see..... pictures!!

She just gets so darn serious sometimes. She didn't crack a smile the whole time she was getting her face painted. She barely moved. The finished product. She loves stars.The Community Center is right next to the school so we took her over to the playground and let her play for a while. I just love this picture so much!!This has nothing to do with the Fall Fun Fest but she was wearing these ears the other day saying "sassy bunny". I always ask if she's being sassy if she's in a mood. That apparently is her new favorite word because now everyone is "sassy".This is the new hairstyle I gave her on Sunday. I did this once before but with pink yarn so you couldn't really see it but WOW can you see it with the red. My girl looks like a red head.

Pumpkin Hunting!!

We took the kids to the pumpkin patch for the very first time today and we all had a great time. We did the corn maze and got lost. We never did find the exit so we went back out through the entrance.

After that we went for a horse drawn wagon ride to get our pumpkins. Asha took a very long time trying to find the "right" pumpkin. We would show her one and she would come over by us and we would say "do you want to take this one home?" and she would say "no" and walk away. We did this for a while and she finally found a winner.

Here are the pictures of her adventure in pumpkin hunting.

This is Asha studying the pumpkin before giving her "no" vote on taking it home. She took choosing her pumpkin very seriously. This pumpkin was the winner. A perfect little pumpkin for the perfect little girl. Notice the serious face. Pumpkin hunting is a very serious thing.It was hard work looking for and carrying that pumpkin. LOL She needed to rest so big brother got her a wagon and pulled her around. Doesn't she look exhausted?? LOLFinally home with the winning pumpkin. She was very iffy about letting us put her pumpkin on the front porch after all the hard work she did getting it.

In case any of you noticed that HUGE pumpkin in the wagon that is Dakota's pumpkin that he worked very hard at finding. It was so heavy it didn't even register on the scales. It was 30 + pounds and only cost us $5. He was very proud of himself for finding what he thinks is the biggest pumpkin they had. Here's a picture of him trying to carry it back to the wagon.We can't wait to see him carve it out tomorrow!! That should be a good show!

We also decorated Halloween cookies tonight and I will post pictures probably tomorrow. It was Asha's first time and she made a pretty big mess but had so much fun!!

Camera Please!!

There is a cute little story that goes along with this picture.

I was leaning on the counter in our kitchen making out my step son's chore list and Asha climbed up on the stool across the counter from me and sat down all nice and pretty like and says to me "mom please get the camera" I start to laugh and ask her "why?" She says again "please get the camera" so I get the camera and she gives me the above face and says "cheeeeese". It was just too funny.

Like I've said the girl knows how to get what she wants.

She also had gymnastics again on Tuesday and was doing he dare devil gymnastics on the bars there and the coach at the end of practice was telling me how very very strong Asha is. I told her that she does all of the tricks on the bars at home on our bed. The coach was very amazed at how strong Asha is. Another mother there said she could see why we put Asha in gymnastics.

Asha's New House!!

My husband is the luckiest person in the world. Alot of the work he does is in fields that people don't regularly travel in and he came across a child's play cabin completely put together in the middle of one such field. The closest thing to it was the highway. He thinks that it must have blown off of someone's truck and landed in the field. Of course being the daddy that he is he took it apart and brought it home for his little girl who was instantly in love with her new house.

Here are some pictures of her enjoying her new house.
Daddy took this picture and did a really good job. I was really impressed with the pictures he took. Normally I'm the one behind the camera doing the picture taking.

She was just so excited. Can't you just see it in her face. She was beyond herself with joy.

Here she is peaking out of the roof daddy made for her. The roof that was on it was just a mesh thing that was beyond gross so he threw it away.

When asked if she wanted to go back upstairs she said "NO" and ran back in her house to play some more. We've been spending alot of time her not yet complete play room since the house arrived.
