We are continuing to enjoy all of the fun activities that fall has to offer! This week we went to a Fall Festival at Sensations Therafun with lots of activities like bounce houses, face painting, a hay ride, and rock climbing. All three of us love wearing different costumes and playing in them but for some reason, there are only pictures this week of Ryan dressed up. On Sunday we had a fun morning in the park and then Aunt Kristen came over to play with us. Kitt and Garet seem to be enjoying school and Ryan got to have a Farm Day at her school this week. A petting zoo came which Ryan liked to see but not touch! There are several fun things coming up at Coralwood including the Character Parade, the book fair and Pumpkin Patch so stay tuned! Of course next weekend is Kitt and Garet’s 5th birthday so we are really getting excited about all that involves including some special visitors. See you next week!
Happy Monday Girls! I’m happy that you’re enjoying the fall weather and all of the fun things to do outside when the weather is cooler. Poppy went camping this past weekend with some of his friends and had a good time. That climbing wall looks like lots of fun and I’d like to try doing that sometime with you. Granny and I are getting excited about coming to your house to see you all and to celebrate Kitt and Garet’s birthday this week. Garet, I heard you are not feeling well and I hope you get better very soon. Well, take care and I hope you all have a wonderful week. See you real soon! Love you lots! …Poppy
Hello Kitt, Garet and Ryan, I have had so much fun looking at your blog over and over! Every picture is so special, and I love everyone of them. Just one more day, and Poppy and I will be at your house. Can’t wait. So until tomorrow, I love you to the moon and stars and back!
We are so excited that October is here! Kitt and Garet are consistently asking if it’s the 25th yet as they are so excited for their birthday. Ryan think it’s her birthday, too. There are some good shots of Kitt and Garet’s braids and lots of fun pictures from the week. Ryan and Mommy went for their weekly visit to the Botanical Gardens and there was a giant Olaf there on display. Ryan really seems to be loving ballet more these days and also is still enjoying music class. We all had a fun play date with Adeline this week, our first friend dating all the way back to the NICU. She is doing great just like us! We went to a fun fall festival on Saturday at the place where Mommy used to work. The highlight was the cake walk where all three of us won delicious cakes! We had a really fun visit to a pumpkin patch today and picked lots of pumpkins. Mommy let us choose one big one or several little ones–let’s just say we made it home with 14 pumpkins!!! We are enjoying the cooler weather by playing outside and hope your fall is off to a fun start, too!
Look at all those pumpkins! I imagine you all had lots of fun going through the pumpkin patch to pick out just the right ones. I can’t wait to see what you are going to do with your pumpkins. Kitt and Garet, I love your new hair styles with all the braids. They really look cool! And, Ryan your head band looks really neat too. You all must have been at a fall festival because I see you have had your faces painted and were playing some games. Garet, were you using a pumpkin for a bowling ball? How did you get all those cakes? Were they tasty? Yum!!! I hope you saved some for me. I’m so happy that you are all enjoying the nice, cool, fall weather. Fall and winter is Poppy’s favorite time of year. That’s all I have for now, so take good care of yourselves and have another great week. I love you all! …Poppy
I have been eagerly awaiting your blog so I could see your braids – they are terrific. This was an especially good blog with so many fantastic pictures. I know you like this time of the year so you can pick pumpkins and go to festivals. What are you going to do with so many pumpkins? I see Kitt wasted no time on painting hers. It was also great to see Uncle Mark in the pumpkin patch, too. Garet, I like the new dress you are holding up. Did you get it for a special occasion? Ryan, I want to know if you ever take off your necklace or go anywhere without Christine!! What happened to Scout who used to be your favorite doll? Like you, I am counting down the days to your birthday. Your mom hasn’t told me the theme; but knowing her, she has made lots of preparations. This is all from Granny so I am sending lots of love and kisses.
Are you all enjoying the cooler weather? We are not all that excited about having to put away our summer clothes but we are super excited about an upcoming birthday for two of us! Every morning we ask Mommy if it is October yet. As you will see most of the pictures this week are of Ryan but it’s because Mommy was playing with the camera on Thursday when the two of them went to ballet class and then to the Botanical Gardens. On Saturday Mommy had to volunteer so Daddy took all three of us to Tellus Science Center. We had a fun time exploring a new place and learning new things. Today Mommy took Kitt and Garet to get our hair braided BUT she didn’t take any pictures of it yet! We promise there will be pictures next week. Daddy and Kitt had some special time together today, too when Mommy took Garet and Ryan to Fernbank. Of course, Ryan had some special time with Daddy when Mommy was getting the big girls’ hair braided. We had a fun week with our usual activities, too, and look forward to another week!
Thank you for your great blog; however, I was hoping to see Kitt and Garet’s new braids. But, your mommy says “next week!” Like Kitt and Garet, I can’t wait until their birthday. Special days seem to take so long in coming. It was great that Uncle Mark got into town and wasted no time in coming to see his favorite “nieces!” So, have your Halloween costumes arrived? We will be there for that special day, too. Have fun this week. I will say a prayer for you every day. Love you. Granny
Wow! These weeks seem to be flying by. Well, girls, it’s October, and you know what that means. Kitt and Garet will be celebrating their birthdays!!! I know that’s an exciting time for everyone and I can’t hardly wait to see you all and help celebrate that happy occasion. And then a week later it will be Halloween and you will be going trick-or-treating. I spoke with your Mommy earlier and she told me you were all off to find the perfect pumpkin. Did you have fun picking out just the right one? Well, that’s all I have for now, so take care and I hope you have another fun week at school and home. Love you lots! …Poppy
Ryan started her “school” this week. She was not thrilled about taking the picture but she seems to really like it. She likes her friends and teachers and loves going to the playground. She goes three mornings a week so Mommy is still trying to figure out what to do with all her “free” time. Another first was a visit to a museum in Gainesville called INK. It is a neighborhood where kids get to do everything and run everything. It was a lot of fun with activities, costumes and play areas. During the week we did all of our normal activities which included going back to swimming among other things. We spent all weekend with Mommy and Daddy going to parks, for ice cream, going to the library and on family adventures. On Saturday, Aunt Kristen played with us so Mommy and Daddy could go out to dinner alone. Of course we missed them but had a great time with Aunt Kristen. We are looking forward to another day off of school tomorrow!
Your mom can find the most unique places for you to visit. I really enjoyed this one. Was there any “profession” you liked best of all? Ryan seemed to really enjoy playing the piano. I think you girls could “handle” most of those jobs. How did your mom enjoy you cleaning her teeth and styling her hair? I noticed Pooh came along for the adventure. It was good that your mom and dad were able to have a date alone. Next to your mom and dad, Aunt Kristen is the best person to watch you as she loves you so much. I am happy to hear Ryan likes her new school. It’s especially nice that her best friend Charlotte is in the class, too. Granny is going on a long adventure this week to Peru so she hopes she can find a unique surprise to bring to you. I will be praying for you this week and sending you lots of love and kisses. I will be catching up from Peru next week. Xoxo
Hello Girls! Poppy enjoyed reading all about your weeks activities and especially seeing all the photos taken at the INK museum in Gainesville. What a neat museum! It looks like you all had fun trying out different professions. What did you enjoy doing most? Being a police woman, deputy sheriff, doctor, hair dresser, piano player, fire fighter, chef, worker or judge? Ryan, how are you enjoying ballet classes? You sure do look happy in your ballerina outfit. I hope you all had a nice Labor Day weekend and are fully rested before another week of school. Poppy was busy today working in the back yard and cleaning the back porch. It sure was hot and I’m ready for some cool fall weather. Granny left today on an extended vacation to the country of Peru. But she’ll be back in plenty of time for Kitt and Garet’s birthday. I hope you all have a great week in school and at home and I’ll be looking forward to reading your next blog. Love you lots! …Poppy
