We had such a fun week as always! At the beginning of the week, Daddy took Garet to the cupcake place all by herself while Mommy and Kitt stayed at home with Ryan and made hats. It was fun for everyone! We also got lots of outside playing time this week because the weather was so nice. Ryan always loves watching her big sisters play. Of course, Kitt and Garet had gymnastics, swim lessons and art class while Ryan got to play in another new toy. Ryan also turned 5 months old today! She is getting so big and growing in lots of other ways, too. On Saturday, we all went to pick out our pumpkins. It was fun to see all of the different sizes and shapes of pumpkins and to take pictures. Ryan dressed up like a pumpkin for the event, too, and as you can see it really wore her out! Finally, on Sunday we all went to Sautee to spend the day. We went to church and then had a picnic with Bob, Aene Forrest, Bess and Will. Kitt and Garet remembered playing with Will and Bess a few months ago at our house so they were especially excited to see them again. This was Ryan’s first trip to Sautee, and she seemed to have a great time, too. We are looking forward to another fun week and will see you next week to tell you all about it.
Fall has definitely arrived in Atlanta with pumpkins and fallen leaves. What fun you must have had picking out pumpkins. Now I’ll be eager to see how you decorate your individual ones. Ryan, you were adorable in your pumpkin outfit. You blended right in the patch! Who will paint Ryan’s pumpkin? What good helpers you were to gather leaves and put them in the wagon. Kitt, I’m happy to see you devised a way to strap Bear on to your tricycle – have Bear will travel everywhere! There is a lot of PURPLE in this week’s blog – I love your new jackets. They should keep you warm when it gets colder. Your mom’s favorite color was purple – even the walls in her bedroom were purple so I know who you take after in that regard!. Who put the soccer ball in Ryan’s walker? That doesn’t give her much room to move around. Did someone throw it to her? Your friends in Sautee definitely had a lot of things for you to play with – even had instruments for your own band and Garet got to practice “walking on the balance beam!” Happy birthday, Ryan, and now I can’t wait to celebrate the next birthday for Kitt and Garet. I’ll be praying for you this week, and I send you lots of love and kisses. Granny
All Poppy can say is Wow! What a great week you all had. Poppy loved reading all about your activities and especially enjoyed looking at all the photos of you. It seemed like you had lots of fun in the pumpkin patch. And Ryan, you were so cute in your pumpkin outfit too. Kitt and Garet, I could almost hear the notes from your musical instruments all the way down here in Pensacola. You’ll have to play a song for me next time I see you. I’m happy you were able to see your friends in Sautee too. Were the leaves on the trees starting to turn colors yet? If so, I can only imagine how beautiful that must have been. I’m looking forward to your next blog. Until then, be good, have fun and know that Poppy loves you all!!!
