My Little What?

At the risk of sounding silly and juvenile, I write this post. But it's Halloween, and everyone who knows me usually finds out at some point that I collect ponies and that I moderate at a pony forum, so there.

It's become a tradition at the MLP Arena to switch up people's user names for Halloween. This morning I had a wonderful surprise waiting for me from a fellow mod when I logged in.

Oh what a name.

I'm now TwinkleLittlePoo!

Happy Halloween everyone!!

Pumpkin Patch

This past Saturday we took the girls to the pumpkin patch. There were loads of activities - a petting zoo, pony rides, a bounce house, and even a haunted house! Ava and Norah only wanted to see the animals in the petting zoo and jump in the bounce house. After they were sufficiently worn out, we chose our pumpkins to carve and were on our way! We'll carve them probably tomorrow or Friday - whenever we have time, LOL!

Keira and Me:

Aboard the what?

Ava has preschool three days a week. Today the theme was "exploration." In addition to learning about Chirstopher Columbus and various places in the world, they made ships out of cardboard boxes. (They were pretty cool, IMO). Using dowels and posterboard, sails were made to go on each ship. The teacher asked each child what they wanted to christen their ship.

And what did Ava choose?

USS Scooby-Doo.

Gotta love her personality!

Keira - 5 months

Our little baby is now five months old! I can't believe it. Time just flies by so quickly. She is such a cutie-patootie. In addition to rolling, she grabs her toes and sucks on them. It's quite hilarious to watch. Still no teeth, but that doesn't surprise me - her older sisters didn't cut their first teeth until the 9/10 month mark, so that's probably when they'll start to show.

Ava and Norah love to play with her. Ava has now started to call her "Keira Koo-Koo." I'm trying to thwart that nickname. (But my efforts are in vain I think, since we called Norah "Norah Noo-Noo when she was a baby). Today when Ava addressed Keira by that, Keira got the pouty lower lip and started to cry. She knows she doesn't like it, LOL!
