Boo Zoo

Sorry for the delay in the commentary..(Not that anyone was anxiously awaiting). Last weekend with went with the Dax's to Boo Zoo at the New Zoo. It was really fun. Madisyn wore her little pumpkin costume for I guess you could say second time. The first time was when she tried it on at Target and insisted on wearing until checkout. Anyway, the zoo was great, candy stations for all the kids, tons of kids in cute costumes, and the majority of the animals were actually out. Must have been the cooler temperatures as compared to when we've gone in the summer.

My little pumpkin.

Lola, the cutest ladybug I've seen.

"No more tootsie rolls....what"

Two cute pumpkins

I think the Reindeer was a little upset. I guess probably because this wasn't his holiday.

The fox was dressed in his bear costume.

Squirmy little bugs

"You look weird. No, You look weird. No you do. No you do."

The cutest new additions to the zoo. Absolutely adorable.

This may have been the scariest thing at the zoo that day.

Punkin' Patchin' and HOF 2008

This past weekend we ventured to Hortonville to go to the pumpkin patch and pick out some pumpkins. It was huge. I was thinking we were in for a little farm. When we got there, there were a ton of cars. They had all kinds of things. hay rides, bunnies, pumpkins, gourds, corn maze, haybail critters, haybail slides and a bunch more. It was crazy.

So many pumpkins, how can one person decide.

Here's the actual pumpkin patch that we took a hayride out to.

One of the haybail pumpkins we passed on the way out.

"I found one....wait...this thing is heavy!"

"Here's one more my size!"

"Dir-tee" (Such a girly girl!)

Nice pumpkin pose Court...real nice!

On Saturday night we went to Steven's Point where Amie's basketball team was being inducted into the UWSP hall of fame. It was a great night. Madisyn and Daddy were so proud of Mom.

The newly enducted Hall of Famers

Madisyn thought it was fun game to stick all the name tags on Aunt Cathy!

Not so fun anymore. "Uh oh."

It was a bit of a long night....thanks to Gramps for giving Madisyn a place to snuggle up.

"It was long, exhausting but fun weekend.....just ask my parents!"

Odds n' Ends

It's been a little bit since I updated this blog thingy. Here's a little insight into what Madisyn's been up to as of late.

It was Mommy's birthday a couple of weeks ago. Don't really know what the deal is with Madisyn's 'smile.' Must have something to do with knowing that it's mom's last birthday celebration in the 20's.

Bon Voyage!
We had a little going away party for Aunt Sarah as she moves out to Cincy! Good Luck and we'll miss ya. Keep in touch!

New Diggs

Well not really new....just updated I guess. It was about a month ago we decided to move Madisyn up from her crib to her 'big girl bed.' So far so good. We did have one little incident, but it was nothing a little help from Marc and I couldn't fix with a little ingenuity at work. (We had to make a rail for the bottom of the bed. I think it turned out even better than the one we bought)

What's This?

A. An 18 volt battery
B. Useless (becasue Dad didn't put it back in the charger
C. A Boat
D. All of the above

If you answered D. You're correct. I'm constantly amazed at how smart these little kids are. They honestly just crack me up with how creative they can be. Some of you may have read about Noah's little hair dryer story. If's absolutely hilarious. It wasn't nearly as funny, but we had a similar little expierience the other night. I was in our room putting up a new ceiling fan and had the recharable flashlight up there, along with the battery that I had died because I didn't put it in the charger. When I finished up and turned the power back on, Mom and Madisyn came up to inspect my work. It was then Madisyn made us laugh as we saw her over on the floor with the battery, sliding it across the floor, saying "BOAT" "BOAT." It was pretty funny...and you know does look awfully similar. Funny stuff.

In another funny little story. The other day Madisyn was rummaging thru my bedside table as she does pretty regularly does. I looked over and saw she pulled out my ipod headphones. The next part is what really amazed me....she was actually trying to put the earbuds into her ears. I guess I'll have to find out what she wants on her playlist.
