Happy Birthday Kirsten & Happy Halloween!

Today was a busy day. Kirsten took a few great birthday pictures this morning:

Then off to school we went. Mommy at Daddy met Kirsten at school for a Halloween/Birthday party at 3 pm. Mommy made strawberry cupcakes with chocolate frosting.

After the party she stayed dressed up and we met some friends at the mall for some trick or treating and dinner.

After the mall we headed to a neighbor a few miles from home for some tradional trick or treating. We were all exhausted so no pics were taken :)

Kirsten's birthday party was Saturday. The kids had a blast as did she. She loved having all the kids to play with at her house. On Sunday night we watched some of the video Daddy took and Kirsten started crying for no apparent reason. Only thing we could figure is she was sad everyone left and wanted them to come back.

Tonight we finally made it to the pumpkin patch only to fine the few that were left were rotten. We did get a cute family picture and she had fun running around.

We found out on Saturday that The Wiggles will be doing a concert in Jacksonville in a few weeks. We are hoping to get tickets so that we can take Kirsten.
There are lots more pictures in our online album.

We finally made it to the Pumpkin Patch today. There were only a few rotten ones left (notice the rotten one in the picture). Things are so busy this this of the year. Next year we will have to plan to go early in the month. We did get a great family picture and Kirsten had a blast being pulled in the wagon.

My little pooping Queen finally attended a full day of school today. She was sent home on Monday of last week, then Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday we kept her out. We restricted her diet (BRAT: Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Toast) and didn't allow milk at all. None of which made her poopy change in consistency. She returned on Friday and she was sent home again. We took her into the Dr. on Friday with only one symptoms...huge loose like poopy. They did cultures which so far have come back negative. She is 34 lbs now and we just went up to size 6 diapers.

We attended my 10 yr high school reunion last weekend. There was a Tailgate party on Friday, a family picnic on Saturday and a dinner and dance on Saturday night. We arrived as the scheduled place for the dinner and dance and were notified it had been cancelled a few days before. I never received notification that it was changed another place so we ended up just coming back how. The reunion has a my space page so out of curiosity I check it to see if anything was posted and it was. On October 5th there was a post. I e-mail one of the organizers and her response was "I thought everyone knew". She forwarded me an e-mail reminder that was sent. There were only 10 names (each of the organizers) in the mailed to box. None of the people I was close to in high school attended anyways so it was basically a waste of money (for me it was $60 for a lunch of subs and another of hamburgers and hot dogs) and a weekend.

Kirsten is beginning to show us just how smart she really is and we are amazed everyday. She learns things so fast. With her growing vocab and ability to communicate her needs and wants we are doing good at avoiding major tantrums. Her new addiction is BARNEY, thanks to Papa and Meme G :) She is totally into babies of any sort. I wanna teach her to breast feed them instead of giving them a bottle but daddy didn't like that idea...LOL

Tentative plans for this weekend is a trip to Jacksonville for Hailey's (Cousin) B-day party on Sunday.
We are also getting ready to tackle a whole new method of cooking. I got the idea from an article in a local paper. Here's the detail: Wish us luck!
