The other day we attended an event where they have a little scavenger hunt for the kids.  The kids have to find all the witches throughout this whole village and fill out a paper along the way and at the end they turn it into the bakery and get a cookie. We all had fun!!

Breast cancer awareness witch

Stella and her cousin Garrett, I have no idea how he even reached that high. 

Me and my niece Chloe, she's the only one that seems to fit perfectly.

Pumpkin patch part 2

Love these white pumpkins and the little pumpkin on the tail gate.

They had a few small animals, including a kangaroo, that you could look at and attempt to feed. Poor Stella tried to feed that ear of corn to just about every animal in the zoo and nobody wanted it.

So instead of a sand box they had a corn box. A huge box filled w/ kernels of corn. It was the coolest thing and Stella loved it. She was crawling around and then laid down and a little girl came up to her and started to burry her and she let her, Jorge and I were dying because we were so surprised that she went for it. 

The pumpkin patch

Last weekend we went to the pumpkin patch w/ our friends and had a blast. Stella was so adventurous and wanted to do everything, she is getting so mature ;) first she climbed big bales of hay and went down a ginormous covered slide all by herself.

At the end of the slide and sporting her cute new winter boots.

Family selfie on a tractor ride

She went through a kiddie maze all by herself (w/ a little coaching from the sidelines by Jorge) the best part was that she never got frustrated she was calm and enjoying the experience. 

Stella's last parent & me class

Jorge was able to attend her last class and get in w/ her. He loved it!! Its so fun to see your child progressing, growing and learning. 

We stayed and played after the lesson

Lexi's 1st Birthday

Ok so Jorge and I formed a new rule for ourselves, no cell phones in bed when the other person is there and awake and I always used to blog in bed  so hence my blogging has been a bit sporadic. Right now I'm sitting in the car while it's running in the parking lot at our apt because Stella is asleep and is so over tired and doesn't transfer well. This is the perfect time to blog. These are pictures from Stella's cousin Lexis birthday, she turned one this week.
Loving her strawberry/ chocolate cake

Stella and Garrett (other cousin) Stella really enjoyed the cake too ;)

We had the best weekend. I want to post every picture and tell you every detail but It probably wouldn't all fit. We started a new tradition though on Saturday where we all work in the morning to clean the house. It was AMAZING! It was nice to have help and we were to accomplish a lot. We cranked up our favorite music and had fun working together.
