God Asked the Feline Spirit
God asked the feline spirit "Are you ready to come home?"

So this is how Maren chooses to get around (second to being carried of course!). I've been trying to get video of her whistling too, because this girl is not a 1 trick pony (*phews!*). Guess I don't need to worry about her burning the knees out of her pants, it will be the tootie! She's pretty proud of herself though, and that is all that matters!
Today was the big field trip to the pumpkin patch on the school bus day. Bless these little kids hearts, they were so excited. Declan couldn't go to sleep last night, he was up until 10:45! I went to take pictures of them getting on the bus. Once they were all sitting I got on the bus to take pictures and you couldn't even see them sitting in the seats, their little heads were below the seat backs!
Here they are lining up to get in. Declan is holding hands with his buddy Ian, and the little dude in the striped shirt behind them is another friend Mateo. Declan and Ian got on the bus together, but were separated once on the bus... I'm guessing they were a danger of getting wild. Hmmmmmm.
Here is the fence down the side of the house. We're going to put pavers down and bring the garbage cans out instead of in our back yard. Aren't we thoughtful, conscientious neighbors?? =)
We've got a shed coming for the side yard, which needs leveled and pavers too. Then who knows what is next. The lights look really nice at night, and it's cool the kids can play out in the driveway after dark, because now they can see!

Maren was pretty interested to meet another of her brethren (I joke that the kids are billy goats - everything goes in their mouths). She thought she saw some resemblance...
The girls with their pumpkins.
Declan and Teagan are going to "Boo" a few neighborhood friends, so we made a few little bags with Halloween goodies in them to put on their front door. Declan *loved* putting them together and is so excited to give them out. I think we'll take a walk this evening and do it. I took a pictures of the bags...
We went to the Dollar Store last night to get things for the Boo bags, and swung by Taco Bell for a good nutritious dinner. Once Maren got ahold of the cup, there was no getting it away from her.
This is what a baby enjoying root beer looks like:
This is said baby after someone finally got the cup back.
Now, I know what many of you are thinking. Your appalled that we are giving the baby soda. Let me be the first to say none of the others got soda this young. Your thinking her teeth are going to rot before she even get them. But it hasn't ruined any of our teeth!
