Pumpkin patch

My very favorite event of the Fall season has to be visiting different pumpkin patches!!! This would be my dream job! I would love to own and run my very own pumpkin patch!

Mollye enjoyed them, too!! Here are some pictures from our trips this season.

 Last year I had to help her climb up this exact bounce house! Crazy how big they get in a year!

 This is for you, Nanny T! She loved standing on that spider b/c she knew you would be scared!!!

Great memories!! Now if only I could open my own... ha.

3 months...

Wow, how did I let 3 months go by and post nothing!  Sorry, my life is just too busy these days! Well that and for two of those months, I could not be on the computer without getting sick- different topic though.

Tonight's post will be short and sweet.  Here are two of my favorite pictures from this Fall. 

My little pumpkin (who is getting too big!):

Fun times playing in the corn!

I hope everyone is enjoying Fall as much as we are! Pumpkin patches, crafts, parties, pumpkin carving, Disney on Ice, Trick or Treating, and so many more activities have filled our Fall with fabulous memories! I plan to be back tomorrow with more updates-hopefully it will not be three months...

First Organized Event

Mollye has offically started her first organized event- swim lessons!!! Wow, how did she get old enough to be involved already?

She was more than excited to start swimming.  As soon as I picked her up from daycare, the first thing out of her mouth was- "mom, are we going to my swim lesson today??"  Yes, that is exactly where we are headed for two days a week the entire school year!! I'm hoping we have this swimming thing down by the end of the year.

She did a great job in her class of four.  At first it was just her and two older boys (I felt sorry for them.)  Luckily one of the boys had a 3 year old sister whose mom went ahead and signed her up.  Mollye loved having a friend! I will have to say she sat and listened just like she was suppose to.  The only problem we ever had was occassionally Mollye would just jump in the water to her instructor.  Yes, I have told you the child has no fear of water!!!

Being a proud Mommy I of course had to grab a few shots of her very first swim lesson.  Enjoy!

Mollye's 3rd Birthday

I love how I had decided back in March that we would just have cupcakes and play on her new playground... Why, oh why did I think I would ever let that happen???

By May, Mollye had started talking about her birthday.  She was ready for a big party like she saw in the pictures from her 1st and 2nd birthday parties! I, too, started getting excited about the birthday season.  By the time June arrived, we had a plan- Ariel! Now if you know anything about my child, you know she walks around pretending to have fins and singing every Ariel song known to mankind!

I promise I did try to downplay this party! I promise! I really did! Take note of the small amount of food! However, the look on this little girl's face made it all worth it!!!

 She was SOOO happy!!!

Here is a walk through of Mollye's 3rd birthday!!!

Mollye wanted to make her own cake. That is just what we did! She literally mixed, poured, baked, and placed all the items on the cake.
 Some even ended up on the face! I'm positive this was after she took a couple licks from her fingers!
 Homemade birthday hats!

 Table centerpieces

 Game Time!

First up was the make a fish craft station.  This helped to keep the kids in the front yard long enough to eat...

Dig for Treasure! The kids loved loading up their party favor buckets with all the goodies they could find!
 Every three year old needs a bounce house!
 Complete with a slide!
 Clam Toss- note how smart the sister-n-law was to give Mollye shorts under that super cool Ariel fin!
 Mollye loves to dance so there had to be a "Dancing around on what do you call them?? FEET!" complete with the Little Mermaid soundtrack.

Mr. Crab was in "charge" of all the drinks!
 Food Table!
 We decided to place the plates, napkins, straws, and "dinglehoppers" inside a briefcase such as the one Ariel carries her thingamabobs in.

 Peanut Butter and Jelly"fish"

Note that in July there is ALWAYS a fly in some picture!!! Ugh! Next year, the food is going to be inside!


Of course when I went to take the picture, the breeze would appear!

My favorite part of the entire day was when we sang Happy Birthday! Adam took too long to start it so Mollye started her own song!

Gift Time! Mollye loved everything in her "treasure trove!"

 Cousin Love!
 WOW!!! One very lucky girl!
 Party Favors- Beach Buckets & Towels!

All in all I think it turned out to be a great party!!! Mollye is still talking about it! She was happy, and that in return makes this Mommy very happy! Happy 3rd birthday, Mollye Addison Casey!!!

Here is our 6:18 p.m. picture on her birthday- Mollye is officially 3!!!
