Hairstyle by Daddy

So, obviously I style Aubrey's hair during the day (how long it lasts is another story!). But, daddy is in charge of bathtime hairdos. :)

Snails for Aubrey

One of Aubrey's favorite art supplies is Playdough. I've made the mistake of creating quite a few animals with the playdough. So she now demands that we make the same ones over and over again. Her favorite animals are snails, spiders and squirrels. If I make one animal, she asks me to make another version of the animal. Like "Ok, mommy, make a daddy snail. Make a mommy snail. Make a grandma snail and an Amber snail" (her little sister's name). She then arranges the animals in a certain order. Usually all in a row. What a funny girl!

Mmmm...Apple Hill

The day before Halloween we made the famous Aten/Cadle Family trip to Apple Hill. We figure this is a tradition we've beeen keeping for 5 years. Boy, do we love Apple Donuts!

It was pretty chilly, so Aubrey stayed nice and bundled in her stroller for most of it. Our little sweet tooth loved her apple donut. Wish we had another box to enjoy as the first one was gone too quickly (I may or may not have had a dream last night that I was back at Apple Hill enjoying another crumb topped apple donut). :)

No trip there is complete without a Pony Ride to top things off. Despite her face, she was so happy to be on that pony. She begs to see ponies and even rides around the house on her stuffed cheetah calling it a pony. Future cowgirl on my hands?

It was another great trip! Thanks right back at ya' Cadles!

I just timed uploading pictures and typing out this blog post. Before new laptop, I was sitting at least an hour while my sad computer tried to process the few pictures. Then it would quit and I'd be back at square one. That's not even including the blog post I would have written that would also goof up and never make it to the publish stage. So I did what any person with zero patience for continued errors on blogger...I let it sit...

Hooray for a new laptop! Here are some pics of Aubrey's Halloween costume. She was a Ladybug and she loooved her "wings." She had so much fun at her Trunk or Treat party given by her Ward Primary.

Ryan and I were invited to our FIRST grownup Halloween party for the following night and enjoyed once again getting a little creative with our costumes. Yes, those are tattoo sleeves on our arms, not makeup. Soooo much easier to remove and I couldn't wait to see my normal arms again after a few hours. You can only look at Dragons and flames for so long.

We made our first trek to Bishops Pumpkin Farm in Wheatland with Gigi (Ryan's mom). Aubrey was determined to get a green pumpkin. No normal orange one for her! It was a lot of fun and we can't wait to go back next year. Amazing pumpkin pie is served there always gets us back to places.

Speaking of eating, you can definitely tell in the pictures that I'm only about 70 days away from meeting Aubrey's little sister. It's going fast. Thank goodness for Zofran and the ability to eat much more than just popcorn, white bread and cereal (Aubrey's pregnancy). Of course, she was worth every sacrifice! We love her.
