Taking two toddlers (the younger one even went on a nap strike that day) out past their bed time is not for the faint of heart. My MIL took the three of us to see Veggie Tales Live a few nights ago. And we certainly had our ups and downs. Isla was all over the place. Literally. At one point, she climbed under the chairs and went about 6 seats before I went after her. But I know they loved it. Especially Connor. He has been so proud of his Larry hat and talking about Veggie Tales ever since.

This week:

  • Isla went pee in her little potty!!!! once. You know, she wouldn't want to make something like not sitting in her own waste a habit or anything. 
  • Another week, another pumpkin patch visit. This one even included a hay ride. 
  • One morning I had to wake Connor for preschool. This is the kid who is always up with (or even before) the sun. 
  • My fall mantle decorations seem to be growing by the day. I've already added to it (and my porch) since posting about it
  • I have been on a tea kick lately. It's just so nice to drink in the afternoon. And it reminds me of the good ole days in Scotland. 

Isla turns two tomorrow. I'm still trying to wrap my head around that one. But whether she realizes it's her birthday or not, we are ready to celebrate. 


  1. What kind of tea do you like drinking? I'm a fan of black teas, especially vanilla flavored ones.

    1. My favorite tea is camomile, honey & vanilla. It is delicious. A close second for me is good ole earl grey. Have you ever heard of a "london fog"? I learned of them in Scotland. It is earl grey with vanilla syrup and steamed milk with a little foam. It is delicious.

  2. Yay Pumpkin patch fun!! & I can't believe Miss Isla is 2! I still remember getting a text that night. Happy birthday sweet Isla Grace!!!
