Petey updates.....

Petey lost his tooth last Monday.

Petey made a apple T shirt at school and they made applesauce at school too!

Then on Monday, Petey had a field trip to Brumbaugh Fruit Farm.
He had a lot of fun, he got a pumpkin and an apple. :)

Friday's Fall Recipes....

I am starting something new!
Since Fall is my favorite season.....I thought I would share some fall recipes every Friday...
till probably Christmas.

The first recipe is Pumpkin Cupcakes!
I wanted to get them made beforehand so I can include pictures, but maybe next week.

Pumpkin Cupcakes

1 (18 ounce) package spice cake mic
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
3 eggs
1/4 cup of oil

With mixer, blend cake mix, pumpkin, eggs, oil and 1/3 cup of water.
Beat for two minutes. Pour batter into 24 paper-lined muffin cups. Fill 3/4 full.
Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes.
Spread with icing.

Family pictures.....

We can never take a picture where everyone is looking at the camera!

Here Ollie is looking down.

Here Van is covering his face.

Here Tatum is looking away and Petey is looking at her.

Here, Petey is the only one looking at the camera.

Farm and Science Review '09

Tatum ready to go. The pig tails didn't even make it through the car ride .

Here are the pictures from the farm review this year.
We like to go because the kids like tractors and farm stuff.
We always have fun.

here is the post from the review in '07.
two things to look at......how much Tatum has grown and how curly Ollie's hair used to be.

we didn't go in '08.

Van brought this poem (song) home tonight to read & I though I would share.
This is what we sang before bed tonight!

(sung to B-i-n-g-o)

I know a fruit that grows on trees.
An apple is it's name, oh!

An apple is its name, Oh!

In summer and in early fall
It's time to pick an apple!


It may be sweet or it may be tart.
It's red, or green , or yellow!


A McIntosh or Granny Smith,
A Winesap or Delicious!


Make applesauce or apple juice
Or apple pie with apples!


Farm and Science Review
pictures to come!
the internet is really slow tonight and I am having a hard time editing them.

here is a picture to tease you with :)
