Some may argue that Loops were designed to help medical personnel see in better detail the the things in which they are performing procedures on. As you can see they were clearly made for cutting your preschoolers fingernails. I feel this could be a new marketing strategy for them. In fact when I came downstairs with a mound of laundry I saw this laughed and then immediately had an entire Saturday Morning Infomercial come to mind. It went a little something like this; Tired of accidentally cutting your infants skin while cutting her fingernails? Or listening to your toddler whine about their fingers hurting because you have once again cut those minuscule fingernails too short? Those days could now be over simply call 1-800-LOO-PS4U and with 4 easy payments of $19.95 (plus shipping and handling) you can own a pair of Loops just like the ones you see Doctors wear on T.V. if you have seen a doctor wear them during your surgical procedures you should call Binder and Binder now to file your injury claim!

Bryn is such a good baby. She plays well by herself, isn't needed or fussy. She is 5 months old now and is so fun. Here are some of her favorite things to do. Play in her exersaucer. Have her sister hold her. She is completely in love with Kenna. They do a lot of snuggling on the couch. Kenna is soft and gentle with her. If Bryn starts to fuss she will go running to her saying "It's okay Bryn I am here". I love it. She is a rice cereal fan. And is so cute sitting up at her highchair. It is a good thing she make noise every once in a while or I would forget about her!

I can't believe our little Kenna is 3 years old already! Time goes by so fast! She has been so excited all month for her birthday. Friday night we took her out for a birthday dinner, she chose pizza. We tried a place called Bertucci's Brick Oven Pizzeria. It was the best pizza we have ever had! Because it was her birthday they gave her free ice cream and put a candle in it, we sang to her and let her blow the candle out. It made her day. She wanted Brad to take her shopping for a "beautiful dress" so her and Brad went to Target and she chose a dress with black velvet top with pink (of course) satin with a chiffon overlay for the bottom. Brad tried and tried to get her to like a black and gold one that had a matching one for Bryn but it was not happening. She told us she wouldn't wear it, only the pink one. So the pink one she got.

And here is why. We went to bed on Wednesday with all of the leave still on our trees. When we awoke Thursday morning this is what we found, all thanks to a little gust of wind!! I should have followed my gut and taken a picture of the trees on Wednesday when I thought about it. Oh well just imagine what they all looked like on the trees.

Kenna is in love with art projects. If it is a product that can be cut, colored, painted, glued, or stuck on to something she loves it. She asks every day if she can do a project. My house would be tons cleaner if cutting gluing etc wasn't such a joy and paper wasn't everywhere. Oh well at least she isn't watching t.v. all day. So here is something that we did yesterday. This is good and cheep for all of you who are on student loan and/or repaying insane amounts of student loan debt budgets. We went for a walk and gather leaves tons and tons, every color that we could find. This was fun for me because it burned up some of that energy that she has which meant that when we got home she would take a nice nap! After her nice nap we took a paper plate and cut the center out of it. I was impressed with her cutting skills. Last time I let her cut anything she got her clothes. This is something that she remembered as well she said to me when she was done cutting; (read the following with all joy and excitement that a 2 yr old posses) "Mom I didn't cut my dress this time! I am so good!" I agreed Then we took the leaves and glued them to the paper plate to make a wreath. I let her run the hot glue gun with much assistance. I drove the point home that it was hot and would give her a big fat owie if she didn't listen while using it. Here is the finished product. She had a blast and it is being proudly displayed on our front door.Bryn played with her toys while Kenna and I did the cutting and gluing. However, this is not where she was originally put. I put her on the other side of the boppy on the blanket. I had the Boppy on the floor just to keep her from rolling all over the place apparently it didn't work.

Yesterday evening Kenna was in the living room spreading out her blankets on the floor and setting up a few pillows. She does this a lot and refers to the spread out blankets as her "space". She asked if Bryn could lay down on her space with her. Note in picture that bear has a pillow as well as her and Bryn, so cute! She had brought down a ton of books in the Halloween bag (thanks Carolyn she has had fun with that) and proceeded to "read" her sister books. I was quite impressed at how well she has some of those stories memorized. When she got out the Little Engine that Could, she looked at Bryn and said, "this is mommy's favorite because her Gamma Norby read it to her when she was little." You remember her Papa Norby right Bryn, we went to his house after the plane? Cute little Bryn just stared at her with her big blue eyes. Quite the little mommy.

We had a ton of fun this Halloween. Kenna had a Halloween Party with her friends they played pin the tail on the cat, a ring toss with a witched hat, bowled for mummies, and a cake walk. They also made a candy corn craft. All the kids came dressed in their costumes and they all had fun.
