The Baldwin's with Grandma and Zaldivar's with Abuelo went to Dewberry Farm a few weeks ago. It was a good visit....but bloody hot (really sunny with no breeze) for October. We took a tour of the place, visit to the pumpkin patch/alley, corn maze....had lunch and then pretty much left.
Also the Baldwins dropped by on their way back home.
Daddy (Stephen) and Zachary being silly
It is a long hot walk through the maze and everyone gets tired eventually...
At the end the kids impatient and just keep going....
They had hundreds of pumpkins carved all in one room. Here is just a sample of their work. Pretty cool eh?
Today was a momentous occasion! It was Brinson's first day of school! We both did very well, neither of us cried. Ned and I walked her into the classroom and she made a bee line for the radio/cd player. Mrs. Haynes quickly led her to a table to put "Bugs in a jar". Ned and I went to the front to hand in paperwork, and on our way out we peeked into the room. She was coloring and having a great time. We even ran into Shauna her ISR teacher! She was dropping her two little ones off.
The only issue was when they tried to change her diaper, she freaked out about the latex gloves. Not sure what that's all about, I'm sure it has to do with doc offices, labs etc.
When I went to pick her up, she was ready to go but said she had fun. She says she wants to go back which is a good thing. She brought home her turkey she colored along with a paper turkey feather we have to decorate together.
I think this will be really good for her.
When we got home she told me she wanted to go ni ni. She slept from 130pm-515pm! And, I had to get her up!
Straight to the music

At the end of class, Mrs. Lesmeister was calling her. They saw me thru the window.
The friday before Halloween we took Brinson out to Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital for their Halloween carnival. Brinson got to meet some of Nana's co- workers and to see some really neat costumes. Ned has some more pictures on his camera so we should be posting more later.

She's such a girlie girl. When given a choice for her cheek or hand for a painting, she chose hand...lol
Ned and I decided to carve pumpkins for Brinson this year. As I'm posting this the pumpkins are long gone.....they molded pretty quickly. She wasn't very interested in the process, she was happy to ride her plasmacar around the kitchen.

Hey I had good intentions.....
but got very frustrated and gave up on Dora.
Ned had more patience...and better carving equipment :P
