I'm Still Here!

Little, Peanut and Dada in our new home. Yes Little's pants are unbuttoned, he's been taking off his pants lately.

Yes I promise I am still here, I have not abandoned this little blog!!  We've got a lot going on right now and I want to settle before I start blogging regularly again.
Although I do have a few updates for you:
We have moved into our new home and love it.  We are still moving things around and unpacking but Ill have a few photos when we are finished!
Tia Linda and Squishy moved into a much much smaller place and couldnt bring Peanut with them, so we got to bring him home with us!! We now have more than enough room and were overjoyed when Tia Linda asked us to take care of Peanut!!  I am happy to report that Little has gotten over his small fear of dogs and love's to play with Peanut.  We are all very happy to have Peanut join our little family, especially Dada- he's always wanted a dog!
I still have pictures to share here; New Hampshire, our Halloween, a pumpkin patch visit and many more.  I promise I will return regularly to share our stories and photos soon.  Thanks for being so patient and I look forward to sharing in this little space on a daily basis again!

Yankee Candle!

Very sorry there was no post yesterday, the day just got away from me.  But I have some more photos of our trip to share today, hopefully that makes up for it!  We took a trip to the Yankee Candle Company, what an awesome place!

This cool car was in the car air freshener section of the HUGE candle room.  Im talking rows upon rows of candles! Every scent you could possibly think of including pine trees and harvest.. which I happened to like.  There was even a place where you can make your own candle; pick out the scents, fill up a jar and have them melted into a candle.  Little made one as a souvenir for Gramma, she loved it! 

Santas workshop was a huge room full of wall to wall toys, was pretty much every kids dream!!  We wrote a letter to Santa from Little (written by Mama), in the letter Little asked Santa for a ball for Christmas.  

We stumbled upon these shelves of Little's favorite animal toys and it took awhile but he finally settled on a Dada, Mama and baby deer.  Im sure it was hard for him though because it was like tiny animal heaven!  Hmmm that sounded weird..

Hopefully this test run with "Santa" will help when we take him to see Santa in December.  His picture last year was terrible (ly funny) and I promise i will share it here! Oh and that hair is crazy, we love it!

The Christmas section was AWESOME!  There was snow, a little Christmas town and a toy train that ran above us around one of the rooms.  There was a room of Christmas trees, a room of ornaments, a room for the Christmas town and smaller rooms of much much more.  Definitely put me in the holiday spirit.

Of course I had to show the Halloween town that was set up, I especially love the pumpkins.  

Outside there was music, food and balloon animals waiting for us.  Little loved the flowers and the commotion.  We didn't get as many pictures as we would have liked at Yankee Candle, there was so much to see. But that happens when you're trying to wrangle a crazy toddler while oohing and aaahing.  But we all really enjoyed our trip to Yankee Candle and would love to go back one day.  I have more photos that I will be sharing throughout next week, Ill try and give you guys a break from our New Hampshire fun!  That last photo is hilarious, Im not sure what he was doing exactly but Im gonna call it a strut!

Cedar Circle Pumpkin Festival

Cousin Lily and Kobie
Uncle Jeff and Aunt Lisa

Cousin Daniel and Aunt Lisa

Little was very excited to ride the big green choo choo, we rode the train to the Cedar Circle Pumpkin Festival!  It was a very nice ride with the family through the trees and across the big agua.  While at the farm we were able to eat some organic food, including a pizza that I thought was pretty good but Dada hated, watch a band play and pick out a pumpkin.  Little wasn't in the best mood at first but he came around as soon as we were in the pumpkin patch.  The pumpkin palace (straw hut) was Little's favorite part of the pumpkins, for some reason he thought all the baby pumpkins lived there.  We rode the hay ride from the patch back to the festival and Little touched one of the horses!  It was the perfect weather to spend time outside with family, food and music.  Little and Dada finished the trip off with a giant cookie and I think they were both pretty happy about it.  We had an amazing time!!
