The past few days have been super rainy... even for the Northwest. When the kids seemed to be bored with the normal inside activities we put on our boots and headed outside. We found the perfect puddle in the corner of our back yard and the kids splashed away. When they were wet and cold we headed inside to warm up with some hot chocolate. Today I am thankful for our dry, warm house.

For Halloween Desmond was a fireman. I sewed the jacket which of course was more difficult than I anticipated with the shiny plastic material. Kaylynn was a little fairy with her tutu and wings. I really wanted to give her pig tails but she would have none of it.
We've been enjoying the season and carved our pumpkins. Desmond designed the little one himself. We also got a new oven off craigslist! The guy had it listed under "Antiques" instead of "Appliances" and I stumbled on it by mistake but we got it for a great deal. So nice to have an oven door that opens all the way! Now we can fit the turkey in for Thanksgiving.
I've been into project mode lately. I got a twin bed frame from a friend and have been sanding it down so we can refinish it for Kaylynn. I've seen her almost climb out of her crib once. I also got a wooden toy sink and stove from the same friend and I'm going to refinish it for Kaylynn as well. It should be a lot easier to sand than the spindles on the bed! I just wonder if I can get it finished in time for Christmas. We'll see.
