Cat-er-zilla and Great Day Strawberry Picking at Hunsaker Farms!

Okay, my computer has got a virus or something and it won't turn on so I can't rearrange my pictures very easily with my phone. Please forgive the mish mosh! Today we went to Hunsader farms to pick strawberries and bought a few other items as well. They had a complimentary petting zoo and playground and it was a really fun day spent with some friends of ours.

And I still have to do some research to find out what kind of Caterpillar this is that I found in the puppy pen this morning. I need to figure out what it eats so we can watch him grow into whatever it grows into!

And lastly, before you go, I invite you to check out this little video of Olivia communicating with a small flock of sandhill cranes. This was a great day!

Doll Hair and an Ice Cream Ball

Just a couple quick fun things from recently: I found one of those ice cream making balls at the local Goodwill and the kids had a blast rolling it around for quite awhile with the promise of ice cream afterwards. It was pretty noisy, but fun nonetheless! 

I got tired of Olivia getting frustrated while trying to "do" her dolls hair, which was also from Goodwill and really ratted up so, after some YouTube videos, I worked on the doll for an afternoon and was pretty pleased with the results!

Carly's 6th Birthday & Halloween

For Carly's 6th birthday, she first got to pick a toy from the store that she'd be eyeing for quite awhile...

then we went to Sky Zone in Fort Myers, FL!

The girls took a spin in the hurricane machine.

We finished the day at home with cake and a few presents. She was over the moon about getting a tablet to replace the one she broke a few months before. :D Look at that face! She also got a new baby doll and some new dresses (which she adores because she's my girlie girl <3 )

A week later was Halloween. Carly was a "Neon Skeleton," Korbin was the transformer "Bumblebee," and Olivia was a "fairy."

Several days later, the kids found the face paint that we forgot to use. The trio disappeared to the bathroom for awhile and returned looking like this:

All About Puppies!!

Puppies, puppies, puppies!! Our 2015 year has ended with us swimming in puppies! First, we got my new German Shorthair Pointer Herschel from a family in northern Florida. He is an incredibly smart and energetic pup and he's quickly becoming my spoiled little baby boy.

And then on October 24 (also Carly's birthday!) our girl Sophie had a litter of ELEVEN puppies! Talk about an adorableness overload!!
Most of them will be going to their new homes on December 19th.
