Grace Jumps a Thousand Times

We are enjoying this bit of nice fall weather we are having!

Both girls love to be outside.  Today Grace had a ball hanging out in the front yard while Jason sealed the front porch.

The chairs sitting in the lawn became fun places from which to jump!

One, two...

Three!  (or most likely, threefourfivesixsevenEIGHT!)

I couldn't love this girl more if I tried!

Clara Helps

Clara loves that she can walk!

She loves to help.  She likes to take dishes out of the dishwasher and put the silverware away.  She often brings me things and says "thank you!"

Pumpkins and Garage Doors

It has been a while, so sorry folks!

I tried to do a fall photo shoot and it only turned out so so.  Clara wouldn't look at the camera, and Grace wouldn't stop twirling her hair.  But they sure look cute in the outfits handmade by my talented friend Kathleen!

Grace hasn't mastered the art of smiling for a camera.  At least you know when her smile is genuine!

Grace loves this pumpkin that she received at preschool.  Here she is burying it so that it will "grow and we can turn it into a giant smoothie!"  You'll like that, Dad!

A couple weeks back, Jason decided he was going to paint the garage door.  A short time into scraping, he dislodged a huge rotten chunk and abandoned that idea.  Jason installed this new garage door in under a day.  He is so handy!  Grace loves the new garage door and loves to point it out to any visitors, neighbors passing by or mail people.

The old door has not found its final resting place yet.  Things have just been far too busy with the work season in full swing.  (I think that is part of a weight bench on top of the heap.)

Clara is walking up a storm now!  She loves to push things like this tea cart, but she is comfortable toddling around sans walker too.  Some of her new words include Pumpkin and Bandaid.
