We've been busy.

It's been a few days since I've blogged, I apologize but I've been enjoying this beautiful fall weather with my boyfriend and family. Here's a picture of the beautiful fall leaves from a drive around my town this weekend. 

Wowzers! October is almost over and we have been busy doing all sorts of things fall and Halloween related. We've visited the pumpkin patch, made jack o lanterns, cooked pumpkin seeds and danced to monster mash to name a few things. Here's some pictures of what we have been up to.  Sorry the post is long.

We made these super cute/silly spiders! The kids just loved them and now they are hanging from our ceiling. We charted things spiders can do and how they look, we acted like spiders and crawled around the room. We loved talking about spiders!
 We talked about skeletons last week and made these cute Mac & Cheese skeletons as the kids called them :) They had a blast completing this activity!

 Halloween just isn't Halloween with out Candy Corn! We used these special crayons called silky sticks 
they are similar to pastels and the kids were all about them :) I got the pattern 
from this wonderful website Mrs. Nelson's class

We made these super cute lanterns! I just LOVE how
the each kids is different. Love the one with 5 eyes! So now you have it
we have been SO busy and this isn't all of the things we have been up
to! Happy hump day everyone :)

It's Ok!

This is my first time linking up for "It's Ok" Thursdays & I'm kind of loving this whole idea so here goes nothing. :)

It's Ok that....

as soon as i got off work today, i kicked off my shoes put on some sweats and jumped right in to bed. 

I have an obsession with everything pumpkin right now. Pumpkin candles, pumpkin creamer you get the drift..

I kinda sorta already want to listen to Christmas music. :)

I ate dinner at 8:30 tonight.

I'm watching Hocus Pocus right now and reciting the lines word for word

I didn't complete anything I brought home to work on tonight!  

I spend way too many hours on Pinterest 

I'm already hoping for a snow day! I just need to sleep in

I just love love love love my boyfriend!  Boy is he good to me!!

Pumpkin Galore

Whew! I'm sleepy, it's not even 8 yet!!!!! We have been talking about pumpkins this week, we started the week off by going to the Pumpkin Patch!!! The weather was great and the kids and parents had a great time, we really lucked out with the weather as it's been pretty rainy around here recently. I'm going to keep this pretty sweet and simple and share with you a few things we've done so far. Happy almost hump day y'all!

we loved the "corn crib" at the pumpkin patch!!

 We cleaned out our pumpkin, we guessed how many seeds were inside. We will count how many there are tomorrow!
 Some of us helped by using a spoon others got down to business and used their hands!
We talked about the parts of a pumpkin and made a little diagram like this to hang on our walls. 
Some of my sweeties even copied what I wrote on mine :) love love when they take the next step
We love using our fingers to put on the glue! so much 
easier than glue brushes!
