Wow...Has it really been since June????

First off, just letting everyone know we are alive. Just have been really busy!

Here are some pictures from our annual Burt's Pumpkin Patch Trip.
We took a hayride this year. First time. Turner was scared at first. (See hands in her mouth - that is a sign of her being scared or nervous)

As you can tell, now she is having fun and smiling. Just scared when we first got on, but once the tracker started moving, she was having a blast. And by the end of the ride, she was putting hay on her daddy's lap.
This looks says it all. Look at all the PUMPKINS!!!!

Finding the perfect Turner size pumpkin and she did!
Then an even better one! (Mom found her that one!)
Me and my little pumpkin.
Trying to pick up the pumpkins!

Our little stinker! Such a ham sometimes! (Then other times it is like pulling teeth to get her to smile!)

My two stinkers! Like father like daughter! Love these guys!

Turner and Alex (my friend Alicia's son) looking at the big pumpkins. This is our third trip to Burt's and the third time with the Valenzano's. Definitely a yearly tradition!

Then it was off to Uncle Shuck's Corn Maze!

So doesn't she look like she is five in this picture! Just ready to walk into the maze! She is just growing up too quickly!

Double Trouble!

But so cute holding hands!

Helping punching the maze when we found one of the checkpoints.

My little stinker again!

We had a blast at the pumpkin patch and the corn maze. Such a great fall tradition! Will do it again next year!!!!!

Happy Fall!

Father's Day

Father's Day 2009!

All Aaron wanted to do on Father's Day was take Turner to the zoo!
It was so special watching her face react when she saw the animals and then his face react to her face. Such a special bond that these two share!
Here are some pictures from the day. So much fun!

Still here...Still alive!

Yes, we are still alive and doing well. Just really busy and haven't had time to update the blog. I will just as soon as I can. Hopefully I will have some updated pictures up by the end of the week.

Turner is doing well. Keeping us on our toes. As she has an alter ego named Princess Sassy Pants. She is definitely a two year old. Still as cute as can be but there are times where we think, where did our cute angelic child go??

Hope everyone is doing well. I promise new pictures soon.

Easter Weekend

We had a great Easter Weekend!
Starting with Turner's Birthday party on Saturday full of Easter activities.
Then it was onto church Easter Sunday.
Here is Papa and Turner flowering the Cross on Easter Sunday. A tradition at our church. I can remember doing this every Easter growing up. Extra special now that Turner gets to do it at the same church that I grew up in.

Family pictures outside in the courtyard at our church. Beautiful flowers make great pictures!

Mommy and her special Easter present (since she was born Easter Saturday 2007)

Someone LOVES her Grandma and Papa!
Being a very good girl during the church service.
After church, we came home and had lunch outside at Turner's new table that G&P gave her for her birthday.

Since it was such a nice day out, we played for a little while before nap time (for all of us!)
I just love the static look in this picture!

She loves her slide!

Then it was off to G&P's for Easter dinner, with MORE outdoor playtime! She loves Papa's play house in the backyard.

Papa and Grandma found a Mickey Clubhouse table and chairs set for the house!
Turner was so excited to see Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy on the table!

We had a great Easter weekend! Hope everyone did too!
(Sorry I am just now posting these!)

Turner's Birthday Party

Look at the happy girl on the day of her birthday party!

Look at the beautiful cake and cupcakes that my mom made for the party.
Can you see a theme yet?

And didn't get a drop of dye anywhere. Under close supervision!
