More swimming at the Y today but the water was pretty cold so we didn't stay in very long. Mommy went to the Steeler game so Daddy & I stayed home and napped, finished painting the yellow walls in the baby's room and had a picnic right in the middle of the living room for dinner!! Chinese food- yay!!
The Brook Park Halloween Parade was today and the North Allegheny band was there and lots of fire trucks! I dressed up as Cinderella but my I didn't keep my crown on very long. Daddy pulled me in the wagon most of the parade route but once we got to the end with all the cookies, I hopped right out!
Then we carved pumpkins and mommy made me put my hand in the pumpkin guts - ewwww!! I didn't like it but I do love pumpkin seeds!
Today I saw my first movie at the movie theater! High School Musical 3! Not what you may have expected but all my cousins were going so Aunt Kelly and Aunt MK took me too. I didn't know any of the songs (after all they weren't 'Laurnie' Berkner!) but I had lots of fun eating pretzels and watching the show. Then I slept over my cousin's house and we watched a Franklin movie before bed !
Pumpkin Patch Fun!!
Today we went with the Ryans to Reilly's Farm to go on a hayride and pick out our pumpkins! Then we roasted marshmallows, got our faces painted and went down a really steep slide! I picked out a big and small pumpkin to put in 'my' yard!
Gymnastics was fun today too - I did a somersault all by myself!
Please keep Ally Heintz's family in your prayers. We heard yesterday that Ally passed away suddenly on Monday morning. Ally was a wonderful little girl that underwent a multiple organ transplant in Pittsburgh in July 07' and was here for over a year. We were lucky (through Nin Nin) to get to know Ally, her mom Jill and sister Ashley and we loved having them in Pittsburgh. Check out Ally's site for pictures of Ally & her sister http://allyheintz.aboutmybaby.com/ or my pictures from June when Ally, Colin, and Jack came to visit http://caileighduffy.aboutmybaby.com/photoalbum/169025/2
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAILEIGH!!
Well even though she's not officially 3 until 10:14 p.m., the celebration started on Saturday with her party. Lots of food, friends/family and gifts! Too many gifts -we are very blessed to have such generous friends and family! Caileigh had a great time playing with all her cousins and seeing all her relatives! She was already playing with her Princess boom box, barbies and puzzles!
Yesterday we went swimming at the Y and she jumped in again and again and again and swam to the wall (with the help of a noodle) all by herself! She was very insistent on doing it by herself. Then we made cupcakes for her class and after dinner her dad made a fire and the Rodgers came over for smores! She did get one gift from us yesterday - a cleaning trolley (yes she wanted it!) so she can help do all the house work (she and John were already using it yesterday!).
Tonight we are going to dinner and then more gifts and cake of course!!
More birthday news, we went to Eat & Park last night for dinner and Caileigh got ice cream but wasn't too happy with the man that sang Happy Birthday!! Check out the pictures! More to come of her new rocking chair too!!
Well I've been a busy almost 3 year old lately! More gymnastics on Saturday, planting mums and helping mommy with yard work. Mommy and daddy went away last weekend for their 5th wedding anniversary and I stayed over at Grandma and Grandpa's house and then at Grammy & Pap Pap's house! I didn't want to come home to boring mom & dad!
Just a few more days until my birthday party and I can't wait! In the meantime, I've been doing a really good job wearing underwear to bed every night and staying dry! And my new favorite songs are anything by Laurie ("Lornie") Berkner like "Rocketship Run" or "Baseman in the Basement".
