Pumpkin Patch

Jim had Monday off and since it was a nice day out, we decided to go to Konow's Corn Maze. Samantha had so much fun. She loved all of the pumpkins and was picking up all of them. It was nice because not a lot of people were there because it was a weekday and that all the kids were in school. So Samantha was able to have a lot of fun and I didn't have to worry about her getting hurt. Once we were there, there was a huge jumpee thing that Samantha and Jim went on, then she climbed through the haystack playground and went through the tunnels, then her and Jim went on a tractor ride in a cow ride and then we went on a hay ride. She LOVED it! After the hay ride we went a big corn pit and then to the petting farm! There were a bunch of little piglets and Samantha was so giddy with them!
Once we got home we carved the pumpkins. Samantha had so much fun looking at all of the gross stuff inside. She was so happy to see the face cut out on her pumpkin. It was so nice to have a family day...just the 3 of us :)

My sister Julie got married this weekend!!! Despite the rain in the morning, her wedding was absolutely beautiful! She looked amazing! All 3 of us were in the wedding and we all had so much fun! Samantha did great as the flower girl, even though Jim had to walk down with her she threw her leaves and everyone loved it! She did so good and slept on the way to the reception hall and then partied with us all night long! We changed her into some cute halloween pj at the end of the night! We love you Julie and Matt!!!

Happy 2nd Birthday to our sweet little princess

Happy Birthday to our sweet little girl! You are an amazing little girl and I can't believe how fast 2 years has gone. She had such a great birthday! It was small and inimate and she had so much fun! Uncle Jeff brought home a blow up Jump thingy and Samantha and Peter jumped for hours in there! This year we had a Dora the Explorer themed party...everything was Dora! She loved opening up presents and she opened them up so delicately too. She loved when we all sang happy birthday to her...she even sang along. It took her 3 times to blow out her candle and when she did she was so excited!

Some fun facts

She is a picky eater
will eat any type of fruit

She loves her Oma, Papa, Mimi and Bob (grandpa)
loves to talk to Jim on the phone when he isn't around

She has been putting sentences together now for a while. She doesn't use sign language too much anymore since she can now speak what she wants.
Jim and I have truely been blessed with such a great baby girl. She just goes along with everything we are doing without any crying or fussing. We couldn't of asked for a better baby during medical school. I'm sure I'm missing a lot of things during this past year, but I have pictures upon pictures to remember some of the other special moments with her.
