Punkin Head!

Most days, when we drive up to the house, Natalie sees this pumpkin stuck in our front yard and yells "PUNKIN HEAD!" Makes me laugh.

We went out to the pumpkin patch the other day.

Here's Natie with Daddy.

And with me.

Here's a few of her giving me a good squeeze...she likes to call it "tight".

Pumpkins are heavy.

Going down the big green slide.

Measuring up to the scarecrow. She must have been standing on the downhill because she's taller than 3'.

Look how pretty the tree in front of our house is. It seems to glow orange from the inside out. Love it.

Happy Day

She turned the Happy Birthday song into THIS and she likes to sing it often. She sings it to different people, but this version is my favorite.

This is Pablo, but Natalie calls him "O". He's her most favorite baby.

Go Ducks!

The other night was the Oregon - UCLA game so we geared Natie up in a new shirt and pom-pom bracelets. Watch THIS VIDEO. The last few seconds is funny....Justin swears she says "I ain't lyin'. Go Ducks!"

Getting excited...

Fascinated by the pom-poms...

Silly face...

Over the past couple months, she has taken a crazy interest in drawing and specifically, drawing faces. Here are a couple examples. Pretty good for a barely 2 year old, right?

Hawaii Trip

Since my husband is the coolest, he let Natalie and I take a last-minute trip to Hawaii to see Brad and Michelle! My mom was headed over for a couple weeks so we invited ourselves along. Its always great to see B & M and get a little sun and sand!

Here's Natie at the Queen's Shops in her pretty twirly skirt.

We were there to see the Hula show.

Here's Uncle Brad and Natie checking out the fountain.

And Natie and Auntie Chelle checking out the koi pond.

Natie was in the bedroom, playing quietly and we found her like this.

Here's Natalie with Nana, swimming in the pool. She liked the "poo". HERE and HERE are a couple videos.

Auntie and Uncle got Natie a pair of Hello Kitty boots. They're a little big, but she liked to stomp around in them. Here's a VIDEO taken the morning after she got them.

Chillin' in the boots.

I said "Show me your boots" and this is what she did.

We went into Kona one afternoon and had lunch at this Mexican place that overlooks the ocean. Here's Mom and Michelle.

And Me and Natie. She liked the chips and salsa.

Here we are back at the Queen's Shops. Natalie with Auntie.

Whenever we go here, she likes to run around like a crazy person. Here's a VIDEO too.

She stopped to check out the statues.

And of course, she found Thomas.

We made several visits to the beach. Here's Natie at Mauna Kea.

Washing the sand off her feet and her Little People.

And we swam in the ocean! Natie wasn't afraid this time!

On the last night, we went to Hapuna Beach for a picnic dinner and a sunset. Here's Brad and Michelle eating.

Michelle, Brad, Mom, and Natie

And Me and Natalie at sunset.


About a month ago, we had a picnic lunch at Wilsonville Park and checked out the river. It was a beautiful sunny day and was already feeling like Fall!

There are a couple pictures below and HERE and HERE are a couple videos too.
