It's Fall! Time for the Corn Maze!

The sweetest babies ever, I tell you! Here are my precious kids, having a great time at the Corn Maze. The corn maze is one of my favorite things to do once the weather starts to cool down. It's lots of fun and the kids have a great time! 
 As we entered the location they had some cute decorations to photograph with. I'm always up for a "How Tall this Fall" sign!

 Ethan, Mike and Ava took the giant slide into the area. Reagan and I decided to walk underneath. 

 One of the newer things they added this year was a GIANT bounce pillow. Of course Ava didn't wear socks, so she and Ethan traded and took turns. We could hardly get him off. Both kids loved it!

 They had this giant tractor made out of hay there. A great photo opp!

 We decided to do the kiddie sized corn maze which took about 30-45 minutes to get through. They have different stations with colors. Each time you find one, you color a finger and once all 5 fingers are colored AND you find your way back out, you can read a horoscope that goes along with your pattern. 

My cute family! When I first saw this picture I though, Whoa! That's a lot of people! Ha Ha!

Pumpkin Patchin'

This is my favorite time of year! I love visiting the pumpkin patches, the fall festivals, the corn maze and decorating for the seasons. Once the weather changes it'll even be better! I can't wait to do some fall cooking and baking!

Today we visited the best pumpkin patch Orlando has to offer. It is super cute and lots of fun for the kids. They each picked out pumpkins and also our family pumpkins, Mr. and Mrs. Nice names, huh? They chose those, too.

 Ethan and Ava watched as they did a story time and song.

 The nice workers talked me into getting in a picture with the kids. I love their expressions!

 How many times did I say, "Look here. Look at Mommy!"? Hmm...didn't seem to work.

 Reagan got herself a pumpkin too! She really enjoyed her first pumpkin patch experience!

 Ok, I promise I told them to switch places.

Introducing Reagan Marie

Just before delivery.
Well, it's been almost a month since our latest addition to the family, but she's FINALLY here! I'm am so thrilled to introduce you to our precious baby girl, Reagan Marie. She is so wonderful and we are blessed beyond words at what a good baby she is. Right from the start she was a good nurser and a good sleeper. Maybe because we've already experienced loss of sleep from the other two, but this time around seems SO much easier! Am I imagining that? Don't get me wrong, I still would love to get those few extra hours of sleep in, but it doesn't seem to bother me as much now.

Once my Mom left (and thank you so much for staying with us!), I was quite nervous about how to handle 3 kids on my own. You know, when hubs wasn't there to help out. But actually, it wasn't bad! Reagan is very good with going-with-the-flow. And Ava and Ethan are a wonderful big sister and brother! They both just adore their new little sister!

Ok, ok! Enough already! Here are some pictures of our sweet baby girl! Enjoy!
