Our Little Woofer

Lisi loves dogs. Whenever she sees or hears one she starts woofing. So a few weeks ago we had a little family outing to a pet store so she could see some little puppies. Oh. My. Goodness. She had so much fun watching her little furry friends. As soon as we took her out of the car she heard the dogs and she started woofing. We're not planning on getting a dog anytime soon, but after seeing those cute, sweet, little, snuggly puppies it was sure hard not to take at least one home with us.

Horsey Rides

Hands down, one of Lisi's favorite things is to sit on Dave's shoulders and hang out. On Sundays, while I'm in Primary, Dave will be busy running around or doing things in the clerks office. So what does he do with the babe? He puts her up on his shoulders and she'll just hang out there and play. Dave has trained her so well that he doesn't need to hang onto her or anything.

Part of being on Dad's shoulders is getting a horsey ride. Usually after dinner Dave will give her rides for a few minutes and the house is filled with squeals. I love it.

Keeping Her Occupied

Whenever I'm trying to get something done in the kitchen Lisi always manages to be in the play-with-me-or-hold-me-and-if-you-don't-I'm-going-to-scream-and-pull-on-your-leg mood. When this happens I can usually just open a cupboard or the pantry and the tears will magically disappear. Then it manages to turn into a mess I have to clean up, but I would rather clean up a mess than have a tiny person I'm constantly dragging around on my leg.

Happy Halloween!

The Halloween festivities started a couple of weeks before October 31st (Grandpa is sooo happy, I'm sure!). It all started with putting up some decorations that Grandma and Grandpa sent us.

We then got a package from Grammy and Pop Pop which was filled with candy. Dave came home from work one evening and grabbed a couple of Reese's. Lisi wanted to know what was so special about a Reese's so she grabbed one right out of Dave's hand and started gobbling it right down.

We had our ward Trunk-or-Treat the Friday before Halloween and usually Dave isn't too fond of the idea of dressing up, but this year he was all into it.
Dave: Gorilla
Lisi: Banana
Me: Banana tree
(We got 2nd place for best family costume!)

We then went to a farm to pick a pumpkin and get some apple cider donuts.

On Halloween, the application Dave is on at work put together a little Trick-or-Treating so Lisi and I headed over there in the afternoon. Dave took his little banana around to the offices so he... she could get some candy.
Do you think she had fun?

That night, Lisi was a little worn out from all the festivities and skipped out on Trick-or-Treating. She handed out a few pieces of candy and went right to bed. I would have to say it was a very successful Halloween!
