Pumpkin Patches & Wild Things

What a wonderful weekend we had!!!

This was our first weekend to have Ella at the new house when we weren't having to move! Woo hoo!!! Friday night, she wanted to eat Mexican, so we went out to eat and to get her a few new clothes from Target...our little long legged lady didn't have a single pair of pants that came past her ankles here!! Our big plan was to go see Where the Wild Things Are on Saturday. When she was with us regularly, we read that book just about every night...and she absolutely loves it. So last year when we found out that they were making a movie of it, we told her and the poor thing has been waiting for at least 7 months to finally see it!!

Saturday morning, we got up, got ready, and I was asking her what else she'd like to do with our Saturday. She first wanted to go to a museum, but I told her there really weren't any around here...and her next idea was finding a Pumpkin Patch, getting a pumpkin, and carving it! (She also wanted to make a "calabaza pie" which she informed me was "pumpkin pie" in Spanish, but it turns out neither of us or her Daddy like calabaza or pumpkin pie, so we skipped that part.) We'd never been before, so I got online and sure enough, one of the Methodist churches in Beaumont had one! So...that's what we did! First, saw our movie...
and then headed out to the Pumpkin Patch!

After that, we came back to the house to carve Mr. Huggy Face (guess who named him?)...

And had some homemade pizzas! It was such a perfect that we will definitely treasure!

It is so funny to see Kamden with Ella. He absolutely lights up when she's around...speaking of the little man, he's already got another tooth! Just a couple days after my last post I noticed his other front bottom tooth was poking through! He's also gotten really good at scooting anywhere he wants to go. I have a video that I hope to find time to upload overnight...he's started getting up on his feet and pushing a blanket around on the floor. He is just getting way too big too fast!

So that's what's going on these days with the Breaux Fam...what's going on with you?
(Ella took that pic of Kam...and I had to include this last one in all his Little-Man glory!)
