My Kids' ArtI walked through the door Friday afternoon to see this propped atop the fridge.
On top of the fridge was the proper place for this bit of school-made preciousness because already displayed there was this fun bit of handprint art Kate and I did a few weeks ago at home. (I love how some of the ghosts even seem to have noses and mouths!)
Autumn AttireWhen Kate was a baby and I was an even more avid eBay shopper, I bought a fabulous 24-piece lot of fall clothes from Gymboree, size 6-12 months. (I remember calculating it was about $300 worth of clothes and shoes, and my winning bid was about $25.) Kate's wardrobe for her first fall is still among my favorite clothes in our growing collection, and now it's Claire's turn to wear those great fall outfits. Like this denim jumper and orange shirt:
I love dresses like this but refuse to pay full price for them! I bought this one for 75% off around Christmastime last year! (Fancy Easter dresses of this style, I've bought on eBay—I highly recommend it!)
Fun FirstsWhen it comes to kids, even fairly mundane things are notable when it's the first time. Today, each of our girls had one.
Kate's first caramel apple. She really wasn't sure how to tackle the thing, but after I did the first bite to give her a starting point, she enjoyed it. She was surprised to discover there was actually an apple inside. I don't know if that's because I'd billed the item as a dessert, so fruit came as a shock, or whether she thought "candy apple" was kind of like "gummy bear"—shaped like it but not actually the thing? I don't know.
So that was our weekend. I hope you had a good one too.
What's something fall-y you did this weekend?
