Trick or treat

Tonight me and Madi went to Eastern Market and went trick or treating. Madi was so fun to watch. She would walk up to the houses all by herself and get her candy, then come back and show me what was in her bucket. She loved it, and I loved watching her love it! She is such a cutie. I some how misplaced her huge elephant costume, and had to revert to a kitty beanie, it seemed to work out OK.
This is her after showing off herbucket of candy.

All in a Saturday

Saturday Bryan needed a little time to work on some projects so me and Madi got a mother daughter date. We went to the mall to ride a train where Madi stood up looking out the window shouting "Choo Choo" the whole time. We then went to a big arcade they have there, where Madi instantly gasped in delight.

 Madi ran from game to game, and would yell "tickets" when she won some and put them in her ticket bucket. She won 91 tickets and got to pick out a prize which was pretty exciting for her.
 Then we got home took naps and rested up for the next adventure. We went downtown, where Bryan entertained her with a tennis ball for a long time. Bryan would say count it off for me, and she would go 1, 2, THREEE and then bryan would through it up really high. She would run as fast as she could to get it, it was really cute.

Nanny Days

For almost a year I have been able to be a nanny to this cute little girl. It has been such a wonderful experience. Madi and Claire have become such good friends. They are always running around the house laughing, chasing each other, playing, and just having fun. I work about 30 hours a week on 3 days and then I get 2 days off so it is an ideal situation. I am always trying to get them out on fun adventures. We go to lots of parks, the library, the zoo, farms, museums, we play at the house, we go on nature walks, sometimes we have  pizza night, it is just a lot of fun. It is fun to see them have this friendship too. It is weird to think I only have a few months left and then baby #2 comes!

 We had a pumpkin carving day!

 Here we are at a really cute farm. They have a great petting zoo, lots of little playgrounds, hayrides, a pumpkin patch, horse rides, basically a little kid heaven!
