Day 21: One, Choo "punkas"!

Today we took the girls to a pumpkin patch back in my home town.

Unfortunately, there was miscommunication about the hours of business, and we showed up 30 minutes before closing. Bummer!

Even though we didn't get to go do all the farm activities, Ellie Faith still had a blast!

She started out saying pumpkin clear as day, but the pronunciation has regressed to punkas.

that's not me with Ellie, that would be my sister, MaryGrace or Drace according to Ellie:)

Of course I had grand visions of adorable sister pictures and dressed the girls accordingly. Yeah, didn't happen, but that's ok. There's always next year right?

Since we didn't get to spend the afternoon at the pumpkin patch, we headed to a near by park, where Ellie proceeded to give herself her second black eye in a week's time.

Thank goodness she doesn't have to go back to the doctor until she's two, otherwise they might think she is a battered child and call DCFS on me.;)

Ellie loves going head first down the tallest and curviest of slides, but has been terrified of swings since she was 6 months old. But today she discovered just how fun wingin' could be! 

After the park we headed over to my grandparents house and spent the rest of the afternoon with them.

y'all my grandparents are almost 90! Don't they look amazing!?

Apparently, all the festivities wore the littlest of the tiny humans out.

thanks for the precious outfit, Aunt Jess!

This is Ellie's 2nd day without a nap!!! Miraculously, she has been a gem and our day has been fit free! Minus the throw down in the dirt when we left the pumpkin patch. But I think that had more to do with the fact that mommy made the mistake of saying she needed her diaper changed.

Apparently my child prefers to be left to wallow in her filth. 

Anyway, I am a little scared the bottom is about to fall out due to the no nap in. 48 hour situation we have going on here, but so far so good.

I am betting bedtime comes a wee bit early tonight ... For everyone.

It's hard to believe we only have 10 days left in this writing challenge!!

Update: epic toddler meltdown happen 2.5 seconds later! Nothing some new jammies, snuggles with mommy, and some DocMcstuffins couldn't fix.
