Fun On the Farm

Every year we have a family get together with my moms side of the family. It is usually the first Sunday in November. We have a pot luck style lunch at a farm in Allison, Iowa. For most anyone who knows me knows that this is the only time of year I usually find myself in "the country" I love getting to see people I only see once or twice a year and Rhea had a lot of fun this year seeing the cows. I took some pictures of Rhea and Phoenix as they played outside just being kids.

Whats over here?

Rhea & Phoenix stop to smile


Halloween was a blast with Rhea this year. She was not sure what was going on the first couple houses we went to but she quickly caught on that if she looked cute and said "Thank you" that people would put candy into her bucket. She was filling up fast and did not want mommy to take any of the candy to help lighten the load. We actually went the night before Halloween to Waverly to trick or treat with her cousins Kallista, Phoenix and Nevaeh. I think they all had fun. Then Halloween I took off work early and Carl met up with us right after he got off work to go trick or treating on Main Street in Cedar Falls. That was fine for the first block before it got crazy busy and the lines were not even moving so we went and made the rounds to Grandparents and Great Grandparents. We ended the night with handing out candy at Grandma Moothart's new house and a last minute late stop at uncle BoBo. It was a fun packed night. Plus Rhea looked soooooo cute.

What a cute Kitty

Waiting for Daddy

On a more recent note Rhea was sick was the flu on Sat all day and we did not make it out of the house much. Then on Sunday Rhea and I attended a bridal shower for my sister Jennie while Daddy, Papa, Grandma B and uncle Adam attended a race. This was fun for both Rhea and I to spend the day together. She seems to be feeling a bit better but is still showing some symptoms of not being quite herself the last couple days.
