Sometimes you feel like a SLACKER

Good Heavens- has it really been WAY over a week since I posted?  We’re alive, I promise, although sometimes I wonder if we’re really alive, or just mostly. 

Piper picked up a nasty bug last week sometime.  Monday she was sick.  Sick.  Lovely.  And Wednesday?  Wednesday she decided to share the fun with me.  Fantastic.  Why is it that just when you feel like you’ve crossed all your hurdles, you have to go around the lap again???

And now that I’ve got my feet back underneath myself, I tried logging on to work tonight and found that the system will be down all weekend.  Double fantastic.  Fan.Tas.Tic.

Anywhoo, enough with the grouching.

So I guess I have a lot to catch up on; I feel like since Piper’s been in the hospital the blog has been put on the back burner.  And now I’m overwhelmed at the prospect of getting back up again, so bear with me…

Last weekend, my sister-in-law, Courtney, took pictures of Piper out at the pumpkin patch.  We had SO much fun.  The farm we went to is HUGE (around 1200 acres, if I remember right), with lots of different sections of pumpkins that you could choose from.  There’s something like 8 miles of corn mazes that you can wander through (but with a 17-month-old, that just did NOT sound like fun), farm animals to pet, kids mazes, hay rides, bouncy castles, caramel apples…  By this time in the season, the plants are pretty much dried up, but the pumpkins are still on the vine.  They even give you carving knives to be able to harvest your pumpkins.  Fun!

Here are a few of my favorite pictures- Piper enjoyed (surprise, surprise) being the center of attention.
