After our weekend of hard work....we had a lot of stuff to burn. We had a ton of fun roasting marshmallows with our friends, Hayne, Erica and Layla!

We had a great weekend as a family being outside and playing a lot. Here are some pictures of Piper's first braided ponytail! I decided that I should probably start learning how to do this stuff since we're having another GIRL! Below are some pictures of Piper's outfit of choice and her helping Daddy mow.

Finger Painting

Heeding some advice of my aunt- the preschool genius- I'm trying to get Piper to take some risks and get dirty. She has already mastered bugs (minus butterflies- they are too unpredictable) and puddles. So we attempted some finger painting- this lasted about 6 minutes from set-up to clean-up.

Time for a big girl room....

We moved Piper into a big girl bed this weekend and began work on the nursery for Baby Sister! Piper has done an excellent job with the transition- of course, we didn't expect anything less! Thankfully, Grammie and Granddaddy were here to help us. So glad for them!

Piper and the Tomato(es)- Part 2

As previously captured (see post from August 2007), Piper loves tomatoes! We have baby tomatoes which she is in charge of picking when they turn red. Here she is:

Also, here are some of our end-of-summer pics- Piper decided that puting stickers all over mom's face was the perfect art project. And here she is on the "shoe"- mommy's toy when she was little!

Lucy & Piper

Here are some pictures of Piper and her friend, Lucy Sloan (sister to Asher & daughter to Matt and Leslie). We were at a staff overnight which was sooo fun! We hung out a lot with my staff friends and spouses (if applicable) at the beautiful Windy Gap. It is a huge blessing to begin the Fall knowing that these folks are in it too! We are so thankful to live here and have these friends!
