Every year, right before Hallowe’en, a group of us gather at my grandparents house to participate in the Annual Pumpkin Carve Off! It’s great fun complete with voting and prizes. We had some awesome carvings this year, and some pretty creative looking pumpkins too. Happy Hallowe’en all!

A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. – Inspired by SouleMama
Mya has been trying to feed herself lately and not wanting mommy to help her. To encourage this I bought some pompom balls and showed her how to transfer them from a basket to a bowl with a spoon. She worked on it for a long time before resorting to using her hands and just playing with it. She is getting better and better at this activity and at feeding herself with utensils. Go Mya 🙂
Mya enjoys pop up books so I made this for her….
It was pretty simple to make, especially if you have extra pictures laying around and don’t have to make a trip to get some developed. I have seen these made before and used as a memory game (doubling up on pictures and getting your child to match them) but I decided to use this as a way to help Mya learn some family members names a bit better. I taped it to the back of a piece of cardboard to make it a little more sturdy for her as she is pretty rough on it. I’m hoping it will last a week!
