the time, the time, who's got the time?!

I should just accept and admit that I will never be able to be a regular blogger. It's so time consuming! I'll never give up on blogging, because it is a great way to record what happens in our lives and, if it weren't for my blogs, I would be missing chunks of photos from my kids lives since our computers have crashed and left the unprotected photos that I may have forgotten to back up, well, unprotected. Meaning: gone. Forever. Sad. So when I went to look up our family photos from the past four years at the pumpkin patch, I was upset to find that I was missing most of October 2007. I knew that I had posted some of those photos on my blog back then and so I was able to recover one shot of the girls with their pumpkins for this post today. Whew!

Anyway, we took our fourth annual trip to Nelson's Pumpkin Patch in Emerado, ND on Sunday. We always have a great time and the girls look forward to it each year. It's hard to believe that next October Alex will be the same age that Marah was the first time we took her! As I was going through the pictures I took on Sunday I was struck by how sweet it is that we have these pictures of the kids each year and how much they have grown. So I thought I should post them here and wish you all a wonderfully pleasant October and harvest season! We are certainly enjoying it here.

2007- Marah (3) and Jenna (7)

2008- Jenna (8), Alex (2 itty bitty weeks!), Marah (4)

And then, just because I couldn't resist, my little gooby-goob each year on the hayride :)

Sigh... memories. They make my heart happy :)

Make each day count!
