jocelyn kay yates.

meet little miss jocelyn kay yates.

born october 21, 2011

4:45 pm

7 lbs 12 oz

19 1/2 inches long

isn't she just the sweetest thing?

congrats and love jacqui & kenten!


tooth number 4.

she has impeccable timing,

she lost her first top tooth.

she's going to be a witch for halloween.

when she puts the hat on and flashes that smile,

she truly looks the part.

now, if the next one comes out soon,
she will be singing

"all i want for christmas is my two front teeth"




p.s. the tooth fairy got a little creative this time.

she brought her a little pouch

for future exchanges between the two of them.

caramel apple party.

today we had a caramel apple making experience.

the kids had never had a caramel apple.

this is what we ended up with.

" little miss i lost another tooth" had to have hers cut up.
"little miss my mouth is too small" also had to have hers cut up. and "mr. this is good, but not the apple part" just chewed off the caramel.

tales from the big red barn.

so, the barn is a m-u-s-t when we go to pa.

soe of us obviously enjoy the horses more than others.

but i think it's safe to say,

everyone enjoys being at the barn.

hiking the mountain.

because fall is such as beautiful time of the year up north,

we all put on our walking shoes

and literally hiked up a mountain.

the scenery was spectacular.

all the orange and yellow and red leaves.

some of us used walking sticks.some of us were quicker than others. some of us got a little tired.

some of us needed a little help.
but we all had a great time.
