Kate Caroly Carr

A few pictures from the last 2 weeks. She sleeps 24/7 and has grown an inch in the last week. Her sweet disposition has won our hearts!

We Love Tess

We sure love this little girl. Made this short video thinking about the Thompson Family Reunion in Florida next week.

Potty trained!

Ruth has been so good this week! In three days she has gone from a diaper-loving baby to a potty-trained-underwear-loving master of the potty. Zero accidents. We are so proud of her and grateful for her enthusiasm.

Happy Halloween 2016

Happy Halloween! Somehow we lost Ruth's costume last minute (she was going to be the cutest little mouse you've ever seen) and had to come up with a new one as we were walking out the door. Lucky for us, Daniel was not using his Halloween hat and hair due to a last-minute trip to Pennsylvania.

Our neighborhood is a tricker-treater's dream. Almost every house participating, lots of cute kids dressed up with their parents. RJ and L spent the evening with friends while I took R and T around. We had so much fun.

Tessie's 1st birthday

Tessie turned 1 in September. We were very happy to have lots of family join in on the birthday bbq we had in her honor (G'ma and G'pa Thompson, Grammy and G'pa Carr, Debbie, Oliver, Teddy, Summer, and Aurelia). She is just as perfect as ever. Happy, sweet disposition, easy going. She walks everywhere and loves to explore every nook and cranny. Three teeth, baby-blue eyes and lots of white hair. She's the best!

CTR activities we all wish Grandma and Grandpa Thompson would plan...

I know that is a funny name for a blog post, but every time we go to a fall festival Daniel, I + kids have so much fun that we secretly (and openly) wish that these activities would be recreated at Camp Thompson Ranch for all the extended family to enjoy. This time I took pictures of the activities to share... just in case they like any of the ideas, too.

Bean bag toss

Silly signs and photo-ops
