Happy Birthday to Mommy

We have officially made it through the first whole week of work, and are getting ready to celebrate Mary's birthday tomorrow. On Tuesday when Drew was over after school, Grandma and Grandpa took all of them to the Cider Mill for a picnic. Since tomorrow's Mary's birthday, the kids helped Grandpa and Grandma Huddas make Birthday Cookies. We finally got around to measuring how much they have grown the last 6 months, and Katie is still the biggest. She is 35 and 1/8" and 30.5 lbs. Seamus is now 34 and 1/2" tall and 25.5 pounds. Helena grew to 33 and 3/4" tall and 24lbs. They were then lucky enough to help me make a Birthday cake too. Below are the pictures of Katie Seamus and Helena playing with Drew, at their picnic, and the trio baking.

Apple Picking 2010

We've survived the first week back to work and to celebrate Pat and I took the kids apple picking on Friday afternoon. We had a lot of fun! The kids loved being able to reach up and pick their own apples and they loved being able to just bite into one even more. We made apple sauce yesterday and apple pancakes this morning. It's officially starting to feel like fall... Week 2 of work starts tomorrow and it's going to be a busy one. Enjoy our trip to the orchard!
