Reaping what I sowed....

Remember years ago when our parents told us, "One day you will reap what you have sown..."And today that proved to be true. Today I spanked Josiah on his bottom and he laughs and says, "That didn't even hurt!" It was all a game to him. And I say, "Josiah, you're not supposed to laugh when mommy spanks you." (As I'm trying to keep from laughing myself, b/c he's making me laugh!) And he says, "But, it was funny...." I said, "It's not funny when you get spanked." And he replies, "Yeah, but I'm a silly nugget-head!"

I remember numerous times when my mom would spank us and my brother and I would laugh and tell her that it didn't hurt. And she was always trying to keep from laughing with us!! But, when dad got home, it was another story!

So, today I'm reaping what I sowed years ago....what a weird feeling!

Pumpkin Patch

On Saturday we took the boys to the pumpkin patch and they got to ride the little train and the hayride out to the pumpkin patch, which looked like it was really a mowed down corn field with pumpkins in it! Oh well! They both loved petting the animals!! My favorite was the donkey because he reminded me of the donkey on Shrek! Check out all our pics under the Family pics link!

I absolutely LOVE all the colors outside right now!!! Last year we didn't see any b/c we were in FL and here in Bloomington, it's so beautiful right now! Our backyard is starting to show lots of colors now too, so we took some pictures in the yard yesterday.

My boys have learned how to play the Nintendo wii at my parent's house and other people's houses, but since they do not have a wii yet at home, they like to improvise and still play the games without the wii. Here are some pictures of them boxing with their water wings on their hands for boxing gloves and the string that hangs from my ironing board is what they're boxing. Then of course, they start boxing each other. The pictures are a little blurry due to some fast moves! Guess the wii is on the Christmas list for this year!
