Ok, so I am trying, trying to do fun things with the girls, activities and what not. Actually, if I don't have a plan for each day it turns into a disaster. By plan, I don't always mean going somewhere, sometimes plan is just different crafts or activities I have for the girls each day. I feel so new at this, trying to be a stay at home mom and coming up with things for the girls to do and teaching them.... it feels a bit awkward for me, but I am learning. And I am not the most creative person in the world so sometimes the girls just rip paper for an activity.
Last week though we had the theme
"P" is for pumpkin.
On Monday we discussed the letter P, the sound it makes and different things that start with the letter "P" We also did construction paper Jack-O-Laterns and red the book, " Biscuit Visits the Pumpkin Patch"
On Monday's we also do "Muffin tin Monday." Thanks to the great idea by my bff Sarah. This past week we put food in the muffin tins that started with the letter "P" or were the color orange. The girls love helping pick out the food and setting it up in the tins. So for this week the girls got:
1. Peanut Butter and Jelly cubes
3. Popcorn (orange popcorn of course)
4. Peanut Butter Cookies (nutter butters)
5. Carrots w/ranch
On Wednesday we went to the "Pumpkin Patch" to be honest it is a little bit of a ghetto pumpkin patch, but the girls had fun! We went with a play group from church (my first time with a new play group), I always get so nervous when I am around new people I don't know, at least a few of my friends were there, and so many of the other moms were very nice!

And on Thursday we made "Pumpkin Bread" I got a delicious recipe from Pinterest form this site! We made one loaf for ourselves and one loaf for someone else.
I tried to hop in a photo with the girls this past week, it is not always easy.....
and of course we enjoyed this little pumpkin
so anyone have ideas for what I can do this week?
