This Month...The Book I Am Really Into (or one I want to get into!): right now i am reading animal, vegetable, miracle: a year of food life by barbara kingslover and i just ordered a copy of monique and the mango rains: two years with a midwife in mali so that will be my next read.
TV Show Worth Watching: i love grey's anatomy and lately i have been watching every episode of jon and kate plus 8 on the discovery channel because it makes me feel like my life isn't so crazy after all!

today we packed up the kids and braved the enormous crowds at boo at the zoo!
esme' is dressing as a princess this year (she is wearing her dress in the photos) but minutes before we left the house she decided to wear this witches hat from the halloween box.
esme' in front of the tiger enclosure, in a tortoise shell,
and in a giant egg!
and last but certainly not least our adorable little guy, seeing the monkeys for the very first time!

we visited a pumpkin patch friday with the cloth diapering mamas i hang out with and their little ones. tony had the day off so he came along. we went on a hay ride, picked pumpkins, watched the kids run through the straw maze, and ate packed lunches. it was a little chiily and we were sprinkled on a couple times but the kids didn't seem to mind. esme' was red nosed and blue lipped when we finally got her to the car to go home. harper slept through most of it!

we found the shelves at a discount store and they are perfect for holding all my buttons and pins. esme' and i made the cute little mason jar pincushion.
the first thing i plan to sew in my new corner are some recycled sweater diaper covers for harper. he has outgrown everything we had for him!! i made him a new pair of pants a week or so ago with my friend paula's help and they are such a great fit on my wonderfully chunky boy i think i will sew him a pair for everyday!
i have made a little progress on joy's longies. i didn't knit a stitch yesterday, otherwise i might have a leg done. they are tuning out really cute. i am going to add little girly ruffles to the bottom!

what i did today:
and i cast on a pair of longies for my good friend joy. she is sewing some wool wraps for harper in exchange. she requested green. I am using the blue/green yarn for the waist and cuffs and the body will be knit with the pretty green.
it was a good day!
