Running Fast

Molly's new fun thing to do is run up and down the hallway as fast as she can. She thinks she is SO fast!

Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Last week we had the chance to stop by a pumpkin patch just a few miles outside of Kirksville. It was such a cold windy afternoon that we didn't spend much time, but it was really fun! Molly would walk from pumpkin to pumpkin and smack each one before moving on.

A little help from Daddy. The vines were tripping her up.

Looks like a good one.

On the way home--SO tired!

NASCAR...quite the deal.

Luke was lucky enough to be given 2 2-day passes to the NASCAR race at Kansas Speedway a couple weeks ago. Us, not being NASCAR fans, thought it would be fun to check it out--and it's free, so why not! We also got to stay at the Ameristar Casino for the night-so it was worth going just for that! Let's just say NASCAR is quite the experience. I have never seen such devoted fans. It was hot, loud & smelled of burning rubber & gas, but nobody really seemed to mind. For us, it got a little old, but we did enjoy it.

The first day. We were a little bored after the however-many lap.

We had track passes, which meant we could go down on the infield before the race and check out the cars.
Working on becoming a "true" race fan-haha!

Before the race, they introduce the drivers and they ride around the track in the back of hummers. This was Carl Edwards #99 (from Columbia, MO)
 Jimmie Johnson ended up winning and he really whooped up-pretty much the entire race. Carl Edwards got 5th I believe.

Shippin' Her Off

That's it...we're boxing her up and shipping her out! Off to stay with Grandma Debbie while Mom & Dad spend the weekend in Kansas City. Good luck Grandma!


 What manners!? We don't got no manners around here! But we do love pizza sauce!!
