Carving pumpkins....

Sunday was a fun little day at our house! We got to carve pumpkins with our little pumpkin for the first time and we had such a good time doing it. It's so funny to watch Maizie when we introduce something new to her and she loved carving pumpkins. This is actually one of my most favorite things to do around this time of year and I have some really fond memories of doing this with my dad! I hope Maizie enjoys it as much as I still do over the years!

First, she kissed it!
I enjoy this face, it was her first dig into the pumpkin and she wasn't too sure about what she found inside.
It didn't take her long to get the idea and she started pulling out the insides, while Tyler and I kept swatting her hands away from her mouth! Gross pumpkin insides! :)

Family photo with our finished products. The one on the right is a neat idea, you just take a drill and randomly drill holes into the pumpkin. It looks pretty cool lit up!

My little pumpkin and I!

Our new favorite activity....

Recently, Tyler stuck Maizie in the laundry basket and pushed her around the house which was a huge mistake because now we can't get her out of it. Now, every night after bath time she finds the basket no matter where its hiding and climbs in for her evening ride. Its pretty cute, I'm just glad its Tyler that she expects to do this and not me! I don't know that my back could take it. Here are a few pictures of her enjoying her rides through the house! :)

*not sure why its underlined above, but I got tired of trying to figure it out!

Goofy girl...

Here are some funny pics of our funny little girl lately. She has started really moving and a shaking which has been a lot of fun for Tyler and I to watch her change from day to day! She literally does something new everyday, its pretty cool!

Maizie also had her cousins in town a few weekends ago, which was lots of fun. Maizie was a good hostess and got out her new jump house for everyone to play on! We have it set up in the basement so we are pretty pumped that we will be able to use it year round.

D and J taking a moment to strike a pose!
Preparing ourselves for Halloween! Maizie is going to be a pumpkin this year! I'll be sure to post pics!
Having a drink, which mostly ends up all over her clothes.
Playing with our bar stools! She likes hiking her leg up to get in-between the chair legs, she looks like she's in a pin. This reminded Tyler and I of the parallel bars, maybe we have a future olympian on our hands! :)
Practicing her moves!

Out and about...

Here are a few more pics of Maizie hitting the Plaza Art Fair with her cool new cousin Chase! Chase was born September 12th!

Here's baby Chase enjoying the Art Fair!
Family shot!

Long time no blog.....

Hello again, I guess we've just been super busy (and tired) and have not blogger lately. All is well at the French household. Maizie is getting closer and closer to walking, I'll have to post some video of her doing so later! Its pretty crazy how much they change in 10 months!

We are slowly but surely getting settled in the new house. I can't say a single room is completely show ready but its getting there, its been fun to slowly decorate and find things that we really like, which I feel will probably continue over the next year or so. :)

Here are some recent pictures of our little cutie!


P.S.- Ok, I just downloaded my camera and realized a lot has happened since I last posted, I mean we have a new family member for goodness sake (Niki and Adam had their baby boy)! So look for another post soon!
