Playhouse Disney Live

We headed to the US Cellular Center Friday night to take Sophie to Playhouse Disney Live. Sophie LOVED it. She was dancing, singing and clapping the whole time. She didn't want to leave when it was over and kept asking for Mickey.

Monday Morning

Sophie decided to get the paper towels and wrap them around the house this morning. I couldn't even get made because she looked so funny. This is why I never leave on time :-)

Story time with Dad

We stopped by Grandma and Grandpa's this weekend to play in the leaves since we have zero trees at our house. She was still a little worn out from being sick all week but had a good time!

Sophie spent Sunday making meatballs for her baby... I think a kitchen from Santa might be in her future.

Halloween - Sophie the Rock Star

Sophie was a rock star this year for Halloween and had a ton of fun. She didn't want to put her costume on and was a little crabby when she first woke up from her nap... but when she figured candy was in her future she changed her mood.

We got her to say trick-or-treat at the first few houses but that went out the door and she just started reaching for the candy. After every house she would run down the driveway yelling... let's get more candy.

Pumpkin Carving Time

We started off ok...
Then we thought it was yucky...

And then... I'm totally freaked out, get it away.

Tuesday Morning

So I walk downstairs Tuesday morning to check on Sophie and this is what I find... she took a red pen and wrote all over her face and arms?????

Then we walk outside to get in the car and she just starts walking down the driveway and keeps looking back to see if I'm watching. She gets to the sidewalk and takes off running. I finally caught up to her about six houses down.

Always an entertaining morning at the Potter house!

Pizza Night

Jodi and I decided to make homemade pizza last night and of course Sophie wanted to help with the cooking. It wasn't as good as Pagliai's but not bad for a first try.

Random Pictures

The only reason she's somewhat smiling is because I promised her candy.

Mom... seriously.

Fine... I'll smile.

Another trip to the pumpkin patch...

Pumpkin Patch

We bundled up and headed to the pumpkin patch this weekend.

Saturday Morning

Eating breakfast naked and with no diaper... that's a recipe for disaster.


Even though is was freezing Sophie had a great time at the Iowa Homecoming Parade. We didn't walk away with a lot of candy because she continually ate it during the parade. The Iowa Marching Band was a favorite.

We ended up with quite the collection of beads.

For some reason Sophie wanted to go to sleep with the flyer???? She's slept with it every night since the parade.

Pumpkin Time

Lazy Sunday Morning

I guess she couldn't hear the tv well enough so she tried using her stethoscope...

Too cool for you.

Enjoying some waffles.

Sophie & Michelle

Sophie had a great time with Michelle at Mike's softball game.

Playing hide-and-seek
