It's been raining and cold most of the week so we were happy to finally have a day outside to play. Most of the leaves have fallen by now, so there was lots in the backyard to play in or with (it was still too wet to make them into a big pile) 
 E filled up his buckets full of leaves. A few were picked just for me and a couple came inside for crafts.

Fine motor skills spider web

We have been doing a lot of Halloween crafts lately. This was one that gave some practice with fine motor skills.  L and E both had fun tracing the `lines` of the spider web with glue, shaking glitter on it and finally adding the spider.

Apple picking. Apple eating

I've always cut up E's apples but he just absolutely loves eating them like this. He'll eat it right down to the core and then ask for another one:)

Sponge painted leaves

We went for a walk to collect some leaves for crafts. This was one of the crafts we did. We sponge painted our leaves (tip-clip a clothes peg to a sponge cut in half for easier control.) Then stamp the paint covered leaf onto a piece of paper.

B on Stage

B was asked to sing at a local community festival. She did really great! L loved getting the chance to see her sing as she didn't get to see her big sisters last performance.
