Finally...Thomas the Train

Riley has been asking for Thomas the Train for a while and she finally got a set for Christmas this year. Thanks to e-Bay she was able to get quite a few engines and lots of tracks. She has been playing with it all week and is getting really good at putting the tracks together. Emily is her favorite engine and I'm enjoying the hours of occupied 2 year old bliss!

Tuckered Out

Riley rode her tricycle so much she wore herself out and had to take a nap on the golf cart. It is amazing how she can sleep through power tools and running equipment.

Proof I used to be blonde...

Here is a picture of Riley from last month and picture of me from probably about 3 decades ago.

My Tractor Buddy

Riley and I worked a little ground a few Saturdays ago in the tractor. She had a good time, but eventually the sunshine and engine hum got the best of her and she zonked out for about an hour. But she was a good buddy to have riding along.

Riley dressed up this year in a homemade costume but I guess I didn't do very well. She wanted to be a Kitty Cat but she was called a Cow, Sheep, Rabbit and Skunk before the night was over!

Brave Girl!

Riley amazes me at how fearless she is. I hope that doesn't prove to be a bad thing in the future. She loves to get corn left in the field and feed it to Rosie (the horse) and Barbie (the cow). We have a few other cows that will eat from your hand but their names are #8 and #22. Riley isn't afraid of a good cow lick or some nibbling from horse lips.

Sick Girl

Riley got sick Sunday afternoon on our way to our church's fall festival, so I got to take a sick day yesterday to stay at home with her. I think she was over it because she acted very much like herself. She put on her backpack so she could go to Grammy and PaPa's house. She made a piece of styrofoam into a swimming pool for her Little People and Tuck the turtle.

One is the loneliest number...

And After. Riley and Reese were going to try to ride the ferris wheel at Mule Day this year. All was going well and smiles were all around until the gentleman working the ride snapped in the bar and the seat gave a little swing. You can see from the before pictures that their faces look a little concerned at this point.

Reese got a little scared, either from the sudden jolt or the very friendly ride worker she wasn't so sure about and she got off. But Riley was able to hang in there and even had a smile on her face at the end. Her eyes were big as saucers on the first trip around but after some waving at her, she was able to wave back and smile. I think she had fun. The best part is the huge smile on the face of the ride worker. He was sweet to the girls.

Riding with Uncle Jesse

Riley got to ride in the combine with my brother this weekend when we were up visiting. She loves riding in the combine and especially enjoyed the buddy seat that was just her size!
