We love autumn!

See the knees on her jeans? This is pretty much what her pants look like every single day. I'm afraid I won't have any pants to pass down to someone someday. Tatum still refuses to walk, but is so active and Loves the outdoors, so she ends up dirtying up her knees every day. 

This is Tatum's favorite toy - the cookie jar shape sorter. It sings songs and she likes putting the shapes in and taking them out of the cookie jar (through the hole in the top, not through the proper shape hole. Hmm... maybe we should work on that.) 

Also, we recently had a garden planted in our backyard. I bought another groupon which had some really awesome folks from Revolution Gardens come out and build/plant it for us! 
We've been watering it almost every day and now it is a vibrant garden. Last week, we took our first harvest and had a delicious salad at our Dishman family Christmas dinner. Planted in this winter's garden is broccoli, swiss chard, spinach, radishes and carrots. I am NOT known for having a green thumb, so we shall see how this adventure turns out. However, so far so good. Plus, it's a fun project to do with the kids. They love helping water it and dump our compost bin into the compost pile. They are learning which foods can be composted (banana peels, celery, egg shells) and what can't (dairy and meat). Healthy and educational... two of my favorite things ;)
