I found a list of the funny things Victoria has said lately and I need to write them down. Some are old, but they are all pretty funny.

Victoria had on a princess dress that has sleeves, but none the less was a dress and it was cold. So, I said, "Victoria aren't you freezing?" And she said with the sweetest little smile, " No, cause I have this modest dress on."

Richard is always trying to convince me that we need some kind of a pet, preferably a dog. Victoria thinks we should get a cat or a PIG.

When Reed was crawling and Victoria was obsessed with the Barbie movie Princess and the Pauper one day she came walking in with Reed crawling beside her and said ''Say hello to my puppy Ruffy." "Oh, where's Ruffy?" I would periodically hear her say.

This one has been awhile, but when she was learning new words everyday and still trying to figure out exactly when to use them she said, "Mom, you look like a miracle." That made my day!

This one is a little more recent. Her and Reed have started wrestling and playing together, but every once in a while I will come in and Victoria will just be laying on top of him. One day I over heard her saying, " look Reed I'm the hot dog and you're the bun".

Then just the other day we were getting ready to go to Pumpkin Town USA with some other friends and Victoria came out all dressed in about five different patterns: polka a dots, stripes and flowers and boots. She turned to me with a very proud look on her face and said, "your friends are going to be so impressed." She turned and did a little happy dance. I felt a little like my Mom when she tells of a day my sister Amanda did her own hair and said "aren't you glad you have such beautiful daughters?"

Reed is talking so much and has such a sweet little voice. In the car on the way home from Salem Reed was playing peek-a-boo and laughing so hard. He even picked up on Trick or Treat as we visited some stores last night. Everyone thought he was so cute in his shark costume. He is climbing on everything and is such a boy.

Richard and Victoria changing the oil!
Victoria at the Ben & Jerry's plant in Vermont! She kep calling it Brent and Betsy's! We all loved the tour and ice cream!

We waited for an hour at their playground and the tour only took 15 minutes.

Sunday afternoon strolls!

Halloween preview!
What a scary shark!
Reed and Victoria's purse! My purse!
I'm pretty sure Reed didn't setup these animals all by himself, but he sure looks sheepish!
