Daddy's little helper

Piper has been so fun lately. Nineteen months has been a dream, in between the tantrums and throwing chewed up food onto the floor. 
But seriously she has becoming helpful arounds here. She loves to help mommy and daddy with the chores. Every night after work Piper helps dad take out the dogs and then gives them their treats and food. Also she likes to help with the laundry and load the washer for us and put laundry soap in the machine. 

What "chores" do you let your little ones help with?

Happy Fall

It's been a while I know. We've just been busy working, playing with Piper and we were able to take a couple trips. 
In September our daycare was closed for a week so we took a quick trip to visit a friend in Chicago. It was so fun! I've never been and B just loved that he was able to get back there even though he doesn't remember much from living there. 
We had a great fall and Pipers first Halloween that she was able to go door to door. She loved it and was so tired and could barely hang onto her bucket by the end of the night but still didn't want us to help her carry it. It was so cute and I can't wait for next year. 

We finally got some family photos done this year. They turned out beautifully and I can't believe how well the photographer got Piper to smile. It was so much fun. 

For thanksgiving we stayed here but the weekend before we went back to Fargo ND to see my family. It was great to all be together again and see all the nephews. We also were lucky in the fact that it was "warm" when we were back there. It was in the thirties. The week after we left it was single digits so I would say we lucked out. 

I'm getting excited for Christmas and can't wait for it to snow. It's not looking a whole lot like Christmas here right now. But it is nice to get out and play without having to bundle up. 

Ok so that's a quick update. If anyone has any great advise on how to handle toddler tantrums please let us know!!
