Geese, Leaves, and Frosting

Hunter finally got to decorate the cookies that he missed out on because he was sick. His best friend, Emma, from next door helped us out. They thoroughly enjoyed it. Ainsley thought she was so big too as you can tell by the look on her face in this next picture. I spent most of the time watching her and cracking up.

At this point, four cookies have tops nibbled off as Ainsley decided to taste test each cookie within her reach. I gave her one to focus on, but that wasn't as fun. So here she is yelling at me when I took them away.

She really wanted frosting on hers, so I put a little on. Then all of a sudden, she didn't want to pick it up and get her hands dirty, so she started eating it like this:
Emma put the chocolate sprinkles a little too close to Ainsley who took a huge handful and flung it on her cookie. Then she didn't like the sprinkles stuck to her hand and started shaking and flinging them all over the kitchen.

Then she attempted to eat the sprinkles, which she decided she didn't like and starting spitting them out. She even has them stuck under her nose.
She's had enough, and is mad at the sprinkles and is shaking/clapping her hands violently to get rid of them.

Random picture of Hunter who rediscovered his swim goggles yesterday. He is eager to get the super hero cape I sewed him for Christmas to complete his look. He told me he can't be a superhero yet until he gets his cape.

We also went to the park to feed the ducks and play in the leaves on Sunday. They were in their Christmas clothes for church, I got some great pictures of them in the fall leaves.

I love these two pictures of them peaking around the tree. I think I just might frame them.

Feeding the ducks and geese. You can't tell in these pictures, but they were just swarming around us, so I put the kids up on this grate out of harms way. The geese came up to their faces and some were hissing, so I didn't want them that low to feed them. Hunter thought that this was delightful, and had so much fun. We were here for about 45 minutes. We had a huge bag of old bread. I had to watch Ainsley because she would eat the bread instead of throwing it. Yuck!

Ainsley wasn't really too sure about the whole thing. She thought the geese were a bit scary.
We also had Starbucks to top the whole day off. Yummy. Hunter had kids hot chocolate, and I had the gingersnap latte. Ainsley was happy with just the coffee cake. A little treat, because unlike most of America, we rarely go to Starbucks. But I had a gift card.
