Little Pumpkin

Our little pumpkin enjoyed her first trip to the local pumpkin patch at Halls' Farm. The boys picked out pumpkins, traversed the corn maze with Grandpa and climbed up the slide over and over again. The pumpkin patch has grown in popularity over the last few years and this year their parking area was full and on many evenings, there was traffic getting in and out. I would guess there were 200-300 folks there at any given time.

Paige had her first tooth pop through this week and the one next to it is just below the surface as well. She is trying out her Johnny Jump Up this week. She is interested, but also seems to have scared herself by moving around too much. I think she will really like it ultimately since she enjoys standing on laps.

Weekend Warriors

Or at least that was the plan. We had so many activities planned, but one by one, they fell off the list. Had to reschedule vet visit because Ricardo was too upset, no baseball due to saturated fields, no hockey skating lessons due to a figure skating competition and the list went on. Instead, the kids spent most of their time playing with friends, we had a couple nice dinners at the house with friends and family and we got a few tasks done around the house, including breaking out the indoor and outdoor halloween decorations.
Aidan & Ed
Ed and Aidan got to watch some playoff baseball. This was the last game in the metrodome, as the Yankees beat the Twins for the third and final game of the series. Go Yankees!

Austin, Clifford & Jack-o-lantern

Austin worked with me on completing his Clifford the Big Red Dog - costume decorating. Austin decided to make Clifford a vampire - but what he really meant was "Frankenstein". We have an inflatable Frankenstein in our front yard that Austin has come to love (after overcoming a natural fear of large blow-up yard art).

Warning - cute kid here

And Paige, she just enjoyed the cool fall weather and car trips to church, the car dealership and Lowe's.
