Fall Fun

October has been full of fall fun.  We've been  super busy!   We made scarecrows with all the leaves in the yard!!!

Went pumpkin picking....

Played in the leaves.....

Participated in Trunk or Treat at church....Jim hooked up the car with cool ghosts that flashed!

Carved pumpkins....Lucas was NOT a fan of touching the inside of the pumpkin!!!

Halloween Parades and Parties at School.

Then we had 3 nights of trick or treating....Safe Night at the High School, Family and the neighborhood.

I think we are set with candy until Easter :)

 this was after visiting 8 family houses!

 Finished with pumpkin shaped pizza for dinner before trick or treating on the street!

Happy Halloween!

Weekend Away!

We invited the Sten Family to join us for a weekend at the cabin. While it was a short weekend, we all had a blast! 

The boys did lots of shooting!

 The boys attempted to make their own mini campfires!  

 The weather was warm enough to play on the rocks and wade through the water.

We played on the playground in Waterville and walked the bike trail.

Hoping to plan a longer weekend in the future!

Goodbye Summer, Hello Schoolyear!

The boys started school this week!!!  Eric was completely ready to go back to see his friends.  He is in class with one of his good friends and he has Math class with his best friend, Ryan.  Jacob was a little anxious but he has done great. Two boys from his tee ball team are in his class so he knew a couple of kids. They both seem to really like their teachers.

 It was tough watching Jacob get on the bus Tuesday morning but it helped that his big brother was there to help him.

While the boys were at school, Lucas got to spend a couple of days with his cousin!  We love having Gabriel.  He is such a good baby!

Lucas had his 9 month check up this week.  He weighs in at 15 lbs 15 ozs and is 27 inches long.  He is still such a peanut!!!

Lucas loves anything he can "drive".  He will sit forever and let the boys push him back and forth through the house on his truck.

 We bought him a car that we can push him around outside in too. He loves riding down the street!

 We have a busy fall planned already!  Fall Ball starts for Eric this weekend, then community day and a cabin trip with friends.  Hoping to fit a camping trip in there somewhere before the weather turns too cold.
