Some of my favorite fall colors.
We carved our pumpkins. Tristan did a great job making a funny face on his with a little help from Daddy. After daddy helped him with the face, he did the decorations by himself (stabbed the knife into the pumpkin a few times.) Our pumpkins are all carved. Jason made an owl looking jack-o-lantern. Tristan's was a funny face. Wade got a Thomas the Train, and mine is supposed to be a cougar slinking through the trees, but uhhh....you have to know what it is in order to make it out. I'll have to take pictures of all of them before they start rotting!
The boys and I arrived home the other day and so this little furry friend munching on our bushes. We don't have bunnies around here (too many coyotes), and this one sure looks like someone's pet. I'm afraid it didn't last long... We tried to catch the bunny and help it, but one look at the boys charging at it, and it took off running.
It was a beautiful day Saturday, so we took the boys up into the hills for a little hike.
We saw lots of evidence of wildlife, but no actual animals other than the 3 you see in this picture. :)
Saturday night our cousin Rachelle had a bunch of friends over for a fancy dinner before their Homecoming dance. Tristan and I went to help serve the meal. Tristan was excited to be a waiter and help! He looked pretty spiffy too!
Being very careful not to drop anything! He was a hit! All of the high school kids thought it was really fun to have him as one of their waiters.
After gospel meeting on Sunday we attended Ben and Darren's surprise 30th birthday party at Caffe Mela. Emily and Clara made delicious food (ribs!!) and fun was had by all. It was great to get our kids all together.
Our attempt at getting all of the kids to look and smile.
2 years ago after Halloween there was a huge sale on costumes that didn't sell. I picked up a few for only $2 each! I got a few different sizes for the kids to use as dress-up outfits. Yesterday the boys decided to be a puppy and a bear. I thought Wade looked really cute and snuggly in his teddy bear outfit!
