Taylor dressed as a Princess Witch and Blake was Enderman again. It was nice weather so the kids played outside, as we waited for Daddy to get here! We were still home when the Whitacre family came to trick-or-treat, we love seeing our friends.  As soon as Daddy got home, we headed out the door...just in time to join up with the Tilford's! It got cold FAST, so we only went to the bus stop and back, we were excited for the Tomlin's to be coming over anyways! We spent the rest of the evening, counting the goodies, handing out candy, and hanging out with Dayna & Josh, while the kids played their little hearts out.


Then came round TWO...we went to visit Aunt Susie's neighborhood because they were having a special trick-or-treat family event. The kids dressed up again and headed to collect more loot! lol! We also got to stop by the Pillow's was such a nice visit. The kids especially loved playing with the puppy!

Autumn visit to the farm

We look forward to visiting a pumpkin patch each October. We have been to several of the pumpkin patches around town, but this year, we opted to return to a small family-owned, working farm. We had already bought our pumpkins, so it was more important to let the kids see some farm animals. Taylor would rather pet a cat, then pick a pumpkin, any day!

It was an absolutely gorgeous day to do anything outside! We got to see lots of chickens, geese, and cats. We saw a bull, some horses, goats, a pig, a couple dogs, and some sheep. We fed most of them and even got lost in the corn maze! Billy and Blake went one direction, Tay and I went the other. I followed Taylor around and around....we were so lost that she began begging me to carry her...I  Billy and Blake were even longer to get out, but they claim they were doing a "word hunt" game inside....hmmm? I think they didn't want to admit that they were lost, and that would cause me more worry for when they leave on their Father/Son hunting trip (in the middle of the woods)!!!

With Fall Comes...




Our walk through the spooky neighborhood...yikes, these people really do set up a creepy cul-de-sac! Poor Taylor had nightmares before, so she walks through with her eyes covered. I think we should take a hint, and STOP subjecting ourselves to this creepiness. This will be our last year of this.
