My Dad came up for a visit. We had a wonderful time…except for the stomach bug that kept his long-time girlfriend, S, in the hotel room all weekend.
The very next weekend we went back to the same place for the pumpkin fields. Notice that we were all wearing short sleeves (and were too hot in long pants!) last weekend, yet had to drag out the fleece jackets just seven days later (and were still cold!)?
We’ve watched Olivia play some great soccer.
We carved some fantastic pumpkins. My carving contribution was an Elmo for Amelia, but I didn’t even realize until I uploaded pictures that I never took a picture of it. I hope it’s not mush when I head out to snap a picture of it in all it’s lighted glory. I just went to check: Yep…mush. There will be no photographic record of the cuteness. 😦
Olivia and Owen dressed for 80s Day at school. Yes, I’m completely aware that the 80s Rocker wig and the preppy turned up collar don’t go together. 🙂 I wanted to turn Owen’s curls into a “Flock of Seagulls” style or use a piece of the wig to make a “tail”, but he would have nothing to do with those once he saw this monstrosity! Olivia thought it was HILARIOUS that I dressed like this every day when I was her age!
Some little sweetheart decided she just had to turn 2!!!
We trick or treated in our neighborhood after the birthday party. Yes, it’s weird, but our city doesn’t do trick or treating on Halloween. The city schedules it for the afternoon of the closest Sunday. Our neighborhood does their own little thing on the Saturday evening closest to Halloween. It is VERY strange to get used to…
Olivia and Owen had a little lunchbox surprise for Halloween.
