October in Review

Here are some pictures of some of the things we did as a family this October. It has been a very busy and exciting month. For those of you who don't know we also found out that we will be having a little boy in March. Daniel is so excited to have a brother. Kaylie is excited about the baby, but would really like it to be a sister.

On Columbus Day Jeff and I took to the kids to a pumpkin patch and had a blast. We are planning to make this a family tradition. We all really enjoyed the fresh, hot apple cider donuts. YUM!!!!!! There is also a video of Daniel trying to roll down the Jack and Jill Hill. It is hilarious!

A couple of weeks later the kids got to carve and paint their pumpkins. Daniel wanted to try and carve a pumpkin for the first time. He picked out the design and I helped him cut out the mouth and even up the eyes and nose, but he had a blast scooping out the inside. We later roasted the seeds and he and Jeff loved them. Kaylie loved painting her pumpkin. She put all different colors on it but in the end the all messed together to make a tan pumpkin, but she loved it.

Daniel excitedly told me he wanted to be a frog this year for Halloween, but not any old green frog, he wanted to be a poison's tree frog. Talk about a homemade costume this year. Kaylie wanted to be a ladybug. I had fun making both kids costumes this year. We had our cousin's come over and went to our Ward's Trunk or Treat. The kids had a lot of fun acquiring their candy, but they loved looking at it all afterwards; especially Kaylie. It will be interesting to see what they want to be next year.

This set of pictures is of the kids having fun in the fall leaves this year. It took Kaylie awhile to want to roll and play in the leaves like her brother and when she finally did my battery died on my camera. That seems to be how it always works though. Here is hoping for another nice day so we can try for some more pictures.

Last but certainly not least are some fun pictures of the kids in October. The upper left hand corner picture is of the two of them dancing before church one Sunday. I had to put the one of Kaylie asleep on the couch in because she looks like such a cute angel and because she has decided for the most part to give up naps. Here is to growing up. Daniel and Kaylie both love to draw. Lately Daniel has been asking me to help him spell, which in and of its self is funny because I am a horrible speller. Here is to the day when he wants more than family names or cat and dog. Now Kaylie is wanting to spell like her big brother, lets hope they are both better than I am.
That is all now. I have a feeling November is going to fly by just like October did. Until next time. Enjoy!!!!
