october was a very family fun filled month.
we covered all the october have-to's, which included, but not limited to:
*visiting the pumpkin patch - we don't go all out for this. it's in the parking lot at a church here in town, which they have fixed up really cute. we were there about 15 minutes. all i wanted was a cute picture of the kids.
this is what we got:
jillian (who normally begs to hold/touch kade), did not want him anywhere near her. makes for a really sweet fall picture!
she did finally sit next to some pumpkins for a picture alone, but that was it! so the pumpkin patch was kind of a fall family picture fail! but it was still fun for jillian to pick out a few pumpkins to bring home.
*we carved pumpkins - J liked the gooey stuff inside.
*we had some orange cupcakes
*a very cute cowgirl, and her very cute baby cow came to visit!
*we spent halloween night at heidi and brent's.
we took jillian down the street to trick or treat. it didn't take her long to figure out that she could walk up to someone and say "please" (she couldn't get trick or treat down) and they would put candy in her bag. she walked probably 5-6 blocks, but then we carried her back, because she started to get slower and slower.
when we got back to heidi and brent's, we helped pass out candy to the hundreds (literally) of kids still trick or treating. this may have included jillian putting a chewed up starburst in a kid's bag. oops!
our sweet family - love our little farmer and her livestock.
whenever she saw someone in an odd/scary costume, she would just stare forever, and then look at us like "umm..did anyone else just see that?"
we finally did get some semi-cute pics of the kiddos with some pumpkins in the back yard! as far as pictures go, i've learned to roll with the punches and take whatever we can get!
and that sweet sibling love pretty much wraps up the month of october!
i just really love fall. it makes me happy.
