Trick or Treat

Wesley said it this way: "We have enough candy to last us three months." I hope so! Notice how good they are at organizing the candy into different types.

We had a fun night walking the neighborhoods nearby. Wesley's mummy costume lasted only half of the night; it started falling off, which actually gave it a little more character :) He changed into Darth Vader on our second round of the evening. In case you needed to know, Andrew is a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and Brooke is the green M&M.

I wish we could have stopped at each one of your doors, but since we could not, here is our wish to you and our very own "Trick or Treat!"

Faulkner Farms Pumpkin Patch

One of my favorite things about fall is the pumpkins. I love taking the kids to a pumpkin patch. There is a famous one nearby that we had not yet been to, so I decided to take them to visit this year. I was a little worried that Wesley and/or Andrew might think that they were getting too big for such childish activities, but they were still willing to go. We had a great time: pumpkin scavaging, bale mazes, sunflower mazes, hay ride, funnel cakes, bale climbing, and even a pumpkin launcher. Seriously, this guy created a pumpkin launcher, which shoots pumpkins into the air, and then we observe how it crashes and splatters. The boys, of course, loved this!

The pictures listed first are the winners of our pumpkin scavage. Andrew found the ugliest pumpkin; Brooke found the biggest, and Wesley found the smallest pumpkin.

Still sleeping sweetly

I know my kids are 9,7, and 4, but they still like to all sleep together in the same bed----a twin bed, at that. I don't know how old they will be, when they just decide that this is no longer something they want to do. However, I had to try to catch a picture and share it with you. I have a feeling they are going to be running out of room very shortly. By the way, we only allow them to do this on the weekend. School nights require a good night of sleep, which also requires some space (according to my logic).
