snapshots of our week 10/6 - 10/12

Sunflowers were admired.

Silly pictures were taken. 
Jack was totally unimpressed, 
and Charlie had to take a picture in ever single cut-out.
  
Pumpkins were picked.

Baby pumpkins were painted.

Scarves were worn... with tank tops.

Scarecrows were made.

Last Saturday morning we decided to take the boys to pick out pumpkins.
It was perfect - a bright, sunshiny day, still cool outside, and best of all we beat the crowds of other families (the pumpkin patch was offering free hay-rides that afternoon). If you are a parent of small children, you know what I'm saying. We let the boys choose their baby pumpkins to paint. I chose a white pumpkin just to look pretty, and Robbie chose the big pumpkin for us to carve.

This week we enjoyed Mr.Wonderful being home for extra days with Fall break. We painted pumpkins and made scarecrows to add to our little bit of Fall decor. I couldn't hold off making soup any longer despite our warm afternoons, and we enjoyed taco soup last night for the first time since winter. The only thing I think I'm missing is a candied apple from the fair and much cooler weather.

Hope you are enjoying Fall as much as we are.

Oh, I almost forgot, we have a winner!
Abby I will contact you soon :)
