Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween from the cutest astronaut, rocket and pirate around!!!


Last Monday was our pumpkin carving night.  Benjamin's face cracks me up in the 2nd picture.  No worries, he got over being grossed out and worked very hard.  He even used a library book to design the face on his pumpkin.  Then the picture of Hunter with his pumpkin makes me laugh--I didn't realize he had such a crazy obsession with it. : )

Around the house...

Hunter, just being fun.  : )
 Benjamin and Hunter decided they wanted to have Preston sleep in their room, and Benjamin got Preston to settle in next to him, for about 30 seconds.  : )  We tucked them in and it didn't take long for Benjamin to call us back in to take Preston to his own bed.  I don't know why he thought it would be hard to sleep with Preston jumping on him.  : )

Saturday David took the boys to the park.  I love the pictures of each boy with a stick.  That's all they need to have a great morning!

 Preston has been big into pretending that he's driving lately.  He wanted me to sit there so that he could drive me to Grandma and Grandpa's house.  : ) 

Pumpkin Patch Fun

We have had plenty of chances to visit pumpkin patches around here.
We went with cousins....

Benjamin's class went on a field trip and I got to tag along...

AND we spent a lovely afternoon with some friends at our favorite nearby pumpkin patch...

Birthday boy!!!

Popsicles in the morning, why not?  It's your birthday!
 PERFECT morning at pumpkin patch, complete with conversation with birth mom.  
PERFECT way to spend the morning.

 Visit to dad's work!
 Cupcakes!  : )


My parents came for a visit from Idaho, and I got great pictures of the boys with their incredible grandparents.  I LOVE the blessing that these good people are in the lives of our boys.  That is the number one reason that I am happy to be in Oregon.  Because, let's be honest.  I loved Ohio. : )  We had a great impromptu party #2 for Preston. : )
 Exploring beautiful Oregon.

Apple Days

Apple juice/sauce making day at grandma and grandpa's.  We got through a LOT of apples.  We also had a great birthday celebration with cousins.  Blessings of being closer to family!
