October phone pics

I stink at uploading my phone pics but my phone is low on memory so I need to delete them. Note to self-buy a freaking memory card so I don’t have to keep deleting all my pics and apps! Moving on…

First round of pics: Watching the carousel (can you find them)? I gave in and we went on the carousel. They LOVED it


Trip to El Dorado: Stuff we got Amy for her half marathon, Aiden chillin on the way to the pumpkin patch, kids “hiding” from Amy, ready to cheer on the cats


Elsie riding in the car seat in my car, sold sign at our house!!! Zoe and Elsie spooning, boys looking cute before a play date and my first pair of leg warmers I made!



Pumpkin patch: Looking cute again, Ian found his pumpkin, Gage found his, playing with our friend Ryann, hiding horses by the corn maze, on the hay bale ride and all the kids playing.


That’s all for now. I’m sure I’ll have more soon when I have to delete everything off my phone again.

Pumpkin Carving 2011

Tonight we had dinner and carved pumpkins over at my sister’s house. I always pick one that is way harder then my non artistic self can do and usually want to throw it across the room before I finish. I pulled through and had great help from Aiden though.halloween6halloween3

The finished products. Derek’s, mine and Amber’s. Nice work guys!

The Pumpkin Patch

*If you read my sisters blog, you might want to skip mine. I stole all her pics so you’ve seen everything I am about to post*
Last Saturday while we were in El Dorado, we went to Walter’s Pumpkin Patch. I think I get more excited then the kids about going to this pumpkin patch. I thought this was my 3rd year going but looking back at pics, I went twice 2 years ago and not at all last year.
2009 and 2011

We got there early afternoon and it was in the 80s. When we left, it was in the 60s. That’s good ole Kansas for ya. It is such a fun pumpkin patch. There are tons of things for us the kids to do, amazing food and the friendliest workers.
Don’t be jealous of my ups

Don’t let Harper fool you, she tried jumping out of this after Amy took this picture. She rode on the tractor next to the driver with her mom
Near impossible to get a picture of the 3 of them SMILING. Good thing their so darn cute!
Harper and me had a great time on the swings. Her smile melts my heart
I don’t’ know if it’s because I am about 15 lbs heavier, out of shape, Paxton weights about 20 more lbs or all of the above but these bikes used to be my favorite and I had to push the thing after awhile this year! FYI- I made it further then my mom though!
Me and Pax on these same things 2 years ago Sad smile
These bikes were way easier but we felt like clowns!  Can you tell us adults had just as much fun as the kids?

Love my niece and nephews!
