Trick or Treat

Tonight, we went trick-or-treating with the Daniels kids and then went back to their house for a party. We had such a fun night. Andrew went full speed until his little head hit the pillow.


Let's go get some candy!

Harper was so kind to him...helping him up and down the stairs and making sure he got candy:

I think this picture says it all:

When we went back to the Daniels' house, they had a jumpy with a slide in it! Andrew was in there most of the night.

Tate helped Andrew climb the ladder and then showed him all the best ways to get down the slide:

Andrew was a very quick study:

Eating a delicious mummy hotdog:

and trying some cotton candy. He took one bite and told me, "I don't like it". bummer. I had to eat the whole thing myself.

This is how he looked about 10 seconds after his head hit the pillow.

Pumpkin Carving

Tonight, we went over to Jill and Peter's house to carve pumpkins. Andrew was very excited about it...until he touched the inside of the pumpkin. Then he was off and running...playing with Tate and then coming back to check the progress of the pumpkin every few minutes.

Scooping guts...

And wiping them on his pants:

Andrew's finished pumpkin:

Ellie worked SO hard on her pumpkin. She was completely focused.

One of the finished pumpkins:

Pumpkin guts, anyone?

Andrew 'helping' Tate with a puzzle:

Having a little fun with the 'baby'.

I put Andrew's pajama top over his head and he got mad because he wanted it like this:

Fabulous Fall weekend

This weekend, we went to see our friends, Amie, Tim and Lucas in Michigan. We had SUCH a good time. (I cannot believe I did not get any pictures of Amie).

First, we went to Crane's apple orchard and had lunch at a very cute restaurant.

Andrew wasn't liking the old fashioned high chair so much:

Sweet Lucas:

LOVE this picture of Lucas:

The pumpkin house:

How cute are these two?

Picking apples!

It was pretty rainy and cold outside so we left shortly after the boys picked a few apples. Andrew ate most of this apple on the way home and fell asleep with it still in his hands and some unchewed apple in his mouth.

This morning, we had a wonderful breakfast of apple cider donuts and fresh fruit. Amie and Tim are wonderful hosts. If they ever invite you to their house....GO!

Tim was 'bowling' Lucas down the hall. It was hysterical.

Andrew could not get enough of this fun helmet/handlebar combo.

A little tug-of-war with Sammy:

Playing with Lucas' tool set:

Playing with REAL tools!

Reading some books together:

The boys painted the pumpkins that they picked out yesterday. They had a wonderful time.

Lucas' handprint:

The sun came out today so Tim blew some of the leaves around to dry them a little bit and get them into piles. We thought the boys would have a great time jumping in them but after two jumps, they were done.

Andrew saw this great playset and yelled, "A park!"

After lunch, the boys decorated the cookies that Amie made:

The finished product. Gorgeous.

On the way home, we stopped at the outlets. I shopped at a few stores and Andrew did this:
