Fall Fun!!

It's such a wonderful time of year!! So many fun things to do!!

Saturday, I took a fabulous photography class with Karen Russell at memory lane, pa!! Wow, she was fantastic!! She explained everything in such an easy to understand manor!! I have been taking pictures on manual (well, aperture priority) mode since then!! I love it!!! I still have a lot to learn, but it's so fun!! Hey, I may even sit down and read my manual!

Sunday, the kids and I went to Wilcox Farms and did the kid corn maze, the hay bale maze and play area! They had a blast!! I've never gone in a corn maze without Chris and I must admit that I was a little worried if I'd be able to find my way out, but it was easy! There were only 6 check points and we got all of them but one. I let the kids start off and didn't realize that the first point was right at the beginning, so we past it and by the time we were done, they didn't want to go back in and find it! They were just busting to get onto the huge play gym!


Last night, we carved our pumpkin. The kids loved playing in the guts! We even roasted the pumpkin seeds for the first time. Mmmm, now those are yummy!!! We finished them off this afternoon!


I took the kids over to my parents in their costumes tonight. They looked so cute! I'm going to try to get a pic of them together again tomorrow. Jack will not stand next to Macy! LOL I will keep trying though and post my success!!

Macy's school is having their Halloween parade in the morning! So, Jack and I will watch that and take pictures!! They also have early dismissal and she's going to go home with her friend, Lydia, who lives 2 blocks away. Jack is having his little girlfriend over tomorrow to play too, while her mommy goes to her brothers Halloween party at school!! Chris asked him tonight if she was cute, he said "yes". LOL My little man!!

We had a few trick or treaters tonight! The kids are so excited to go out tomorrow night! We're walking around with our neighbors! We hope to get back in time to hand out some candy too!!

Have a great day!! Did ya notice I changed my music for the occasion?

Rachael, these are darling LO's.

Didn't you just love eating the pumpkin seeds. I soak mine over night in salt water. I also do that with my acorn squash seeds. They are even tastier.

I'm so jealous of you Narthaners cuz ya get all the cool fall roadside attractions and events! {pout} And you didn't help by making it so attractive, Rachael! LOL

You can just tell Jack I'm jealous of his girlfriend, too. LOL He's too dang funny with the expressions. And your Macy is a darling sweetie! I'm glad you are getting to do all these things with them, and they seem to like to do together, too. That's awesome!
