October 2014

In October, we visited the pumpkin patch several times, had our apartment flood (suuuper fun), I volunteered in Owen's class a couple times, and we did lots of Halloween events. I think October is my favorite month... the weather is perfect and there are always tons of family activities and fun places to go. 

A sunny pumpkin patch day.

Our local pumpkin patch has a giant corn pit that's super fun... except for apparently, when you go on the first day of the season as we did, the corn is still full of dust and dirt. These kids were filthy when they got out - completely gray. It looked like I had dumped out our vacuum canister over them. It was so bad.

So dirty!

Owen's eyebrows and eyelashes have disappeared under the dirt.

Kiddie corn maze!

Our family room flooded from a broken toilet upstairs. We had to move all the furniture out before our carpet was replaced, which gave us lots of room for swordfights!

Even Jack got in on the action!

I volunteered to count laps at Owen's Fun Run. I loved watching this skinny little guy prance around the course. He never stops moving. :)

All done and sweaty!

Nora and Jack did not particularly like the Fun Run. 

Hooray for new carpet!

My mom and Owen and Nora planted tons and tons of pumpkins in the spring. We had a pumpkin party with all the cousins to harvest and decorate pumpkins.

Painting pumpkins! Yes, I always make my children paint naked.
