Carving pumpkins!

I love Halloween and one of my favorite things about it, is carving pumpkins! On Sunday, we went to my parents house to eat homemade vegetable soup. I made a ooey gooey pumpkin cake to take too. After dinner, we carved our pumpkins to put outside our house. I will post a picture of the pumpkins at our house later. We had a great time!

Craaaaazy hair days!

For some reason when Ben wakes up from his naps, his hair is CRAAAZY! I think he rubs his head into the corners of his bed and this is what happens. I try to take pictures of Ben's crazy hair when I remember because it is so funny. I can brush it, but it doesn't help much. I think it is getting close to time for a hair cut.

Maybe we shoud dress Ben up as Elvis. My mom calls him little Einstein, so that's an idea too!

Look at me and my CRAAAAAZY hair!

I even put one of my mini hair clips in it sometimes. He is so cute and would even make a cute little girl.

And to end this posting, Ben with pretty good hair looking adorable.

Love the Pumpkin Patch!

Nana was visiting us this weekend so we decided to take her to the pumpkin patch, a Southern tradition.  We went to Burt's farm on Saturday and it was a beautiful day to go. We met our friends Bobby, Gina, and or course Jack and Emma for lunch.  Then we took the beautiful drive up to Burt's Farm to look at all the great pumpkins.  We had a great time looking at all the huge pumpkins and riding the hayride. We went last year when Ben was only a month old.  I love the fall and can't wait to go back to the pumpkin patch again.  If you enlarge the above picture, you can see Ben sticking his tongue out.  Maybe he thought those pumpkins looked tasty.

The rules which I don't see very many people following.

Jake and his best friend Emma. I think Emma is trying to get a leaf out of the tree.

What a cutie!

Which one should we get?

Jake and Emma loved running around the farm

Nana knitted a pumpkin hat for Ben. Too bad she didn't finished it before we went to Burt's, he could have worn it there. She finished it last night and it looked adorable on him.

Jake's exercise video

I don't know where Jake learned this because unfortunately I don't really exercise. Hey, maybe I could make some money off this.
