Halloween 2009

Random pictures. Fall Festival at the church last night. Ben had/has pink eye, so he's sporting his nerdy glasses.

Joseph was super-cute in his hand-me-down lion costume. Tim repeated his costume from last year. I tried to talk him into something else (not sure why I did), but he said that "it still fits." It will still fit for at least a couple more years, so we'll see what happens. Carolina wanted to be a butterfly.

Joseph and Timmy came home with me a little early from trick-or-treating. I think Tim was a little worn out. Carolina continued a little longer with her dad. Timmy helped me pass out some candy. See the jack-o-lantern on the right? His name is "Carvey Hopscotch." Tim picked his first name and Carolina gave him his second name. Every time they walk by, they say, "Hi, Carvey Hopscotch."

Just a phase?

So my one child that would actually look at the camera and pose is starting to show a little bit of stubborness. As tribute to his once camera-ready grins, I've included this collage taken a couple weeks ago. Here Joseph is, so sweet and cooperative:

Still very loveable, but driving me crazy and running the other way:

Fall colors

Who doesn't love fall? Especially the colors. We have these trees that are really stunning. They change colors earlier than the rest of the area, so it's really neat.

Here is what the trees on our little street looked like Oct 4th:

And here they are Oct 13th:

Here they are a couple of years ago.

Pumpkin Patch

Wednesday we met a bunch of my family in the afternoon for a trip to the pumpkin patch. It was cold and wet, but we had a ton of fun. There were seven cousins, grandma, and two aunts and an uncle.

They have this thing called the "jumping pillow." It is huge and was Carolina's favorite.

Here are six of the cousins. At least a couple of you are a little bit familiar with the extended family, so here's the run-down:
Tim, Carolina, Katie (Jen's oldest, nearly 9), Sophia (Rick's oldest, age 3), Danny (Jen's son, age 3), and Joseph.

Carolina is helping us out in the corn maze:

Free day with the trains

We had a blast on Tuesday at the B&O Railroad Museum enjoying Free Fall Baltimore. This was a field trip for 2 of the 3 preschool co-op kids. The trains were great. The weather was awesome (unlike today!!). And the price was perfect.
