Halloween 2011

We really enjoy Halloween costumes.  We think about it for months and then on October 1st the kids tell me their choice and no changes are allowed.  (Joe tried to tell me this morning that he wanted to do be yoda, but I reminded him of the rules).  I made the watermelon costume for Rosemary and Tim's dog costume (glad he liked it).

The rain let up for trick-or-treating and we had a great time.  So different than our old neighborhood where all the kids from our part of the county got dropped off.

Pumpkin Patch

Mike's Farm in Beulaville, NC.  We had been a few years ago when Tim was our only child (five years ago!).  Times have changed.  For the Farm too.  There were throngs of people there.  Lines everywhere and the parking lot completely full.  We're gladly we went though.  Beautiful weather and the kids now have pumpkins!

Field trip

Carolina is part of a small home-based preschool this year. Three mornings a week. We joined her class for a field trip to the science museum week before last. They had been learning about dinosaurs, so we walked the dinosaur trail and dug for fossils.

I think it's about time we cut his hair!

Last Weekend: Burnsville, NC

It was so nice to have a weekend away! We enjoyed some chilly weather in the mountains of North Carolina.  The views were great (no pics of those though).  Ben's uncle's cabin is very homey and it was a much needed getaway.
