Halloween was lots of fun this year with Elijah. He dressed up as a monkey again. The costume still fit, barely.  

Elijah next to his pumpkin. He carved it with Grandma Janet.

Little Oliver hung out with Grandma in the Moby. He basically slept though the fun.

Our little monkey.

Knock, Knock, Knock.



Backyard Harvest

This spring we planted a bunch of vegetables in a garden in our backyard. We were excited about all of the delicious, organic vegetables we would enjoy. Apparently, the chipmunks were too. For the majority of the summer they ate the flowers before they could turn into vegetables. The tomatoes never had a chance to turn green before being devoured. It was very very sad. Toward the end of the season, a few things managed to survive the chipmunks. This was the final harvest before the weather turned. We picked off all of the tomatoes green and let them ripen in the window.

You can see the scratch marks on the eggplants where the chipmunks tried desperately to take a bite.

They also devoured our pumpkin on Halloween. Not cool Alvin, not cool.

Pumpkin Patch

We headed to the pumpkin patch in October for our second annual trip with the Fulkerson-Smith’s.  This year we stay much closer to home.

Family photo! Oliver slept through the whole thing!

The boys rode the train with Aaron & Brett.


The boys are always willing to hug on command. It’s adorable.

Playing in the hay.

Jackson climbed up a huge slide all by himself! The kid has no fear!

Bounce house!
