Hello again. I have been wanting to blog for months, but as always the task of catching up is daunting. Not to mention there just never seems to be time. But now that the big move is finally behind us it's time to get serious about it. :) I had decided I was just going to blog about a couple of really big events, like the kids' birthdays and Christmas and then just try to stay current, but then I saw pictures from lots of other things and just couldn't leave it all out. It still won't be everything, I mean I'm still skipping two whole months. But it won't be short. I apologize.
October brought with it some pretty fine fall weather in Iowa. We tried to enjoy it as much as we could. It also brought visitors! Rex, Jennifer and Quinton all came to see us which was great. It was our first time seeing Quinton since he got home from his 2 year mission to London so it was extra special to see him.
had to got to read lots of stories.
Last time they were here we took them to Kalona and they requested to go back for some more of the hot cereal from their grocery store. It was a beautiful day and we all enjoyed getting some goods from the Amish stores. Tatum loved seeing the horses and the fuzzy caterpillars on our short walk between stores.
Holiday traditions are so much more fun with the excitement of children.
I'm not even sure this picture was taken in October but that's what folder I found it in. I just thought it was a cute one. She loves to color and sure concentrates hard when she does it.
Lovely visit with the Ruggles.
Possibly one of my favorite pictures ever.
This was our first year checking out our town's pumpkin patch and we are so glad we did. They had a giant corn box for the kids to play in which they could have done for hours (I only wished they were open during the day so I could take them while Brennan was at work!). Then they had a barrel train and a bounce house and a few other climbing things that were all free for under 3. Jackpot! Somehow we only managed to get there once the whole season. :(
Love this picture of these too. Tatum sure loves Kelbie.
A pretty cute Brother and Sister if I must say so myself.
A few final playing pictures from October. It was a good month. I miss it. But I miss everything right now.
Had to document these two playing nicely if not together, then at least in close proximity.
And I will leave you with this final gem from the month. Can you say gomer baby? haha
