Yay, fall is finally here! This week we have finally busted out the long sleeves, the thick blankets, and turned the heater on in the car in the morning. We have loved the nice weather, and celebrated Veteran's Day outdoors, fishing at the lake. (I should say Tommy fished, and I fished for some good pictures!) You can see what we both caught below :)

Waiting for those fish to bite...

Woo-hoo! A stinky catfish.



I think Roman had had enough of being my photography target!

My cute boys

He has found his feet! They are better than any toy, and I love it because they can't be dropped!


Happy Halloween!

Roman and Gunner, the furry forest friends
We went to a Halloween carnival in Brie and Jason's neighborhood the night before Halloween. They had a lot of fun stuff for the kids, including a petting zoo. The kids loved it... and so did Tommy! I think he was the only adult in there, because he had decided he needed to catch that shy little potbelly pig and make it be a little friendlier. After chasing it for a few minutes, we all hear a high-pitched squeal- mission accomplished. Poor little pig!

Rome's first trip to the cabin! Of course we had to take him to the swing

"Is it just me, or does this ravine look deeper every time?"


Tommy's fire department put on a community night, and it was a lot of fun! In case you don't recognize the guy in the picture, it is the famous Scruffy the Clown. I was always a little creeped out by clowns, but the kids there loved him! There were a few that came up and asked to get their picture taken with him. Too funny! (and yes, he did the make-up himself, pretty impressive!)

Nice height!

Oh my, did I mention my little sweetheart has turned into a hair-twirling, thumb-sucking baby? So cute, but I'm not looking forward to breaking that habit!
