We carved pumpkins tonight for FHE. Well, Jon and Olivia did, anyway, I don't think Max and Molly are quite old enough for knives, and when I cut the top off of mine, it was green and moldy inside! I don't think the farm sold me a very fresh pumpkin! It was fun, and messy, and I can smell the seeds roasting in the oven right now...........

We can't get enough of these fun farms. We visited this one close to our home with Kristen, Bella, and Moses. We each picked a unique pumpkin, and stayed until it got dark! The weather was beautiful, and what more can I say about that fresh farm air??? It's good for the soul!

We had a fun family night on Monday! We took a little drive out into the country where a local farm turns their wooded property into a fun trail for Halloween. We saw lots of scary witches, ghosts and goblins! It was pretty dark, so we didn't get too many pictures, but it was a fun evening with great friends and perfect weather!

Molly is so into bubbles (bubbos, as she calls them!). We went to Target the other night and I bought her this little no-spill bubble toy and she will not put it down. It has gone everywhere with us, and she even falls asleep with it in her little hand! The best part about it is that she can really blow bubbles! She is really good at it! Max got one too, but, try as he does, he only blows his bangs up!

Yesterday Olivia's school did a Jog-a-thon, where the kids collected pledges for their school (just the first of many fundraisers that, annoying though they may be, make her school district the best in the area) and then ran, jogged, or skipped as many times as they could around the field in thirty minutes. I worked the water station, and it was so fun to watch these first and second graders' determination. They were all tired by the end, but you could tell they all felt good about themselves for finishing and having fun running together as friends, parents, and classmates. Olivia started with such a bang, running her hardest, that she developed a stitch in her side that she couldn't get rid of until the end, but I am proud to report that she ran 10 laps, and never quit moving, despite her pain! Good job, Olivia!

We took a trip to a local farm to see the new baby goats! The kids had so much fun feeding the goats and having a picnic on a very beautiful autumn day! Fun friends, warm weather, and farm animals: a winning combination. And, we got some yummy produce for dinner.

Olivia finally got to celebrate her birthday with her friends. She had three who couldn't make it at the last minute, but she had so much fun with those who came. We have decided that bigger is definately not better. We took these four little girls bowling, and then headed next door to the pizza place. Someone should have warned me about the energy that six and seven year old girls have!
