October Rewind: Pumpkin Carving

Pumpkin carving was a big hit in our house and we ended up with some great results. Charlie directed daddy as to what shapes were needed where and Eman took charge with the marker, drawing his jack-o-lantern face before his mom helped him carve it up.

Look at that concentration!

Just about done!

There's not much better than apple and pumpkin picking on a sunny fall day....

Taking a break from his apple to show me that super smile!

October Rewind: Abbott's Farm

A few weeks ago, we had a nice fall outing to Abbottt Farms where we got to visit some animals, get lost repeatedly in a corn maze, and enjoy some delicious fall treats. It was a chilly, grey day - but it was a good time!

Charlie was intrigued by the turkeys

The chickens came running expecting to be fed,
but then Charlie growled at them instead...
Sorry chickens. :-)

mmm... warm cider donuts...

Such a goof ball!!

Charlie and his little friend, Noah, were a big hit in the neighborhood while trick-or-treating in their thinga-ma-jigger last night. I have to give credit to our friend, Melissa, for coming up with the idea and making the awesome blue wigs though! We did nothing but buy a t-shirt and pair it with some red footie pajamas. They were both super cute and had a great time raking in the goodies!
