Harvest Festival

We made our rounds at Harvest Festival this year. The kids had a blast and as always raked in a ton of candy. I really don't like the idea of their bags full of yummy candy just sitting on the kitchen counter all day.....oh temptation.

Captain Rex, Jango Fett, and the cutest Tinkerbell you've ever seen

Oh man...she is so beautiful. I can't tell you how many people told me that tonight. I tell her all the time that "God made her SO beautiful."

Bible Character Night

At Awana Cubbies, it was Dress like a Bible Character Night. When I asked Payton who he wanted to be, he immediately answered "David!" So, we opted for no sling shot :) and just the bag full of rocks. He was happy. Maylee Grace wanted to be a princess. We looked through her Princess Bible to see who might be wearing a purple dress, because she already had a purple princess dress. We found Hannah! So, we talked about who Hannah was and how she prayed and prayed that God would give her a baby in her tummy. I am quite partial to the story of Hannah. So here is my David and Hannah....and of course, baby Samuel.

Pumpkin Patch

We went to gather our pumpkins at the pumpkin patch with our friends. It was COLD! We had lots of fun playing in the western town, zooming down the big pipe slides and seeing the animals.

Maylee Grace admiring her pumpkin. She spotted this little guy and said, "Mom, I want this one. It's beautiful." :)

The REALLY awesome and amazingly cool moms that took their kids to the pumpkin patch. What blessed kids they must have!

Taking Flight

Matt and Camden got to go for a plane ride last week! A friend of ours from church is a pilot and offered to take them for a ride. They flew right over our house and the little kids and I went out back to wave.

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Albuquerque

It's Balloon Fiesta Week! We've lived here for 10 years now and it never gets old! My sister and her family were here to enjoy the balloons for the first weekend. We had lots of fun this morning. The best thing is we get to go several more times before the week is done!
