Pumpkin Carving 2011

Saturday we carved pumpkins. Some of us felt the need to wear embalming gloves (Chloe). Some of us felt the need to go play in the other room because "that pumpkin stuff feels gross on my hands" (Dillon, the embalming gloves were way too big for him). BUT others dug right in and enjoyed every minute of it, even picking out the seeds so we could bake them (Hannah). Anyway they came out just perfect (the seeds did too. That was Darr's contribution).

 I'm not really sure what look she was going for. Her pumpkin has the biggest mouth I've ever seen.

 Dillon, Chloe and Hannah's finished pumpkins. They are in the house because of the 2 snowstorms we've had already!

Creative Sparks.....

Last Saturday we went to Creative Sparks which is a shop that sells ceramic items for you to paint. Chloe had been there before to a birthday party. The kids enjoyed it, the girls more. Dillon did a good job though. The girls each picked a two piece ice-cream cone to paint and Dillon picked an airplane. Tomorrow I go and pick up them up. We can't wait to see the finished product!

Another beautiful wedding....

Last Saturday Darr's sister, Holly got married. I don't have any pictures of the wedding but I do have a few shots of the kids before it.We were "killing time" waiting for Hannah, which seems to happen a lot. Also let me add I did notice Dillon's face was all milk BEFORE we got to church where Dillon so perfectly walked Gramie down the aisle....with a clean face.

Apple Picking.......

Back about a month ago we went apple picking. We went to a different orchard then we normally go to, just to try something different. This orchard was a bit more low keyed then the other one but was just as good. We rode on a tractor pulled wagon which was different then we had done before. Dillon of course was so excited about the tractor. After apple picking we watched some women practice barrel racing on horses. After that we went into the barn and petted some farm animals. The nice thing about this orchard was we spent less money!

Some apples were a bit sour, but most were perfect!

Even those who are only at the 38% in height could even reach the apples! Good picking Hannah!

Where's Dillon? We say that a lot.

Even Darr made a new friend.....
