YEAH! Finally. . .

I am SO glad I FINALLY got the pictures to download to my blog! I would update this thing more often if I could get the pictures to load. Well, I know November is almost over. . .so here are the pictures from October, I know SLACKER, right?

Pumpkin Patch with mom. Grandma Jenny, cousin Nick, and Aunt Becky came too! Riding in the wheelbarrow on the way to pick pumpkins with cousin Nick. They looked too cute together, and what a fun way to travel.

Lauren's pumpkin.
Brady on the tractor. I noticed the sign after Aunt Becky put him on the tractor "keep off tractor." Well, it's a cute picture anyways, and no harm done.
Brady having fun, and Lauren with her perplexed look. She is SO expressive!
Pumpkin carving @ Grandma Jenny and Papa Greg's house.
Staples to the head after hitting it on the corner of the coffee table. He was such a brave, inquisitive boy thru the whole ordeal.

Brady and mom carved the pumpkins this year. Notice the nice bruise on his forehead from sliding head first off the ottoman, of course he did this the morning after his staples. His first Halloween program was so cute! He was exhausted though, notice the look. Brady was one of 3 Spinderman's in his class! Okay, not an original costume, but he LOVES Spiderman.
Making yummy cookies with mom. Notice Brady's scary face. I had to take his picture a couple times, he thought it was such a cool expression. Boo @ the Zoo. . .what a literal zoo! It was SO crowded. The kids had fun though, and enjoyed the few pieces of candy they got.
Petting zoo @ Gardiner Village. They loved it!
More @ Gardiner Village with a group of neighborhood friends.
Brock and kids @ the chili fest/trunk-or-treating ward party.Donut-on-a-string eating contest. Brady actually did pretty good. He was a little slow, but it stayed on the string the whole time (no hands).
Costume time. All the cousins wore their costumes so Grandma Jenny and Papa Greg could see them. Aren't they adorable?
We spent Halloween night @ Grandma Jenny and Papa Greg's house for some good eats and trick-or-treats!
Trick or Treating with Cousin Riley, notice the "cheese" grin on Lauren.
Lauren had to make a "hat" after she saw Brady put the basket on his head (notice the post before this one). Too bad it was full of peach juice! She has made quite a habit of making bowls and plates her hat, no fun for me and Brock.
Brady loves to empty all the baskets with books, diapers and toys into Lauren's bed when she wakes up from her nap.
The one photo from November! Aren't kids so fun? It's amazing how much of a mess they can make in a matter of seconds. Cheerios EVERYWHERE! You just have to laugh sometimes, like the time I was making Thanksgiving pies a few days ago and gave Lauren and Brady some of the leftover banana cream; they painted the table and their arms and legs with it. Little stinkers. . .

I can't believe October came and went and I still haven't posted a blog. It's been a crazy month! We had some fun times, and some not so fun times. At Gardner Village we saw the witches and visited the petting zoo. My birthday was fun. I got to go to dinner and a movie with my mom this month too. Boo at the zoo WAS literally a ZOO! I saw Thriller for the 1st time. Brady and Lauren loved Halloween stuff. We carved pumpkins we picked with Grandma Jenny and Becky. Cookie making and potty training. . .the list goes on and on. Brady's Halloween parade and program at preschool was so cute. We had a fun party at the church with donuts on a string and trunk or treating, and other fun stuff. We ventured out to Grandma Jenny's for some eats and treats on Halloween night. Riley even came trick or treating. Between all this fun stuff, there was some not so fun stuff. Like colds, and diarrhea and vomiting which is never fun, especially because the kids didn't know what was coming (thankfully I never got it!). Lastly the staples Brady got in his head after hitting it on the coffee table, following that up with a big goose egg the next morning as he fell head first off the ottoman. It was such a busy, CRAZY, fun month!
