Pumpkin Patch

This weekend we had tons of fun going to the pumpkin patch. It was a beautiful (even if it was windy) fall day. We started off with a hayride.
Picked pumpkins.
Crawled in the hay tunnel.
And posed as Halloween characters.
Kevin and Avery even tried "pumpkin chucking".
Here we all are, even if some of us are little less enthused than others.
So, after purchasing about 45 pounds of pumpkin, I suppose we are ready for fall. Enjoy!
PS) On another note, Claire has just started smiling (and mostly at Mommy)! I am trying to capture it on camera and will post it as soon as I do.

No, Alyssa, I am not still pregnant.

This post is for my mom and my friend Alyssa who have ever so "gently" been reminding me that anyone who is looking at this blog would still think I am pregnant. I am not, in fact, pregnant any longer. We now have a fantastic 1 month old and are adjusting to life as a family of 4.

The last belly picture...

And then we met...

She is a sweet, precious girl who has stolen our hearts. Even her big sister is a fan of her. Below are some of her 1 month old pictures. Time is flying by!

Finally, here is a special picture of 4 generations of ladies in our family. L-R: Avery, Patty (my mom), Etta (my grandmother), me, Doris (Kevin's grandma), Claire, Sandra (Kevin's mom). My mom is holding Avery because they share a middle name and Sandra is holding Claire because they share a middle name. What special people make up our families!
