Halloween 2014

We had such a fun night with our two little guys.  To watch as they squealed and laughed and ran up and down the side walk together is one of the greatest treasures in being a parent.  To observe them become their character and the innocence in the simple task of saying hi and bye and trick or treat to every one we met - it was truly priceless.  Evenings like this are way more than candy and treats - it was about fun, joy, family, friends, crisp air, and a fall evening of together!
Happy Halloween from our Superman and Little Lion.

We began our evening by carving our pumpkin... and eating dinner at the same time.

 finished product - David was proud.
 We added some glow paint
 And took him outside
 Next up - time to put on our costumes - our Superman and Little Lion!


Off to Trick-or-Treat
Adam loves dogs this Halloween just as David did at 17 months on Halloween 


 Time to sort the loot!

 This lion was sneaky and opened his candy without anyone noticing...
 David's first time to try out a piece of gum  - he decided it was good and surprise he really did not swallow it!
 Then we went down to visit Cousins and Mimi and Grandpa Ed and Aunt Amy!

 Hannah and Patrick wanted Adam's snack!

 A little dancing in the cult-ta-sac
 Happy Halloween!

Preschool Fall Festival

This morning David had a fall festival at school.  For the first hour of the day the classes rotated through each classroom and the moms ran the booths.  Angie was actually able to volunteer this morning.  She was in charge of the Mummy Wrap - wrapping kids in toilet paper is not an easy task.
There are not many pictures of David because Angie was busy, but here are a few of our little guy enjoying school.  So thankful for Council Oak Preschool!

Adam's First Haircut

We finally decided Adam's hair had become wild enough and it was time for his first haircut. 
After church this morning we drove straight to Pigtails and Crewcuts hoping to get there before it was crowded.
Adam likes to go when David gets his hair cut so he was familiar with the procedures.  But he had not had a morning nap nor had he had a great morning in Sunday School.  So we were not sure how this experience for Adam would go.
We only had to wait about 10 minutes and Adam and David colored and played with the train table.  After that David got his haircut first and then Adam....
waiting for his turn...

 He did not like his "cape" - so off it came
 Happy as can be!

 Big brother patiently watching and waiting...
 We thought those curls would go away - but no- they are curlier than ever!

Sweet Berry Farm - 2014

 We had a very busy Saturday planned today.  We have been planning to go to the pumpkin patch, but the weather and out of town plans kept us having to wait until the weekend before Halloween to make it.  So, expecting a crowd and needing to be back in Round Rock at 2:00 for a birthday party we headed to Marble Falls early this morning.  We arrived at Sweet Berry Farm just a little before 9:00 and that was perfect!
Our first activity was the horse rides.  This is usually a long wait, but this morning the horses were waiting on us.  This gave us a little more time to pet and talk to them...

 Adam saying - giddie up

Then it was time to Bounce!
 Next stop the Corn Maze

 We found the bell!

 A little time to enjoy the view...

 Before the Hayride!

 David could not get enough of this tractor!
or this tractor!
 Adam could not get enough of this cat...

 Until it scratched him:(
Last activity for us - the train!

  Mama requested a lot of pumpkin pictures!

 These baby curls will be gone soon -

 David has been in this every year since he was 5 months old!


 Finally two smiles - the shot Mama wanted!
 And of course a family picture is always a request as well.
 These two boys were just told we were going to get homemade ice cream!
 Homemade strawberry popsicle made with berries from the farm and homemade vanilla ice-cream!
 Sweet brothers sharing!

A great day at the patch!
