Crunchy leaves

What's the best part about Fall? Well, if you're four, then it's the crunchy leaves! :-) Sean has been asking (EVERY DAY) to play in the crunchy leaves. Finally this weekend, they were perfect! Somewhat crunchy (enough to make noise when you walk through them), but soft enough to fall into! Even Seabass got into it!

Aren't they just the cutest boys ever???

4 years / 18 months

I cannot believe that in less than one month, my sweet babies will be 4 years and 18 months respectively. Seriously, HOW is that possible? This Saturday, we went to Lake of the Woods to get their pictures taken (our photographer is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G). Sean was freezing the entire time, so not the most cooperative he's ever been, and Nathan ran the opposite way we wanted him to (belly laughing the entire way, of course). Regardless, we got some fantastic shots that I can't wait to share with you all. We decided to stop off at the play area while we were there, to let them run off a little more of that energy. (Note: it paid off... they both took great naps!)

Pumpkin Patch 2010

Last week, we picked up our nephew Kyle from school, then headed to ABC to pick our our munchkins a little early and headed to Sidney to our favorite (and cheapest!) pumpkin patch. Sean had been talking about pumpkin patches at school, so he was really excited this year. Nathan LOVED being able to run around in the wide open spaces, but could care less about me taking his picture (he has to sit still for that). Needless to say, there aren't many pictures of him!

Here is a picture of the finished products - I think it looks pretty good... what do you think?

And check out the awesome pumpkin that Jamie carved! Not too scary (per Sean's request). :-)

Lance-a-palooza 2010

Saturday, September 25th, we had our first annual Lance-a-palooza (aka, Jamie's bday party). Several years ago, our goal was to have a Cinco de Mayo party each year, but with the blessing of Nathan's birth so close to that date, realistically it just got to be too much around that time. So, we thought why not have a party in the Fall, around Jamie's party... enter Lance-a-palooza!

We had a great time with our friends, (despite the rain moving us inside) playing Wii, Rock Band and enjoying lots of good food and Margaritas!

Here are a few pictures from the fun night:
