Fun Fall Activities

Can you believe it's already November?  I'm so thankful that we've really had a nice fall.  We've had plenty of fun fall activities and generally nice weather to enjoy.  How wonderful!

I'm glad several of you have made the yummy pumpkin muffins from the previous post.  I've been pumpkin crazy this fall.  I think I've gone through 4 or 5 cans of it.  I can't seem to get enough of the stuff.  Pumpkin is really good for me anyway, right?

About a week and a half ago, Jadyn and I went to another pumpkin farm.She had the day off from school and so it was fun to get out for the afternoon. Jadyn fed hay to the cows, we walked through the corn maze, and we walked around in the pumpkin field for awhile and looked at all of the pumpkins.
She posed herself like this.  :)
We decided this one was NOT a keeper.
The farm owner let us pet her kitties in the barn.  Oh, how Jadyn loved this.  The black and white is the baby and the gray one is the mom.  Hard to tell the difference, isn't it?  She said the baby was about 11 weeks old.  It was a very small momma cat.  

We had a Halloween gathering on Friday night.  We had 24 kids here and 16 moms, all from our playgroup.  What a fun time we had.  Here is part of the group.
  I got a kick out of the way Monika chose to sit while having her snacks.  
Erin, helping Nancy feed Lily. 

On Saturday, I took Jadyn to her school's carnival.  She had a good time playing games, and making little crafts, etc.  She also had her hair painted.  I loved the polka dots.  
Here she is on Sunday night, all ready for trick or treating.  She enjoyed it a lot, but she's still not a fan of any porches with scary decorations.  That's still a bit much for her.  She's all about the candy and no scary stuff.

I enjoyed the pictures. I remember when my girls were young and not in school yet, going to apple orchids during the week and just enjoying it. I love the picture of Monika and would like a copy of that and one of Erin. Have a wonderful time with your girls
