Treasure Hunting

We took the kids out treasure hunting. Of course Brendan was the main man in control of where we were going.
We found a crazy amount of grass hoppers. Madelyn loved watching them hop everywhere we went. We found this hidden in the woods as we were walking and of course the kids & Brian had to go check it out.
It took us a while but we finally found the treasure. It was dug into the ground with a log on it, very tricky. Here are the kids with Daddy showing off their treasure. Madelyn got a dinosaur toy while Brendan picked a pen.

And finally in case you did hear we have had our first official snow fall on Nov. 10th. Mojo had a blast & Brian told me when he dropped Brendan off at school all the boys where trying to throw snow balls at each other. It only lasted for the day and stayed a bit longer in the shady areas.

Pumpkin Guts

Pumpkin carving time! I don't know how he did it but I ended up having to buy & carve the pumpkins all by myself this year. Thank goodness I had my two helpers to help me out. Madelyn and I bought the pumpkins while Brendan was at school & then brought them inside to hopefully warm up alittle (which it didn't). After we came back from going to Brendan's school for 'Trunk or Treat' we started cutting them up.
Here are the kids helping me out.....
They both did a great job helping to clean out the inside of the pumpkins.
After all the pumpkins were cleaned out & washed I was left to carve out the faces. Snow White for Madelyn.
Darth Vader for Brendan. While I was carving the kids were watching a movie upstairs. Madelyn even fell asleep.

Apple Orchard

Back in September we went camping with my woman's group. And on that Saturday we went out to the Apple Orchard again to pick some apples. Here are some of the photos from that day.

Brendan loved the tractor ride. Madelyn & Brendan picking some apples.
I think Madelyn ate as many as she pickedAnd of course they had a moon bounce course that Brendan wanted to go on. He even got air born on one of the times down the slide.Back at camp enjoying more apples.

Here are some soccer photos from this past Fall season.
Brendan has really improved on handling the ball and keeping ahead of the other kids.
