Pumpkin Fun!

Yesterday was full of pumpkin fun in our house! We started off by making pumpkin hats. The boys loved their hats! The wore them all day yesterday and then again all day today!

Isabel made a pretty adorable pumpkin

Me and my pumpkins!
Then in the evening it was time to carve our pumpkin! The boys have been looking forward to this all week long. We had a little carving kit that came with a few templates to use so the boys got to pick what we put on our pumpkin.

Eli wasn't too sure about touching the slimy stuff

Jude didn't mind it

They both had a blast!!

All the kids watched as daddy scooped out the insides

Baby Talk

Isabel is becoming quite the little talker! We can carry on a conversation for such a long time. I have been trying to get it on video fir a little while now but she quits everytime I pull out the camera. Tonight we were going back and forth for such a long time so I decided to try and get it on video with my ipod. She kept talking a little but near as much as she had been. I just love our little conversations we have!

Halloween Fun at the Campground

This weekend me and the kids headed over to the campground my sister Tracy and her family were staying at. My mom, sister Jackie, and my sister Katie and her family came too. Mike was at the Purdue game with his dad so I was glad to have all my family there to help me with the kids. The cousins had a blast playing at the playground and campsite during the day and then in the evening we all went trick or treating. The boys had a blast and Eli is already talking about going again next year!

It didn't take Isabel long to enjoy the ride as the cutest Pooh Bear EVER! Spiderman Eli with Spidergranny!

And then she was sleepy Pooh! Love her!

As all the cousins trick or treated I pushed Isabel in the stroller and after a little while put her friend Edmund in the stroller for a ride too. Isn't he cute! :-)

Thank you Tracy and Chris for letting us join you for such a fun day! And thank you Tracy, Mom, Jackie and Katie for helping out with the kids!
