Happy Halloween!

A few weeks ago, we headed out to the pumpkin patch at The Country Mercantile with some friends from my MOPS group. Gabe had a blast doing all the fun activities! A little more interactive than last year when we carried him around everywhere..

Picking out a pumpkin with Dad

Hay ride back from the patch (Ask Gabe what he remembers about the pumpkin patch and all he says is "the tractor ride!")

Scaling hay bales

Straw maze

Checking out all the "wheels"

"Helping" carve pumpkins

The glorious "cheese" face

We had a fun day making an attempt at Halloween cookies, trick-or-treating at Grandma's, Aunt Vicki's and a few friends and going back at night to see Sandra and Don's fabulous Halloween decorations. Cole was a total trooper, happily accepting one nap all day long and then passing out at 6:30. Gabe was really interested in all the people coming to our door. "What are they doing? Where are they going?"

Believe it or not, this is the best picture I got of the two of them in their costumes..

After his first round of trick-or-treating

Who knew I married such a talented pumpkin carver?
