Sunday Snapshot~ This is embarassing.....

so i've been a little lazy and haven't been the greatest at keepin' up with the blog
but i gotta get these in or i just won't be a happy mama. because this has become my scrapbook ya know and there's no leavin' out fall of 2011. since turkey day is fast approaching i'm just about outta time-
so here goes
we made "acorns"
then at some point we went to the renaissance festival where the boys got to throw tomatoes at some peasant in the stocks

then they shot some arrows.

the only thing the First Lady wanted to do was ride the elephant...

so she did.
{isn't she beautiful?}

with her two brothers in tow

than some other weekend we did our annual pumpkin patch tour....4 in one day that is

i realize this is a random shot but what you have to know is that our Second hiding there in the middle was at the apple sampling table so many times that I think they were ready to tell him to buy a bag already. every time we turned around there he was, reveling in his honeycrisp heaven

then it was off to pick some pumpkins and gourds

here we are inside an old silo renovated into a theater with a big ol' flat screen and a movie about spookly the pumpkin

throwing in a picture of dad....why there you are honey! always nice to see you. where is he this time you ask? Australia again, and this time hobnobbing with john travolta and his illegally parked airplane that was blocking the plane he was due to inspect. in the last 6 months his work travels have allowed a few exciting encounters- like staying in the same hotel as justin beiber, talking to ed asner at the baggage claim, and watching taylor swift shoot a video in the airport as he's waiting to board. me? well i got to see the UPS guy yesterday. no sarcasm intended.

the straw maze. Lil' Lady couldn't quite figure out why this was considered entertainment

so big brother rescued her

the older ones seemed to enjoy it though

back at the farm we carved those pumpkins while the Lil' Lady took notes on the circumference of each one
remember, a pen and pad are her comfort objects

mmmmm, i wish this one was scratch and sniff. i love the smell of pumpkin guts

halloween night and an extra child who happens to not be ours, for once

this is what you see while trick or treating in minnesota. i mean come on, it's only october. sheesh
Lil' Lady did an entire street before succumbing to the stroller and some treat sampling
please don't let the following photos frighten you....

she i was in control the entire time

so there you go.

Fall 2011!


  1. What a busy fall. Those acorns look awesome. I loved those comments about your hubby's job. Sounds like its time for the whole family to go on a field trip with the hubby when he gets to see all those famous folks.

  2. the acorns like yummy!!

    looks like y'all have been up to a lot!! :)
