October FUN!

 October was full of fun!  Pumpkin patch, playing outside, Halloween and trick-or-treating...and then it was done! 

We've settled into a routine at home with Oliver in school all day--after lunch every day, Lily watches "Caillou".  It's one of her favorites!  (Although, now that I look....this show is NOT Caillou...)

We played in the leaves one afternoon--the weather this month was BEAUTIFUL!

The boys built and flew an airplane...

No fall is ever complete without a trip to the Pumpkin Patch!  And this year, while Joel and the older two went through a (really long) corn maize, Brahm and I picked pumpkins.

A first this year was the Walton Rural Life Center Halloween Parade, which I got to watch. Oliver wanted to be an astronaut, and he took the initiative to create most of his costume (with some help, of course!)

I also got to go help with his party at school that day--we made mummies!  And when I got into the room, I found these notes on Oliver's desk that he had written.  Apparently, just like at home, he writes notes all day long!  (Pretend the notes are turned the right way...they read, "Life Cycle of a Pumpkin" and "I am a good listener!")

Finally, trick-or-treating!  We LOVE our neighborhood and had such a great time walking around and visiting with neighbors (while filling baskets pretty full of candy!) Such sweet memories!

Looks like Brahm is about to fall over in the last picture! Hope you caught him! October went by so fast didn't it?

Can't believe Brahm was WALKING around out in the yard today. They grow up so darned fast.
The Smith kiddos are the cutest kids in the neighborhood!!
