all things pumpkin

The night started out with Jack o lantern pizza.
Lauren and Parker dug right into the pumpkn carving.

Kate was a bit less enthused.

Elle was by far the least enthused.

Elle thought the inside of the pumpkin was disgusting!

Guess which pumpkin belongs to which member of our family????

Pumpkin Patch and Brown County

We went to a really great pumpkin patch for Family Home Evening last Monday. It was fun to drive out to what felt like the middle of no where Indiana and pick our own pumpkins. It was a fun little adventure.

A week earlier, I took Elle and Kate to a different pumpkin patch with friends.
The girls loved the hayride out to the pumpkin patch.

But, it was cold, very cold. And Kate got, well like Kate, and refused to pick up her pumpkin.

One of Elle's new best buds is Lyndee. She loved sitting on Lyndee's lap during the movie on farms.

Kate loved doing farm chores. Too bad this enthusiasm for chores didn't continue when we got home.

Dustin took a day off a couple of weeks ago, and we drove down to Brown County State Park. It was so beautiful there. It was a really fun family day.

Elle wanted Lauren to hold her hand almost the whole time we were there. It was so sweet.

After Parker had gone down this hill, he thought it would be fun to run back up it.

Lauren and Kate found a caterpillar.

This is the covered bridge we went through to enter the State Park.

The Dining Room molding is finished

Dustin put molding up in our dining room. He did molding around the doorway, he raised the baseboard, and he put a shelf around the room, and vertical lines around the room. I think it looks great. He did a great job!!!
This is the corner of the shelf.
This is the corner of the molding around the doorway.

We use our Dining room as a piano room.

Dustin and Elle cuddling. She loves Daddy so much!

We have tried baseball and soccer, dance and gymnastics with no true enjoyment, but Volleyball on the other hand, Lauren loves it. She is awesome at it too. And Dustin and I LOVE to watch her play.
I know this picture is blurry, but you can see the ball coming towards Lauren, #8, and she bumped it over the net. It was a great shot...Good job Lauren!!

I know I am a bit partial, but what a cute Volleyball player!!
