 The weather was in the mid 50's Friday and we decided to take advantage of it! Our yard went from no leaves to completely covered in leaves in one day. Which is random, because we do not have a single tree in our front yard.  I told the kids we could make a leaf pile and go to town. Unfortunately,after doing some investigating I learned our rake is still at our old house. I panicked a little bit, I was not looking forward to breaking Lincoln's heart and canceling our "leaf pile" plans. So, we made the best of it and took advantage of the leaves naturally piled up in front of our garage door. Whatever works! 
This chick is not into smiling. She is always so serious. :)

When they hug, Hazel pats his back the whole time. It is the CUTEST thing I have ever seen. :) 

Lincoln insists his zippers be zipped up all the way to the top.

We had a great Halloween this year. The kids LOVED it! I knew Lincoln would love it, but I could not believe how much Hazel loved it! I thought she would be too young to really care! But, she walked up to every door and took as much candy as they would let her. Which was a lot, because every one insisted she take us much as she wanted. At one point, she tried to take the whole candy bowl. If I would not have intervened they probably would have gave it to her.  Lincoln always made it to the door before her and pretty soon I heard him asking for a second piece of candy for his  little sister! What a sneaky boy! So sad October is over, but bring on November! 

 We took a short visit to the pumpkin patch earlier in the month.
