Now, I love fall and it has sped right by us with all the tasks that we need to get done before winter, like the roof, and the roof, and by the way the roof! I have my canning out of the way and have started the organizing of the garage and a magical face lift of the garage. (although this kind of magic is requiring much assistance from tinkerbells muscles, and I must be the tinkerbell) Anyhow, back to fall speeding by. We finally decided to go to the pumpkin patch on sunday after church. the place we went to has tons of great things for kids to do and I just loved this farm. It is a beautiful sunny hour drive and the boys are excited about the train ride through the cherry orchard, and the wagon ride through the farm, and of course the pumpkins! We arrive with much excitement, a little chilly but we dressed for it. We walked out to the pumpkin patch, which was beautiful and only about 200 feet from where we parked. The boys got to pick out pumpkins and ride in the wagon with there little orange beauties, and we took some great photo's. Then out of a clear blue beautiful sky it suddenly sleeted, rained, and hailed along side lots of wind all at the same time! What is up with that? we had to run to the car with the boys and leave our pumkins because it was actually hurting the boys' faces. So we sat in the car with Big Mister wailing at the top of his lungs because he wanted a train ride and Little Mister is bellowing because the hail hurt his face and DW and I look at each other like what did we do? After about ten minutes it cleared up and the sun came to visit alltho even colder temps now the boys were happy to go and play. This concludes our fall festivities for 2008 and I am so sad.
Now for the scrooge. I mentioned that I am a halloween scrooge, I hate dressing up, witches and ghosts and all things scarry. However Big Mister is in a story time program and today they did have a little haloween celebration where the kids could go around and trick or treat and dress up . I didn't want My misters to be the only kids not dressed up so I tucked the scrooge away for the morning and they had a great time and looked so cute. i will post pics tommorrow since this post is becoming very long.
Have a great tuesday, christina
