Family Pictures

So last year was so crazy around this time that we skipped family pictures.  This year I looked for a photographer for 6 moths.  Either they were unreasonable expensive or they couldn't come to Wenatchee.  It was so frustrating.  Finally I found a reasonable priced photographer that I liked who came to Wenatchee but I still had to wait 4 months for her to come out.  It was totally worth it!  Our session went by so fast and was so easy.  Greysen didn't even have time to get squirly.

Tate Lost his First Tooth and other Random Cuteness

This post is kind of a random collection of pictures that just did't fit into any other post.
This is Oat at a recent trip to the temple.
Grey discovering the joy of licking beaters.
The more on the face the better!
Tate lost his first tooth.
Can you see the gap?

Look at the cute bunny!

If you know me you know that Halloween is my favorite holiday.  This may be hard for some of you to understand but that doesn't really matter.  I still love it!

Every good Halloween celebration starts with a trip to the pumpkin patch.

We were lucky this year to have our good friends the Sampsons with us.
Greysen knew right away what to do. 
Too bad he couldn't lift it.

Neither could Zoe.
Here we all are looking for the perfect squash.
Zoe, Jack
Tate, Grey and Kenzie
Cute face!
Spooky!  And cute!
Me and Zoe.
I wasn't feeling great that day due to our new little addition.
Grey caught a ride!
Next we have to carve the pumpkins
Greysen can't believe what we are asking him to do.
Tate dug right in.
Grey is still not sure.
There he goes!
Zoe too!
Even Oat got into it.
He doesn't like to get dirty.
Carving is very serious business.
Here are the masterpieces!
Tate's is the spooky tree and Oat free handed the face next to it.  Pretty amazing for a first time pumpkin carver!
Ben made the Darth Vader of course, and the one next to it was Zoe's first attempt at carving free hand.  Not bad eh!
Here we are all dressed up for trick-or treating
Can you guess what we are?
Those of you with small children probably had an easier time,
Ben and I are Phineas and Ferb.  Zoe is Candace.  Tate is Heinz Doofenshmirtz and Greysen is Agent P, or Perry the Platapus.
Halloween cake pops made a delicious Halloween craft.  To bad they make me sick to even look at now.

One last fun fall activity.

Raking leaves...


We have always loved the fall but here in Wenatchee it is so much easier to love.  The fall here is amazing!  It is warm and sunny and colorful.  Plus lots of crunchy leaves instead of soggy ones.  We love it!
