We love FALL!!

I absolutely LOVE fall! The crisp feel in the air, hayrides, and campfire.

We also love going to the Pumpkin Patch to pick out that perfect pumpkin to take home.

We were lucky that we squeezed in all the fun before the big fat raindrops began to fall

Right before Halloween we bring in the pumpkins for carving. The kids draw their faces on a piece of paper and then Papaw and Daddy duplicate it onto the pumpkins. This year, Papaw took the traditional route using a knife and Daddy....well, he decided that was too slow. He busted out the power tools!

Gauge has a notorious week stomach and this year proved to be no different. He was happy to dig out the guts.....as long as none of it touched his skin!

Great job kiddos!

Every Halloween the kids Trick or Treat with their cousins. As they grow up, our group gets smaller and smaller.

This year our church planned a Truck or Treat. It was a great time and we didn't let the rain dampen our fun!

GOAL.......Soccer Season 2012

After taking a season off, Gracie decided to give soccer another try. This year was particularly exciting because they kids got to play on the same team. We enjoyed that rare opportunity to get to watch them both at the same time.

What a fun an exciting season!

Grace jumped back into things like she never missed a beat....and Gauge played with bravery. He wasn't intimidated at all!

and in true Gauge (ham) fashion....he would also take time to give us a thumbs up or some other silly antic during play.
