Well, we had our first snow of the year on October 29th.  Hard to believe.

Grammie and Pop were here to visit for Max's school party, he was not too pleased to be dressed up in front of everyone, but he managed.

 As you can see, Allie had a ton of fun!  HA! She may have been just as miserable as Max.
This is the best picture I have of them on Halloween. Maybe daddy got something better?

Pumpkin Patch

Ever since the field trip Max has wanted to go back to the pumpkin patch to get himself a BIG pumpkin.  The pumpkins he got on the field trip were for Daddy and Sissy.  So, we all went to the pumpkin patch at Blevin's Farm in Stewartstown, PA .  Here are a couple fun pictures from our trip.

 That little gourd turned out to be Allie's best buddy and she didn't put it down for about 3 days.

This was the best I could do to get a picture of the two of them together.  Not looking, of course, but still cuties!

Dutch Wonderland Redo

Try one was a few weeks ago and we got rained out.  Fortunately they give "Rain Tickets" so we got to go back.  We were battling sick kids and fevers all week and decided to take a day to rest on Saturday and see what happened Sunday.  Well Sunday we were fever free, the coughs and (for lack of a better word) mucus seemed to be gone or signifcantly less than it had been the days before.  The weather was BEAUTIFUL, dare I say it was around 80!  It was such a fun day.  We got to the park just as it opened, played for a few hours and went to the car to eat our lunch.  We battled a few bees at lunch and then went back for a few more rides.  By 2:00 all of us had had our fill and we were headed home by 2:30; Allie was asleep before we made it out of the parking lot.  I do believe we rode almost everything, everything we wanted to anyway. 

Allie even rode on a few things and boy was she mad when the ride stopped.  She did not want to get off.  It was so funny.  Next year she'll be able to ride most of the rides and even ride with her big brother all by themselves! 


Max fell asleep about half way home.  We all had so much fun and can't wait to go again next year!

First Field Trip

I got to be in Max's classroom last Friday, but Michael got to go on the field trip to the pumpkin patch on Wednesday.  I haven't got much out of Max except he spilled his apple juice twice and the pumpkins he got were for Daddy and Sissy.  Pictures prove he had lots of fun.  It was touch and go for a few days if he'd get to go due to him having a fever for two days and generally not feeling well, but he got up Wednesday morning, asked me to take his temperature and when I did, he asked, "Am I normal?"  Well?....HA!
