We got to go to the pumpkin patch again Halloween morning, with Grammy, Aunt Brianna, Laura Anne, and Caleb. It was wicked hot out - Jacksonville tied the record high of 86 that day - so we weren't out there too terribly long. Also, in case you weren't aware, a pumpkin patch that smelled just fine one day won't necessarily smell sweet three weeks later. FYI.

These cute boys forgot they were still holding hands for a while

Honestly, the best pic I got of all of them at once

Then we spent the evening at Nana's and Papa's house. We celebrated Papa's birthday a little with dinner, then dressed up and headed out for treats! The boys and Mady had a great time. They were a little nervous about the whole process, but once they got it down at the first or second house, they were frantic to get to another one. It went really well when the older kids weren't barging in front of ours and practically pushing them over.

It was great fun sorting through their stash afterwards, and Baby Bear got a little buggy after she worked her way through the wrapper of a Tootsie Roll Pop and sucked it for a while.

I need to find the picture of me as a tot, in my halloween costume, posed just this way. Pretty similar!

Ready to go!

Pretty excited to find out what this whole thing's about... the stash!


  1. Aw. What cute little pirates. :)

  2. Craziest Looking Pirates Ever!!!

    The pic with Anna at the pumpkin patch laying on the straw...Priceless.

  3. Oh I forgot to mention that when Laura Anne saw the picture of Anna in front of her and Caleb, she said, "aw! it's Anna! And my legs and Caleb's legs!"
