|Decorating pumpkins with daddy! He is the best carver ever! I will post a final picture when we actually light them on Wednesday night.|
|Fun at the Rec center on Friday night - we also went to the IMU with the Greeks on Sunday afternoon. It was a great weekend of Halloween crafts, candy, costumes, and carving!|

Elizabeth loved bringing the preschool buddy bear home! Right away she went into her room and started getting each bear all ready! She wanted a picture with her and all her bears. The bear can be a girl or a boy and she insisted on a picture with the bear dressed as a boy and a girl!

On Saturday we got to a tailgate with Grandpa and get all Hawkeyed out! We got to ride the train too, but neither my mother or I had a camera or a cool phone. This picture is from a nice lady who asked if she could tweet about my kids and if I was on twitter, which I am not. The second photo from a lady asking if she could put us on facebook. The women were both over 60. I am so not with it. But thanks to them I have a few photos!

The kids had a great time going to the pumpkin patch this year. We really like the one in Atkins, Iowa. It is a little pricey, but there is a lot to do!
Jumping on the bouncy pillow - Elizabeth's favorite activity
Riding bikes - David's favorite activity
Riding around in barrels while a tractor pulled them
Going on a hayrack ride - mommy's favorite - It was a BEAUTIFUL day!
My two not-so-little-anymore pumpkins!
A picture with Daddy in it -- that is a feat!!!

In September Grandpa Herman got to come from Grandparents Day. Elizabeth made cookies and wrote Grandpa a note inviting him to come. She was her usual quiet self, but I know she was thrilled to have her Grandpa there! Afterward, I picked them up and got to take Grandpa out for lunch! It was a special day. I don't ever remember when it is Grandparent's Day though without preschool's help!
Elizabeth got to take her first field trip of the year. She enjoys riding on the bus and enjoyed the hike that they took. I wished I could go with her, like I did last year, but working in the mornings this year doesn't allow me to get in on any of the fun preschool outings! Next year, I can't wait to volunteer weekly in her class in kindergarten.
