Everyday it is something new. I never new boys enjoy dress up every bit as much as girls do. Three days left to decide... Any suggestions?

A Real Pumpkin Patch

Usually during October, we city folks go to a pretend pumpkin patch. It is set up in the Mall parking lot, with lots of straw and giant blow up carnival type rides. There are pumpkins everywhere and all of them way over priced. The past 4 years we have gone to the parking lot pumpkin patch, snapped a few photos of the boys by pumpkins and called it a good autumn experience. This year we went back to Scott's roots. A real farm with real pumpkins still in the dirt.

During our trip to Idaho, we went to Grandview and got in touch with our inner rural selves. I probably shouldn't say "our", I should say Scott's and the boys inner rural selves.

We all had a great time. Did you know you could eat corn right off the stalk, without cooking it. It was delish.

Vance boys in there natural habitat. Don't they fit in well?

Rainy Day

Today I feel like I have deprived my children. They woke up to the first rainfall of the year and said, "Mom what's that?". On the way to Dad's work, they were very excited about the windshield wipers and as soon as we got home at 7:15am they had to go outside and walk in the rain. They were outside for an hour. We have already been through pajamas, and two pair of clothes. This is what it looks like for a child to see rain for the first time.

So maybe its been 5 years since we have clean our carpets. And you might notice, that the spot in the corner where the mattress was, is still clean. This is the before...

This is the after...

Amazing the difference a carpet cleaning will do. The $37 on the rug doctor and cleaning products were totally worth it.
