A month full of birthdays and fall fun...

I think October is probably one of the busiest months of the year for us.  Not only do we have 3 birthdays but we also have to cram in the last of the season canning, garden clean-up, and all of the fall festivities we can manage.  I love October.  I love single thing about it. Gabe is at such a fun age right now because he looks forward to our traditions as much as I do. 

Here are some of my favorite photos from the month so far. The first is a picture of my brother waiting to give Karisa flowers for homecoming.  She was voted Homecoming princess for her Freshman class.

Karisa and her mom.

Look at this amazing picture.  Henry was feeding Ruby ice cream at Gabe's birthday party. Aww, twin love.

Our big 8 year old with his ice cream cake.  His special request this year. 

This picture of Gabe was taken at Drapers in the apple orchard with my cell phone camera.  Can you believe I forgot my memory card in my big camera?  Man, I can be such a blonde sometimes.  Thank goodness they turned out pretty well.

Yesterday we went to the Pumpkin Patch in Terrebonne.  The theme of the corn maize was Star Wars this year which is right up Gabe's alley.  His cousin Karl got him hooked on Star Wars and the maize was awesome.  You go through the space ship to get to the maize entrance.

Umm, Dave may be a good navigator in the woods but he doesn't follow maps well. Ha-ha.

Look who we found in the maize!!

Dave was pretty happy that Gabe made it to the top of the climbing wall to pose with the Oregon Ducks flag.  Poor little Gabe is a Beavers fan and wasn't too happy that he had to climb the Ducks side of the wall!

Shooting the pumpking cannon...

Finding the perfect pumpkin and no wheel barrows to be found anywhere...

Thanks for letting me share and I hope you are enjoying fall as much as I am!!
