Fall Fun!!

Fun Fall Activities:

I just love school parties.  Kelsey and Kaden both had their fall parties last week.  Nachos, caramel apples, and little smokies made happy 5th graders.

"Push the pumpkin with the broom" relay game.

Pumpkin Carving:  a well loved family tradition.

One side of the finished product.  Khara and Kelsey wanted one design on one side, Kaden and Karson chose a different design for the other side.

My VeRy excited "trick-or-treaters"!!

Karson and I decorated a little pumpkin and he entered it in the Sonic contest.  He was thrilled to win 1st place, a $20 gift card.

Kaden's class party:
Pine-cone turkeys.

A fun relay game of eating a doughnut off of the rope-- no hands allowed.  As soon as it fell off, they ran back for the next person.  2nd graders loved this!!

Some of his party snacks.  Veggie/cheese turkey.

LOVE having cousins visit.  We have so much fun with The Rehfeldts and were so happy when they came and stayed a weekend with us.

The weather was perfect for lots of outdoor play.

Celebrated my grandpa's 88th birthday.  I can only dream of being that healthy when I am 88.  Still have cows, horses, a the tractor, get hay....

Mark was happy to get this nice buck Saturday.  70* and very windy is much less than ideal weather for hunting but he was able to take this one down before 7a.m.

Just a little snippet of our recent happenings..... :-)

We loved all the pictures! Clayton keeps wanting to go back to the Halloween picture - he said, "Why is Kelsey dressed up like a yucky old lady? She does NOT look like herself!" HA! :-)
