Fall fun with leaves

We have lots of trees in our front and backyards, and those require a lot of pick up during this time of year.  Ellie and Tommy have a blast helping Mikey with the leaves.

Wanting to pick Tom up to help him put the leaves in the trash.

You can barely see them.

Fun with the blower.

Tommy got in on the action.
Now...all the fun with leaves didn't come without a price...Ellie's eyes hurt from all the "leaf dust".  So she "needed" a double eye pack for her eyes to feel better.

Pumpkin Patch Trip #2

This time we went on an outing with Ellie and Tommy's school.  It was a great afternoon, lots of friends around us as we took Deanna Rose Farmstead by storm.

Trip to the Pumpkin Patch #1

We took the kids out the a pumpkin patch in Liberty, MO with plenty of fun stuff to do...fun for the whole family.

Standing tall - 3.5 feet for our favorite 4 year old.  We did make Tommy stand up and he was 2.5 feet.

Hey Buddy!  On the hayride to pick out pumpkins.

Tommy was pretty sure he needed a green pumpkin.

What can we say, the green pumpkin was a hit!

Fun Outing at the Park

Took some good shots of Ellie and Tommy playing together at the park.

A Fall Football Game

A couple of weeks ago, we headed to a KU football game.  We sat on the hill and watched the game, and had some pre-game fun with some friends.
