Construction Pumpkin

Meet construction man pumpkin.
Hunter had to decorate a pumpkin for his school's fall festival and this is what he came up with. I was very proud of him because he came up with the idea by himself and mom and dad helped him decorate it. We were supposed to incorporate something made out of cotton so the yarn hair is the cotton. K5 is studying about cotton this month.

Finding Joy in sad times

We lost our six year old Dachshund, Haley this past Wednesday to a snake bite. It has been a really hard time for us, she was part of our family and the kids LOVED her so much. Haley was a special dog, she never bothered anything(but maybe a squirrel) she followed my kids around like she was their mother. Everyone that met her instantly fell in love with her! I could go on and on about her!

Very truly,I tell you,you will weep and mourn,but you will rejoice;you will have pain,but your pain will turn into joy. John 16:20

This verse is special to me because we have found joy in remembering how great Haley was but we were also blessed to find an 8 week old dachshund that's looks just like her. We knew we wanted another one because they are such great dogs and this has really helped the kids and brought us so much joy. We will love her very much and she will be a part of our family just like Haley was. She will in no way replace Haley, but remind us of put great times with her. Haley will always be in our hearts.

This is Honey!

Pumpkin Patch

We took the kids to a local pumpkin patch Saturday, the weather was great and we all had alot of fun.
They had a hayride, pony rides, jump houses,petting zoo, and lots more for the kids to do.
Harpers favorite was the pony ride.
The kids had alot of fun picking out their pumpkins!

 Nana and Paw Paw went with us too

After picking out the pumpkins we got back on the hayride and then the kids got to play in a big pile of hay

 our nephew Braden came along too.

They loved the animals and the donkey even had a cute little baby!

We all had a really great time!

Hunter went to the hunting club on Saturday with my dad and since he is out of school tomorrow for columbus day he is still at my parents. Harper and I have played alot of baby dolls and read books, all the fun girl stuff! Next weekend we are going to the pumpkin patch! I can't wait!

Fall Fun

We have really been enjoying the cooler weather here in Alabama, it been in the mid 70's  and was even in the upper 60's this past weekend. We have had some birthday parties to attend lately so the kids always enjoy that. Hunter is doing great in school and making straight A's so far..we are SO proud of him. Lets see we are planning to visit the pumpkin patch later this month and do our usual trick or treating at Tannehill State Park.

 Owen the birthday boy

Hunter didn't make the party because he was at the hunting club with my dad, if you know my dad then you know he LIVES for hunting season and the fact that Hunter shows any bit of interest just makes him love it even more! Oh and Mike and his Dad also hunt so I guess you know what Hunter will be up to this Fall/Winter.
