Pumpkin carving

Alex enjoying the pumpkin goo.
Christopher really got into carving his pumpkin this year.

We waited until Halloween Day to carve pumpkins so that Purple Grandma could be here with us.

Christopher's finished project, with a little help from Purple.

Alex and his pumpkin. For some reason I don't have one of Ry with hers.

Trick or Treat

Brie is a monkey with tutu( Ryann thought she needed it),Christopher is Nemo, Alex is Darth Vader,and Ryann is Alex from Wizards of Place

Christopher liked to ride in the wagon like this so that he could jump out first. I hit a bump one time and heard his candy pumpkin hit the ground. When I turned around Christopher was sitting on the sidewalk looking at me like I tried to bump him out of the wagon.

Snow in Santa Fe

We headed up to the Santa Fe mountains yesterday to do some hiking. We could see that there was snow on the top so we had to go check it out. It was very beautiful and it was surprisingly warm, 60 and sunny.

Pumpkin Patch

We found a really cool little pumpkin patch and corn maze near our home.This made me very happy because I was not sure that we would have one in NM.

We were in this maze for awhile and Christopher was having fun leading us. When we finally ended up in the pumpkin patch.

After picking our pumpkins we hopped on the wagon for a hay ride.

The kids loved climbing the bails of hay and checking out the baby farm animals.

Happy 9th birthday Alex!

Alex turned nine on Thursday. The kids had the day off so we went to lunch at Chuck E Cheese"s. This is one of Alex's favorite places.

The kids had a great time and we only lost Brie a couple of times so I call it a success.

Alex loved his new scooter from Purple, (His Grandma)!

Presents are always his favorite part. This year he wanted a fishing rod more then anything But how do you wrap a fishing rod so that he doesn't know what it it? Our solution was we made him follow a bunch of different post it's until he found it.

I think that we had a very happy nine year old by the end of the day.
