Wow, it’s been another busy time for us. On the 13th Jason and Sally had a Harvest party. There was a pig roast and everyone brought a dish to pass. They had bowling which you were playing in the first pic here. They also had pumpkin carving, a treasure dig in piles of hay, a bean bag toss into a pumpkin among the swing sets, and basketball hoops set up in the barn. Everyone brought treats to put in the trunks of their car, along with decorating it, and then all of the kids got to go trick or treating as well. It was such a great time:) And you took a great picture with Dilly – it is below.

On Saturday we took you and Grace to the Country Pumpkin. The weather wasn’t very nice – it would have been the perfect day if it wouldn’t have been so windy. But, we did get to pet some baby goats, a baby cow, some pigs and a turkey. We also took you and Grace for a hay ride, that was actually a lot of fun. Unfortunately Grace wasn’t feeling too well, but she toughed it out. They had a corn maze that you both went through together 4 times! You both had such a goood time. They do a great job of decorating – had to take a picture of the two of you in front of the spider:)

Then of course yesterday was Trick or Treating. Every year we go by Nana’s so we can go with all of the kids. This year you went as a fairy and looked adorable, but when don’t you? The weather wasn’t too bad – a little cool but at least the sun was shining. I didn’t see you a lot of the time. Your sister was pretty pokey so I hung back with her and you actually ended up going with Cari and Schmidty a lot of the time. After we were done we headed down by Auntie Maybe (Mary Mellberg) for some treats and just to visit. We also headed to Auntie Tootsie – you are her little Sunday Dream (that is the Indian name

that you were given by her). It is always so good to see her and it has been way too long. Other than that, not too much else is new. You are growing and are such a joy most of the time. You love to dance and you and your sister love the show Super Why. It is really cute and teaches you both to read, so I can’t complain. You are both getting very excited for Christmas and want to start making lists so I am sure that we will start that soon too. Gotta go for now, but love you very much and will write again soon!
