Yeah, yeah, I'm about a month late on this, but I come bearing a few cute pictures if that helps. Life has just gotten busy and I really regret not being better about blogging. I love reading back over this blog and seeing how much we've all grown as a family.
So to catch you up on all the happenings in our home...
We went to the zoo...
and squeezed the last drops of warmth out of the summer...
We went to Hershey Park with Sarah and Wayne and had a lot of fun!
One weekend we went out to Altoona and Matthew finally got to meet his great great Aunts Betty and Marie!
On the way home from there we stopped at Penn State...Matthew told us he was going to take the bus there.
We did the obligatory pumpkin patch where Matthew surprised us by going on this giant slide.
He loved helping to pick out the pumpkins this year.
Halloween was touch and go since any previous attempt at wearing his costume resulted in a monkey meltdown.
All the time I spent telling him that if he wanted candy he had to wear his costume must have made an impression because as Halloween arrived and I asked him if he was ready to wear his costume he shocked us all by saying, "yes."
Pay no attention to the lollipop in his hand. Hey, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.
So there you have it, our fall. Next week is sure to bring lots of fun and adventures as we go to the airport tomorrow to pick up Matt's brother and his family! We're so excited and can't wait to have some good family time together!
If I don't get back here before (which lets face it I won't) from our family to yours...Happy Thanksgiving!
