On Sunday we went to a local pumpkin patch.
Sam just started saying his name for the first time last week. He is really starting to pick up on words and improving on his vocabulary.
I had a parent-teacher conference last week for Ben's preschool. Ben's teacher, Ms Renee, said Ben is an excellent student. All the kids (about 8-9 and only 3 are girls) get along well. Ben has a great memory and always does a great job at talking about stories they read. He has improved on his coloring and writing skills.
Here we are with our pumpkin Ben picked out.
Ben and Mom testing out our deer hunting skills.

We took Grandma to the zoo to see all of the Halloween decorations.
The weekend before Grandma came to visit we all took a walk in the woods to enjoy the beautiful fall weather.
The boys are in front of the sign of the park we went to called the Res.
Buckets of pizza dough. Dave made all of this for our church youth group fundraiser. They ended up making 70 pizzas.
Ben and Sam waiting for Grandma at the airport.
We had our annual chili and pie bake off at church. I made this peanut butter pie and came in 3rd place.
After we dropped Grandma off at the South Bend Airport, we decided to check out the Military Memorial Park next to the airport.
The boys had fun running around but were disappointed that they couldn't climb on anything.
Then we went to the park by the zoo to hang out for awhile.
This is supposed to be a brotherly hug but Sam didn't want that.
Playing pirates at the park.
Thanks Grandma for coming to visit and helping out. See you soon!
