Costume Sneak Peak

We did a costume rehearsal, so to speak, this morning. Actually, I wanted to make sure to get their pictures take in their costumes before we went trick-or-treating this evening with Katie and her kiddos. I know once Camden and Jake are together I'll have a hard time getting them to sit still long enough to take a picture.

This year we have an "utterly" adorable cow...

and a very spirited Raider Red who tells everyone to
"Get your guns up!" enthusiastically.

I do confess that there is a certain amount of Texas Tech brain washing going on in our house but he came up with dressing up as Raider Red all on his own. The force is strong with that one!!
We were supposed to have a coordinating Masked Rider but had a little trouble with the costume, which is why Deegan is a cow. Now, don't go making any Tech and Texas comparisons...he isn't Bevo.

Carving Pumpkins

It's pretty self explanatory...we carved pumpkins.

I wanted to get these up before it's December and I realize that I forgot to post them but don't feel especially chatty today. We broke out the stencils, carving knife and enough newspaper to cover the table to got busy decorating our pumpkins.

Lions and Tigers and Bears

We were actually more of the 'Elepants and Giraffes and Chimps' crowd since we didn't actually see any lions or tigers or bears while at the zoo. Not because they weren't there but because Deegan decided he was done with this whole zoo business and made it known that he was ready to go home. Before our departure we saw oodles of
animals, fed the giraffes, rode the carousel, played on the playground, brushed goats in the petting zoo, ate lunch and picked
out the perfect souvenirs.

Pumpkin Patch

Guess who went to the pumpkin patch this morning?
Well...can you guess?
Alright, I'll go a head and tell you that it was us!

We picked out pumpkins and posed for pictures. Like my previous post the boys 'together' pictures were no where near posing perfection and even ended in tears when Deegan decided he didn't want Camden to sit next to him. But they are memories nonetheless.

Driving Without Passengers

Camden took his truck out for a drive the other morning.

And, after getting unstuck on his first lap (he made a run a little too tight and got his wheel stuck in the grass) he was off an going. He drove up and down the side walk honking his horn.

He loves going fast and wasn't interested in slowing down so that he could give his little brother a ride. This is the fit that followed:

Tears or not poor little Deegan still didn't get a ride;
there were no passengers on this road trip.
