Cutie Pie

I managed to get this shot of Char this afternoon while she ate her snack.  
Couldn't you just eat her up?!?

Hello, Jack O'Lantern

Well, Dada was really hoping for another pumpkin carving session like he had last year with Max.  Last year, Max was really into the process and was pretty much glued to Dada's side through the whole thing.  This year not so much.
So, Dada had a not so much fun time cleaning out and carving all 5 pumpkins.  Behold:

At least the kids consented to posing with Dada by the pumpkins!

Howdy Y'all

Last week Dada brought a special present home for Max:

No, not the planes.

Max really enjoyed wearing his new hat while he sat playing that day.  Now it sits in the toy bin.  What can I say?  He's not really a hat kind of kid.

The Punkin Patch!

Last week we went to the local farm to climb on bales of hay and pick out some pumpkins.  It was a perfect day for it - sunny and crisp.
Here is Max climbing on the 'Hay Pyramid':
Char the eater-girl had to have an additional snack while we were out there:
Some kids from Max's class (including Charlie) singing a song:

Since we have ended up with many pumpkins here this year (the subject of a post yet to come), I cooked a small one up and made pumpkin bars this weekend.  Yummy Fall cooking!!!

Don't Be Such A Square

Apparently there is more than one function for crayons:

I never knew.  Pretty cool, Max!

Be Cool.

The other day Dada dressed Char to go outside.  The result:

You stay cool, y'hear?

The whole reason the extension ladder was out was so Dada could get up on the roof to add some much needed finish trim to the outsides of Max's and Charlie's bedroom windows.  After getting nailed in the head with a falling chestnut, Dada got out his hard hat.  Who can blame him?

Dada, workin':
Dada, workin' it:
Nice overalls.

This Isn't A Toy?!?

Kids are so funny.
Check out the great play structure in the background with the cool yellow slide and swings.  What is it that Max and Charlie choose to play on?  The extension ladder that Dada has temporarily set on the ground.

Well, at least they are having fun and staying out of trouble!
