We had a wonderful halloween this year! We had dinner at the house with our family and friends and then we all went out trick or treating.  Harrison was a caterpillar and a butterfly.  Madeline was Ariel and Benjamin was Linus.  Madeline was super excited about Halloween this year and it was fun to watch her excitment.  Benjamin had no idea what was going on, but he did get candy from a couple houses, only when he was done eating the previous candy.  Harrison enjoyed checking out the Haunted Houses and graveyards.  When I didn't go with him one time, he told me since I was dressed like a witch I would really like it and I should check it out.  So he took me back to look at it.  He also brought me up to see some pumpkins that had been carved like animals.  He is very thoughtful like that.  We went around the block and then came home and the kids enjoyed passing out candy to the other kids.

A trip to the Pumpkin Farm

I decided to take the kids and their friends to the pumpkin farm one afternoon.  It is always so much fun and the kids love it.  We were there for hours. 

Below are the yearly pictures I make the kids take.  I think Benjamin is going to follow in his brothers footsteps and not pose for the pictures.  Its so hard to get a picture of Harrison lately.

This picture of Madeline below is one I caught of the two of them watching some rooster talk.  But it was just adorable how she was holding onto her brother, they are always doing this and I just love how good they are to eachother.
 The kids all enjoy an ice cream.

Benjamin loved the hay ride.  HE couldn't get enough of it, unfortunately on the way back from picking pumpkins he could barely keep his eyes open and this is him trying to stay awake for the hay ride.

The End

We finally have a walker!!!!

Benjamin took his first step on August 5th, but he decided he was going to hold off showing them off for awhile.  Finally the middle of September he started walking and hasn't looked back.  When he gets tired he gets pretty sloppy, but he is adorable to watch him walk and drag his blanket behind him.

First day of Kindergarten

After much and much discussion, Tim and I finally decided to send Harrison to Kindergarten this year.  We had been planning on waiting a year, but we put him in a summer program and he did awesome and he absolutely loved it and kept asking when he started school.  So my baby boy is growing up.  I don't think he realized what a big day this was.  I made him breakfast of his choice, which was lucky charms, donuts, an egg, cinammon toast, and chocolate frosting. He has never asked for an egg before, I think it was so he could have something from the "always group" instead of the just "sometimes" group of food.  The whole family walked him to his class.  I cried, the teacher finally kicked us out and we left.  He did fine!  He loved it!!!  He is just growing so fast and is so smart and just a social butterfly.

4th of July 2010!

Daddy and Benjamin
Harrison riding in the parade
A family shot!
We once again enjoyed another year of our local city parade.  The kids decorated their bikes the night before and were very excited to ride in the parade.  However once the parade started, Madeline got nervous, started crying and so she sat with Grandma while we finished the parade. I was a little nervous as Harrison was riding his bike and since he no longer needs training wheels was worried that he might be a little out of control, but he did great.  I did not think Benjamin would sit in the wagon the whole time, but he too loved the parade.  We enjoyed a great day with the whole family.  After the parade we rushed out to try out our new boat, we had just bought the day before.  We enjoyed a day on the lake then came home and had a bar-b-que at my brothers house followed by some great fireworks.  Madeline did not enjoy them much this year, she got tired of the noises they made.
