It has seriously been a magical month for the little dudes. They got to see their first circus, when we scored on VIP tickets from a friend. It was a late evening so we left E with my nieces, and rode the train down town. They would have been totally satisfied with that...the circus was just the icing on the cake.
There was a lot of open mouthed stares the whole night.
Finn and I stayed up late one night and watched the blood moon rise. We have some much fun with him now that he is older and understands somewhat the goings on around him. And he is silly as all get out!
Of course we ventured out to a pumpkin patch to grab a cookie, some hot cider, and of course some gourds. Since we had grown some warty ones in our garden, we only selected two for carving this year, but with Finn and Roy picking of course they were giant.
It didn't feel much like fall as it was nearly 80 degrees outside, but E didn't seem to mind.
We made it up to the mountains to see some of the fall leaves, and hiked one of my favorite hikes. Hiking with three young kids takes a bit of work, but Finn managed pretty well, and miss M got a ride most of the way up and down on me so all in all not bad.
E had her 18 month check up and finally made onto the charts in height and weight. We are also excited to see what a daily dose of miralax will do for our babe with a slow track!
I could be wrong, but I like to think that E makes this kissy lips because she has such big teeth.
On another very warm Autumn day, we made a trip over to Gardener Village with our cousins to see the witches...along with the rest of the valley it seemed like. Mostly, the kids liked the ducks, fish, and the carmel apple we split.
October also welcomed our newest family member. Little Maven (Mae) Sullivan is wonderful chubby addition, and Meg keeps asking when we can go see "baby Maben" again!
Of course our month ended with all the magic that Halloween can bring. Finn was stoked about his Wall-E costume (which was an absolute labor of love), and was all smiles at his preschool parade.
We had poisened apple fondu, deviled eggs, bats wings, mummy dogs, mildew balls, eyeball grapes, and all sorts of other yummy goodies.
After our epic haul of trick-or-treating goodies, we spent Sunday recovering and relaxing. The girls especially love watching videos with daddy.
