October 28

Whew - finally getting the pumpkins carved! Since we're strange here in Iowa we trick-or-treat on Friday, so we had to get them done!
Braden was a big help cleaning them out (as long as he didn't have to touch the goo!)

Blake liked his first pumpkin!

And since Optimus Prime (aka Braden) wanted an Autobot Transformer symbol this year - mommy gave it her best shot! I still have one more to carve, but my hand was tired tonight, I'll do the other one and get their pictures with them tomorrow!

Braden is learning quickly that he may have to start doing his puzzles on the table!
Blake was VERY interested in it today and kept wanting to 'help' :)

Learning to pick things up off a tray can get really frustrating when you can barely reach over the tray - dangit!

I'm cheating - these were from yesterday :)
Braden's last soccer game of the season!
We can definitely see improvement in his play - he really liked playing it and that is awesome!
Go Falcons!

Can't believe that is the same hat...the N looks so big when he was wearing it in the NICU...guess his brain is growing :)

"Mom, why am I sitting in a pile of leaves?"

He then found his little lion guy was pretty darn funny!

Today was finally a beautiful day after lots of cold and rain - so the boys and I headed to the Pumpkin Patch after school today!

The corn pit is always a favorite!
