First School Picture

Alistair and Autumn's School picture for year 2011 !

Birthdays 1 and 3 !

Crazy having to kids bdays less then 24hrs apart. This year was our first experience with it, so we decided to play this year cool and stay home with cake/presents. We all thought it resembled Christmas, so I think this maybe part one Christmas ...oh boy
We got a big bday surprise when Gma flew in from AZ on Thursday night, I almost dropped the baby when I saw her come down the stairs...Jeff and her had it all planned.
Saturday morning we made breakfast then brought the kids down to open presents...boy do we have spoiled little kids. I made each kiddo their own cakes one chocolate for the bday boy and one strawberry for the bday girl. Took of all the clothes just in case and boy was that a good idea. Right to the bath tub with them afterwards. After the morning festivities we went to Penisula and Hudson to check it out, two pretty cool towns. Later after Starbucks treat of course, we went to Swings and Things and Daddy and Alistair rode on the race track...Alistair was in heaven , he's got the need for speed for sure.
Sunday (today) was nothing but clean up and lots of naptime..ahhh what a great bday weekend

Trunk or Treat

Our first Trunk or Treat ! We were one of about 40 cars participating in the event. We deciding to decorate the car as a Shark and cut holes in a black tarp , each hole contained something found in the belly of a shark, including an octopus , sea magnets and lots of candy of course..
The kids were dressed up and got to trick or treat to the other cars. Alistair was an astronaut and Autumn was a panda (of course). Lots of fun for Halloween this year

Fall in Ohio

Wish there was a way to bottle up all this fresh and air Fall beauty and send to my family and friends in FL and AZ. One of the best times of year and being in this fun orchard/farm started it all for usJust to be able to pull out the jackets and jeans again!! Autumn was loving Autumn
Sneaking a picture with my little man on the Moo moo Train. We waiting 1.5hrs to get this ride, it was worth it
It was pulled by a tractor and each barrel seat was named for one of the farms cows
The train went around the 4 acre corn maze at Mapleside Farms
Better pictures were taken with my phone, but I got to take a couple with my camera once I had a free had to do so.
More fall adventures to come
