Our day at the Pumpkin Patch

We went to Wagner's Farm this afternoon. Connor was so excited! He was running through the corn maze laughing. Last time I went Wagner's Farm it was with my students from school and my group got lost in the corn maze. It was crazy hard! We had to end up cutting through the corn maze to get to the pumpkin patch. We were so lost. But Josh had us out of there, no problem at all! Connor found the smallest pumpkin he could find. The last picture is his final pumpkin choice. He wants to carve it but I think it is too small. For our group picture we had to get creative and prop my camera on a hay stack and balance it just right on an ear of corn. :) But we made it work. We had a great time. Connor even got to ride on a tractor and a horse carriage! I love spending time with my family! It makes all the stress and worries fade away. Thanks for a great day boys!

Connor Turned 3!!

Connor just celebrated his third birthday on Sunday, October 17th. He had a blast at a small party that we threw for him at my mom's house. He had a pirate themed party because that is what he is into at the moment. He had a great time jumping in the jumper with not a care in the world. Time flies way to quickly- I wish I could just freeze time sometimes and keep him small forever. I think that is why I like photos so much! Photos always remind me of how much he has grown and all the special moments that we have shared as a family.
I have such a busy weekend planned! I hope to be able to tour some of the parade of homes. One of my favorite things to do during this time of year. I love interior design and see how people decorate these incredible homes that we would never live in. I also want to take Connor to the pumpkin patch. He has never been to one before and I think he would have a blast!
In a few short weeks, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows comes to theatre!!! I am so excited to go and see it. I wish it wasn't just part 1, part 2 doesn't come out until February! That is such a long time. I hope it is as awesome as the book! I have very high expectations for the movie. Probably won't make it to the midnight showing but I plan on making it the next night.
I hope everyone is doing well. I PROMISE to post some more pictures sooner. I cannot believe how bad I have been about posting pictures.
