Birthday Bowling!

Peighton chose to take a few friends bowling for her birthday this year.
We all had lots of fun!
The girls went back and forth using the ramp and just rolling it.
There were only a few balls that had to be rescued because they didn't make it all the way down!

Bowling buddies.

Preston chose not to use the ramp and he did pretty well!

After bowling we went for pizza!

Preston got to bring one of his preschool buddies along and they had so much fun!
It was funny to hear the conversations that went on between the two of them.
And they only bugged the girls occasionally.

We had to blow out at least one candle to make it an official birthday party!

She requested hot chocolate for her birthday breakfast.

And of course cinnamon rolls with a candle!

We have been taking pictures with this bear every year on her birthday.
We both love to look through all the pictures and how she has changed!

Cy and Preston don't like to be left out.


We had a great day celebrating all things Peighton.
We went out for Mexican, watched a movie, played in the snow and played games.
It was a great 8th birthday!

Father/Daughter Dance

A few weekends ago, Dustin and Peighton went to a Father/Daughter dance and had a great time dancing the night away!
Cy wouldn't stay OUT of the picture so we just put him in one!

Peighton said they had lots of fun!

Leaves, Pumpkins, and trick or treating

Peighton BEGS Grandma Sue to rake up her leaves every fall so they can jump in them.
Grandma Sue is the only one with big enough trees with plenty of leaves to rake up!
We found an afternoon that was fairly nice and got together for fun in the leaves!

This was about the only place that all four of them stood still for more than 2 seconds!

There was lots of running....

and giggling.

We took a break from the leaves for a snack and carving Grandma's pumpkins.
The girls took one.

And the boys did the other.
Then we headed back out for one more round in the leaves.

This would have been a great picture...if Hayden weren't eating a stick. ;-)

They all had fun and I think only one of them got their head sat on in the leaves.

 On Friday, they got to dress up in their costumes for school.
Preston was super excited to finally have a "real" Halloween party!
I was excited that I got to go to both of their parties for lots of Halloween fun!
No idea what Spiderman is doing here....I'm guessing he was cold.

We had to move inside for more pictures.

Spidey loved his muscles.

He shot me a few times with his web.

Not sure what this pose was but it's pretty funny.

Queen Elsa played the part quite well.

After some Jack-o-lantern pizza we headed to town for trick or treating!

We found Olaf at Grandma Pat's house!

After a quick picture with Grandma Pat and Grandpa Marvin we were off for some very cold trick or treating!
Trick or treating with these four is like herding cats.
It was quite fun and we all laughed a lot....there was fighting over whose turn it was to ring the doorbell...there was crying over not being able to eat EVERY SINGLE PIECE OF CANDY...but mostly there was lots and lots of laughing.
Can't wait until we do it all again next year!

We grew a Jack-o-lantern!

It was so fun to use our own pumpkins for all our fall stuff this year.
(And much cheaper too!)
The potato head pumpkins are a must-do.

They each chose one of our big pumpkins to carve.

Not sure why they both did the same thing for a picture!

Peighton made sure hers was missing a few teeth!
We will definitely be planting our own pumpkins again next year!

A day at the Pumpkin Patch!

At the beginning of October we took a trip to the pumpkin patch.
We love going to Harvestville Farms!

Peighton wants one of these in the barn.
Not a bad idea!

They made Dustin get on one of these scooters.

Then they had a race!

The kids also thought I had to try it out-it's harder than it looks!

A little grocery shopping was done.

And a little bouncing.

They have the BEST corn pit!

My favorite part was racing the kids on the tricycles!

We all hopped on!

It was quite a race with lots of giggles!

There was more than one wreck...all by Peighton...but it was super fun!

We took a hay ride...must have been a little bright for Preston.

We took one last ride on the tire horse and then had to head home.
What a great day at the pumpkin patch!
