Dustin left Labor Day weekend for a trip to China.
We tried to keep busy with lots of fun activites!
We made our annual corn shock bundles to decorate the yard.
We grew A LOT of pumpkins and gourds this year!
Since we had so many gourds the kids decided to paint a few!
Preston did a little camo and added in some pink "for color."
Peighton wanted a Cyclone gourd...and some pink because it's her favorite color.
We also made some pumpkin crafts for our Halloween tree!
Super cute and ready for Halloween...even though it was still a month away.
After a week and a half Dustin finally made it home with lots of fun stuff for the kids!
Preston's favorite is his gourd flute.
We have been hearing lots of "lovely" tunes out of this thing.
Sometimes it goes "missing."
He brought each of the kids a fan and showed them a video of people dancing in the streets with them.
He brought them some other handmade items from some of the villages he visited, as well as pearl necklaces and cashmere scarves.
We had fun while he was gone but we're super glad he's back home!
