Octoberfest!


Since I've been such a great slacker about my blogging, I've missed posting pictures and stories from things we've gone and done recently. So I'm going to blog a bit about our October. A not so fond memory I have from October is all the rain we got. It was crazy the amount of rain we were getting here. In Oklahoma when you get lots of rain with high temps all you end up with is a bunch of uncomfortable humidity! It's nuts for it to be 60-65 degrees outside and you have to turn the A/C on! Ah well... rain with humidity is still better than 108 Deg. any day!

Onto October! We had a bunch going on in Oct. it's always a busy month! Camp Fire Fall Camp, Pumpkin Patch visits, Halloween.. Lot's to plan for. This year we took the girls to a different Pumpkin Patch, one we've never been to before. We had a good time. Ashley and I were so wore out that day though because we went on the Sunday that we got back from Camp Fire Fall Camp. The Pumpkin Patch was fun, they all sorts of regular pumpkin patch events for the kids to enjoy but their pumpkins were $7! Even for a small one, so we ended up making a pit stop at the big "W" to get $2 pumpkins to carve instead. I got some really sweet photo's of the girls at the Pumpkin Patch and we look forward to going again next year! Here are the photo's from our Pumpkin Patch visit...







We carve our pumpkins that same night but we have the worse luck with pumpkins! Last year we sat them out on the porch and it rained and they molded, so this year it was raining and I sat them on the table and they still molded :( We're all new to this so maybe there is something we're missing that we're supposed to do... or maybe it's just the Oklahoma Humidity. On any count I did get some pics before they were a total waste.. here are our short lived but Cute pumpkins...



Well, that covers at least two things I guess :) I still need to post about Camp Fire Fall Camp and Halloween :) It was a fun month & November is sailing by way to fast, I'm scared at the speed Christmas is coming towards us! argh.

Until next time ...
