Halloween Performance

Caleb was so excited to find that 2 other boys in his class were also Spiderman. Check out the school performance. As you can see Madeline also likes to play Spiderman.


We went over to a friends house so all of the kids could play in their costumes. We had a wonderful lunch, decorated cupcakes and pumpkins. All the kids had a good time.

Carving Pumpkins

Caleb has been asking for days to carve the pumpkins. We actually started out with 2 of them but one of them rotted. Caleb drew the face and was so proud of it. Madeline liked to play with the seed just like last year. Once the pumpkin was complete Caleb awed over it and was very proud. Madeline also really like it too.

Mini Pumpkin Pies (YUM)

Yummy, Pumpkin Pie. This year we decided to make mini pies. Mostly because I had already used ½ the can for pumpkin/chocolate chip muffins. Anyhow, the kids LOVED working the dough, using the bowl to make the pie crust fit into the muffin pan and the cut outs of the shapes. The kids enjoyed preparing the pies more than eating them. Eric and I ate pretty much all of them and enjoyed each and every bite. I can’t wait to make them again.

Theis Farm

Last year I learned of Theis Farm but never made it there. One of my friends went 4 times and now I know why. If this was not the last week I would definitely take the kids again. We played there for 3 hours. They had a corn maze, 2 hay mazes (that you needed a flash light for but we had Eric:), a zip line, pedal tractors for the kids to ride on, a hayride, swings that were made out of recycled tires that look like horses, animals, and more.

The pirate boat that the kids loved. On the deck they could crawl down a later and run through the boat and come up on the other side.

Caleb loved the Zip Line

Eric thought it would be fun if we both did the zip line together. I was all sport about it but honestly I totally hesitated when it was our turn. That is a lot of trust you give a rope when you jump off and glide. I kept thinking… my son is watching I better jump and enjoy. But here is a picture of Eric and I am hesitating for a few seconds.

Proof that I made it through.
