|A very muddy, cupcake-faced, very happy David after his last soccer game of the season. SO proud of his trophy.|
|Apple picking with Grammy and Papa John. The low ones were picked over so they gave us one of these picker sticks and Luke was downright dangerous with it, insisting on doing it himself.|
|Success! Apple butter in our future...|
|Katy was having a hard time getting a bite while missing her two front teeth.|
|The kids look forward to this all fall.|
|Such a pretty day!|
|Stopped at Velvet ice cream factory on the way home. I wish we could have stayed longer because the place was beautiful, historic, and enormous.|
|It takes the patience of a grandmother to make an apple pie with this many helpers.|
|Shortly after this photo was taken, we discovered that this one had a fever, which was the start of a week long battle with Roseola. Poor baby was SO sick. Just miserable. It was a tough week.|
|Labor of love.|
|Anne and Cheryl (with Anne's baby Thomas)|
|We were happy to meet Cheryl's husband Brian since we were not able to attend their wedding last year. (That's baby Thomas again, Cheryl was getting her baby fix :)|
|All (fantastic) fathers now - Art, Jason, and Mark|
|Kristen and baby Matthew.|
|These boys were due on the same day, but ended up being 3 weeks apart by birthdate. I love seeing babies' reaction to each other. So sweet.|
|Ready for Halloween!|
Other news from October before it's gone from my mind:
- I went to a continuing education class for a full day and left Brian with the kids - first time I've been away from that for that long in quite a while.
- Melanie went on a mission trip with my Dad and Sue to Jamaica - they had a really great trip, good experience.
- My friend Cindy had a 2nd baby girl, Amelia Marion, on my Dad's birthday! Precious.
