Fall Pics

Things have been very busy around here. We had these pics taken 2 weeks ago and I am just now getting around to posting them. I have a lot more activities to post......hopefully soon.

You will see the pic of Addy in her "cowboy" outfit. This is her Halloween costume. She is very much into Halloween this year. She's been talking about it for weeks. She understands the concept that she will say "trick-or-treat" and get candy and is very much into dressing up in a costume. I thought that I would be able to pick out her costume one more year and pick something very cute like a bumblebee, monkey or some other cute animal. Well I forgot that very quickly. As soon as I asked her what she wanted to be for Halloween, she told me a cowboy and hasn't changed her mind. I'm not really sure where the cowboy idea came from, but she's sticking to it. If you try and convince her that she's a cowgirl rather then a cowboy, she insists that she's a cowboy. I guess I don't always get my way.

A Trip to the Apple Orchard

We headed out to Blake's Cider Mill and Apple Orchard today. Us along with the millions of other people who decided to go today. It was an absolute zoo, but Addy had a blast. She was very excited about taking a hayride out to the pumpkin patch to pick her own pumpkin. We ate cider and donuts and then drove our car out to the orchards to pick apples. Fun day!
