Harvest is done!

Its been a long harvest season...probably longer to me since the day after it started we welcomed a new baby into our family! So glad they are done and so thankful it was a good year for them. Seth was so relieved he chose to collapse on the couch with Isaac instead of his usual celebratory drink! Now time to start working on getting ready for the holidays!

A year ago today...

I know a big trend these days is to do the "throw back Thursdays" but since I still have yet to know what all this hashtag craziness is about, I just like to do the "look at your pictures you took exactly a year ago from today" type of thing. Well today's made me want to cry and laugh at the same time. This little guy is so stinking cute and just as mischievious! 

Just a little chubby thing learning how to pull himself up on things...

...and empty ever drawer. Child locks don't have anything on Eli!

And now he is still chubby and pant-less...feeding the dog Eli-style!

Happy Halloween

My mother-in-law warned me...Halloween is nuts when you're a farmer's wife! 
For one, you don't live in a neighborhood so trick or treating is me loading up the kids in costume and going to the "neighbors" house, two miles away. The perk about this is that since people know these poor farm kids have a whole 3 houses to trick or treat at, they don't just give you a measley fun size snickers, they give you a BAG of goodies and a toy!
 Last night, we got Eli loaded up in his adorable homemade Superman costume and Isaac all bundled up and headed out. We made it to Aunt Taylor and Uncle Grant's and all was going well, until Eli peed through everything he had on except his cape and socks. So, needless to say, Superman quickly became Captain Diaper-pants! When we got to Grandma and Grandpas he literally flew in, cape flying behind him and ran straight for the toy room with all his glorious chub for all to see! I just hope in 15 years when he's in high school, he doesn't try to make a comeback with this outfit. It definitely won't be nearly as cute as it was last night!

Lois Lane and mini Superman Isaac!

How could you NOT give this cutie some sweet treats?
Superman one minute...

Captain Underwear the next!

 Hope you all have a safe and Happy Halloween! Now its time for the REAL Holidays to begin!
