Where did October go......???

Where did the month of October go......??? I don't think we had one free night to relax. It seems like every night is spent with activities for the kids or spending time helping Tyler with homework. I can not believe the amount of work she has between her spelling tests, phonogram tests, and her little book reports. At least we were able to squeeze in a few fun activities.

Trick-or-treating was so exausting this year and Tanner out ran ALL of us. He was on a mission and we finally were able to get him home when his bucket was too heavey to carry. Of course for the last 3 days it seems like all we have had to eat is CANDY!

One of our favorite things to do this time of year is visit the pumpkin patch. Tanner and Daddy Dustin always find their pumpkins right a way but Tyler and I usually take a bit longer to find the perfect pumpkins. Dustin still doesn't know why I have to have to find gourds for decorating. He likes to call those the retarded pumpkins and doesn't understand why we actually have to pay for them.
This year we had Aunt Kirsten and Grandma and Grandpa Olson over to carve pumpkins with us. We had a blast!
