In other news, we had a pretty decent snow yesterday! Seems like there is always a good snow in October, but we'll be back to sunny skies and warm temps in a few days!
This is actually from the night before the snow, but isn't he cute in his hat??Pretty Plum tree with snow!
Now for a random story. This is Oliver and Bear. Oliver loves Bear. He carries it everywhere. Bear makes Oliver very happy. Bear has some issues. Oliver eats Bear. Here he is taking a bite.Chewing some fur...Uh, yeah. This is what Bear looks like now. That's a bald spot. And bald ears. Has anyone else's kids ever done this? Maybe this is too much info, but yes, there has been fur in Oliver's diaper before. Poor Bear.
Oliver got to play with rocks... so he was pretty happy!
That, and barking at ALL animals and playing pumpkin drums was just about all Oliver needed to have a good day! He also spent a lot of time shouting "ball" at the acres and acres of pumpkins. Here Oliver is barking at a cow.Pumpkin drums...Enjoying the wagon ride with the fam...Finding our perfect pumpkin!Avery lovin' the barrel train. She rode it twice!The highlight of the day for Avery was when we were nearby when the ponies arrived to begin pony rides. She got to watch them unload and then the sweetest little kids let her help get one of the ponies ready!!! She got to brush it and help put the blanket on! She was so excited! I think she won them over with her little stable shirt that has a flap on it- when you open it, there is a horse inside! It's her favorite shirt!!
Petting and brushing her new buddy...
Helping put on the blanket. Seriously, these kids could not have been nicer to her! They kept telling her what a good helper she was and asking her all sorts of questions about her love for horses!Avery with her favorite horse in the background. Looks like Trigger liked Avery too!Avery and Trigger!Wooooaaaa!!!
So here is our happy little guy with his big lip! Some of these pictures are kind of gross, but it had to be preserved for posterity's sake! I think they get progressively grosser, so stop reading if you're not interested!
This is Oliver's latest "trick" and I couldn't resist sharing it. He really, really likes animals and tends to bark at most things that look like a mammal- excitedly!!! 101 Dalmations was on tv the other day and Oliver was freaking out! But thanks to one of Avery's stuffed animals that purrs and meows, he has learned a super realistic meow. I think its the cutest thing, so here it is.
It should be noted that our neighbor graciously offered Avery her choice of some stuffed animals (which does creep me out a bit- not because of the neighbor, but the germs- but she was excited... so whateryagonnado). I came home from work the other night and our living room is full of these freakishly realistic stuffed animals- a huge doberman pincher, a scary cat, a creepy squirrel, a bunny, and this weird ocelot thingy that Oliver is loving on.
