We had a fun Halloween this year!  The weekend before was the ECFE Halloween party and the girls and I had fun at that.  They both played lots of games and enjoyed the story time and gift bag.  Dave took Halloween off, so was able to help out at Abby's Halloween party at school (making dirt cup snacks).  We bundled up and went trick-or-treating around the neighborhood after enjoying our jack-o-lantern pizza.  Abby lucked out and even got to hand out candy to a trick-or-treater when we got home (which was better than last year--we don't get too much traffic...).

My pictures of Halloween night are on my phone, so as soon as I get Dropbox and get them onto the computer, I'll add pictures of the girls together!

MEA Break--Parks with the Clarks part two

We had such a great time on our MEA trip to our friend Tiffany and Pat's family cabin.  The girls and I met up with their family for a picnic lunch at Lake Maria State Park first.  The fall colors were BEAUTIFUL here and we had a great time hiking around and taking in the sights.  Norah trailed everyone and wanted to pick up every...single...acorn along the path.  Her pockets were pretty full!

Dave met up with us at the cabin, and we enjoyed spending two nights there.  The kids played together so well, and Henry and Norah especially enjoyed hide and seek.

We visited another state park--Glendalaugh State Park.  We hiked around and looked at the historical building there.  The colors were pretty, but not quite as vibrant as Lake Maria.  We were hoping to check out the yurts there, but it was too long of a hike for a chilly day.

We had a blast, and are so thankful for such wonderful friends!

Pumpkin patch

Even though Dave was working, the girls and I still had fun stopping by the pumpkin patch one night after school.  We had the place to ourselves, and had fun picking out the perfect pumpkins!
