leaves & pumpkins

Despite their strep throat diagnosis, Cate and Ben had a fun weekend that started with a day at home while the antibiotics worked. But they still got to play in leaves ...

Then Cate decorated pumpkins ...


And then on Sunday, we were barely at home. And the kids seemed fine with that.

After church and a quick nap, we celebrated Davey and Eva's first birthday. They are 3 1/2 weeks older than Ben. You may remember their early friendship. And their many photos together, including Ben and Davey's matching outfits, more than once.

The sports-themed party was really fun and, as you'll see, Davey really loved his cake. Oh, and, Ben loved his first-ever cheese puff. He then stole someone else's cupcake, but we snatched it before he got much more than a couple of bites. I can only imagine what he's going to do when we actually give him a piece of birthday cake.


And, although I don't have pictures, we really loved the fall festival at Westside Baptist Church, where Cate goes to preschool. There was trunk-or-treating, games, free food and farm animals. We're hoping this is a new Halloween tradition for our family because it was more fun that old-fashioned trick-or-treating.

Ben also had a second helping of cheese puffs at the fall festival. It was quite a day for our boy who loves to eat.


  1. I have similar photos of the boys in a pile of leaves. Funny how things change, but stay the same too.
