Our Jack-O-Lanterns

We had planned to carve pumpkins last Sunday but ended up attending a neighborhood fall party and when we got home it was too late. So we pushed that project off until Monday and again something else came up. So finally last night we got around to getting our pumpkins carved.


Every day when Julia gets up and we start our morning routine, it always involves her asking for a hairbow. So yesterday we tried something a little different. Here she is with her new look!

Doing a flyby

Claxton and Julia both share Brian's passion for aviation. We have quite a number of airplanes flying over our house every day with some of the new flight patterns from the main airport here, plus there are several small private airfields close to us. When we are outside they both are quick to find one when they hear it. And even when we are inside and hear one fly over at least one or both of them is shouting "airplane, airplane!". Today was a special treat for Brian, he got to go flying with one of his buddies. But what we even better is that they circled the house a few times and the kids got to wave to Daddy up in the sky. I think everyone in the neighborhood could hear them screaming "Hi Daddy. Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Hi!"

Watching Dad doing a flyby!

Photo Update

Ok, it's been a while and quite honestly I've had a ton of good material to post over the past few months. Unfortunately other things seem to take precedence, or probably more accurately stated - I've just gotten really lazy. We usually make it to a pumpkin farm about an hour away, but haven't made it up there this year. So this weekend, we went to a local nursery that had several activities for the kids.

He was quite intrigued with the white pumpkin.

Scarce supply of pumpkins since we arrived late in the day. Julia kept calling them apples (she calls strawberries apples too, but at least they are red!)

Waiting for the hay ride.
