Raking leaves at Grandma's house

Last night after our weekly Sunday dinner at Grandma's house we went out into the back yard and raked leaves. It didn't take long before we had a huge pile to run and jump into. The kids took turns jumping into the pile and even some of the adults took turns jumping in. We took some pretty funny home video of all of us running and jumping in.

Carving Pumpkins and Baking cookies!

two of our kids' favorite things to do during Halloween. Carving pumpkins and baking sugar cookies. We did both yesterday. We carved pumpkins after church, and then last night we made sugar cookies to take around to all of our friends and neighbors.

Our kids love scooping out pumpkin guts and making a mess. Our kids also love to try and carve their own pumpkins. They did a pretty good job this year. We still have a few more pumpkins to carve the next couple of nights, but here are a few pictures I took. They also snapped a picture of me pretending to eat a big bite of pumpkin guts.
