Tuesday, October 26, 2010
October has been a busy month for us... birthdays (of course the big 1 for Tyler & Caroline, but did I mention that Nathan turned the BIG 3-0 just four days later?!) as well as a few trips to play amongst pumpkins. We found a local pumpkin patch called Harmon's Tree Farm, and supposedly it was the place to go. We really enjoyed their petting zoo, but the vast, open-air pumpkin patch we sought after was not to be found. They more or less had pumpkins in boxes (as you can see below), but we did really enjoy the hayride and the petting zoo!

We had such an awesome time ringing in the big "1," & we really appreciate our friends and family that came to celebrate it with us (since most of them had to travel to do so!). I had been planning this little soiree in my head for quite some time, but seeing it come together in a way that everyone really enjoyed themselves made me smile. I spent almost the whole weekend leading up to the party (it was on Sunday, the 17th) in the kitchen, but I must admit... it was worth it. The cupcakes, the giant cupcakes, the cookies - yummy. Most of all, seeing Caroline and Tyler go to town on them might have been one of the highlights of 2010.
*See that banner? I made it myself, and it only took me from midnight till 4am one morning to do so - ha!! :)
This girl knows what to do with it, for sure.
Tyler decided he'd just as soon share his with Connor, as usual.
