Boo at the Zoo

It was crazy crowded, even though we got there right as it opened! But once inside it wasn't near as bad as we were expecting. We didn't really look at the animals too much but the boys were more interested in getting candy anyways. Easton was The Thing, Cole was Wolverine and Peyton was the same thing both his older brothers were for their second Halloween - a monkey. The boys had lots of fun, but how could they not, we just combined two of their favorite things - candy and the zoo.

Waiting in the first line, but once we decided to bypass the huge wait for just a KitKat, the lines were super short, if there were even lines at all

Our second attempt, obviously this must not be his favorite animal

It's the Great Pumpkin Patch!!

We went to a pumpkin patch last night. It was actually very fun, even though we were freezing by the end. We went on a hay ride and then got to pick out our own pumpkins. Easton and Cole said they wanted to find one they could hold all by themselves. Cole was being so funny. His first choice of pumpkin was a small piece of a pumpkin that had been broken, like it was really just a chunk of the shell and some seeds. I think he was just excited to see something he could pick up by himself since most the pumpkins we had passed by were huge. After I told him that it wasn't a good pumpkin he threw it on the ground and refused to touch it again so I could take a picture. Bummer. Then he found a whole one and pulled it off the vine with Seth's help. Later as we were walking along he saw one that was maybe a millimeter smaller than the one in his hands so he got excited and threw the one he had in his hands down and picked up the other one. Then he did the exact same thing again. Such a silly boy.

First Snowfall

We woke up Sunday morning to a surprising amount of snow on the ground. (The news said our area got 6 inches.) The older boys begged me to go play out in the snow but of course since it was Sunday they couldn't go outside to play. I told them if it was there tomorrow they could play it then. Luckily it still was, barely in some spots, but enough for them to have fun. Easton was SO excited. He has been asking for snow since July.

Throwing snowballs from Dad's truck, of course after observing his brothers a couple times Peyton figured out exactly what to do

Peyton getting his first taste of snow. The snow kept sticking to his glove and he seemed very confused as to how to try and get it off. Soon he discovered he could get it off by eating it.

Easton proving me wrong. He asked me if we could build a snowman and I told him there wasn't enough snow so he came back and said "Look at my snowman Mom. See I told you I could build one."
