Fall has arrived

Well, even though it was pretty warm out today we are officially welcoming fall to Northwest Indiana! The nights have been cool and we haven't had our air conditioning on in days and days... (though being this pregnant I sometimes wish we did!)

Addy is still trying to grasp the concept of seasons. Right now she thinks all the pumpkins are exclusively for Halloween. John Michael is indifferent about Halloween, though with his sweet tooth (courtesy of the Hamstra blood) I'm sure this will be a memorable holiday for him in the future.

We decided to take advantage of the last of our baby free days by going to a nearby farm stand and picking up some fall decorations.

John Michael insisted he try to pick up a pumpkin on his own:



Addy had a blast playing on the pumpkins. She loved picking up any pumpkin not to heavy for her.



Here are the kiddos cheesin' it up for the trusty ole point & shoot.



And when we got home they collected the scarecrows Mom Mom bought them a few weeks ago to put them in the hay we bought.



And finally, the finished product.



I'd still love to get some mums to put by the door but they were just too expensive at the place we went to. The kids had a blast though and I'm looking forward to the cooler days... and hopefully another little one to share them with!

Hi, Michelle! Cute pictures. I just wanted to let you know that I am praying for you. I ask Emilee almost everyday if she has heard anything! By the way...I got my mums for $2.50 at walmart last week!

Looks like you guys had fun at the pumpkin patch! Tell Addy and John Michael I miss them already.

I see that the baby in the widget has gone...did you have the baby yet? We have all been praying for you!

i think the baby is gone because you aren't supposed to be 41 weeks pregnant! But, nope, baby is still in my belly. :)
