Happy Halloween

This was the first Halloween Mason really understood what was going on. Well, I guess as much as a 2 1/2 year old can. He had fun picking out his costume and even picked out Madison's. I really wanted them to be M&Ms since we are always calling them our little M&Ms but Mason already has an opinion, and when he saw his monster costume he was hooked. So, my dreams of having M&Ms for Halloween were gone and we ended up with a monster and a lady bug. I have to admit they were cute! I was able to get M&M shirts for them to wear during the day. We only trick or treated for a little while before he lost all interest and he ended up coming back to the house and helping me pass out candy. He had more fun passing out candy than trick or treating! He even chased a few kids down to add more candy to their bag. It was so much fun seeing him get excited every time a kid came to the door.

Enjoying Fall

It's fall! It's finally cool enough to get outside again. We've been enjoying a few picnics and realizing a few of our toys that were just the right size in the spring have some how become too small now that it's fall.

We have made it to a few pumpkin patches this year.

We have also been busy making Halloween treats for school and carving pumpkins.

And lots, and lots, and lots of playing. Madison is 7 months now and crawling and pulling up on things. She follows Mason around and anytime he is on the floor she tries to play with him. Mason is loving the attention. He wants to get her out of bed in the morning and is very disapointed if she is awake before him.
