Fall Holidays 2014

Thanksgiving and decorating the Christmas tree

Halloween 2014


Friends of ours had lab puppies for sale and we got to come play! Even I enjoyed them. Probably cause I knew I'd give them back.

Fall 2014

We've been busy this month. Lots going on at all 3 schools...parties, fieldtrips, homecoming dance, etc.

 Gabe plays a lot with his cars.

He's also really into taking pictures.



Gabe at Russell Farms for apple picking.

And tasting of course!

Laura and Zoe all ready for their homecoming dance! They had an awesome time at their first dance.

Gabe has just begun to be interested in coloring, period. And he said, Mommy, Daddy, look at this man I drew. We are proud :) 

Olivia is reading like crazy and very occasionally, like these 2 times, she will read to Gabe.

She lost both front teeth with in a week.

This is another of Gabe's creations. Actually, this is a picture of me. See the long girl eyelashes?

We celebrated Zoe's (in white) 15th birthday by going out for chinese food :) I don't have any pictures of it, but we went hiking for Laura's birthday in September. 

Reese and Gabe on their pumpkin patch field trip

Gabe wouldn't pose in front of the pumpkin, but Reese was game!

On the hayride to the patch to pick a pumpkin. It was a fun but freezing day.

We went to Apple Hills for lunch and to feed the animals. The goat was the biggest I've ever seen, and very greedy with the food. 

Addie's Flat Stanley finally came with us on an outing and really enjoyed himself. Now he just needs to make the trip back to WI :)

Look closely....

First Day of School! 4 kids, 3 different schools...

We get Zoe, Laura's cousin (they say sisters:) as well! Everyone is off to school today. We pick up our new mini van tonight at 5:30. Here's to creating a new normal as a family of 6. We're thrilled to have them here with us.

Olivia, our 1st grader! 
Her front right tooth is going to fall out very very soon.

And, last but not least, Gabe! He'll be in the pre-school class through Vestal each afternoon from 12:15-3:15. His class has 13 boys and 3 girls. Oh. Dear.
