Hurricane October!

Wondering why I haven't blogged in a while? Well, October has just been a whirlwind of activities: Car shows, carnivals, corn mazes, birthday parties, pony rides, trunk-or-treating.

Doodle Bug's first pony ride... not a nervous bone in his body!

His FIRST big boy ride at the carnival. I thought he would be afraid! Ha!!! He laughed the entire time! He thrives on adrenaline!!! Boy, am I in trouble!!!

Mr. Independent even likes to ride the roller coaster by himself!

3 generations gathered around a hay stack... it doesn't get any more redneck than that!

Oh wait, it just did... now we are gathered around a big, green tractor.

How do we put the bait on???

Zip lining on a swing, another first for Mr. Independent... NO FEAR!!!

This is a good picture! We are on a hayride!

I know, let's let Doodle Bug lead the way through the corn maze!

Anybody know where we are?

We're soooo lost, let's just take pictures!

Well, Daddy, I think we should turn around!

Will somebody wake me up when my brother finds his way out of this maze?

we can take a ride on my BIG green tractor,

we can go slow, or make it go faster

as long as I'm with you,

it really don't matter!

Doodle Bug's and Jitter Bug's family!

I'm pirate Jake!

My Landlubber, Picaroon, and my Treasure. (look up Pirate slang to figure out who is who!)

She's my treasure!

Fall Fun!!

Where has 2011 gone?

I can't believe it is October already!!!! The Pumpkin Patch is here, so we took the two little bugs and snapped some pictures. Here is our photo shoot...

Remember in the previous posting I mentioned that Doodle Bug lost his 2 front teeth? Well, if you look real close, you can kind off see the gap. My poor guy!

D.B. loves picking out just the right pumpking!!

Found it!!!!

Here is Jitter Bug's first visit to the Pumpkin Patch!!! She was all smiles and loved every second of it. A far cry from her brother who has to be bribed with 15 minutes of extra iPad use if he poses for a few pictures!!!!

Just in case your forgot, here is a picture from Doodle Bug's first visit to the Pumpkin Patch. This is one of my favorites!!!

"Mommy, this tastes so good!!! You should try some!"

After picking out the perfect pumpkin, we went home and Doodle Bug and Daddy started cooking. They were frying a turkey for their 2 girls!

"I'm ready to help! I have my apron and my mits on!!!"

It turned out to be one of the best turkeys we've ever had!!
