more fall fun!

It has definitely been a while since my last post. We have been super busy, having lots of fun! After the birthday party at Didier Farm, we painted our pumpkins. It was so much fun making our pumpkins colorful for everyone to see!

 On October 9th, we had the family over to celebrate Syd and Ben's birthday. Everyone had a lot of fun. I  am bummed that I was too busy to take pictures of all the kids playing together. Although, I did get some pictures of them enjoying their birthday cake. I had it decorated with each of their favorite things. They loved it!

 We also took another trip back to Didier Farm. Everyone was so exhausted after the party, that we didn't get to take advantage of all Didier has to offer.We knew we were going to have to go back and I am glad we did!  Sydney and Ben had so much fun on the rides. They especially loved the trucks. They rode them twice, and we had to practically pull them out kicking and screaming.

 We also took a trip to another (much smaller) Pumpkin Farm with our friends (minus Dad because he had to work). We rode the barrel train, looked for gold and played in the giant bouncy house. There were also some animals there and the kids enjoyed getting up close to look at them.

We have definitely been taking advantage of all the fun things the fall season has to offer. We are hoping to try a few other places and activities, but it all depends on the weather. Either way, we are  going to make Halloween Cookies and ghosts this week.

What kinds of things do you do to enjoy fall?

Syd and Ben's 2nd Birthday Party

I have always LOVED the fall! The leaves changing colors, everything is apple and pumpkin flavored, the cooler weather, Halloween and Thanksgiving! What is not to love? But over the past 2 years I have had a new reason to love the fall. It was October 9, 2009 that my two beautiful babies were born! Sydney and Ben have been the greatest gift that I could ever ask for. I look at them everyday and I do not remember life without them. I cannot even begin to describe the love that I have for them, although I am sure a lot of moms know what I am talking about!

It was only fitting that I had fall babies. Now I can take advantage of all the things I love about fall. This year is no different. On Saturday, we celebrated Sydney and Ben's second birthday at Didier Farms. We took a hayride, went in a straw maze and picked pumpkins.

Sydney and Ben had such a fun birthday party! It was a beautiful fall day, full of fall fun!
