Trick or Treat...

Our mom isn't really big on Halloween... well, she's big on the candy part and the dressing up part - but that is about it. This year we were invited to go to our friend Jack and Jane's house to trick or treat on their block. Their mom does this big thing for their family with food and hanging out.... we were so excited as this was going to be our VERY first trick or treating trip!
Do you notice someone missing in this pic? Yup - that's right - ME! I woke up not feeling so hot on Sunday - and didn't want to do anything but hang with my dad and play video games.... so dad and I played Need for Speed (kinda appropriate don't you think?) while Tony Stewart (Sissy) and Jeff Gordon (Matty Moo) went without us!

Yup! Mom was as shocked AND disappointed as you in Sissy's costume choice! She wanted NOTHING to do with the glitz and glam that she normally sports.... she wanted to be just like her brothers! Matty and Addie were checking out their cool flashlights they got to help keep them safe while roaming the streets begging for candy!

Kinda looks like Matty Moo is smelling sissy... he's actually kissing her.... now, that is what you call good sportsmanship!

She may only be 2 minutes older than her little bro but you can tell by the protective shoulder hug that she takes being the "BIG" sister very seriously!

Don't fear though - sissy added a little bling to her costume... check out all those bracelets.... can you tell that she has a new hobby?

Mom asked Moo what he thought of getting LOADS of candy... well, it looks like he's pretty excited!

They were too excited to pose for a group shot so this is as good as it gets! This is Jack and his little sister Jane.... Matt and Addie came back with a TON of candy and even put some in my bucket that I didn't get to use.

On Monday I woke up feeling fine.... I insisted on wearing my costume and even told mom that I was just going to go trick or treating tonight. I was DEVASTATED that I missed the night. Mom let us all get in our costumes and took us to Hobby Lobby to get some paper for our Thanksgiving Tree project. We got a lot of looks and one kid even told us that Halloween was over...

Of course - mom got another round of photos in... and we all humored her. We LOVE to be in our costumes - so it's a fair trade.

I have to say that I am the COOLEST driver of them all... yup #88 - Junior (I know he changed his car and number but I still liked him best when he was 88).

Mom said she likes this pic... something about reminding her of a Top Gun look... I think we look like we are all heading to the pits... wouldn't that be SUPER cool?

It turned out to be a perfect day EVEN if it was a day late!

Talmachoff Farms...

Well, the weather has finally gotten a little chill in the air - it's all the way down to the high 80's which means Fall is finally here AND it's time for a pumpkin patch! Mom thought she'd get a group shot of us before we left... (and yes, those are cheetah print shoes with a striped outfit. And yes, that WAS a small issue between Sissy and mom ... guess we don't have to tell you who won this battle!)

And we thought that was pretty funny!

Addie's expression says it all... we get SO sick and tired of her and that camera!

I decided to help wrestle Matty and Addie into a good pose so that we could get off our front steps and to the farm... mom wasn't too impressed with the dual choke hold...

As soon as we got there - Moose spotted the pumpkin he wanted and almost didn't even want to check out the rest of the farm.

We finally got him INSIDE the farm - only to discover so many cool things.... like this slide,

And this sweet little horse...

And the entrance to a really cool REAL FULL SIZED maze!

They had a sign that said it takes 45 minutes to compete... and small print that said the "mini" maze was to the right.... Mom started for the "sissy" maze - but we took off in the REAL one!

Wait a minute - didn't we already take this turn? No worries, I will lead the way.

Uh, mom - do YOU know where we are? These stalks were SOOOOO tall we couldn't even see if we were headed in the right direction or not. BUT, about 50 mins after we started - we found our way out. I bet if dad had been with us - we would have made it out in record time. Next year we'll have to make dad ditch work for the pumpkin farm!

And, just like last year - they had the corn kernel pit... always a favorite! Sissy even said she was making a "corn castle!"

I was having so much fun I even flashed mom my heart melting grin... usually I only save this for Kathy Cole (which by the way - you will get to see some NEW pics VERY soon!)

Sissy spotted (hee hee... spotted - get it?) some HUGE tractor tires to play in. We had LOTS of fun making mom go crazy by hiding in them... and not coming out when she called us. It's good for her - she's getting up there - so we have to keep her on her toes!

Don't panic mom... I am right here!

It started to get pretty warm - so we stopped for a water break before hitting the train!

We should have known by this face that Matty Moo was starting to get a little nervous about the train ride while we waited in line.

I was more concerned by the 100's of kids who were in line in front of us! There were tons of school field trips there and they all wanted to ride the train at the same time as us!

The anticipation was almost too much!

FINALLY! Mom made me ride with sissy cuz she's so little... but that's ok cuz she's my bestest friend in the WHOLE world.

Doesn't Matty look like a pro? Yah, well this is the LAST photo of the day because as soon as the train started - Matty decided to FREAK out! He was so scared he stood up to jump out. Mom jumped and caught him JUST in time... Sissy decided mid trip that she did NOT like the train.... she cried for most of the ride. Which meant mom had not one but two 3 year olds who were hot, tired and out of sorts... About 1/2 way back to the swagger wagon - I got tired too and the 3 of us sat down in the parking lot and cried. (clarification - it was Addie, Matt and I crying... not mom although she started laughing that weird kinda crazy laugh that signals she's about to lose it!) It was a GREAT time and mom survived! A total success in my book!
