Random October

We've been quite busy - which is totally normal around here.   

I thought I'd share some random funnies from October.  

One Sunday after church Andrew put on James' suit coat and did some modeling on the back patio.

Serious look.

Ready for anything!

Matthew had a leaning tower of sandwich for lunch. 

He's not quite sure about it.

Another day he had a "two-face" pb&j.

Two two-faces.

Lunch is a trip around here :)

Earlier in October we bought a couple of pie pumpkins to make pies with.  

Also toasted some pumpkin seeds. 

We had a little blind taste test.

Canned pumpkin on the left and fresh pumpkin on the right.  

For the life of me, I can't remember the results.  I'm pretty sure we decided that canned was better for time and ease.  I think they tasted pretty much the same with more people liking the canned though. 

We had so much pumpkin left over that we did another taste test of "pumpkin pie spice" versus individual spices. 

More people liked the pie made with the pumpkin pie spice better.  

So, we'll be making pumpkin pies with canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice this year for Thanksgiving.

You'll all sleep better knowing that I'm sure ;)

Peter was working hard at school doing a bit of addition flashcards.  

He's calculating . . .

He got it right!

On one of many trips to Target last month . . .

Matthew found a dog - just a statue of a dog, right, Mom??  

Stay tuned for photos from our first ever home school softball game.
