Fall fun

Pumpkins! Pumpkins! Fall is such a fun time! The weather finally cools off and there are so many fun things to do. We went to the fair, a wedding in Maryland, welcomed a new cousin to the family, dressed up lots of times, and got a new puppy! Colby got to pick his pumpkin out of a real pumpkin patch this year, and he had multiple opportunities to dress up in multiple Halloween costumes. He even won a prize for his Chewbacca costume (even though the judges thought he was an ewok). He also thought it was pretty neat that mommy came to his school to do crafts for his class Halloween party (we decorated treat bags, and made spiders with egg cartons and pipe cleaners). He was a cowboy for "trunk or treat" at the church where his pre-school is, and for trick-or-treating with the neighbors. Trick-or-treat was fun after he figured out we didn't get to eat each piece of candy as it was handed out; eventually he was OK with saving it for later in the pumpkin mommy carried for him!
