Could it possibly be that time of year again! Our family loves the month of October because of all the fun traditions we do. One of them is of course Vala's Pumpkin Patch. Here is what we did...
Kids sat in the GIANT rocking chair
We posed by our favorite pirate
Kaleb got a sticker stuck on is bum
LeAnna and Austin rode the tractor ride
Kaden got in trouble
Kesa fell in love
Mark discovered a new land
Kaden danced like a pirate
Kaden was a pig leader
Kaden's pig won the pig race and this was his prize
Kesa has been pig leader for at least 9 out of the 12 years that we've gone.
Mark went down the big red slide
Jana decided to go down on her stomach....stupid Jana (blow up picture to see her face)
Kassie did tricks on the jumping pillows
Mark and Kaleb played together
Mark had to take extreme measures to make Kesa happy
Jana let her true self show

I awoke on August 13th with a sense of excitement. Not only was it our 15th wedding anniversary, but it was the first day of school. I hate to admit this, but I think I was more excited about it being the first day of school. :)
After walking the kids over to the school it was all I could do to not run, skip, and jump back to my car. Now don't get me wrong, I love my kids, but after the last two weeks it was definitely time to go back to school.
Kassie the 5th grader
She didn't even look back

Friday morning I arrived at Barnes & Noble around 7:30 so I could be the first in line to receive my wristband. Crazy I know. I felt kind of weird being the oldest one standing in line, but with my competitive immature nature, I was proud to be the first and oldest one. :) The lower left picture shows how excited I am.
Around 9:15pm or so the girls and I arrived at LeAnna's so we could get dressed for the big event. Here we are dressed up as vampires going to a wedding. Kesa is dressed up as Bella (one of the main characters) I was Rosalie, LeAnna was Jane (Volturi) and Kassie was a human friend of Bella. Here we are looking suductive.
The girls having a snack
LeAnna guessing how many blood drops (jellybeans) are in the jar.
What a scratch!
They handed out vampire tattoos and werewolf scratches. Here we are showing them off.
These are the boxes that held our special books :)
LeAnna making out with the werewolf
Looking a little frightened aren't we Kassie!
First in line!
Paying for the books
Yahoo!!! We finally have our books
When we got home I thought I would goof off and take some pictures for Mark. Just because I'm 34 doesn't mean I have to act like it. :)
Mark's sexy woman!
