Fall Fun

This is such a fun time of year to have a little one! There's been a lot of fun fall stuff happening lately. Here are some pics to show you what we've been up to. On Friday, our playgroup went to a farm/pumpkin's a new one in town and it's my favorite ever because it's first of all, FREE, and secondly, adorably cute. There was a fun playground, a maize of haystacks, a big hill of hay to play on (or "mountain" to the kids), a catfish pond where the kids could feed the fish, a hayride out to the pumpkin patch where the kids got to pick out a pumpkin, and tractor-pulled "train" rides. It was fun to be somewhere that finally Jonah was at the age where he could do all of the activities. He had a blast.

And, somehow, I'm ending up taking a lot of pictures on the "ch" in "cheese" instead of the "ee" and his face tends to look like this in a whole lot of our pictures:

Last night we went to our church's Halloween block party, and Jonah had fun as a lion. He finally figured out the point of the games (getting candy!) towards the very end of the night, so he didn't accomplish as much as I'd hoped, in terms of collecting candy for his Mommy! But he had so much fun seeing everyone in their costumes. I'll post more costume pictures when actual Halloween comes, but here is what he looked like after I got him dressed at my parents' house to go to church last night:

And I love the back view, with the padded behind and cute tail:

For those family members who want to see Mom's almost-complete redecoration of her hall bathroom, there's a little peak. It's looking really good!!! You can't see the texture on the walls, but it's beautiful. It's really quite a transformation in that room!
