Our Family Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Yesterday (Fri.), Jason and I took the kids to a local pumpkin patch. We usually go to Briley's Patch for Strawberries (in the spring) and Pumpkins (in the fall). We decided to go to a new one called Brock's Berries and Pumpkins. It was small but the owners were so nice. Mr. Brock took all of us on a hayride and let us feed corn to the goats. He was such a sweet guy. We had a good time. The weather was nice. We let the kids look at the pumpkins. They had some HUGE ones. We had never seen pumpkins that big in real life before. We took tons of pictures so of course I have added some. It's so hard these days to catch a picture with both kids either looking at the camera or getting them to smile, so these aren't the greatest but are the best of what I got.

I like the sign in back of picture 2. "Goodness Grows in NC"
All 4 of us were "grown" in NC. I guess we are GOODNESS!!!!

Jason and I with the famous huge pumpkins!!

The kids on the hayride. Notice their halloween shirts. Joey's is a Mummy that says "Mmmm, CANDY!!!" And Maddie's is of her FAVE animal, an OWL!!! I love my CUTE babies!!

Look at my two hillbilly kids. I love Maddie's expression. She's so funny. Both of them look so serious.

Here is the real Maddie aka Miss Priss!!! But what a little cutie.

Jonas enjoyed throwing the hay everywhere. He'd rip it out of the bales and then throw it and laugh. He loves being destructive. My baby boy!!!

Here's a picture of the goats that we got to feed corn too. The kids really enjoyed it. I don't have any pictures of them doing it but I have a video, though it's too long to add on here.

Well that was our trip to the pumpkin patch this year. We enjoyed it and we all have our pumpkins and are ready to carve them. It will be interesting to see what we all decide to carve them into. Maddie is requesting an owl again this year, which is no surprise. :o)
I'm glad to have this fall weather here. It's just so refreshing after that hot, humid summer!! HAPPY FALL YA'LL!!!!!

5K for Leo Jenkins Cancer Center

Last weekend, Jason participated in a 5K . It was to raise money for the Leo W. Jenkins Cancer Center here in Greenville. When we all got there we found out that the kids were able to participate in a Kids Dash, in which Maddie did. Here are pictures of Jason during his run...

Here are the pictures of Maddie during her Dash. She was the youngest participant.

I just want to say how proud I am of both of them. I was so extremely proud of Madison. She was so into it that after she had finished she wanted to run some more. What a cutie!!

Drinking and Driving

Jonas likes this little John Deere Buck Truck that Sharon got him. Here's a couple of pictures that I caught of him riding on it.

Look at that smile!!! Awww, I could just eat him up!!

And yes, here's the evidence of his DUIm (Driving Under the Influence of Milk)!!! We started him early. Hope we can break this habit before it shows up on his record. LOL

Check out what his shirt says...My Daddy's a Stud too. I love this shirt. I bought it even before he was born. I had to have it. I just knew he was going to be a cutie just like his handsome Daddy!!! ;o)

My Little Dancing Queen

Today was Maddie's first day in Tap and Ballet. As some of you know, she has been taking gymnastics, though she wasn't to happy about it. She was excited about it initially but when she started going she didn't like it. She does have 2 weeks left of gymnastics but we went ahead and started her in dance classes. So like I said, today was her first day...and she LOVED it. She left there saying she wanted to go back next week. I was so excited, she never said that about gymnastics.

Well here are some pictures of her all decked out and ready for class. Isn't she precious?!?!?!?!

She's really good at dancing on her tippy-toes!! Maybe we'll have a little ballerina, yet!!

Here are her pink tap shoes. She's the only one with pink ones but she ADORES them. They are pink with glitter, it just screams MADISON!!! LOL

Maddie walking into the dance building. She was so ready to go that she told me that she could go all by herself. Already to big for her pink lil' britches!! LOL

Maddie with her other dancing friend just as class was starting.

Maddie had a great time and loved it. She looked so cute all dressed in pink. PINK leotard, PINK tights, PINK tutu, PINK hair ribbons, and 2 pairs of PINK Maddie would say, She was PINKILICIOUS!!!!
