I have tons of pictures piling up, so before we go trick or treating tonight and add to the collection, I thought I should post some.

We've been carving pumpkins and eating lots of candy (lol) to prepare for Halloween. I've gobbled up a whole bag of Indian Corn with just a little help from the boys. They love it as much as I do!

Wade is officially unemployed. I've been a little stressed out about that... I think that's what led to the demise of the Value Size bag of Indian Corn. We have a lot of decisions to make regarding our family's future and it's all very daunting. But, as always, we will survive. So, enough of all that and on to the happy stuff - PICTURES of SWEET BOYS!

Here are a few of my favorite picture mess-ups:

This boy SERIOUSLY needs a haircut! That's one of the first things on our "to do" list now that Wade will be home to help for a little while. {{Hopefully only a little while... we're hoping he gets a job SOOOOON!}}

At the doctors office... The silver lining was, we had our own waiting room. The disaster part was that we had an appointment for 4:30 - they called and asked us to move it up to 3:50 - so we did - and we didn't leave until after 6:15. I had all 4 kiddos by.my.self. Wade got off work at 6 and drove up there to meet me and arrived just in time to hear the dr say the bumps coming up all over Taylor would go away on their own in about 18 months. He has Mulluscum Contagiosum.

I love these shirts... I made each of them one, but I can't seem to be able to get a picture of all 3 - so here's Tuck.

We're all ready for Halloween... Even our candy bowl has a costume:

Last Friday we carved pumpkins at Taylor's school, then over at the Smith's that evening. My arm was sore that night!

This pumpkin has 396 seeds. It was 41" around and it floats - as all pumpkins do.. ;)
Did you know that?

The boys will be 18 months old in about 2 weeks. They are getting so big and so very fast. They climb, and tumble, and destroy and bite, and fight, and love, and play, and figure out ways to get into more trouble. They are so much fun. Here are some pictures from the last week or so:

This stunt never ends well.

Even the wild child gets tired.

They now push this box everywhere to use it to climb on things, they even climb up on their highchair table! yikes.

They play together.

Not even the pictures hung high on the wall are safe... he's working on getting up there.

A picture of deep concentration.

Tucker Monster!

Jumping off the couch onto the pillows.

All my boys.

Running wild at the neighbors!

Carter noticed Tucker running wild and then we all went over.

Whew! Long day.

Trying to figure out that lock.

the light.

This can't end good. Notice Brayden's leg!

Modeling the Halloween shirts I made them. The boys are in size 24 months. They need it for the waist in pants, but they are too long, so unless they have shoes on, I have to roll up their pants.

I can't believe I'm getting these pictures out the same day I took them! Especially considering how busy and incredibly fun today has been. We haven't had this much fun in a long time. It was so refreshing to spend the day outside. We had a picnic, went on a hay ride, played in huge barrels of corn kernels, we got dirty, we ran in the open fields, played with pumpkins, went through a hay bale maze, we pet goats and wampums, watched a sheep herding demonstration, we quacked at ducks and gobbled at chickens and turkeys. We had SO much fun. The babies had so much fun and even though we skipped their naps, they were little Angels. Tonight, they were exhausted. We went all summer without sunburn, but that streaked ended today. They've got little red foreheads, cheeks, and noses. It was a little chilly when we got there, but the last hour the sun came out (you can see we took their long sleeve shirts off when it got hot), but I never dreamed of needing sunscreen. It's not bad, just a little rosier than normal.

Here's much of our day in pictures:
