Lucas Gets His Hair Cut

Today, at the age of 18 months, Lucas received his first haircut.  My hairdresser, Amy, did a wonderful job.  The boys and I went over to her beautiful home after church today and we enjoyed an afternoon of haircuts (both boys) and playing with her two boys (ages 3 and 2).  Lucas did AWESOME!  It was a difficult decision to make to get it cut because he has such beautiful red curls, but it needed to be done because it was bothering him.  I'm happy to say that it still curls! :)  Just one more way that my baby is not so much a baby anymore.....

Santa 2013

Today we went to Christmas on the Farm at one of our favorite places, Traders Point Creamery.  We went two years with Nolan before Lucas was born.  Last year we didn't go because unfortunately Nolan was sick so this was Lucas's first year seeing Santa.  We have some great pictures of Nolan from the previous years with pure terror on his face, however this year he was excited and actually wanted to sit on Santa's lap.  The wait was long but Lucas and I held our spot in line while Nolan enjoyed playing in the wet snow with Kevin.  This year Nolan smiled and told Santa what he wants for Christmas...a hammerhead shark!  Enjoy these pictures from our day.

Other fall fun activities

Pumpkin patch

The weekend of October 26 my mom came down for a little visit.  She arrived Saturday morning.  We enjoyed coffee and a little breakfast after her arrival and then headed to Waterman's farm to pick some pumpkins.  It was a very cold and windy morning.  They had different games and activities including a big T-Rex that ate pumpkins, a straw maze, pony rides, a petting zoo, a bounce house, and more.  The boys had a lot of fun despite the cold.  After running around after the boys we had a hayride out to the pumpkin patch where we quickly picked our pumpkins and jumped back on the wagon to head back.  It was a neat place (a bit pricey) and I think we would have enjoyed being there longer had the weather been nicer but we made memories! :) 

Nolan enjoyed climbing the hay bales and going through the hay tunnel maze.

 Lucas just enjoyed running around

Later that day we enjoyed another hayride, a fire, and yummy food at our church's annual fall party.

On sunday our family of four headed to the Zoo for Zoo Boo.  It was a popular activity as the weather was nicer than Saturday and it was the last  weekend for the event.  The boys enjoyed themselves and I enjoyed watching them having fun and enjoying the animals.

Lucas says:  "meeeuuueeewww"

Trick or Treating was rescheduled from Thursday to Friday due to lots of rain and strong winds.  So we invited our friends Dori and Tom over and we enjoyed staying warm and carving pumpkins.  Nolan didn't want to touch the "pumpkin beans" because it was the "yuckiest thing I've ever seen" but he did have fun watching me clean the pumpkins out and helping Kevin carve the faces.

 So proud and excited

Hope you have enjoyed your fall as much as we have enjoyed ours!
