Fall Weekend

It really turned to fall this weekend in Central Ohio complete with a really cold and windy day on Saturday and even some sleet.  Of course this was the day we had planned to go to the pumpkin patch with Andrew's brother, wife and their two girls.  We still managed to find some beautiful pumpkins and had a nice time walking around.  Poor Jeanette had to stay in the stroller however bc it was so cold.  I will have to snap some photos of her this week in the adorable Halloween outfit I got her to wear for our outing.

After the pumpkin patch, we headed up to have dinner with some of Andrew's family and celebrate his parents 70th birthday.  They were both born on October 3rd in Columbus at different hospitals and have known one another since the 3rd grade!  I also started decorating the house for fall/Halloween!

There were 140 candles on the cake for their 70th birthday.

Sue is wondering if the cake will catch fire and Bob is too
amused to care :)

At the pumpkin patch

Poor baby Jeanette all snuggled in her stroller at the pumpkin patch.
Jeanette also learned a few new tricks this weekend.  Just when I was getting used to the idea of her crawling she started pulling herself up on things.  We now have the crib as low as it will go and we really have to keep an extra eye on Jeanette.  It's so hard to get things done with her being into everything.  I am still using the exersaucer to contain her so I can cook or do dishes, but nap time seems to be the best time to get things done these days.  

Jeanette is also able to sit up on her own a lot better now and can pull herself into a sitting position which she's never done until recently.  I got this basket for her toys which she now loves to dump all over the floor.  It seems like she grew and changed a lot over the weekend.

Sunday was our typical day trying to get things done around the house and running errands.  Sunday was also Andrew's birthday and he insisted that we not do anything special.  We had a nice dinner together and I got him a new OSU sweatshirt.  We both have a terrible addiction to sweat shirts and jackets so why not add to the collection!

This week is going to be a little nuts and I will have an awesome update next Monday.  I can't reveal much now but I hope that everything goes well with what we have planned!  

Hope everyone had a great weekend and has a great week!!!
