Why does my favorite season always have to be the shortest as well!! Although the weather is still beautiful out i have a feeling it wont be like this for long. We had a blast this fall! K-state football, Aiden's first halloween,  weddings, birthdays, spending time with family and some very good news for mike!! Aiden could care less about his first pumpkin carving experience but thats okay, i made him a little monster on his pumpkin that turned out being so hard to carve but in the end looked decent. We got to spend the day before halloween with mike's mom in hanover and marysville. We visited great grandma shirley and then headed to the black squirrel festival in marysville. We TRIED to get some cute shots of our little monkey at a nearby pumpkin patch but aiden was having nothing of it. We entered him into a costume contest and of course he SHOULD have won but that may just be me being his bias mommy :) Halloween day we headed to El Dorado and spent the day with nana jana, aunties amy and sarah and cousin pax. We went to Walters Pumpkin Patch which was AMAZING and then after naps took the boys trick or treating. They had a blast and looked so cute being pulled in the wagon!

Sadly K-state Football is over :( We actually never took aiden into one single game, i know we're horrible parents!! Im bummed and wish we would have but he is just at the stage where sitting still is not an option so i didn't even want to attempt it. I regret it now but he did get to experience some tailgating and we were decked out every saturday in our purple and watched the cats on tv at home or at willies!! Next year we'll be living in kc but will definitely bring aiden back for a game and im sure he'll enjoy it much more. My nephew pax is a year older than aiden and he REALLY enjoys the games, he is actually obsessed with football AND bill snyder, its so cute!! Hopefully when aiden understands a little more next year he will feel the same way!


  1. :*( I don't want you guys to move!!! I'm excited to have somewhere to stay in KC but it seems so much farther then Manhattan (even though I think its only like 30 min. farther). Better buy a house with like 5 extra rooms so Amy, me, and our kids (someday for me) have a place to stay!

  2. agreed, buy a big house and we can all come stay with you :) We can take turns doing holidays once we finish our basement and have more room.
