So here's what's been going on since I last posted:
We took a cold, rainy trip to Eckert's this year to pick apples. It wasn't the greatest weather, but the apples were good this year!
Cleaning out the pumpkin to carve--slimy!
The boys and girls couldn't decide on a pumpkin design this year. The boys liked this one, the girls wanted something more intricate. The boys won this year!
We went straight from Halloween into getting ready for Christmas this year (yes, we celebrated Thanksgiving in between, but I don't have any pictures of that. It was a quick Thanksgiving anyway, and kind of an odd year since we didn't get to see Uncle Scott and Aunt Sherry--they had to stay in TX, or Aunt Coleen because she had pneumonia, and Chase is currently battling HSP which is an autoimmune disease causing lumps on his legs, joint swelling and pain, and upset stomach--what a November!).
We put up more lights in front this year
and did a little on the back too!
St. Nick came Sat morning and left some goodies!
Like yummy big apples....
iTunes cards, and lots and lots of chocolate!
We're getting ready for Christmas though and looking forward to a hopefully healthier new year!
Chase's HSP should go away on it's own in a month or two, but in the meantime he has to see the dr weekly to monitor it. I feel so sorry for him because it causes him quite a bit of pain, and the only thing we can do for it is rest, fluids, and Motrin. Poor kid can't catch a break this year!
