Well, we closed on our house on Oct. 15 and have been feverishly picking out paint colors and updating stuff around the house. We still have a bit of painting to do, but it’s coming along nicely and I’m so excited how it’s all turning out! Luke’s room is going to be especially cool. My brother will be in town next week and he will be helping us transform our pretty-in-pink-tiled bathroom into a light and airy bathroom. Yes, I watch HGTV. “Light and airy” makes me happy.

Pumpkin Patch

This weekend Chad's sisters came for the weekend to celebrate Chad's mom's birthday. We all ventured out to the pumpkin patch and corn maize. Chad navigated us through the corn maize, we went on an adult-sized slide, shot baby pumpkins with a giant sling shot and lots of other fun stuff. Luke, little trooper that he is, got his first tooth during all the fun and a bout with diarrhea to go along with it that resulted in two quite impressive blowouts. What's a trip to the pumpkin patch without some extra excitement, right? :) He didn't seem to mind. He also fell in love with his cousin Kayla. He giggles with us, but he just laughed and laughed at/with Kayla all day long. The kind of belly laugh that makes everyone else laugh too. It was a fun day, despite all the poo! It's nice that he can see his cousins more than once a year now!
