Little helpers caught in action

Owen has been "working" tonight. He found our contractor's caulk gun and was caulking around the door.

And Lilly thought she would help me load the dishwasher. (I was washing some dishes and looked over and she had climbed up and was playing with the bowls in the top before I got her down, of course, I had to take a quick picture.)

Then a little later Owen was helping me vacuum. We were emptying the dirt into the trash outside and on our way back inside when he tripped on a step and ended up with a deep cut and fat lip.

Here he is after we got him all cleaned up.

Evening Stroll

We went to for a bike ride and walk on the trail in town tonight. Perfect fall evening. Beautiful. So fun to watch my kiddos enjoy God's creation. They are so fun. Lilly enjoyed the stroller and playing peekaboo with me as we walked. She even said "aboo." Owen was such a big boy riding his tricycle. He was soaking in EVERY second of it.

Here they are taking a little break down by the river.

2 Little Pumpkins

The other night we carved pumpkins with the kiddos. The pumpkins we accidently grew in our garden this year. (Some seeds must have gotten mixed up.)

Here they are with their pumpkins.

Lilly just wanted to eat hers.

Owen helped to get the goo and seeds out of his and dictated to me what facial feature to carve next on his pumpkin.

The lighting.

Get ready. Get set.

Pretty Girl

Fun in the Leaves

It started like this...

then this...

and finally progressed to this...

Our adventurous boy loved every minute of it!

Eventually, Lilly ventured over to see what kind of fun she could have in the leaves, too.

But she preferred to WATCH the boys rumble in the leaves.
