Where the Wild things Trick or Treat

Check out the pumpkin patch this year. :P Brett was so busy this semester, we never made it to a real patch. But we still found some good pumpkins!!

I wish I had gotten a picture of everyone's pumpkins! We had a great concept this year. Unfortunately, no picture. Oh well. Juliet had a lot of fun cleaning out her first pumpkin! And as usual, Brett's pumpkin looked the best! So we got a picture of his, but not even lit up. How lame is that!

Well, I worked really hard on Juliet's costume this year, and I think the concept was lost on a lot of people because I made her pink instead of the traditional Max white. Oh well. It was fun to make. Next year maybe I'll go with something a little more mainstream so she won't be mistaken for a pink demon squirrel.

Happy Bertday!

For Brett's Birthday we went to the English Building to launch his toy parachute men he got for his birthday (from me, along with other stuff! but we didn't launch his other stuff off the english building.)

Then we had warm chocolate melting cake with the Pratts! (not pictured. Sorry Pratts!)

Brett is officially a quarter century old!

Foutzs at the Fair!

Last time we went to a petting zoo, Juliet was terrified of the goats. Not so this year! She was chasing sheep, poking goats, pulling duck heads (just like her daddy!) and sticking her finger into bunny cages (bunnies may bite!).

And although she looks like she is a little scared in this photo she is actually laughing hysterically. Not hysterically like going crazy hysterically. She was very happy.

The lovely girls enjoyed their fresh squeezed lemonade. Hattie wasn't too pleased with finding a seed in hers. Melanie was less pleased to find a bee in hers. No picture included.

Yes this is a deep fried snickers. Neither of us had tried it before. Oh man it was delightful. Brett also enjoyed the deep fried funnel cake, deep fried pepper jack cheese, and deep fried hot dogs. I didn't really enjoy my pulled pork sandwhich. I should have asked them to deep fry it for me.

All in all, a good day!
p.s. and yes, Bensen was there. Poor baby gets no lovin'.
