When we got to my parents house my dad was raking the lawn. I was excited because last year at this time James and Harrison played in the leaves at my parents house and I knew they would have so much fun doing it again. And you would be amazed what will turn up while you are raking your lawn. Just ask Nathan. Wallet's do magically reappear. Anyway, the boys had a great time. They chased everyone with leaves, got buried by leaves, and threw leaves on the parts of the lawn that were just raked by Grandpa and then laugh, laugh, laugh as Grandpa got 'so mad.'

Can you believe the difference a year makes. Bennett and Kaitlyn were being propped up by leaves and a hidden pumpkin for those pictures! Now Bennett's mowing the leaves.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention the pie. And it was a good pie. But you would think that Harrison had just been given a free trip to the moon. He was so excited about that apple pie. And we had to have it before quiet time. What a goof. He kept saying 'Mmmmm, piiiiiiie.'
Pumpkin carving was the last great task for the day. I don't know how I got stuck gutting and carving the pumpkin, but I did. We purposely didn't do this on Saturday so that the dad's would have to do it on Sunday. Hmmmm...
This picture isn't great. James was not sad like this picture suggests. Or maybe he was. We had been trying for a while to get them all to smile and look at the camera at the same time. Aren't they used to us taking photos of them yet?!!!
