Early in the month of September Grandy volunteered to take the kids day-camping. Rich decided to join them & since I'm sure most of y'all know how much I just loooove to camp... well, uuummm... let's just say my idea of "roughing it" means there's no room service, so I stayed behind:) But, needless to say they 4 of them had a WONDERFUL "adventure"!
Early in October we celebrated the birthday & life of little Wyatt McDaniel. The gathering was held at the McDaniel's horse farm. Friends, family & even strangers attended to help raise money for the non-profit organization Bridges of Support. While we were there, the kids got to see a horse up close & we had their "portraits" drawn.
One of our favorite things about Fall is all of the fun pumpkin patches. Jett & Delilah really had fun this year... there were TONS of pumpkins, a hay maze, lots of scary goblins & a bounce house.

The doctors instructions for Jett's recovery included keeping him calm (no jumping, running, swimming or getting overheated) for 2 weeks?!?! She's obviously never had a 3 yr old in her close vicinity?! In an attempt to follow her orders, we did a lot of playing in the house... make-believe picnics; coloring; playing with cars & trucks & the occasional wagon ride.
The Anderson Halloween was a HUGE success this year! I decorated the door & Jett & Delilah had a ball decorating pumpkins (& their faces:). I also sent some festive treats to the fire station for the guys to enjoy. On the morning of Halloween we began the day with yummy cinnamon rolls covered in orange icing. That evening, before trick or treating, we had our traditional pumpkin shaped pizza for dinner. Then, we hit the streets with some of our favorite goblins: Clarence, Milagros & Brisa; Kelly, Meredith & Mazzie Clark & Patrick, Michelle & Owen Strottner. We also met up with the Wefel's & their 3 beautiful little girls. Everyone had an absolute ball!! It's going to be tough for me to beat this year's costumes as rock band KISS.

Well, I hope this Fall is finding each of you enjoying every minute. Before you know it Christmas will be here & then a whole new year... Wow!! Until next, HUGS & KISSES from the Anderson's!
