Pumpkin Patch

The kids, my mom and I went to the Pumpkin Patch in Lapoint and picked out some pumpkins, well ended up with way to many pumpkins but had a lot of fun doing it.
Here are a few pics. I love taking pictures in the fall and the changing leaves and the pumpkins are great.

Draydyn and Brendyn hunting for pumpkins

Draydyn loves to make faces

My Dads house

Playing in the hay

My Dad, Joey and the kids

Draydyn checking out his new bike
So we went to my Dads house last weekend, I love to go and see my Dad and step mom, but really wish they lived closer. He lives in Casper, Wyoming and so its not like its just a short drive, but anyways we had so much fun. The kids love to hang out and ride the horses and all the bikes, and they can't ever get into any trouble, I'm sure they look for some of it.
My Dad lives on a HUGE piece of land, with 7 horses and they don't have any more cows or other live stock just 5 cats and a dog named B; just the letter. While we were there my Dad, Joey and Quentyn went to a rummage sale and Quentyn didn't know quit what to think, he has gone to a lot of yard sales and so forth but not a rummage sale, so my dad bought a 20' bike and brought him home, when Draydyn saw this bike he naturally assumed Grandpa bought it just for him and was not going to leave there without that bike so we loaded it up in the van on the day we left and brought it home, he loves his new bike that Grandpa Davis bought just for him.
They played in the hay barn, Draydyn was always falling down and thought that was the coolest and just kept falling, more on purpose I believe than clumsiness. We hung out a little with my brother, sister in law and their 3 kids, met them at the Haunted House and went through with them in the little kids not scary, so we went in the adult one and it was AWESOME, so I went again after going with Joey and my brother. Then I went with my sister in law and nephew Dylan and tried to take Quentyn he was so scared he never made it past the beginning of the haunted house, he was dead weight on the floor and I couldn't get him off the floor for anything and I laughed so hard at him I almost peed my pants. I felt so bad well kinda that Quentyn was so scared and freaked out but it was fun taking my sister in law in it because she hates being scared and I love to scare people and I love to get scared and go to Haunted Houses, it is such a thrill.

Draydyn and his mohawk

So one morning Draydyn was so worried about his hair looking cool and he said that he wanted his hair to be gangsta hair nad to look cool and so I said oh bud we should give you a mohawk and so while I was trying to convince him into letting me do it, and it did take awhile, he wasn't real sure about it. He finally let me do it and I have to admit he looked super cute with his hair in a mohawk and so he looked in the mirror and didn't really know what to think and he said he looked stupid and everyone would laugh at him, I kept telling him that he looked adorable. But then he messed up his hair and then Shelby came down and I was telling her about the mohawk and she wanted to see it and so he finally let me fix it again. I personally think he looks adorable and I'd be good letting him wear his hair like that everyday, but not Draydyn.

Quentyn's last football game

Yesterday was a great day, even though it was cold and I had the flu. Quentyn's football team the Vikings were the only team in the Basin that was Undefeated in the City leagues for tackle football. They went to the super bowl and kicked butt. They played the Cowboys; it was cool because they were able to play on the High School football field, with a announcer and the boys thought it was awesome because they even had the scoreboard. They won with a score of 36-14. Quentyn is #25.
Okay and so when I went to take pictures of course the darn battery died and so a friend that I have had for a long time was so nice to take pictures and emailed them to me. Thanks so much Tera.
I have to admit that I am sad that the season is over, I love to watch Quentyn play sports and he is so very good at them. I'm not real sure who likes to have him play more him or me, I wonder if I was more excited that they won or Quentyn. I was lets just say so darn excited that they won that game and kicked the Cowboys' butts.
