Wishing for Fall

Being from Missouri leaves much to be desired out of Fall and lets just say, North Texas is not cutting it! This weekend we decided it was time to stop denying that this, in fact, was north Texas's version of fall so we packed up the fam and went to the Pumpkin Patch. In honor of the occasion and the supposed "cold front" we decided to all dress in long sleeves just in case. We had to cut our trip to the patch short because we were all SWELTERING! It was really hot but all in all we had a great time and Titus loved it. He was way into the tractors, more so than the pumpkins or scarecrows this year.
Here are some pics and somethings to note as you look: 1) we have a dilemma, Titus is to skinny for anything bigger than 2T but too tall for anything shorter than 3T, this is not a problem in the summer with shorts, in fact the shorts he wore to church today were 18 months! But when he is wearing jeans...its an issue! 2) Vernon is wearing cowboy boots. 3) Titus really wanted a yard ornament scarecrow instead of a pumpkin and since it was only 2 bucks verses the crazy prices of pumpkins we caved. 4) We believe Titus has the gift of praise dancing. He often breaks out in dance when he hears music, only it almost always includes waving something in the air, in this case, the scarecrow acted as his praise banner. Give Him Praise!

All I can say is praise God for adjustable waist pants! :)

Great photos! There was a scarecrow inside Boston Market on our way back from MO, and Ladan FREAKED OUT!!!!! I think they're at the age now where their imaginations run a bit wild.

These are great pictures Amber. We just went to a pumpkin patch this week and had a blast. We have the same jeans problem with Tobey. He can wear 12-18 month shorts but the jeans in those sizes are way too short. He needs a 2T but they just fall off his tiny waist. I found some at Old Navy that have an adjustable waist and they are great. I love the praise dancing!
