Fall, the State Fair, and Thanksgiving ... Oh my!

I should have posted most of these pictures a long time ago. But, I didn't. So I'm posting them now. Better late than never, right? We've had a fabulous fall with beautiful weather. Seriously, it got into the 70's the week of Thanksgiving. You can't ask for nicer weather. I know that many of you that read this blog spent Thanksgiving amid snow and blizzards. It's okay to be jealous. We spend a lot of time outside. The boys love to go and "help" Ken with the yard work. One day, it ended with jumping in the leaves.

Tyler loves to give kiss and to blow kisses. It is very sweet and very cute. We were so happy to catch him mid - kiss.

We were excited when we found out that Ken was going to be able to take a day off and attend the State Fair with us. Tyler loves animals and gets so excited every time he sees them on TV and we couldn't wait to show him the real cows. Of course they scared the pants off him and he buried his head in my shoulder until we walked away. We still had fun though, even if we didn't take many pictures. We are too cheap for fair food, so we settled for hamburgers and shakes from Cook Out later that day. Abraham feeling right at home with the turkeys.

I can almost hear Tyler speaking to us in his special grunt language, making sure we all realize there are dinosaurs.

The prize pumpkins are always one of my favorite things to see.

Abraham was very proud of his eraser that he won by spinning a wheel at one of the booths.

For Thanksgiving my sister Charlotte and her family drove from Connecticut. We hadn't seen them since we drove to their house last year! We had a lot of fun with our full house and Abraham thoroughly enjoyed his cousins. Sadly, these 3 pictures were all we got from the whole trip. I don't know how I let that happen. And honestly, they are the most random pictures ever. We did a lot of fun things, you'll just have to trust me on that.


I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!

Everytime I look at your blog, I am blown away at how fast your boys are growing up! I can hardly believe it! What cuties they are.

Looks like so much fun. We really enjoyed our trip. Glad you got to see Charlotte's family before they move.
