Dave and Christel's visit

My brother Dave and his wife Christel came for a visit! Christel's first time here as a married- to-a-Canadian. They haven't been here since Brookie's baptism, so it was about time!
Christel had never been to Toronto, so we decided to go, and 10 minutes later were all piled in the van. We went to the Old Spaghetti Factory for supper and weren't home til about 10ish, (the poor girls, aren't we mean parents~!) Good food, good family, good times. I love my big bro. And Christel's all right. Just kidding, she's amazing.




Winter on Sunday, Spring again today.

This picture was actually taken upside down... that's why it might look a little funny. Those are my feet behind her as I'm taking the picture...Not that you really needed to know that, I guess. :0)
Anywho, On Sunday it was quite chilly out. We got all bundled up for the first time this fall/almost winter. Brooke actually kept her hat on! Amazing!
Nothing exciting to share, just thought Grandma might like to see her girls all winterized.


Geneva thought it was hilarious that Brooke was pushing her!

Dress up day!






We like leaves



OHHHH how I love fall. I love watching the girls play in the leaves, picking them up one by one and examining them or grabbing them by the fist-full. I love that fall-y smell in the air, I love that it is cooler, I love going to walks in the woods, I love and thank God for creating such BEAUTY!

Mid air shot.


Pumpkin Carving time!

Brookie was a lady bug for Halloween. Complete with ready-made antennas.

Geneva was a monkey. Most little girls are princesses, fairies, etc. My child was a monkey. A bit more true to nature perhaps? :0) These are her friends Jacob and Kaelyn who came trick or treating with us. Along with Rueben, Anneka, Isaac, Hannah, Isaiah, Judah, and Asher. It was a bit crazy here on Wednesday night! Lotsa fun though.

Deep in thought.



"Oooooh"
