My oldest son was my assistant for the day. He would stand behind me and make rabbit ears to my head. Or do the whole where are you, peek thing to get the kids to laugh. He did such a good job. I think this is my second or third year taking fall pictures. It's fun to go back and look at the old ones. I told Jason that the folder I have of the family is so big that I can't burn it to a disk all at once. I'm going to have to break it up. I love it.
Then we headed over to my brother and sister-in-laws for the birthday party. It was nice to see everyone again. And the kids where excited to play with each other again. I'm amazed at how well they get along and play with each other now. For awhile there the joke in the family was seeing who would get hurt first.
We had a wonderful meal of tacos, rice, texas eggrolls (that I burnt myself trying to fry), and different dips. Sooooo yummy.
Then we opened presents. I of course being the naughty aunt that I am snuck a couple gifts in that I probably shouldn't have. But she loved them and it's all that matters. Take a look.
Barbie. What little girl doesn't love a Barbie????
Ok, here is the first of the naughty gifts. If you know me then you know I love me my Pop Rocks. So I of course had to give them as a present. Shelly you will have to take a picture of her as she is eating them. I want to see her reaction. : )
And last but not least. Chocolate Covered Donuts!!!!! See how much she loves them. She's hugging them. Oh man this girl is so related to me it's not even funny. She also loves chips. I was going to add those to the bag, but I didn't want to go to far. : )
And the big gift of the night.
A new bike!!!!
After the gifts we had cake and then went outside and the kids had a pinata. It was one of the new kinds where you just pull the string. Instead of hitting it and each other in the process.
Once all this was done the kids started to get out the gifts and play some more. Jamie decided to get in on the fun.

More of the edges.
This is the full blanket.
This is Cory's blanket. I have all the squares stacked on top of each other right now. Just waiting to sew it. I'm in the middle of another project, so sorry, but it will have to wait a little bit longer.

Apostle Islands in Lake Superior
Boys Messing Around the Shore Line
We did find a little carnival area for the boys to go on some rides. They were happy with that. I don't think they were to impressed with the rest of the place.
I was told about another pumpkin patch the other day that is near us. This one sounds more like what I want. So now I have to see if I can talk Jamie into going for another drive this weekend.

This was right next to the dock. It looked like the steam was coming from the shore, going out to the middle of the lake and then rising up. It was so bizarre to me. I have never seen that before.
Sun coming up around the point.
Can't even tell you how much I love this picture.
Sounds like we might be going to an apple festival this weekend. I'm hoping to get some good pictures of the boys. Then you can see how big they are getting. I measured Jakob the other day and he is only a foot shorter then me now. That's just not right since he is only 7 and in the 1st grade. By the time the boy is in 6th grade he will be taller then me.
