Random Kaity and Joe Moments

"All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth ..."

Lunch at the bakery! Isn't Joe just too cute in his hoodie?

Katie and I made sugar cookies and decorated them while Joe was napping!

Joe loves getting "fuzzy kisses" from Daddy! Jeff is a disciple in the Christmas pageant at church, so he's growing a beard for the occasion.

Fall Festival

This year's fall festival was a "Wild West Fall Fest". Our Sunday School class was in charge of having a haystack for the kids. We piled up a few bales of hay, then tossed in candy and toys. I think it was a big hit! Even the children's minister, Greg, belly-flopped into the haystack. Jeff got his bug running and brought it to have for the "Trunk or Treat". We handed out candy from the trunk in the front. Greg kept threatening to fill the car up with the hay after the festival was over.

As you can see, Kaity, Joe and I dressed as scarecrows. The chicken in the pictures is one of our friends from the SS class, Rachel. She's hugging our friend Kelli, the pirate. I ran out of film so I didn't get good pictures of everyone, but they're in the background!

Burt's Farm Field Trip

Last week, our homeschool group went on a field trip to a pumpkin farm. It was an absolutely gorgeous fall day in North Georgia! The Cospers rode with us and along with several other cars we made our way up to Burt's Farm in Dawsonville. Johnny Pumpkinseed taught us about how the pumpkins are grown and the different varieties. Then we went on a hayride where "Autumn" and "Gourdy" told us some more about the farm and that God makes things grow. At the end of the hayride we got to pick out "sugar pumpkins" to take home with us. (I cooked mine and made yummy pumpkin bread with it!)

After the tour of Burt's, we drove over to Amicalola Falls and ate a picnic lunch at the playground. Then everyone loaded up and drove to the steps to walk to the top of the falls. One of the moms had hurt her back the day before, though, so she and I stayed behind and kept the three three-year olds.

All in all, a beautiful day to be outside, and a great field trip!
