Paul had Columbus Day off from school, and it was rainy all day.
So we had a teddy bear picnic inside with the door open so we could pretend we were outside.
We went to the pumpkin patch with our friends and their sweet baby boy.
This boy is GROWING!
Our friends the Phillips invited us over to decorate pumpkins, this is the boy's masterpiece.
Grandpa and Grandma Miller surprised Jared and Paul by coming for a visit. Paul asked grandpa to read this book about airplanes about 10 times. Luckily, grandpa was able to add his own knowledge for a fresh story each time.
Saturday was our ward Chili Cook-off, so these three chefs spent time perfecting our entry.
Paul loves to hold babies, for anyone willing to let a six year old hold their sweet babies.
Sunday was puzzle and battleship with grandma,
while the men did the manly bonding.
Monday was trip to Cabela's,
and the Founder's Plaza by DFW.
You can watch the planes fly in and hear the air traffic controller communicate with the pilots. Besides the part where Paul rolled into an ant hill and had to take his pants off for a few minutes to be sure he wouldn't get stung, it was a great day!
Monday night we had our unofficial trunk or treat, and Batman made an appearance - for the third year in a row!
And this is what fall is all about.
