hey pumpkin

It's been an exciting week for us!  PPS takes a load of time off during October... a variety of inservice days and parent-teacher meeting schedules.  Both Owen and I got great reports from out teachers!  I am a good listener, a great helper and am doing very well with my reading and math skills... I just need to speak up for myself a bit more.  Owen is rockin' the math and is still doing well with his reading and writing... he has to work on the appropriate time to speak-up.  
Previously if O. had a day off from school, he would hang out with the folks at work and was great about it... but since we are now both subject to the pps schedule Dad took most of the week off to hang out with us.  We did loads of errand, you know, important things like hanging up spider webs all over our tree.
 Stocking up on mustaches
 and heading to the park
 and finding perfect balance!
 We also celebrated Back to the Future week by watching the trilogy, one each day we had off... and we loved it!

This weekend was busy for the folks, lots of meetings and things to do, which we were pretty good about tagging along with.  We made up for it with a super fun pumpkin carving party with our friends!  This may be the what is it folks... the seventh annual carving fest with these great friends! 
 This year, more kids did even more of their own carving and then were great going off to play on their own with fairly minimal adult supervision, which made for a very happy crew all around!

 Everyone pitched in for a great dinner, loads of roasted veg, popovers, snacks!
 and some really great pumpkin designs

 and pumpkin grins!  During one of the movies, I just pulled out my second top tooth... it wasn't even that loose but it popped right out!  Perfect for a jack-o-lantern grin!
