Apples, pumpkins and money!


This has been a fun week...as my parents decided to come grace us with their presence from calfornia for the week. And in fall fashion...like everyone else we decided to hit up the u-pick farm. Ashlyn rode a horse named sam.We ate apple donuts,and cookies...and We had a really good time picking apples. Alysse was extremely content to sit in a pile of apples and take a single bite out of each one. Ashlyn was excited to pick the perfect pumpkin. As she went searching for the perfect one she turned over a pumpkin to find a five dollar bill. She was so excited to find the money she ditched the pumpkin idea to look for more money she raced thru the field but was a little disapponited that she didnt find any more... All in all we had a great time enjoying the smell of the apple trees and pickin pumpkins. I love good ol'family fun.... sorry I got a little picture crazy!!!

Cute pictures! so did ashlyn find a random five dollar bill or did you guys place it there for her? score either way but I'm totally going to put a dollar under the pumpkin at the patch we're going to on tuesday :).

Alysse cracks me up and sounds so much like mailee. Even the way she's squatting amongst the apples....mailee is our little squatter too! How fun for you that your parents came for a visit..fun!

I love the pictures! Aren't "You-Pick" Pumpkin Patches just Perfect!! I am so glad you had fun. That is kinda funny about the $5 under the pumpkin. That would have been the pumpkin I would have taken home :) And oh, I so lost the "Twilight" drive. I got the second book but have never read it and decided that I don't intent, too. :(

Don't you just love this time of year?! I really enjoyed your pics and I'm so glad you had fun with your mom.

And...sorry to be a flake but Matt and I were wondering if we could renig on staying at the hotel and stay with you instead. We talked to some of our friends in AZ today and we're going to be taking an "adult only" vacation with them at Christmas time and in order to do so we decided we better penny pinch. Plus it will be easier this way when we get up in the middle of the night to go SHOPPING!
I missed Black Friday last year and so I'm extra excited this year!
