Fall is here!

We took a little drive Friday and found this beautiful tree covered road. It was so gorgeous with all the trees aglow in red, orange and yellow. I love fall and really missed it living in Texas. You don't really get the major change in the trees and all. We also saw a couple of farms and Eds was pretty excited about seeing the cows. Its so funny how sometimes you just don't notice things. Sometimes your too busy to even see the things right there in front of your face, like all the leaves changing color.

Went to the pumpkin patch and got some pumpkins. Eds ran around and got into trouble-hello nap time!!! And Luke, well he wasn't too impressed but how else can you entertain a 8 month old? They had fun seeing the animals that they had out and Eddie nicknamed their horse Yeehaw. I was hoping to get some mums while we were there, but no such luck. We got a huge pumpkin and I can't wait to carve it out!! I am going to actually bake the seeds this year so that should be fun.

Got quite the scare Saturday night. We were eating dinner and Eddie as always was running around and playing in the living room. Rich walked in the room to find him with an empty bottle of hand sanitizer. It was just a tiny little bottle out of my MIL's purse and she couldn't remember how much was in there but still. We couldn't tell if he drank it our not and being completely scared outta our minds, we quickly loaded everyone up in the car and went to the ER. Of course they called poison control and were told that even if he drank the whole container (5 ml) that it wasn't enough to hurt him and would only cause him to vomit. So a $75 visit to the ER and turns out he was OK. Didn't even get sick or anything leading me to believe he didn't drink it. But better safe than sorry.

My mother in law was here this weekend too. Kinda nice for it to be just here and the boys got some one on one time with her instead of having to compete with all the other grand kids. I am sure we showed her a good time with cranky kids at the pumpkin patch and a night time visit to the emergency room. I hope she enjoyed herself. She didn't know what to do when we wouldn't let her washes the dishes!
All in all a great weekend. Just can't believe that the holidays are around the corner! Time to start getting ready for it all!
