|Wyatt's favorite part of the festival--the funnel cake|
|I guess the chunkin wasn't exciting enough for Lily. Or maybe she swooned from the excitement of it all.|
|There was a big machine and a mini-one. Each pumpkin was sponsored by a local business or organization. Due to police tape, this was as close as we could get.|
|Favorite pic of the day|
|We bought this hat at the festival. The woman who made it was busy knitting as we checked out.|
|The "fruit" of Wyatt's labor. :)|
|Wyatt is doing a rubbing from a rubber fish. Maybe this was sponsored by the Fish and Game Commission?|
|Lily liked watching other kids doing crafts.|
|The bravest woman at the festival. Yes, that's a real hammer. Wyatt is vigorously pounding a fall leaf so that the pigment will transfer onto the fabric.|
|The thirty minute hayride that probably should have been fifteen.|
|Wyatt stuck his head out of the slats to check out the scenery while Grandma held onto his coat.|
|Lily took turns whining and crying with the other babies on the hayride. At least she had some company in her misery.|
|Finally back to the car. Lily almost made it.|
Sunday we went to the Bellefonte Fall Festival at Talleyrand Park. Although it was the same temperature as Saturday, the lack of wind and multitude of sunshine made for a wonderful day!
|Lily, you look like you're a high-fashion model posing for a perfume ad.|
|Wyatt was excited to try out his duck calling skills that he's been honing for a while.|
|The ducks didn't respond, which disappointed all of us.|
|Lily had a great time. Zzzzzzzzzzz...|
|Wyatt kept trying to toss his pennies into the top fountain but they always bounced off.|
|Wyatt endured a heavy-handed 20 minute personalized sermon to get these balloons. Way to go, buddy!|
Since our weekend was fairly uneventful, we decided to have Bella, Leo, and Priya over on Tuesday for a Halloween-cookie-and-cupcake-making-and-decorating-extravaganza!!
|Notice how clean the island is at this moment...|
|Leo was not that into the cookie decorating. He just wanted to snuggle.|
|Jen stopped by to say hi and we held her hostage for the rest of the evening. THANK YOU, Jen for all of your help!|
|Notice the flour on Grandma's cheek. It was a full-contact evening.|
|Wyatt was a sweaty mess.|
|Wyatt, you help me nowadays by holding Lily in the tub while I scrub her. That makes things a lot easier!|
|STOP THE PRESSES!!! The boy that will only eat unsalted, canned vegetables is eating what?!?!? A RAW carrot?!?!? School lunches finally broke him of his revulsion. Hooray!|
We are headed to a ThrillerFest tonight--more info and hopefully some cool pics to follow. Also today is Wyatt's Halloween parade at school. The hot dog fits perfectly, now. Thanks, Grandma!
Daddy has gotten a cow (a girl elk) and is still hunting for a bull. I asked Daddy how the fishing is going and he reported that the nearby lake is completely frozen over. Oops! They also got about a foot of snow. He's still having a great time and should be home Sunday evening.
