This past weekend Brooks had his first experience with carving a Jack O Lantern. Since the Halloween season has begun, we've been pointing out the 'funny face' pumpkins all over town. Brooks thinks it's so much fun! He also loves the big plastic ones we are selling at Ace. While I'm ready for the Halloween season to be over (I hate all the scary movie commercials and other scary things on tv right now...I couldn't even watch college football last Saturday with Brooks without him getting scared from commercials! so frustrating!) anyway, while I want it to be over, there are some traditional Halloween things that have been fun now that we have kids. Making funny faced pumpkins is one of them!
Brooks was so excited!

I know I'm a little behind on my blogs, (especially updates on Keely!) but I'll try and catch up here this week! Anyway, last weekend we decided to take a trip to Smith Center just to get away for a little bit. Brooks was super excited, and when I had him help me pack on Thursday (we didn't leave till Friday afternoon), he got so sad when he found out we weren't going to see Grandma and Papa right that instant! I tried to convince him we would still go, but wow it took him awhile to get over it! We left Friday afternoon, and Keely did so much better this trip than last time. We stopped in Grand Island on the way, and that helped Keely have some time out of her carseat so that she would be able to take 2 one hour naps instead of just one 2 hour (which she never does anymore!) Friday night Blake and I got the chance to go see a movie in Smith Center, and we jumped on that opportunity! It's been awhile since we've had any moments away from the kids! Saturday we didn't do a whole lot, but just enjoyed hanging out and eating at Jiffy Burger (Brooks kept calling it Burger King for some reason, but either way, he likes it!) We also stopped to see the great-grandparents while we were there.

The past couple Fridays, we have gone out to the field for supper and to get in on some of the harvest. Here are just a few pictures of the past couple weeks.
Dishing out the food...
The kids get their own little table. Brooks has really enjoyed going out for a 'picnic'. His picnic food has consisted of green beans, cucumbers, bread, and mandarin oranges that he calls 'peaches'. At least he eats something out there!
