A few pictures

I know I've been really behind on the blog, so here is a bunch of pictures showing what we have been doing lately. Some are from a couple months ago, and some are from this past week.
Here is a picture of Keely after she discovered the box of sweet corn cobs when we were putting up corn a few months ago.  She couldn't pass up eating the tips and sucking the juice of the corn!
 Brooks has been playing a lot of sports...especially basketball after he got a KU Jayhawk shirt!
 Keely has become quite the little pest and loves to tickle and mess with her brother.  Sometimes he's a good sport about it, but most of the time he isn't too impressed with the pestering!
 Brooks has also been playing a lot of football.  He wears his Husker jersey almost every day. 
 One day Brooks needed something to do, so I got creative and made him a tub of cloud dough.  It's just flour and baby oil mixed together.  He LOVES it! I let Keely play up on the chairs with him for a little, but she made quite the mess and managed to fall off the chair, so needless to say, cloud dough has been strictly a Brooks thing after that first day!
 We've been out to check out harvest a couple of times this fall.  Brooks and Keely both loved the picnic supper.  Brooks and Blake have ridden a couple rounds in the combine and Brooks has really enjoyed that again this year.  It hasn't worked out right yet for Keely to get to ride, but maybe sometime yet this year. 
 I think Keely thought the field corn would taste like sweet corn! She was hoping!
 Halloween costumes this year...This is the first year Brooks hasn't cried about his costume! Maybe it's because he plays a football player daily! :)  But at least he let me draw the black lines under his eyes to make it a little more than just wearing a jersey! Keely loves her cheerleader outfit and likes to say 'touchdown!' while Brooks is playing or we are watching a game on tv.
 We carved just one pumpkin this year.  Brooks was excited to pull out the seeds
 He got right after it!
 Keely did not enjoy the process very much and with cutting some molars these past few weeks, she has had her fair share of crabby moments! We did however get a good picture of her with the final product.  You can kind of see her tear streaked face, but at least she's smiling! Her favorite word these days is 'puhkin' 
 In the past couple of days Keely has learned to climb up our kitchen chairs and join Brooks playing on the counter while I make supper and work in the kitchen.  It's nice not to have her at my feet and pulling on my leg, but she doesn't quite understand that she could hurt herself if she falls and is a little careless up there! She has enjoyed Brooks' piggy bank and putting coins in over and over again.
 Playing with daddy before bed!
 Lastly, Keely LOVES Cheyenne.  Especially when we let her in the house for brief moments at a time.
