Halloween Pumpkins and a Lion

Our Pumpkin Carving Helper
Nene came to visit us for the long weekend which started off with some fun Halloween activities of carving pumpkins and trick or treating. Uncle Charlie came over to answer the door while we headed out to trick-or-treat at a few neighborhood houses with Cooper. This year we made Cooper a lion costume so he could do his adorable lion impression for anyone who asked.
First of the candy loot
Cooper made it to 6 houses which was way more than the one we thought he would have the patience for. He really enjoyed knocking at the doors and carrying his pumpkin basket.

Pumpkin Patch

Daddy was able to get home from work a little early today so we took advantage of the sunny weather and hit a local pumpkin patch.

Cooper was quick to figure out that the patch was near an airport and pointed out all of the planes flying overhead.
This picture makes me smile, something about it reminds me of a gopher

Returning to the barn with our loot

Patiently waiting to purchase his new pumpkin friend. Who can resist that face!  

PEPs Costume Day

Nolan, Hannah, Cooper, Austin, Jack, Luca and Madeleine
We are quickly learning that there will always be some tears when toddlers are wearing costumes. This was the best picture of this years costume PEPs gathering. Last year they were so much less mobile. Cooper is a lion this year to highlight his amazingly cute “roar”.
