Pumpkins and Parties

October has come and gone, and Miles is already 19 months old.  He's getting bigger and bigger, and there's nothing I want to do except be able to be a part of all of it!

Last month, we had lots of warm, early fall fun.  We went to Michelle & Phil's costume party on the 27th, and I was incredibly sleep deprived because of my gumption to have homemade costumes for Miles & James.  I was up until 3AM sewing, and then spent a good 5 hours finishing items the day of!  (I'm pretty sure that if you look at my B.A., it was not really for Biology, but for a degree in Procrastination, with an emphasis on Crazy Determination!)

The very next day, we went to the Live Oak Canyon Pumpkin Patch, in Redlands with Heather, Richard, Micah, Audrey, Clarissa, and Cannon.  It was so much fun - and it was really hot!  We ate a tasty lunch at In-N-Out, followed by getting lost in the corn maze.  It was a cool setup:  
  • You go in, and they give you a card that has spaces for a code.  
  • When you find each post (A-D), there is a corresponding number, that when filled in, gives you a combination to open a door to the second part of the maze!  
  • Then you have to find four more posts to get the combination to unlock the door that lets you out!

It took FOREVER!  But I had so much fun.

On Halloween night, we went over to Matt & Tiffany's for trick-or-treating --- our one time a year that we hang out with the Specks!  It was great to see the costumes that Tiffany made for Jonas (Angry Bird), and Elijah (Brobie from Yo Gabba Gabba), and to take Miles up to the houses now that he can walk and talk.

Now I have to hide Miles' trick-or-treating pumpkin because he is obsessed with candy.  He hollers "pumbem!" at me, meaning, "Mom, I see my candy, and it is only right for you to give me all of it now."

James was having fun with stickers

"Trick or treat."

"Let's go, Ma!"

"Mmm, milk is the BEST!"

Miles' latest interests:
  • Climbing the curved, stationary ladder at the park
  • Talking in sentences that I can't understand all the time
  • Watching The Chipmunk Adventure (1987) everyday
  • Wearing long sleeves, even when it's not cold
  • Running around in James' cardigan
  • Mojo Jojo from PPG - he is both fascinated and frightened of him
  • CANDY!
