For Fall break we headed out east to Alabama to visit my family. The kids had a blast and I loved being with everyone. It is so fun watching these kiddos play and get along. They might be wild and crazy, but they love each other. What more could you ask for?

They loved helping my mom out in the kitchen. Look at James in his pretty apron.

There he is, I bet you were wondering if you'd see him. He's getting so big, but this is pretty much all he does.
Delaney puts together the jazziest outfits. She wore this one out to dinner.
Delaney's blanket had to be washed. So James brought her Holly's blanket to cheer her up. She actually carries Holly's around all the time and Holly uses Delaney's. But every once in a while, she wants the one intended for her. And of course she wants it once it's thrown into the wash.

We went to a pumpkin patch at Old Baker's Farm. It was so much fun, but a cold, cold day. First stop was lunch.

These kiddos chowed down.
We rode some fake horses. This is such a cute idea, btw. These are old tires cut out to be horse swings.
Then we rode some real ones. While these two rode, James would intermittently say, "YEE-HAW!" and Delaney would follow it up with, "Horsies!" as she waved her arms up and down.
Matthew thought the pile of horse poop was pretty funny.
I love my sisters! We are so lucky that we get along so well and have so much in common. One night we stayed up until 5:15 a.m. watching ANTM and Vampire Diaries. We only got about 2 hours of sleep each. Julianne may have gotten more, since she doesn't have a baby to get up with. On just two hours of sleep, we spent the entire day shopping. Go ahead, say it, we're rockstars. I wish we lived closer to each other!
Jacob slept the whole time.
We went through a corn maze. It was such a fun one. The ones I've been in are super easy, but this one actually got us lost a few times. The kids loved it and we were all a muddy mess by the time we were done. But it was well worth it.

The End.

I wanted to cry when it came to an end. I didn't want it to end. Just keep on going and going. We miss you guys. Can't wait until Christmas!
