Rachel posing in her Thanksgiving dress with the red tights she insisted on wearing. She tried to talk me into letting her wear these red tight when she wore a dress to school the other day, which didn't match at all - she didn't care she wanted to wear the red tights. She was very happy to be able to wear them on Thanksgiving, much to Aunt Katie's disappointment.

One morning the kids were eating breakfast and I thought Michael swallowed his spoon, he started sputtering and making all this comotion. Here there were several deer in our back yard. It looked like a mom and 3 babies. A week or so later Michael saw the Daddy deer - he knew it was the dad because it had horns. It is really cool to see them - we are such city folks, trying to get accustomed to country living.
In October we went to the Gale Pumpkin Farm. A tradition we do every fall. We take a hayride to the pumpkin patch where we pick out and cut our own pumpkins off the vine. They also have a little train ride the kids look forward to. I think this might be Nick's last year for the train, he's getting too big to even get in the thing.
