Hayrides, Pumpkins & A Little Halloween Fun...

A couple weeks ago my mom's family , the Boetsmas, got together for the annual fall party complete with hayrides, pumpkin picking and hot dog roast. The weather was a little chilly but we had fun anyway. Dave and I were able to take Garrett on his first hayride.
Garrett was all bundled up in his fleece and blankets. Must have been comfy and warm since he was sound asleep.
My grandma Boetsma (Jenna calls her grandma great) enjoyed some cuddle time with Garrett. She LOVES her family and even at 92 she can't wait to hold all the babies, which seem to be born frequently! Garrett is great-grandchild #60!!! We are so blessed to have our spunky and young at heart grandma. She is a wonderful blessing in our lives.

Jenna had to hold Garrett for a snapshot with all the pumpkins.
Jennas favorite part of carving the pumpkins was cleaning out the guts. After decided what she wanted carved on it Dave and I were stuck with the actual carving...I guess that's what happens to all parents.
Our little pumpkin posing between the pumpkins...too bad he's not so little anymore!
Our Tinkerbell...we had to put lots of layers on under the costume in order to keep her warm but she loved the costume anyway.
Garrett was as sung as a bug all warm in his ear of corn costume. I'm a little biased but he sure was one cute piece of corn!

Uncle Brad, Aunt Nae and Allee came to our house to trick-or-treat. Jenna should have been a farmer to make it a farm theme but that wasn't going to happen. The girls had fun getting all their candy with Dave and Brad (despite being very cold) while Danee and I hung out at the house with Garrett and passed out candy. It's been a great few weeks doing some fun family things!
