October Fun...

I have been reminded what it is like to be a kid again. Living life carefree and enjoying all the small things life has to offer. It's amazing the feeling you get when you just let go and play. I know we all have our moments of getting caught up in everyday life where we rush and lose track of time, but it's simply delightful when you just stop and take in the moment for what it is no matter how big or small.
This month has now become my new favorite! With Austin's birthday, the beautiful colors, and all the festivities, this month has been bustling. Austin and I have had so much fun going on walks, playing with our friends at the pumpkin patch, and most importantly looking forward to the birthday fun this week.

I love this picture...It capture my son so perfectly...all smiles!

This year Austin is dressing up as Lion for his birthday. When I saw this costume on him for the first time, I just lite up. He looked so cute and cuddly. We'll see how long the head piece stays on him....I can already tell it's going to be a challenge!
Last night Austin, my family, and I carved pumpkins for the first time in I don't know how long. It was so much fun to watch Austin look inside the pumpkin and touch the yucky mess inside. After he found the top to the pumpkin he had no desire to play with the inside anymore. He did a pretty good job though figuring out how the top fit on top.

These are my sisters Christy on the left and Mallory in the middle. When we were little I remember having pumpkin seeds fights where we would throw all the insides at each other...good times!
Our finished product and of course I had to make my pumpkin with a one for my little guy:)
