Pumpkin Patch!! (and our first picture of our whole family)

We just had a completely fantabulous day at the pumpkin patch!  We loaded up the kids, along with 2 of the kids' friends, and 2 of our friends, and headed to the farm. The major highlight of this farm is the mountain they have built out of dirt and mulch.  It's big.  Majorly big.  Like 2nd story window big.  They've installed slides down the sides, and the whole thing is fairly safe and just innocent fun, until.  Until your husband decides to sit halfway down the side of the mountain and encourage all of his children to take a running start and leap OVER him.  DOWN the hill.  By the grace of God, no children were injured during this picture shoot.  A good mom would have intervened.  Me?  I whipped out the camera.

This is "my person", Beth.  You know the one.  The one you can count on, call about anything.  The one that has your back, loves ALL of your kids and keeps coming back for more.  (Oh, and her husband, Robbie is ok too).
Hope and "her person", Paige.

All of the kids with their pumpkin picks.
This pic is just cute of Elias and Ishmael.  I love it.  And them.  All is well in our world right now.  Gotta love that.  Gotta praise The Lord for that.  Amazing what a big pile of mulch and a field of gourds will do for ya.....
