There is a fun park just a quarter of a mile from our house that we walked to yesterday.  Ben rode his bike while I pushed the other two boys, and we had a fun picnic.  Swings seemed to be the hit this visit to the park, and Ty was laughing most of the time.
Notice the drool--Yes, Ty is teething and is constantly sharing his drool with everything.

Alec is always trying to make every picture of himself unique.
Ben is learning to pump on the swings, but for some reason he still can't keep going.

Pumpkin Picking

Ben's preschool took a little field trip to Linder Farms, and I came along with Alec and Ty.  We got to go on a hayride, pick pumpkins, go on a straw and corn maze, and color.  The kids loved it, and now we will have some fun pumpkins to carve.  Ben loves his little preschool class he goes to 2 times a week.  He is getting so big too fast, I can hardly believe it.

Finally Settled

Old Rental
We moved into this rental planning to live there for 3 months--we ended up there for 6 months instead.  We were very happy to leave the weed patch that lined a busy road, but we were grateful to have it while we did.  It served it's purpose and it helped us wait for the house we wanted.  We are also really enjoying our new house since the rental was less than ideal.
New House
This is the home we closed on the end of September, and we love it.  It was a miracle that we were able to get in a home with the market the way it is.  Lets just say there was a lot of road blocks along the way, but with the Lord's help we were able to get into the perfect place.  It is so nice to live in a place that actually looks clean after you've cleaned it.  The boys have a fenced in yard that we love with grass!!  We've done a little painting since the boys couldn't sleep in a purple room, but other than that it is in really good condition.  It is nice to be home, and have all our stuff in one location.
