Last weekend we went up to my parents house and on the way back we stopped at the covered bridge festival in Mansfield. It was the last day and I think the nicest weather they had all week. We found the perfect guitar for Leo. He loves guitars, it was one of his first words. It's super cheap and junky and perfect for a 2 year old!

Although I am not looking forward to winter, I do really love nice fall weather. We're getting in the mood for Halloween.

Jesse and I carved our pumpkin early. This is the first pumpkin I have carved in many years and the first time using a kit. Jesse picked out the design and kept close track of my mistakes. He kept telling me to let him know if I messed up because he wanted to see.

This is my latest project. I have way too many ongoing and forgotten projects in this house.
I think it takes me about an hour to do a square and I want to make a blanket. I don't know if I will be able to stick with it long enough.

Other random weirdness in my house.

Quesadillas with cake decorating pens. It is usually hard to get Jesse to eat, but he has always enjoyed eating things that don't want to be eaten. He finds this idea extremely amusing. Especially if his food is saying "no, no please don't eat me Jess..mmphh..." while entering his mouth. Leo loves to laugh with Jesse but doesn't seem interested in eating food with faces. So anyway, this is what I've been up to. You know you were curious ;)
