Trey at 6 months

Trey had his 6 month appt. on Monday. He weighed 16 lbs. 10 oz. and was 26.25 inches. Pretty average boy. Carter weighed 16 lbs. 13 oz. and was 27.25 inches so an inch taller than Trey but that has been the case since birth. Thankfully Brian met me at the Dr. b/c we took Carter along for his flu shot and I wasn't about to try it by myself. Carter did fine...just a few tears. Trey on the other hand has a yeast infection (who knew boys could get them?) that I had no clue about, they tested him for some form of strep and we got a Rx for his excema. It has really helped except for a spot on his cheek...I think we are going to have to go to the dermatologist. It's been there for about 6 weeks and just won't go away. We go to the eye Dr. on Monday for his wandering/lazy eye so we will see what she says. Thankfully Trey is SO incredibly happy and sleeps like champ so none of this stuff bothers him a bit! We tried some solid food this week which he definitely likes better than the rice cereal...he HATES that stuff!

Another Crane's visit

Last night we took our annual family trip to Crane's for dinner and to the Todd farms to look for deer. It was a beautiful night and Carter had fun playing on this tractor while waiting for dinner.

Post Family Farms

Last Friday we took our annual trip to Post Family Farms with my childhood friends. Our group keeps growing and growing and there are 3 more on the way! From left to right, Royce and Jax (Beth's), my boys are between Alyssa and Kaylee (Vicki's) and then our main squeeze, Liam (Jen's). We had to snap a bunch b/4 Jax and Carter dumped off the babies. This one of Trey's pouting face cracked me up. :) We should have taken a pic of us moms too...hopefully next time! First we took some pics of the kids by all the pumkins.

Then it was off to the see animals. Carter was seriously trying to rip the beard off this goat...the kid has no fear.
And of course the pumpkin train! Carter has been asking about it since pumpkins have come out. He loved it.

Then we took a wagon ride out to the pumpkin patch to pick out a pumpkin. Carter picked out enough for all of us. He had quite the pile.

It was a BEAUTIFUL afternoon and we had a great time. We finished the day with pumpkin donuts....they are the best!

Fall Fun

Last week I think we did about every fall activity in a matter of just a few days! It was crazy busy but we had a lot of fun. Just a few more things to check off our list yet. :) Wednesday afternoon we headed to Crane's for our annual apple picking and dinner with my MIL, SIL and nieces. It was a gorgeous day and we had a lot of fun.
The girls were home from Nebraska so we got to do a lot of fun stuff with them.

Kylie, Trey, Karinda and Carter.

Me and my happy boys. :) Grandma swinging the grandkids while we weighed our loads and paid.

Thursday night daddy took a break from work and met us downtown Zeeland for the peddle pull and free dinner. Carter thought it was fun to check out the fire truck.
Friday night we had our annual harvest party at the Bosch's house with the Top (Brian's mom's) side of the family. We first took a hayride and then had to head inside b/c the rain started. Saturday morning we headed to Elhart for Lindy VerBeek's fundraiser. We met Tim, Jen and Liam there and went for a horse and buggy ride.
Once we got home my mom came over and we quick made applesauce while the boys were napping. My mom slaving over the stove.
The finished product! After our applesauce was made we quick woke the boys up from their naps and headed downtown Zeeland for the Pumpkin Parade. It was kind of chilly and drizzly but Carter LOVED it so it was well worth it! And he came home with a bag full of candy! We ran into my cousin Dan and his family so Dimitry hung out with Carter.
Trey LOVED it too...he was full of stories with all the loud noises.
Sunday we celebrated Cliff's 60th birthday. Maybe some of you spotted the birthday wish from the grandkids in the Sentinel. We gave him '60' of several things ($60 gift card, 60 M&M's, 60 green tea bags, etc., etc.) to help him celebrate but I forgot my camera! Here is a pic from Friday night of the cupcakes I made when we celebrated with the Tops at the harvest party.
