To celebrate Blake's birthday we had pizza and cupcakes.
The kids painted a bird house for grandma's birthday.
Lead did a good job of keeping the paint on the bird house.

It seems that Jamie was trigger happy on the camera, so we will let the pictures explain the days festivities.
Pumpkin Carving - Scott & Zach
The whole crew carving
Stewart saying "cheese" with his finished product
Blake seems happy with the results...
and Jared is even happier.
Guys telling stories about who knows what...
The McCracken Clan
Look out for the pumpkin eating monkey!
Turns out, Monkeys like trains...
I love campfires. Especially, the ones with a cool chimney
Zach and Sylvia playing Cars
Sylvia's 1st pile of leaves
Of course the day went by way too fast, but marks the end of a way too short Summer and Fall. I can't wait until next Spring when we can invite the gang out to the lake again.

Weight - 18lb 9.5oz (<3rd%)
Height - 28.75" (10th%)
Head - 17.5" (15th%)
If she didn't look like her dad, I would really question that she is mine!
Sylvia's latest hobby includes sweeping the floor. She even sweeps under the bed!
You missed a spot!
If you look closely at her nose, you will see beads of sweat. It could be that she is working so hard, or maybe that she is wearing her winter jacket in the house...
This isn't the only broom she likes. Sylvia grabbed our curling brooms and had an absolute fit when we took them away. We may have a future Olympian on our hands.

This weekend was a great one for Minnesota sports fans. Sylvia wanted to join in the fun and get all dressed up for the festivities.
First we watched the Gophers almost win back Paul Bunyan's Axe against those pesky Badgers, but it wasn't meant to be.
Sylvia was a big fan with her Gopher's cheerleader outfit.
The more exciting part of the day was when the Twins won a great battle against the Royals. I think Sylvia's outfit (although rather boyish) was the luck the Twins needed to pull one out against Grienke.
And yes... she was sporting her Twins pride again today as we forced a game 163, which dad and grandpa will be at!
The day wasn't to be spent alone, as Charleen, Michael, and Ben made the trip down to spend 'babysitting' (aka watching sports) and Charleen and Jamie had some quality mom / daughter time.

Shaylan's pool was a perfect size and temperature for the little ones to play in. Grandpa Dan even joined in the fun. Luckily for us he didn't feel like wearing his speedo!

Just a couple pictures of Dad throwing Sylvia around in the front yard. We thought you would enjoy all of the smiles! Happy Friday

On Friday, we headed out to Hutchinson for the McLeod County Fair. It was Sylvia's first fair experience and the first time to see all the live animals up close and personal.
She is really into books with animal pictures now, so this trip through the Children's Barnyard was quite exciting for her.
