Kyri received some Halloween presents in the mail today. She was so excited to open her mail and see her treasures. I grabbed the video camera after we opened them to record her sweet reactions. Thank you Aunt Jan and Tom and Aunt Sandy and Uncle Steve!! Kyri is one lucky girl!!
We decided to chance the weather and head out to Kuiper's Farm today. We drove through some pretty heavy rain, and it was still drizzly when we got there so we started out in the gift shop. By the time we got out, the sun was shining. The day turned out beautiful, and I'm so glad we decided to go!
We told the girls they needed to hold someone's hand in the parking lot. They chose each other.

So, we weren't sure how the pony ride was going to go this year since last year's ride ended in tears after about 10 seconds. As you can see, Big Girl Kyri LOVED the ride this year!
She patted her pony, yelled yeehaw, and even thanked her horse at the end of the ride. She was still talking about how the horse sneezed while we were eating dinner tonight!

Feeding the animals. Last year she was scared of them. Today she actually put her hand out and let them eat out of it.

After the farm, we went over to Jeff and Shannon Doll's house for the Bears game. Kyri came running in wearing Tatum's wings and waving her wand. She was yelling 'princess'. This was totally unprompted and absolutely cracked me up. She is all girl! How did she even know what to do with a wand?
Shortly after Kyri came running in with her wings and wand, Aubs came in with this big ball!
So similar, yet so different!
Adorable Mia looks so grown up in this picture!
Here's what was going on in the playroom while the game was on!
We traveled out to Sugar Grove to meet up with Grandma Nancy, Papa Mike, Uncle B, Auntie Kay, Aubry, and Pop at the pumpkin patch this past weekend. All of my Purdue friends were in to celebrate Erin's birthday, so they decided to join us at the pumpkin patch, too. Martha brought her son Connor and Amy brought her son Rylan along. We had a big crowd there, and the kids provided great entertainment! **Warning there are a TON of pictures... I couldn't help myself.
