October continued to keep us busy. In addition to the everyday we had two visitors and lots of fun in anticipation of Halloween. We started the month by going to the open house at the Fire Department.
*Just so you don't think I didn't take any pictures of Annabelle after this. Her soccer game wore her out and she needed a bit of a break and took one with Daddy, while Huddy and I finished the rounds
Each Saturday we headed out to watch Annabelle play soccer, amazed at how much she has improved. As one of the smaller players she has no fear or problem slipping between the other girls to get the ball. Sam's grandparents came down to visit one weekend and his parents another so they could see her in action for themselves.

We have really liked our neighborhood from the start, but as it grows we like it even more. The kids were so excited when we got booed, and got to boo someone else.

My MOPS group got together one morning at The Farmstead, we took advantage since we had yet to visit. After a hayride and picking out pumpkins we enjoyed playing the rest of the morning.

At home it was all about decorating for the season; doing crafts and carving pumpkins.

The week of Halloween we visited Sam at work for one of our favorite Halloween traditions trick-or-treating in the office.

And just like that it was the end of the month and of course Halloween. We had quite the day.
