A most wonderful friend (Ter) made an adorable taggie blanket for Drake. Immediately he loved it and of course shoved it into his mouth. Now every time he sees it a huge smile breaks out and he squirms with joy. No doubt it will be cherished for years to come, I see it getting very "loved" in only the way children can love things.

Tonight we decided to carve a few of our pumpkins since tomorrow is just going to fly by.

Brian was very ambitious and creative with his design, he drew it the night before.

Needless to say it took him several hours to carve his out.

Vanessa drew on her design and I carved it out for her. After one handful of pumpkin filling she was done for the night. She was more than happy to take pictures, jump rope, hulahoop and patiently wait for dinner until I was done.

And Mr Drake was more than happy to hang out in the swing and watch all the fun.
