Harvest Night at Bible Study

Wednesday nights are bible study night for Austin and I and this week was a special Harvest Night... All the kids dressed up and had a night full of games that all lead up to a prize at the end (with candy along the way of course!)

Playing in Sand in 30mph wind... ouch

We had some time to kill before church dinner so I let Austin outside to play on their playground. He didnt seem to mind the cool air and huge winds...
... They pelted him in the face with sand!

Ready for a Wedding!

Uncle Ryan's wedding is coming up quick and I thought I should try the tux on that Austin gets to sport as ring bearer. Luckily, it fits like a charm...

This is his "end of the night" look

Piercing Pumpkins

We are a bit more of a "piercing pumpkins with plastic faces" than "carving pumpkin" kind of family... Less messy, way easier, much quicker!!
We'll probably tackle the real carving next week... maybe.

South Lyon has a great display of scarecrows throughout downtown. Local businesses and people enter their "art" to compete for the best crow around.

These were a few of our favorites...
