Enjoying the Fall...

Our weekend officially started on Thursday with an annual trip to the NC State Fair with good friends. This year we rushed to the fair after work and spent the evening eating yummy fair food (that corn on the cob was awesome!), introducing Winnie to lots of farm animals and making memories with friends. One night at the fair is usually enough but there was a lot to fit in with such little time before we had to get Miss Winnie home for bed. (Amanda- sorry we didn't get a pic visiting you at the lot!!)

Us, Kristi and Elizabeth loving our corn!

Ben enjoying his ice cream!
Mom - this is for you....a contest you could contest and there were LOTS of angel food cakes on display!
On Friday night we had visitors come to brother Eben and his girlfriend Julia. We were excited to finally meet Julia and show them around Raleigh. We started Saturday off with pancakes...Winnie's first taste and boy did she LOVE them! The rest of the afternoon we toured around downtown and they went off to see Chapel Hill for themselves. The highlight of the day was watching PSU beat was sort of a boring game but one turnover set the pace for an awesome win! Thanks again Stephanie, Matt & Eden for watching Winnie so we could go out to cheer on the Nittany Lions!!

Winnie wore her PSU cheerleading outfit to church today to rub it in that we had beat our Youth Pastor's fav team OSU!! This made for some great photo opps when we got home!

Our weekend ended with a Fall Festival at Hope church with our good friends the Vallecorse's. We had a blast dressing our munchkins in their Halloween costumes...and they were such good sports! We may not be able to trick-or-treat with the V's but this was much more fun!!

While Amy and I were getting some cotton candy, Brian spotted a little white thing in Winnie's smile... a TOOTH!!! YAH!! We've been waiting months for this day!!!
She was a pro riding the horse...

What sweet babes these two are...who knew a cow and bumblebee could be so darn cute!!!
