2016 Week 43

We had a wonderful time at the Rock Creek Pumpkin Patch this week.
Our front porch is full of beautiful gourds now and
the season of Autumn is in full swing.
 The kids had yummy (giant) pumpkin cookies, 
 and measured how big they are growing,
(I have one of these pictures from every year)
 and our little vehicle obsessed boy was able to "drive" some big tractors.
I love the traditions of this season.

Dinners this week:
Sunday - Leftover chili from the cook off yesterday. (PS, Scott took 3rd place with his smoked pork green chili.)
Monday - Monday night football with the Broncos!! Fried chicken and leftovers. Hehe, we still have tons of chili left.
Tuesday - Taco Tuesday, the kids' favorite night of the week. I'm getting tired of it though, so I'm looking for a yummy veggie taco recipe.
Wednesday - Veggie lasagna (from the freezer).
Thursday - YMCA halloween party, I'm making butternut squash mac and cheese with veggies for an early dinner.
Friday - Campfire with friends at a nearby farm. We will have an easy takeout pizza dinner before hand.
Saturday - Dinner out after the fun Monster Dash family run.

The kids and I summited Mt Sanitas this morning.

It was a great way to start the weekend.
