Halloween monkey, plasma cars, and that darned pumpkin patch

Surprise! Zane-O was a monkey for his first Halloween! Cutest little monkey I've ever seen! We didn't do any door-to-door trick or treating...just went to Memaw's and Mama Doot's. Aunt Lindsey, Uncle Erik, Nana, & Bo Joe all came to bring the little monkey goodies. Doesn't he look thrilled?
Here's our little family on Halloween. I really didn't want to use this picture because I look F-A-T, but it's the only one we took together. Besides, maybe everyone will focus on the cute little boy and my handsome husband. No more Halloween candy for me!
He's just trying to decide which tree to swing from first....

Anyone got a banana?

So, moving on to plasma cars. Friday night we decided we'd go watch the Pulaski Academy and Little Rock Christian football game. We pulled up to a very dark, very empty, LRC football stadium. It seems we miscalculated and were a little early for the in, a whole week early! I felt pretty goofy because I had Z dressed up in his football sweater and hat. When we got back home, our neighbors were outside carving pumpkins and invited us over to play. Madison and McKinley have these cool plasma cars that were lots of fun!
And that DARNED Pumpkin Patch! You may have read my earlier hissy fit about wanting to take Zane to the pumpkin patch. On Saturday afternoon we decided to attempt another trip to that mysterious field full of pumpkins to capture pictures of our little pumpkin. We followed the signs...Pumpkin Patch 5 miles...Pumpkin Patch 2 miles...Pumpkin Patch 500 feet................



I honestly did not believe it was closed and told Matt to keep driving! I would open a gate, climb a fence, do whatever it took to get into that patch.

Except that the next sign said "WATCH FOR ALLIGATORS"!

Maybe next year?

You do not look F-A-T, you look C-U-T-E! Love the new haircut. And he is the cutest monkey ever! Bunner about the patch, there is always next year and next year Z will REALLY enjoy it!
