Meet Pete!!

Does everybody else's kids love these cut-out face things as much as mine??
Here's our newest Schrodt - Scarecrow Pete!
Can you see how big Josiah is smiling in this picture? He LOVED it!!

She was so excited I finally let her get down in the hay!!!

David gets all the credit for this one!! He saw in Friday's paper that one of the area garden centers was sponsoring a build-your-own scarecrow activity this weekend. You pay a flat fee donation that goes to our children's hospital, and that covered all the materials needed. So off we went this morning to begin our fall festivities!!! After all, I need all the help I can get in the decor department!!! We started off at the pumpkin patch to get our pumpkins for Jacob's party and our carving pumpkin. (Would you believe I didn't get any pics of the kids with the pumpkins??) Then off to build a scarecrow!!! Man, did we have fun!!!
