Trip to the pumpkin patch

The pumpkin we picked for the house

Can you find our pumpkin?

Sammy pushed our pumpkin back in the wheelbarrow (just kidding)

Sitting on the Gourds

We just got back from the pumpkin patch about 4 miles from our house. We had so much fun picking out a pumpkin with Sammy. While we were there, Sammy hit another milestone. A few weeks ago, he started sitting up for a while unsupported. Well now he is standing and holding on to things. It never ceases to amaze Tim and I how fast Sammy is growing up. Here are a few pictures from the pumpkin patch. Feel free to check out some other pictures here.

Chilly Chili Fest

Aaron and his son Drew, Lindsay and Sammy

Yesterday our church had the 4th annual Chilly Chili Fest. Our friends Brandon and Ann had the event at their house. We had a campfire, pumpkin carving, seed spitting contest and of course a Chili competition. There were 14 different pots of chili numbered for the competition. Each person received 5 kidney beans to place their vote(s) on their favorite bowl(s) of chili. The kids also had a costume parade through all of the other guests.

Sammy dressed up as Tigger and so did 2 other babies. They were all so cute!! You can check out some more pictures here. Also if you would like some 2nd place chili let me know and you can come over for dinner sometime ;-) hehe

Sammy's Dedication

Yesterday we dedicated Sammy at church. It was so nice to have family and friends there for the event. After the service, we had everyone over for lunch. It was so much fun having a full house of people eating, talking and just hanging out.

We received a nice gift from the church and lots of very cute gifts from friends and family. My parents got Sammy a Willow Tree figurine of a boy with a heart of gold and also a Christmas tree decoration with his birth information on it. Aunt Reatha got Sammy a book with a rattle built in. Aunt Rachel got him a Christmas tree decoration with Samuel written on it.

We wanted to thank everyone that came out to celebrate with us, including the Colmans, the Mehegans, the Stengers, the Whitcombs, and the Winns.

I will put up some pictures of everything when I get them from different family members.
