A good blogger I do not make....

So, over three months with no update. Turns out blogging isn't really my thing. I have these great posts envisioned in my head, but they never seem to go much further than that. So, instead of a thought provoking post, here is a quick photo update of some of the highlights of our last few months.

September, 25th - Jack turned four. For Jack's birthday we had a racecar party. The weather was great and we had lots of fun with our wonderful family. Jack lovesto tell everyone "I am four, just like Dale". Dale always pipes up, "But I've been four longer."

Off to the races in our cardboard box race cars.

On your mark, get set, go....

Siri and Stella enjoying their cars.

September also brought the start of soccer season.  Turning four has really helped Jack's soccer game and he has really enjoyed playing this year.

We also had our fist overnight family camping trip.  It was a lot of fun and everyone did great, even Siri.

Great playground by the campsite.

Can't go camping without smores.

First pumpkin carving of the year.  Siri made an Elmo pumkin of course.

Siri discovers a love of hot chocolate.

Yum.  Good stuff.

Fishing was fun, even though we didn't catch anything (unless you count Dale catching himself).

This weekend we had our traditional Anderson Fall outing. 
The Anderson Clan
David 's parents put pumkins in the field then the kids get to go on a hayride and pick their favorite pumpkin.

Jack found a good one.

Siri picked hers.

Siri's pumpkin may have outweighed her.
The finished product (Siri, Dale, Stella, Jack and Matthew).

Jack's not so sure about Uncle Mike?!?
