C & O Want to Wish you a Happy Halloween

The way Chase says Halloween is just adorable, I can't get enough of it!  The first day he learned to say "Happy Halloween" he ran around the house saying it over and over and Jeff and I couldn't stop laughing. 
Owen also wishes you a "Happy Halloween!"
Owen started saying Trick or Treat before Happy Halloween and he said it over and over like Chase had done.  He would say Trick or Treat and expect some pretend candy to be put in his bucket!

Football at Iowa State

 We went to an Iowa State football game last Saturday with my parents. It was homecoming in Ames and the town was busy! We had a blast, of course.  It was so good to see Nana and Papa Anderson, it's actually been a couple months since we'd seen them.  I also got to see Lindzy and her family and my friend Raneen and her family.  The kids had a blast playing together and running all over the tailgate.  We sat with my parents for half of the game.  Chase and Owen did very well, although they wanted to go between Nana and Papa and Jeff and I over and over.  They ate a lot of fun game food.  We stayed at the Memorial Union, which is on campus.  It's always fun to be close to the action and the campus is just beautiful this time of year.  I always feel that tug of nostalgia when at Iowa State.  Can it really be over 15 years since I started there as a freshman?

Owen and Chase got to pull the wagon with our big pumpkins in it.

 Chase pulls all by himself.
 Owen takes a big bite of the apple on our hay ride.
Chase gets a big bite, too
 Daddy and the boys collect apples.  It was hard for the boys to not pick the apples up off the ground.

 The beautiful orchard and my handsome hubby.
lots of apples were on the ground.

 "Let's stomp on the apples"
 Chase kicks the apples
 We had to hold hands because the Chase and Owen slipped on the apples and fell down too many times.
