Not sure what happened in these pictures. I was trying to get some pics of Riley this morning before her Pajama Party at daycare for Halloween. My whitebalance must have been crazy or something on my camera because all of the pics had this ghostly hue. OOOOO!

Here are some more pics from Sunday. Mom and Riley watching kids play. You can see the smoke from the tobacco barns in the background. Riley had a small pumpkin that was her favorite. The boy in the picture had just had his face painted by Amber who is extremely talented. You'll note in the picture his eyes are actually closed. She painted eyes on his eyelids. Too weird. And the cool balloon hat was a work of Tane Alexander who lives up the road. She does some incredible balloon sculptures and hats you wouldn't believe.

Our church had their annual fall festival at the farm yesterday. It was a beautiful day and I think everyone had a lot of fun. Riley enjoy playing with Jamie and with some of the kids games. Grammie did most of the babysitting for the day. Pa Pa took care of the clay pigeon shooting but found time to play some with Riley too. We had a good crowd and great food. Definitely a good day!

All of the family gathered last Sunday to celebrate Grandma and Grandpa Storey's 70th wedding anniversary. It was a great service with many sharing their stories and memories. Afterwards we went to my aunt's house for a wonderful lunch. The kids really enjoyed playing. The younger ones dug in the corn for goodies, played in the bubbles, rode in the Escallade and played in the play house. The older kids made their way through the woods on the golf carts and played pinball. Joseph took Riley for a good ride around the yard. She really enjoyed it. Then she decided she would "drive" and AnnaMaria got in to ride with her. I'm not sure AnnaMaria realized that Riley can't really drive. She pushes on the gas but basically does not steer. Luckily no one was hurt!

We spent last weekend visiting with family in Illinois. Riley and Reese got the chance to play together and we went to the Mule Day festival in Enfield. Reese was really excited about Riley. In the video you can hear her squealing the entire time. She was so excited she was actually shaking. I hope as she gets older she will still be that excited about playing with her cousin. They are so close in age that we may hear as much crying as we do squealing I'm afraid.
