Awana Grand Prix

This was our first year participating in the Awana Grand Prix. We didn't know what to expect, but the results were amazing. Alex won 1st place for design and speed. It was a ton of fun and we can't wait until next year. John has already said we wants to do additional cars for Luke and himself next year.

It was a photo finish, but Alex pulls it out in the end.

Pumpkin Patch

He's a few cute pictures from the pumpkin patch.

Mountains in Kansas?

Alex said, "Mom see, we do have mountain in Kansas City, Dad made us one." Then he laughed so hard he fell over. Fall has been beautiful here, although a lot of work. The leaves are nice, raking up the leaves, not so nice. Below is a view looking up our street from our house.


Halloween was a blast. We had three weeks of fun visiting pumpkin patches, going to fall fest at World of Fun, trick or treating at Boo at the Zoo, then all the festivities on Oct 31. The kids were Star Wars characters (big surprise). Alex was Captain Rex, Luke was Anakin, Erik was baby Anakin, and John was bad Anakin (a.k.a. Darth Vader). We went trick or treating first in a place called Brookside. It is a quaint area with a bunch of cool shop. Erik had his Darth Vader helmet candy holder and would run from store to store looking for candy, it was sooo cute.
