Kale kept nice and cuddly warm tonight in his giraffe costume for Halloween. We thought the costume was fitting what with him being so long and all (and the costume was a garage sale find so it was the right price!) Last weekend we celebrated some family birthdays with D's family and Grandpa carved Kale his very own pumpkin.

Today was Kale's 4 month doctor's appointment which meant...MORE SHOTS. Man, those are not fun for Kale or Mom. I decided since he was getting poked, I would too. We stopped at a flu clinic on our way home and Mom got poked...Here we are displaying our "battle wounds." I think we both need a nap this afternoon!
Kale is now 27.5 inches long and weighs 15.3 lbs. He's a growin' boy!

A tradition at my former workplace, was my co-worker Joan would host our student employees at her home during the fall for a warm meal followed by viewing "The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" and a game of spoons. Although I'm not longer working, all of the student employees were returners so I was invited to join in on the fun once again this fall. It warmed my heart and spirit to see all of them again.

We traveled to Justin's parents' farm in MN to help with harvest. Kale had his first tractor ride with dad. When the sun got in his eyes, he wasn't so sure about things. Eventually, he got over it... A highlight for D was to ride with Justin's brother while he lifted sugar beets. Justin's brother, Nate, with a sugar beet. While home, we got to see lots of family. Below is cousin Jordan keeping Kale content. Cousin Tate is just 4 weeks younger than Kale. On Sunday was Tate's dedication. Afterward, we enjoyed a meal at Justin's sister's home. It was a great opportunity for a family photo. Oh the growing family! Christmas is sure to be crazy! Sister-in-law's pose for a photo. The 8 grandchildren.
