Thanks for sharing in Amalea's life thus far!

If that link didn't work... try this one for now.

Multonomah Falls

This morning my mom and brother flew up to Portland for a visit. We took a little adventure out to the Columbia River and got to go see a great waterfall, Multonomah Falls.

The real Halloween

Ami and Mommy getting ready to go knock on their first door. Ami wasn't sure what she was supposed to do, but we had fun anyway. We didn't go to a lot of houses, but just the ones that were all decorated and looked fun.
We also went to a Halloween party at a community center and played games and made cookies. Ami liked playing with the decorations the most.

Halloween preview

We went to a Halloween party tonight with our church community and got a little preview of Halloween fun to come. It was fun to get dressed up and Ami is an adorable butterfly. More pictures will be coming after Friday. We plan to do a little trick-or-treating old school style (door to door) and also attend a community party in an area of town that we really like. I truly love Halloween - I don't know what it is. Maybe because the Fall air is so crisp and people are always laughing and playing so much on Halloween - it's great.

Amalea has become a fan of brushing her teeth (grandpa Dave would be proud). After Jim or I have finished brushing her teeth for her she gets to try herself and she really enjoys this part of her bedtime routine.

Saturday evening we went to this awesome farm to travel through a corn maze, eat yummy food and get pumpkins. We went with a group of people from church and went through the maze with them.
Ami didn't like wearing her hat, but we were able to snap a picture of her with it on here. I think next year we will go earlier and spend more of the day there because it was a bit chilly by the time we got there.
Jim ended up having to carry Amalea through most of the corn maze since it was super muddy. I don't think she cared much for the maze, but oh well.
If the maze wasn't her thing thats ok because she definitely loved the corn. It was delicious corn and Ami ate it right off the cob.
To get out to the giant pumpkin patch you can either take a hayride or walk...we opted for the ride. It was very fun!

Amalea's hair was a total riot blowing in the wind since it is so thin. She loved hitting the pumpkins like they were drums. After we got the ones we wanted and put them in a cart to carry them out to the car she kept banging them and even was hugging them and snuggling a bit.
