The McDonald's came to town!

Dave's parent's came out for a week to meet Charley. It was so nice to have them here. The kids miss their Grandma and Grandpa McDonald and they helped me so much while they were here.

Grandma stayed busy drawing pictures and reading books to the kids and taking Charley off my hands when I have to run to pull one of the older kids off the other before bones break.

Dave roped his dad into working for us while he was here. They went to Home Depot 3 times a day and kept busy sanding and nailing and constructing.

They finished this beautiful toy chest and completely redid the picnic table. I'm so excited for the stain to dry!

Pumpkin carving FHE!
I'm working on finishing Halloween costumes this week and we carved pumpkins last night. The kids are still a little young to get totally into it but we have fun.

Dave made a Thomas train pumpkin for JJ.

And I made a puppy for Lily.

JJ DID NOT like the feel of the goo and was flinging it everywhere crying for us to wash his hands :)

How fun! Grandparents are wonderful, aren't they? :) I don't blame JJ for not liking pumpkin goo.
