Happy Thanksgiving!

Since we just made two trips to Texas in the past two weeks, we decided to spend Thanksgiving in Kansas.  Our sweet neighbors invited us to spend the holiday with them at their farm.  The night before Thanksgiving we drove to Adam and Ginger's cabin which is about thirty minutes away.  It's more like a regular house, not a cabin.  We built a campfire, roasted weenies, made s'mores, and of course Steve broke out his guitar for some campfire songs.

The "cabin"

We left Thanksgiving morning to celebrate on the farm.  There must have been at least 50 people there.  They were all so welcoming and acted like we belonged there.  The food was also pretty amazing.  The boys had a great time and got to have a real farm experience.  

All of the kids playing on top of the giant bales of hay

The tire swing was very popular too.

Hudson and Landon collected fresh eggs from the chicken coop!  We got to take them home and made eggs with them the next morning.  They were delicious!

Isn't this what you think of when you think of Kansas?  Bales of hay, a horse trailer, and big blue sky?

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

The Great Pumpkin - A New Tradition

We started a new tradition in the Hahn house this year.  It's called the Great Pumpkin.  After trick-or-treating, I gave each boy a ziplock baggie.  They could fill it with as much candy as they wanted, as long as it zipped.  Then we took the rest of the candy (a grocery bag full) and put it out on the back porch for the Great Pumpkin.  The Great Pumpkin visited us that night.  He took the candy and left a Cars 2 DVD for the boys.  The candy then went to Steve's office and was out of our house.  

Here's a shot of the boys and their preschool class on Halloween.

And a flashback to 1981, maybe?  My brother and me and Batman and Robin.
