We all had fun in the cold. Lexy was bundled up like a little cocoon. Isaac was wanting to find a parachute and do the jump. And Amy was... you guessed it studying as we walked around. She ran into the MSU CRNA program director there. It was pretty funny when she pull out her study notes and then said, "Hey Becky, how are ya..?"

They have Halloween a little early here in West Virginia when the 31st falls on a weekend. They do it to keep kids off the streets when the party level is high. The Ridges did Trick or Treating tonight. So, here's the pics.
We make some cookies and frosted our tails off.
Isaac is a Zombie. It took Lexy almost a week to warm up the him in the costume. But they look great together.
Lexy and her best buddy Emma on our front steps.
Here are the pumpkins that the kids carved.

The Lowe's her has a kids workshop that is free everyother Saturday. This was an on week. The kids have built fire trucks, ball toss games and Frankenstien boxes. It's a nice little program Each week they get a patch for the project they build. Lexy's are attached to her Lowe's apron.
While we were finish up the Frankenstein boxes we heard that Toys R Us was having a free Lego build a toy. So we found a way to kill a little time and headed on over. It worked out pretty good. We even ran in to the Harman family. The kids got to build a Lego Car and take it home. I love free Legos..!!Thanks Lowe's and Toys R Us.
Lexy got here Halloween costume all ready. Complete with the ruby slippers and basket with Toto. She is ready to roll.

One of the games we played was a squirrel eating game. We talked about the fact that squirrels don't have thumbs like we do. So, we used masking tape and taped their thumbs to their palms, on both hands. Then went we got all the thumbs taped down... We gave them peanuts to shell and eat. Like a squirrel would have to. The all had a lot of fun with that. Some used their teeth, others smashed them into the chair. What a mess. But they all had fun.

Lexy's Monkey Feet
Lexy rode in the stroller most of the time we where at the festival. Sitting down and not moving much I think she got the coldest. Her feet were freezing. So, once we got in the car, I had her take off her shoe and I put my gloves on her feet. She had a lot of fun being a monkey. She kept asking, "Give me some monkey food."
There is a place just short of Fayetteville on State Route 16 called Cotton Hill. Very pretty area. These are some sweet photos that we took.

So, if you are not familiar with BASE jumping it is when someone jumps off an object with a parachute. Building, Antenna, Span, or Earth. Isaac is quite interested in it because Travis Pastrana does a lot of BASE jumping. He got up on the ledge and thought about it... but without a chute he stepped back down.

Dad and Lexy enjoying the cold rain on the bridge.
