When trying to scrape out the stringy insides, if all else fails — use power tools!

Voila! Jack's "vampire" pumpkin, out on the front porch.

"Field" trip

Jack's pre-K class went to the Weston Red Barn Farm today.

It was a tud "muddy."

Our farm guide described these hay bales as an old-fashioned playground.

Prized possession.

Random pics from the beginning of October

Tailgating before Northwest's routing of Pitt State at Arrowhead Stadium. Leslie was such a trooper to go!

Oakhill Day School tornado recovery

What? I thought all parents get their kids' first day of pre-K on the news.

In addition to securing all four local TV stations, I also was quoted in a Kansas City Star feature article on the front page of the Metro section (with a large color photo ... above the fold).

Taken through the passenger-side window on my way to work this morning, before leaving our subdivision.

Friday afternoon

Jackson was off school today, but had to be right by Landon's side. Here, Jack's watching cartoons ... while keeping Landon's pacifier in.

By comparison

Here's a picture of big brother Jackson in the hospital, soon after he was born (Aug. 27, 2003).

Even in the womb, we thought Landon resembled Jack. These 3-D sonogram pictures of Landon were taken Aug. 15, 2008.
