It's been busy

We managed to squeeze a quick trip to the pumpkin patch, we were in and out in 13 minutes! We've been having so much rain, this was the driest day for us to get there. Note to self, go earlier in the fall, even if you're in full denial of fall!
They are getting so big!! Eli ate 3 bowls of cereal the other day!
I've been very busy dyeing. You can always tell when it gets so quiet around here! I dyed close to 70 pounds for Knitting Lab, are you coming? I'd love to see you! I'll have so much yarn and so many colors!!
3 drying racks crammed into the kitchen. We have the heat on, the oven open after cooking beets, a heater on and a fan blowing. Crossing fingers it's all dry in time!
You can't see in this picture, but it is pouring down rain. Dyeing on the back patio is loosing a little bit of it's appeal. Thankfully it is covered, but wow. I was a little damp after 10 hours of dyeing outside!
Yay pineapple express and the drenching!
And now we're squeezing in Halloween. I'm flying down to California Halloween day so I'm glad we got to have a little dress up fun today. Eli is going as Darth Vader, his favorite. Owen is a reluctant R2D2. Eric did a bang up job on the costume! 
I'll be back with a big announcement on November 1st. I'm hatching a plan to get out of the weather!
