October was a great month. Ryan celebrated his 33rd birthday and PJ celebrated her 4th birthday. We also spent quite a bit of time at the pumpkin patch. We went as a family early in October. The place we go, Stoney Ridge Farms, has SUPER apple cider donuts. They are delish. There are a lot of fun things to do at the farm. The kids went on rides, picked out pumpkins and had treats. PJ also got to go to the pumpkin patch with her Preschool Class. They got a tour of the farm and got to pick a small pumpkin.
For PJ's birthday, she had 2 parties. The first was a friend party on Friday night. Her closest friends were there to help her celebrate. We had an awesome cake made by Karen Teshera. The theme was princesses... that is all PJ can talk about. We had a princess pinata which filled the kids' bags with candy so I think everyone left happy.
Her 2nd party was a family party. Patrice's family came over and we had more good food and cake! PJ got some great presents including a new BIKE from Grandma and Grandpa Valentine. Both Colty and PJ loved the bike.
Patrice was one of 6 finalists for the Professional Woman of the Year award. She didn't win, but we had a great time. Her family came up to the awards banquet and got to celebrate all the hard work Patrice does for her business.
