Fall Fun in The Old Pueblo

I love Halloween!! We were super excited to kick off the fall here in Tucson, even though the weather didn't feel much like autumn. Steve and Katie Craig and little Ava headed down from Phoenix to spend a Fun Fall Weekend here, and we packed it full! First, we met up with the Coppuses for haunted houses and creepy shows at "Nightfall," the Halloween theme for Old Tucson Studios. Then we got up Saturday morning to watch College Football (Alabama won!) and headed out to Buckelew Farms Pumpkin Patch for a hayride to pick out the perfect pumpkins. After chili and cornbread, we watched a scary movie, although we had worn ourselves out and all fell asleep. So sad! Before church on Sunday, we all carved pumpkins, and even stuck Ava in one. Since we don't have a little goblin of our own, it was sweet of Katie and Steve to share Ava with us--it makes Halloween so much more fun!
