Jonas decided he'd rather be a ready-made designer than design haute couture, so he used his creative efforts to make a Picaso-esque pumpkin character for the front stoop.

Pumpkin patch!

Jonas spent a windy and gorgeous Sunday at the Eeplegarten pumpkin patch. He helped pick out four pumpkins, including his standard Jonas-little-misshapen-one (see last year's pumpkin patch post

Next, Jonas enjoyed his Norwegian heritage while looking over an embroidered panel with typical Norwegian farm activities, including "fenalar" (yelling into a turkey baster?) and "geitost" (grazing goats on the roof?). He also made friends with the Norwegian headmaster troll, who was wielding a whacking stick and who sports and interestingly-shaped nose, as Jonas points out in the picture.

Finally, Jonas got to ride in a horse drawn wagon, which he truly enjoyed to the point that he wet through his pants. The horses gave Jonas quite a ride, to which he replied "sssththth" (silly).

Leaf pile!

Jonas and Cory spent beautiful Sunday afternoon playing in the leaf piles on our street.

As the beautiful weather continued Jonas went on many outdoor adventures including a trip to Hilldale's Sundance Theatre rooftop to look over the west side fall colors.
