October fun...

What a fun and festive month.

Reese had orange day at school thursday, so I whipepd up a skirt from some orange felt that I had on my desk (thanks for the idea J)

Can you believe that I can get pigtails in her little hair? Reese was born with enough for french braids it seemed, so I have been waiting patiently for Payt to get enough to do anything with! It was so cute and she loves having her "did"!
(Don't mind the part, you try getting it straight when your 16 month old is eating and really interested to what you are doing to her back there:))

And some serious pumpkin carving fun. We waited till it was a little late and if you look closely, Payt was a little sleepy with her bunny and thumb in mouth:)

Stay tuned for some serious costume photos. J and I went to an adult costume party lastnight and there was much creativity!
We hope you all had a wonderful and safe Halloween...

Ellie's outfit

Our sweet neighbor and friend Eliana is turning 5 tomorrow! Reese went to her party on Saturday and had a lot of fun. I am really into making people's gifts right now, so I decided to whip up this dress, pants and hair flower for her. This was a BIG 1st for me. It was the 1st time I purchased a pattern and sewed something from it (the pants). So much easier then I had worked it up to be. I guess I was just intimidated. I bought the pants pattern to fit sizes 2-8 so my girls will be wearing them for years:) If anyone wants them, just let me know...I think I will be much faster now...Happy Monday everyone...

What is up with us...

So the last month or so have been a whirlwind! Reese has started a new year of pre-school (the last one before the BIG kindergarten next year:() Both girls are taking swimming lessons, and Reese started playing Soccer! My Wednesday's have been hell-ish, but my girls are busy, happy and experiencing lots of fun stuff.

Here is Reese at the Pumpkin Patch just yesterday with her class. How much fun we had at Terry's Berries, an all Organic Farm. We got some MONSTER pumpkins that we will be busy carving this weekend.

My lovely dinner with two of my BEST girlfriends, Jodi and Heidi. I truly love these two so much!

Reese and Sadie at their 1st soccer game! We were so proud of her:) She HATED her 1st practice and wouldn't let go of my leg. However, Saturday she got out there and had fun the whole time! Granted, her and Sadie were holding hands on the field and dancing, not to mention that they had to goalie at the same time, but "Oh so much fun" was had!

Reese's 1st day of school with her Daddy and I

I have caught Payton climbing all sorts of stuff now, including this slide! This one makes me happy, she was so proud of herself. The little Monkey...

Payton's new fashion statement! This is what she looked like when I got her up from her nap:)

Reese and her little girlfriend Ellie that lives accross the street. I caught the two of them coloring oh so nicely:) That can be rare sometimes:)

Happy Halloween Everyone and Fall too (although I am one of those who begrudge Fall, sweaters and REAL shoes. I am already longing for my capris and flip flops. Spring anyone???)
