Guys! We have been so busy that I have about ten posts to write about things we have been up to lately! I shared my Christmas Bucket List last week and we have been having so much fun doing lots of these things with the girls. Going into this month, I was looking forward to having both girls be at a good age to understand everything and it has definitely been so much fun. Henley and Macie both understand most of the things surrounding this season. They both are having a blast participating and have patience to sit through most of things. It's really been great.Read More
Our long weekend has come to an end (hold me!). These past five days off have been amazing. We spent Wednesday prepping for Thanksgiving then we headed to visit Santa before the lines start getting too long. Macie has cried sitting on Santa's lap the last two years. This year was no different, she wanted nothing to do with himRead More
There is just something so great about weekends in the fall. I look forward to them like no other time of year, knowing that something seasonal is right around the corner---fall festivals, Halloween crafts, baking, and more. This weekend did not disappoint in that arena.Read More
My mom joined us last week for her class and I tried out the 25mm lens with my camera. I recently got an adapter for my Olympus to be able to use my husband's lenses on my camera and I'm having a blast so far.
Our morning started with homemade pumpkin waffles from the hubs (which we amazing). Pancakes led to Macie eating fistfuls (literally) of syrup which then led to an unplanned morning bath. While in the bath I was catching up on social media. I happened to look over to see Macie had pooped in the tub. Queue panic, pulling a soapy kid out of the bath, calling for hubs to come get said child, fishing the poop out, and running to find the bleach. No bleach so to Target I went. I should have know it was going to be one of those days with that kind of start. In summary today was a collection of cleaning up after Macie.
Yesterday was much more calm. We started the day with Henley's gymnastic class and the local fall festival. We went with our friends that have two girls, similar ages to Henley and Macie. It was a blast. The girls played on the playground, did the bounce house and giant slide and we rode the little Halloween train. The wait for the train was longer than expected so we didn't end up getting our pumpkin. We need to pickup a pumpkin to carve one night this week.
There were old pictures of my Dad all around, it was great looking back over all of the memories throughout the years. Happy Birthday Dad!! Love you!
It's almost 7pm, approaching Macie's bedtime. One more push for the day---bedtime, folding laundry, and packing bags for the week. Here I go. Hope you are enjoying the rest of your weekend.
