Jack-o-lantern Time!

We carved our pumpkins tonight. Makai wanted a happy one and Beck wanted a scary one. Looks like Ike did a great job on both! We just have too much fun, don't we?

Boo at the Zoo!

This weekend we went to Boo at the Zoo with Luke and Carissa's family. The kids loved it! We got tons of candy, saw some animals, rode on the merry-go-round backwards and even got a Krispy Kreme doughnut. We also went to our wards trunk or treat. Makai had a lot of fun with her girlfriends. She absolutely loves her costume. We have a couple of parties next week too. We're milking Halloween for all it's worth and lovin' it!

Pumpkin Patch Time!

I just love going to pumpkin patches! It was a beautiful fall day and we found two perfect pumpkins, went on a hayride and enjoyed being with friends. The kids loved playing on the tractor, running around and just being outside. Have I mentioned that I love the fall?

Halloween Party

We had a really fun Halloween/birthday party for Jack and Mick. We had great food, a pinata, lots of chatting and running around. The kids had a great time and so did the adults. Luke and Carissa sure know how to throw a party!

Happy Fall Y'all!

I thought that Makai and Beck made such cute hats at preschool I just had to take their picture. There Halloween costumes turned out so cute! We were given a cute spider costume that Beck is just thrilled with. He will "trap you" with his spider legs and shoot webs at you. Makai decided she wanted to be Wonder Woman which is a surprising choice for her, but she does make a cute one! I made her costumes and it only took me practically two whole days! I'm not the world's best seamstress, but she loves the costume and told me her favorite part is wearing the blue eyeshadow....typical Makai, like mother like daughter!

Fall Festival Tennessee Style

What a perfect fall afternoon. The kids and I went with some friends to the Maryville Fall Festival this afternoon/evening. They got to ride a trolley, school bus, and a little train. They played in lots of bouncy things. Makai the acrobat even did front flips on the bungee bouncer! We had an awesome day that ended with McDonald's. It doesn't get much better than that!

Kick Off to Fall!

I just love fall! There are so many things to do and the weather is perfect. To kick off the season we had Jack and Mick over to decorate Halloween cookies. They were delicious and so much fun to decorate. Mick and Beck ate theirs as fast as they could. We also went to a really fun gym and the kids had tons of fun swinging into the foam pit and jumping and just going crazy with their friends.

Weekend with the Price's

The adorable price kids bike riding! My awesome friend Christa drove all the way down from Lexington to watch my kids along with her three kids for the entire weekend!! What a life saver! I had to go to Nashville to train for Body Pump and of course Ike was working all weekend. It's safe to say the kids had a great weekend playing with their friends and Makai adores Miss Christa! They were all in one piece and Christa was still sane by the time I got home. We love you Price family and can't thank you enough!

Fun Times with Grammy and Pops!

We had the best time ever when Grammy and Pop Pop visited! We sure do love and miss them so much. We went to Chucky E. Cheese, a boat ride, the Smokey Mountains, Cracker Barrel, shopping (one of my personal favorites!) and we did tons of chatting and sight seeing. I have missed my parents so much. Makai and Beck sure loved being with them. One night Beck got out of his bed and climbed into bed with Pop Pop! How cute is that! We had the best time ever and I can't wait for them to come again.
