Happy Halloween '13

1 Sleeping Beauty + 1 Rock Star = Really Cute Trick-or-Treaters!

I am tired.  I used to sprint from house to house as a kid filling up as many buckets with candy as humanly possible showing no signs of fatigue.  Tonight I think I need to ice my back after walking (not running) through our neighborhood with the girls.  But boy did they have fun... literally jumping out of their skin excited.  After every house they would turn around and scream out whatever kind of candy they got. And we did it with good friends which is also a blast... and total chaos.
Kathy and I were totally rocking our costumes!!!  FYI... that is not my real hair.




Our friends had the best Mario costumes... and she made them herself.  So fun!

Sheer JOY!

Candy corn pumpkins

The girls had a lot of fun decorating these little jars and filling them with candy corns. The only problem now is trying to get them to not eat all of the candy corns!

What you need:
2 empty clean glass jars with lids
Black electrical tape
Small squares of green fabric ( I used scraps)
Two small branch clippings
Two fake green leaves
Hot glue
2 bags candy corns

Cut the electrical tape to make the faces. Then you will hot glue the fabric onto the lid around the edges. Hot glue the branch to the top of the lid along with the leaf.  Fill the jars up with Candy corns and you're all set!

Little Ballerinas

The girls both asked to try ballet this Fall and they were so precious!  To watch them prance out onto the dance floor was the cutest thing I've ever seen.  It was as though they were real ballerinas walking onto a big stage, they were in HEAVEN! 
Here's Madi's little class...

And here is Avery's... she really was so cute!  The video was during the modern dance part of the class where the teacher asked them to make up a dance that expressed their gratitude for the pianist who played for them.  I think it is pretty awesome!

Pumpkin Patch Here We Come!

On the way to the pumpkin patch this year Avery lost a tooth!  It was pretty awesome to see her "hole-y" smile hop out of the car and scream "I LOST MY TOOTH!  IT JUST SHOT RIGHT OUT!"  So, after all that excitement, we ventured out into the patch to find the perfect pumpkins.  If it had been up to Avery and Madi, we would have walked away with about 20 of them... we only kept 5.
