We spent 2 good weeks celebrating Halloween this year. First, we went to Hall's Pumpkin Farm. We went there last year and loved it. It is free, there is a corn maze, playground, food, and hay rides. The kids love looking at all of the pumpkins and it's a great photo spot. 


The next week, we went to Boo at the Zoo. They gave out candy and had lots of games for the kids to play.

On Halloween, we had a Trunk or Treat at our church. We served hot dogs, had a DJ, and gave away tons of candy. Will loved playing with his cousin Henry and eating as much candy as he could. Reese enjoyed putting candy in each of the kids bags. She would put a piece of candy in and say "Thank you!" Everyone loved it! People kept commenting on how she is so beautiful. What pretty eyes!

October Sewing

My dear friend, Lisa Kile, bought me a pleater out of the blue. I was completely dumbstruck and could barely talk. I was blown away by her generosity. Not only did she buy me a pleater, but she bought me some fabric and a pattern to make this cute Halloween spider dress. Then she took me and my children out for lunch. She is like another mother to me and has treated my family and my children like her own. I am so grateful to have her in my life! 

Happy October!

Southside Annual Campout

We look forward to the Southside camp out every year! It was really fun except for being freezing cold. We were not prepared. I pretty much wore the same sweatpants from the first night until the third day. Will enjoyed throwing rocks in the lake, playing baseball, and running crazy with his friends. Reese laid down almost immediatley in the sand and rolled around. She loves to get dirty! It is an exhausting weekend but totally worth it.
