Halloween pics!

Aubrey and Allyson both had a ton of fun tonight. 

Aubrey and Cianna




She made it!! 












Blowing kisses!!


Mommy and her pumpkins



We tried to get a pic of Allyson and Piper ... Did not go so well. 
This is the best we got.


What can we expect from an almost one year old up an hour past her bedtime.



 I bought some glow sticks from the dollar store a few days ago for the car ride home... such a hit! Best dollar ever spent.



It kept my tired Ally awake the entire car ride home. She shook it, giggled and waved it at Aubrey.

Daddy had class tonight so he wasn't able to go with us. But we did get lucky and he got out a little early so he was waiting for us when we got home. Nice surprise for both the girls.

Both girls got baths when we got home and were off to dreamland in no time.

Next up: Allyson turning ONE and her party! These girls are getting big too fast!!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween

Hope everyone has a great time trick or treating, passing out candy or whatever you do tonight. Be safe!!

Another Hobby Lobby trip

We went to Hobby Lobby this morning. This is my third trip there and I have yet to be able to actually look around. I think Allyson hates that store. We went this morning at 9. She had just woken up, eaten breakfast ... whined the entire time we were there.




We went and bought some paint for a project we are doing on Wednesday



Love a sale!! 



Getting some paper for Allyson's birthday banner! 






Look what we found!! 

Isn't this too cute?? It's for kids 6 and up... too soon for this year, maybe next Christmas.



My teething little girl 









We came home from and look what came in the mail ...


BIRTHDAY STUFF !!!



I cannot believe that we are already doing her FIRST birthday.

Pumpkin Patch ... again

Wednesday we went to another pumpkin patch. Aubrey had a blast and Allyson did a lot better this time. 


The kids got to plant broccoli




Feed Fish 


They got to see animals, I didn't get any pics because some little girl (Ally) thought it was more fun to not sit in wagon and smack the camera when I was trying to take pictures. 
They had a big ol' pig and Aubrey said Mom look there's Pumba! :) 








Trying to get a picture of the two of them ... 



I love these girls!! 


look she had the bow on!!! 



and it's off






She had so much fun sitting with the pumpkins and touching/playing with the hay. I'm so surprised that she didn't once put it in her mouth.

Pumpkin Patch

We took a trip to the pumpkin patch today. Aubrey had a ton of fun. Allyson on the other hand ... it was her nap time and she was just cranky. 

We planted broccoli, got to see some animals, including a calf that was about an hour old and another that was less than 12 hours old. Oh my goodness they were adorable!! We also went on a hay ride, milked a "cow", read a story, played in a corn pit, jumped on hay and of course picked out a pumpkin!! 



Two sets of BFFs on the hay ride  


 Can you tell wasn't having it? 


 Riding in the wagon 



 Milking a cow 

playing in the corn pit. On of her favorite parts of the day.  


jumping on the hay 



I was trying to get a nice picture of Aubrey & Ally. Ally did not want to look at the camera to save her life. 








As soon as I put her down on the ground in the hay next to the pumpkins. Her attitude changed completely. I just should have left her with the pumpkins at the beginning of the trip.




A smile - there's my happy girl!! 




Mommy's little pumpkins 


my Allyson needs to start wearing a bow again instead of ripping them off!!! Ugh!!!
