Kendall's first recital

We are so blessed to have a great baby sitter and piano teacher in Julie Harris.  She's great!  The kids love her so much, and I'm grateful for her sweet influence on my children.  Kendall was to nervous  she couldn't smile.  Garrett was so cute bouncing out the rhythm.    I love my kids.

 I must have done great on clearance last year because we had so many crafts and fun things to do in the Halloween box this year.    We made this amazing house,  and tons of other fun crafts.

 I also must have done well on cheap costumes because we pulled out this adorable bat costume, added jewels, feathers, and a petticoat underneath, a whole new costume, Bat Girl.  Alina used the Pink Fairy Princess costume once more.

 I'm going to have to say Kendall's was my favorite this year..  We bought this on clearance last year for $7.00.  Add dollar store flowers to the wings and crown,  two more layers of fabric to the bottom of the skirt for modesty sake and a fun mask, to get Monarch Butterfly Princess.  

 Garrett is obsessed with the Harry Potter books right now.  I've been putting him off to read them until he was in third grade, because I felt like they were a little intense for the age, but now he does want to stop at three like everyone tells me he should.  I guess I'll be reading the 600 pages of four to decide. Argh!  Landon was suppose to be Hedwig.  We had the cutest owl costume for him but he refused.  Grrrr!

Taryn's Preschool fun

 Taryn LOVES her preschool class.  Like most preschool classes, they have a pet Biscuit for everyone to take home and play with.  He class recently went to Ticongarogo Tree Farm for fall fun.

 The kids loved petting and feeding the animals.  Landon was more interested in how to catch a leaf before it touches the ground.  

 While picking pumpkins, Landon lost his overalls, then decided to proclaim his pumpkin, by sitting on them all.  I LOVE this boy.

The girls had a blast on the slides.
