Our little Tinkerbells






Here are the cutest Tinkerbells around! I must admit, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Magnolia's costume. The wig definitely makes the costume complete! Ziggy is seriously the best dog in the world. She let us dress her up and didnt even try to get the costume off! They are just beyond adorable! Happy Halloween!

Orange Dinner






We had our biggest Orange Dinner yet on Saturday night. 28 people showed up to help us make our annual Orange Dinner. This year each family brought some orange food to share. It was so much fun to see what everyone brought and we had a HUGE orange spread!

Carving a Pumpkin






We carved a pumpkin last night. Magnolia takes after her father when it comes to scooping out the "guts" of the pumpkin... they both find it disgusting. Good thing this mom is not afraid of a little slim or I dont think we would have been able to finish the project. :)

First Snow




We had our first big snow fall yesterday. Let me first say that on Monday it was 80 and yesterday we got about a foot of snow. Thank goodness it is warming back up quickly so it will all be gone by Halloween. Magnolia was beyond excited to get out there and play in it. We ended up having a ton of fun because our neighbors Elle and Bella came out and played with us.

The Pledge



Magnolia has learned so many things at school and its only October! She continues to LOVE school and wishes she could go every day. One thing she has learned is The Pledge of Allegiance. Here is an adorable video of her saying the pledge and then singing a song about the "beautiful flag."

Pumpkin patch











We had our annual trip to the pumpkin patch this weekend. The weather was a bit warm, but all in all a perfect day! Magnolia had a ton of fun running around and looking for the perfect pumpkin. We learned that her idea and our idea of the perfect pumpkin were completely different. She picked out an itty bitty green "runt" that never grew into a big pumpkin. Once she found that one there was no convincing her of any other pumpkin.
