We enjoyed attending our cousins football games! Nothing says fall quite like the helmets crashing and whistles blowing! The girls loved cheering for their cousins (the fact that Casey's team was The Bears made it even more fun! How many 7 year old girls out there have their own Bears jerseys??)
In late October, we took the girls to Disney on Ice. I remember going as a kid (they were called Ice Capades back then before Disney ruled the world) and it's something we've wanted to do with the girls for quite a while. I'm actually proud of myself for holding off for as long as we did. I typically jump the gun and want to take them places when they aren't quite old enough to enjoy it. They were the perfect ages to enjoy it for the first time. We all had a blast (Nana came with us too) and can't wait to go back!
Megan wanted to dress up like a disney princess but Katelyn did not. I promise you, when Megan left the house, none of her belly was showing....lesson learned by mom!
I got to chaperone Megan's class on a fieldtrip to the Fire Department. We were close enough to walk and had a great weather day. They learned about safety and what to do in case there was a fire at home. They also each got to knock over a cone with the fire hose. What a fun outing!
I am so thankful that Megan makes friends fairly easily. Her best little friend moved away last month and I'm very thankful she has made some new friends making it a little easier to not see her friend every day. This is a picture of Megan and a new classmate. They really enjoy each other's company and every time I volunteer in her class, her new little friend tells me what great friends they are! What a couple of cutie patooties!
To be quite honest, Halloween is my least favorite "holiday" with the kids. We focus on the non-scary and spooky aspects and do our best to celebrate the fall harvest season instead of THE actual Date. Katelyn made cute Dorothy and Megan made an adorable little kitty. Here are some front door shots before we headed out for the evening. Megan did a great job of staying "in character" for each photo op!
Before we headed out to our harves party, we stopped by our neighbor's home to say hi to our friends. All the girls looked so cute!
We had fun at First Evangelical's Harvest Party. Katelyn attends preschool there, so she enjoyed seeing some friends and they both enjoyed playing games and winning prizes.
Our last stop of the evening was a drive-by to the Storaci's neighborhood to say hi to a few friends in the neighborhood. What a fun night!
