Pumpkin Carving Family Home Evening

For Family Home Evening this week we had some of our friends over to carve pumpkins. We were going to do it just as a family but it is always more fun in a group don't you think? It was kind of spur of the moment, but I am so glad everyone was able to come carve pumpkins and eat yummy treats. All the pumpkins turned out really well too!

Group Shot minus Valerie who was taking the picture. She did not want her overdue pregnant belly to be documented.
The kids had a lot of fun playing together.

My Little Batman

This week we went to the Arboretum again for Toddler Tuesday where they had FACE PAINTING. I was a little reluctant to stand in line with Liam because I was not sure if he would sit still for them to paint his face. To my surprise, he was a champ. He not only let them paint his face, but then didn't touch it or smear it for the rest of the day. It was fun having a little batman following me around.

State Fair of Texas

Roland and I went to the State Fair of Texas last weekend. It was something we were told we should go to at least once while we lived in Dallas. It was super crowded, but fun. I really couldn't believe how many people were there. It was also huge! There were tons of booths, rides and exhibits to look at. Our favorite things were the ferris wheel and the petting zoo. So although I am not usually a fan of crowds, and it was one of our more expensive dates, it was fun and I am glad we went at least once. And as always it is nice to get out just Roland and I. I am really digging this babysitting swap.
Semi-decent picture of us. I think I look a little scary.

Liam bed head

Liam woke up from his nap with some major bed head. So I took some pictures. He has also really been getting into lounging on the couch. So he got his cookie, his blanket and went to the couch to relax. What a fun little boy!

Fall is here!

Fall is here in Dallas and I am loving it. Fall is definitely my favorite season. Cool weather, beautiful colors, pumpkins, hay rides, petting zoos, the list could go on and on. And although the beautiful colors part doesn't really apply to Dallas, Liam and I were able to get a little taste of fall at the Arboretum. He really enjoyed the pumpkin patch and the petting zoo.

Liam's Halloween Costume

For the past few weeks I have been working on Liam's Halloween costume. It has been quite the task because I am not experienced at sewing and have never made anything from a pattern. But with much help from Valerie and Melissa I learned a lot and I finished the super cute turtle costume. I feel accomplished. I also feel ahead because Halloween isn't until the end of the month. Go Me! So here is the finished product. I am so glad it turned out so well and it is something I will probably do again.
