We turned out a TON of candy this year and fun was had by all.

Paisley is getting away from Ethen's scary face. She was terrified of all skeleton masks this year. It didn't matter if you took it off she didn't want anything to do with them.
Luke was sooo sweet and would hold Paisley's hand to help her along.
Luke was SWEATING in his vinyl costume since it was like 70 degrees and finally he couldn't take it anymore and had to get it halfway off.

I actually love to carve pumpkins and the only bad part about living in TX is that you have to wait till the day before halloween to carve or they will shrivel up since we are still pretty warm here.

He wouldn't touch the gooey insides of the pumpkin, but had no problem with this! hahaha

The final product :) Ethen's, Phoebe's , Luke & Paisley's

Luke's preschool Halloween party. He was the hardest hitter on the pinata! Some kids barely tapped it, but he was full out swings. And he was sweet enough to let Paisley share his food.

A friend put together a little halloween party for the toddlers and Paisley and Luke had a great time. Luke was a pro at eating donuts off a string.

I bought this dress for Paisley off isn't it just so cute? It is a ghost. The best part is that Phoebe can wear it as a shirt too! SO it is like getting 2 outfits for 1.

We finally had our one game Saturday where the team Phoebe cheer for played Ethen's team. It was nice to get it all done in one sitting. Aren't they so cute?! Oh and the Cowboys won 26-0!

We also had a fabulous sunset to watch. Look at all those colors!

We have lived here in Texas for almost 8 years now and can you believe we have never made it to the state fair?! So this year we finally did it. This is no rinky dink fair now, it is the largest state fair of all I think. Tons of crazy rides and games, and lots of funny shows and things to see. We took the kids out of school early and headed to see what everything is all about. I would venture to say it was very much about the fried food. We even tried a fried snickers, and the kids were introduced to their 1st funnel cake! Paisley's favorite was a giant turkey leg on a stick. Somehow I even got talked into going on a crazy spinning ride and was glad it was out last thing because I felt sick for over and hour afterwards, but man was it fun! I wanted to take pictures of all of it, but my battery died halfway through the day. I should have charged it. We watched a bird show, dancing dogs, baby pig races, and a stunt show! Here is a little sampling of our day.

Big Tex says Luke is tall enough to ride :) !!!!

Scott feeling a bit off balance after Phoebe takes him on a crazy, fast ride. She was smiling the whole time. I don't know where this girl gets all her thrillseeking from, but she sure LOVES it.

The ride of choice- motorcycles

Happy Birthday Mom!
You have taught me everything important that I know. I love you so much and hope that I can be half as great a mother as you have been. You are the most talented woman that I know and have made me the person that I am today. Have an AWESOME day :)


We had back to back games this last saturday which made it nice to get it all done with in one trip, but did end up being a little long for Paisley to handle in the bleachers. Here are some fun shots of the Ethen and Phoebe.

There's Ethen in the white cleats in the middle


Ready to block

Shouting out her cheers!
