Daddy and Jaylie

Hannah Montana and the 102nd Dalmation

Tonight we started off celebrating Halloween at our church. The church did a "trunk or treat"All the car's trunks had a theme. It was really cute. After the church festivities, we headed over to our friend's, Stacey and Brad, house for dinner. Her mom made us some delicious chili. Counting adults, I bet we had 30-40 people there. After we ate, we all went trick or treating around the neighborhood. Skyler was happy to get to trick or treat with her friends. Jaylie wasn't sure what to think. She liked getting the candy, but she couldn't quite figure out why everybody looked so strange. She especially did not like houses that had scary decorations. Anyway, Jaylie was a Dalmatian(she loves dogs) and Skyler, of course, was Hannah Montana. Anyone that knows Jaylie, knows that she is obsessed with anything dogs. I'm not quite sure how this came about considering I'm not a big (in the house type) animal fan. Ok, I'm not an animal fan at all. People think were mean for not getting her a dog. But, I think it is a big step letting her be a dog for Halloween. I must say she was quite adorable! Happy Halloween!!!

Carving the Pumpkin

Jason is gone hunting this weekend with his dad and brother. We have been so busy lately that we haven't had a chance to carve our pumpkin. So...the girls and I decided that today was the day. Skyler picked out the perfect design on the computer(one her mother could actually do). Jaylie started gagging when she reached in to pull out the inside of the pumpkin (Skyler and I call it-the guts). That was enough for her, she ended up playing on the swing set the entire time. She would occasionally come over and put her hat on the pumpkin saying "the pumpkie needs a hat". Skyler helped pull out "the guts" and then I was on my own for carving. While I carved, Skyler took a knife and dug up worms and planted pumpkin seeds in the ground so that we could have our own pumpkin patch next year. :) All in all, it was a good time. The picture shows the finished product, along with the girls "baby pumpkins".

September Vacation to Clearwater Florida

The second half of our vacation was to Clearwater Florida. It was very relaxing. We stayed right on the ocean. We went to the ocean everyday, parasailed, and walked the pier at night. We were very tempted to stay and take up residence there:)

September Vacation to Orlando Florida

Lunch at Chef Mickey's with Minnie, Donald, Mickey, Goofy, and Pluto.

We spent the first half of our week in Orlando. We went to Magic Kingdom, Sea World, and Blizzard Beach. The girls had a blast. Jaylie is so deprived, this was her second trip to Disney World before she is even two. It was so fun to see her face when she saw Mickey and Minnie.

A Day at the Pumpkin Patch

As soon as we got to the pumpkin patch, Jaylie found her pumpkin(that she could pick up by herself). Too bad it was green and yellow.
Skyler going through the corn maze.

Jaylie and Skyler each got their own "little" pumpkins. Skyler painted hers at the farm, but we decided Jaylie would be better off coloring hers with markers at home.
We took a hayride to the pumpkin patch. It took us a while to find the perfect pumpkin. Jaylie thought we needed to take all the pumpkins home.

Hannah Montana Concert

Skyler and I recently went to the much anticipated Hannah Montana concert in St. Louis. Skyler and her friends looked like little rock stars. It was adorable!!! We all had a blast.
