From Scarecrow to a Princess all in one day....

Today was such a busy day for Kara. She had her Halloween Dance Recital at the mall at 1pm. She was dancing to the song "If I Only Had A Brain". All the girls looked really cute and I had a blast dressing her up to look like one!
After the recital we had to come home and clean her up for her very first birthday party for a classmate. She was invited to a Princess Tea Party for a sweet little girl who turned 4. She had a blast at the party and didn't want to leave.

Thrifty Ice Cream Rocks!

After the pumpkin patch we took the kids to get a Thrifty Ice Cream at Rite Aid. This was their first time getting ice cream from there. Of course they wanted to use the money they earned to buy it and Kara insisted that she got to pay the lady!
Michael had to share his messy face...I love it!

My sweet mom...most likely she won't care for this picture but I love it! I love that sweet little grin that I've seen all my life.

sorry I just can't get enough of this sweet face
Now Kara is a serious ice cream eater. She licks every last drop from the spoon!

...again with the spoon onto the cone....serious concentration going on there

my two cuties having a GREAT time!

College Pumpkin Patch

Last weekend we took the kids to the Merced College Pumpkin Patch. The kids thought it was cool because they got to go out into the field and choose their pumpkins.
We will definately go back there again next year! Prices were GREAT!

Kara wasn't too happy about facing the sun!

They were yelling for daddy to hurry up!

Having Fun...

We had costume day at school since we tracked off for 2 weeks. I was very excited to dress up and decided to be a witch! I've never been a witch before and my mom made me a wonderful dress and did a GREAT job on my make up!!

My students loved my costume along with all the other 1st grade students. I went around and read the book, A Very Brave Witch (love that book) to all the other 1st grade classes and had a blast going into the other rooms.

Can't wait until next year!!

Halloween Dance

My nieces Chelsea and Scarlett had their Halloween Dance for school on Friday. Scarlett went as an Indian and Chelsea was a butterfly.
Silly Scarlett
They were both being crazy and then Kara had to get in the shot
There ya go...a sweet innocent Indian

This is her "serious" indian look

My mom did Chelsea's hair

Close up of her make up
The wings are actually mine from an old costume...I love them.
I love this picture. We told Chelsea to turn around and Kara did the same thing!

For Sally

So Adrian and Sally came to the Redneck Party and Sally claimed she couldn't find anything "redneck" to wear.
Adrian look pretty decent.
So this is what I call:

Redneck Adrian and his High Class Gal Sally

From the back...too the chairs!

Redneck Party Pics....sorry it's a lot!

Corinna wanted to celebrate her 35th birthday party with a Redneck Theme. My mom and I planned the entire thing. We had a great time planning it and had a blast at the party!

It's a lot of pictures but I couldn't resist sharing them all.
