"Happier" Halloween

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. Actually, I love all things fall! We've crammed a lot of fun fall activities into the last few days and some did not exactly go as well as planned. I was really hoping that three happy girls got of the bus this afternoon, because trick or treat night had arrived. Thankfully, there were no grouches...just Batman, a cat, and a mouse (duh)!
While the big girls planned to go with friends, Stella and I were heading out alone for some treats.
Pumpkin carving may not have been as good a time as I had hoped. But, trick or treat night...nailed it

Pumpkin Carving with a Side of Grouchiness

We are rolling right along through Fall and checking things off our Fall to-do list faster than you can say "pumpkin pie"! Last night, it was pumpkin carving night. While the girls scooped the guts out of the pumpkins, I made some doughnuts. Of course by the time I was done, the kitchen was covered with pumpkin goo and the girls were getting grouchy. Sometimes, even though in my head I clearly have a perfect picture of how things will be fun and everyone will get along and be happy, it doesn't always work out that way. But, we power through and make the best of it! In the end, we have three jack o' lanterns.


I would have loved to get a picture of all three together, but Madelyn refused. :(

Oh well, maybe next year! ;)

Another Year Cancer Free

Getting a mammogram...not my favorite thing to do.
However, as a breast cancer survivor, they become pretty routine.
Today was my yearly mammogram and I am thrilled to say, I made it another year cancer free!

Fall Fun

Autumn has always been my favorite season. I love the colors, the cooler temps, and warm cozy sweaters. Today, we celebrated fall with our traditional trip to World's End State Park. We had a cookout, walked in the woods, looked for the prettiest leaves, and enjoyed some much needed relaxation. It was nice...very windy and somewhat cold...but nice. Back to the real world tomorrow. Boo!

Happy Sunday!

A Visit from the Tooth Fairy

Stella had been wiggling another loose tooth for a few days. Yesterday, she got off the school bus with that tooth just hanging there, sticking out, and looking crazy. I really wanted to just yank it out, but she is a bit stubborn and had to do it herself. That tooth survived an afternoon snack and dinner! Finally, just before bed she went into another room and pulled it out. 
This is the smile of a little girl that is so proud of herself! Also, this is how big she was still smiling this morning. With school pictures coming up soon, we could have a very interesting first grade picture!
