Happy Halloween!

I hope that you are having a wonderful Halloween so far! Lila is so excited to put on her strawberry costume and go trick-or-treating for the first time tonight! The weather is perfect, not too hot and not too cold! Alli has had a good Halloween so far as well, and I'm sure she will enjoy walking around the neighborhood with us tonight!

SEC Family

Our poor girls are so confused about who to root for on game days since I went to Auburn and Josh went to Alabama. But, to make them even more confused, we also go for Georgia (since we're from Atlanta) as well as Ole Miss (because my brother is a senior there this year) when they aren't playing Auburn or Alabama. Today, while they were dressed in their Auburn outfits, Josh had to give them a Big Al stuffed animal so that both teams could be equally represented while rooting for Georgia against Florida and Auburn again Ole Miss (sorry brother!).

Finally Fall

Texas finally got the cold front that the weathermen had been promising for the past few weeks last night! There is a high of 60 degrees today, and it feels wonderful! Lila even got to wear tights with her dress (like it was meant to be worn), and she was really excited about it-not sure why though, I hated wearing tights when I was little! It's not the prettiest day, since it's really cloudy out, but tomorrow is supposed to be sunny with a high of mid-60s. Yay for the FALL weather that has finally arrived!

Now, I just hope that this was enough to scare the mosquitos away for a while!

Dewberry Farm

Yesterday, we met our friends, The Disibios, at Dewberry Farm in Brookshire, Texas to have some Fall fun (although it still feels very much like Summer here!!).  There is a huge pumpkin patch, corn maze, pig races, petting zoo, rides, and so many activities to enjoy at the farm.  The girls are too small for a lot of the rides and games, so we will be sure to come back again next year!

We got to the farm right when it opened, stayed for about three hours, and still didn't get to do everything that there is to do there. Lila had a great time leading us all through the corn maze, and thankfully, didn't get us lost since we were following her. She also had a good time playing with and climbing on the pumpkins. Alli even enjoyed being in the pumpkin patch (I think it's because she was finally out of her car seat!). We might go back in a couple of months for their Christmas activities, and if we get ambitious, cut down our own Christmas tree! ...although we will most likely still be getting our tree from Home Depot to make it easier! It was such a fun, exhausting, day at Dewberry Farm, and I can't wait to go back next year!

Pumpkin Patch

Josh had another unexpected day off (for the record, most of his days off are unexpected, and we just have to take advantage!), so we went to pick out some pumpkins at a local church's pumpkin patch. Lila is in love with pumpkins, so we knew that she'd have fun with a whole field full of them, and she surely did! She didn't know where to start and kept running from pile to pile to try and pick up the pumpkins. It was pretty funny to watch her try and pick up the giant pumpkins, but made quite the mess when she found the pumpkins that were more her size.  Of course I took a ton of pictures because I just love how bright orange pumpkins make the perfect photo op!

When we purchased our pumpkins, the man working the booth gave Lila stickers with which to decorate her little pumpkin. She had a great time sticking the little eyes, nose, and mouth on her little pumpkin.

Alli's first "car" ride

Lila used to LOVE this pink car walker, and I'm happy to see that she is sharing so nicely with her little sister. Last night, before bed, she gave Alli a ride in her old car. From the look on Alli's face, I'd say that she enjoyed it!
Lila hasn't given it up entirely though. As you can see, she climbs in it on occasion; however, she has a bit of trouble getting out!
 "help, I'm stuck!"

Lila and her sister's shoes

Lila is obsessed with shoes and plays with any that she finds (or steals). This morning before church, while the girls were sitting on the couch, Lila saw it as a prime opportunity to steal Alli's shoes for playtime. You can tell by Alli's face that she's not too thrilled with having her shoe stollen and wishes for it back. They are so funny together!
 "Alli, I'm going to take your shoe"
 "Got it!"
 Alli: "please give it back" Lila: "I'm trying to put it on, just be still"
Lila: "Alli, you have stinky feet!" Alli: "Come on, give it back!"
 "How do you work these shoes anyways?"
 "All better, thank you!"
