A few Ocotober images from around the house~

I found this yummy velvet pumpkin from Blissful Living

Ordered this wonderful Penny Mcalister pumpkin head box from Bayberry Cove....about flipped when it arrived in its ginormous package. He's huge! The picture doesn't do him justice....I hate to pack him up~~I've enjoyed his cute face for several weeks now.

Between tonight & Sunday night we have trick or treat at the same time Savannah has her last home game at the same time Dan needs to be the administrator on at his school's football game, region cheer competition, 2 girls have parties, one sleep over, work on Sunday , & Young Life banquet & then trying to not eat too much of my girls chocolate loot!
Not exactly sure what everyone is going to be this year. When they were little we always went way out on fun costumes. Of course they would pass them down each year plus endless days of dress up. Now that they are older I really hate to pony up bucks for a costume I'm certain they'll wear only once, especially with Christmas less than 2 months away. Caroline was a great sport this year & decided to be a cheerleader for the second year in a row....atta girl!

Savannah & her buddies were M&M's last year...way too cute.

Emily went to a costume party last weekend. We pulled up to the house ( new friends who's parents I don't know ) to see their yard all decorated in a charming grave yard theme. Emily, sportin her twister costume, was certainly the only one in preppy primary color garb. She told me one of her friends was dressing up as a "dead fairy".....what the heck? When Madison heard that, she chimed in one of her friends was going to be a 'dead cheerleader'---maybe we need a family inservice on choosing friends!
the only dead thing around here will be me sunday night around 9:30!
.... so between the M&M's and the Twister costume & a perky pigtailed cheerleader with a golden retriever, hopefully we can spread some trick or treat cheer! :)

a few pre-digital camera fall oldies....

one more thing....if any one is interested i will be listing some Bear Feet mary janes on Ebay. These were our all time favorite brand...super soft & comfy. Ordered them on line for Caroline & she never wore them. here is their little bio~

Halloween decorations - A+. I love Bayberry Cove! The Twister dress is so creative - what a treat to see! But my favorite comment was about family inservice re: friend choices! :-) Don't we wish we could choose for them sometimes? Your girls aren't following that trend and look absolutely darling no matter what the "dead whatever's" are doing!

Pixel Fairy Princess said...

OMG - I loved everyone of those images!!! I want you to take a day and come over and decorate my house! I am always so inspired when you post images of your house!

I love the walk down memory lane :D Madison is perfect as Dorothy! I can so see her as that ~~ And what a pumpkin little Caroline was - OMG - all your girls are just stunning!

Have fun with all your events :D

Ladybug hugs,

What wonderful pictures! My kids aren't allowed to dress up scary. There are too many gross costumes out there. It was nice to see how cute your girls dress up. Have a great weekend.

Wendy said...

Kasey said...

The Golf Widow said...

How fun! I loved your girls being M&Ms. Twister was really cute. I have no idea what's up with all the "dead", "mean", "Bad" themed costumes either.

Great idea with the pumpkins in the fireplace!

Your youngest daughter looks just like your older daughters but a blonde...crazy! They are all beautiful!
