Madison Heights Fall Festival

Sunday October 30 was Madison Heights fall festival. It is such a fun time of fellowship with sweet friends! This year we had the first ever Chili/Gumbo cook-off which was delicious! There were so many activities...bounce houses, pumpkin painting, face painting, a hayride and list goes on! One of my favorites was the photo cut-out...because Wesley and I made it!! I think Mahlon and Sara Beth were more proud than we were! They kept saying "Mom, I like your punkin" so sweet!!

Halloween Weekend

We had a busy Saturday!
We got up Saturday morning in full bulldog attire and headed to the Township in Ridgeland for their festival and enjoyed yummy food from "Sunshine Pizza"(aka Soulshine Pizza) a little shopping, horseback riding, and bounce houses! So much fun!!

Then it was time for our Neighborhood Halloween party! Truck or treating and Tailgating and a hayride!
Our little knight!

This little Cheerleader couldn't part with her uniform to be a princess for the night! I think she may have brought the Bulldogs luck this week! Oh and this is her Mali dog also in costume...she is wearing the lady bug costume that Sara Beth wore her very first Halloween!

Truck or treating with Mrs. Susan!

What a busy day but we had so much fun!!

The first of many!

Today Mahlon and Sara Beth got to wear their costumes to school! Saturday we have a Halloween Party in our neighborhood, Sunday is the fall festival at church and Monday is Halloween and Trick-or-Treating! So there are about to be a lot of pictures on this blog with these precious costumes! Doc and Cheri brought these special surprises back from their trip to New York! And Aunt Lani found the shield and princess wand to match!
ATTACK! The cutest Knight in shining armor EVER!

Adorable little princess...She keeps changing her mind who she is...Rapunzal, Jasmine, Cinderella, Aurora...She can play the part perfectly in her royal ball gown!

I know I am partial, but aren't these the cutest trick-or-treaters you have EVER seen!
Sara Beth may never wear anything else again and we are going to have to watch Mahlon to make sure he doesn't take anyone out with his shield and sword!!

Bday Weekend!

Lani and Brian came to Madison to celebrate their birthdays this year! On Saturday we went to Starkville for the football game...child free!!! Thanks to Cheri! We had so much fun and got home just in time for Birthday Cake before the twins bedtime! They were sooooo excited to help blowout candles and Sara Beth was so proud the cake was pink!

It was a busy weekend that went by too quickly but we had fun and were so glad to finally get to see Aunt Lani's baby bump....
meet Braden Tyler!!

Thanks Cheri for keeping the twins busy all day so mommy and daddy could play in Starkville!

Pumpkin Decorating!

It didn't take too long to start decorating once we got home with our pumpkins. This year instead of carving pumpkins we painted them. Mahlon's is mostly red with a few splashes of Sissy's pink paint and Sara Beth's is pink with a little red mixed in! We added 4 green handprints at the top to look like leaves! These kiddos love to paint! I love watching them...they are so cute concentrating!

Pumpkin Patch!

We had so much fun at the pumpkin patch this year! This was our second year to go with our friends from Madison Heights! And Cheri got to go this year so I had a little extra help! We went on a long hayride and saw lots of cows, goats, donkeys, the catfish pond, sunflowers and of course lots of PUMPKINS!

Time for Fall!

It's cooling off and time to decorate! We had a big day of decorating and made our first scarecrow! Sara Beth named him "scarecrow, scarecrow" how orignal! Mahlon calls him "daddy" because he has on daddy's shoes and shirt! They Love him and talk to him daily, knock his head off, steal his hat...
They were big helpers stuffing his belly and sprinkling straw EVERYWHERE!

Then I made a few little signs for our yard!

Day in the Country

Day in the Country is the 1st Saturday in October every year and I think we have been the last 3 years! It is so much and this year was the most fun! Mahlon and Sara Beth really enjoyed all of the activities! And half of our neighborhood was there for us to play with!
A train ride with the Brabhams!
Sweet treats with daddy!

Bounce house with Kaden and Brycen!

Petting zoo!
Pony rides!

They had a blast and were worn out when we got home!
