And Finally...Halloween!

Okay, so after this post I think I am officially caught up with blogging! My sweet girls opted to not dress up this year...kidding! They were an angel and a little devil--which is why I said they didn't dress up, this kind of fits their personalities!

My little devil was not in the posing mood...

My Girls Wanna Party All the Time!

Olivia and I were introduced to public school "parties" this fall. I have parties in quotations, because I am of the belief that some dried banana chips, pretzels and applesauce a party does not make! But the kids still had fun, so I guess that's all that matters!

Olivia and Ian...heaven help me

And even though Ana Blair only goes to preschool one day a week they invited her to come for their party lunch!

She loves her fork!

Where is your bow child??

The Pumpkin Patch!

Most of you know me well enough to know that fall is my absolute favorite season, Halloween is my favorite holiday (well, at least until Christmas gets here) and that the Pumpkin Patch is one of my favorite family outings of the year!
This year we went with our good friends and neighbors, The Farley Family

Don't you wonder what they are talking about?

The search for the perfect pumpkin continues!

...And sorry I am still posting Fall and Halloween...I will eventually get caught up!

Young Love

Olivia has grown up so much since starting kindergarten. But the biggest change is that she apparently has a "boyfriend." And this is the joker she has chosen. Haha! I am just kidding. He is actually a neighbor of our's and is a very sweet kid. In Olivia's words, "Ian is the prettiest boy in the driveway." Hilarious!

Pumpkin Face is Two!

AND in my absence, pumpkin face had a birthday!
Sweet Ana Blair,
You have changed our lives forever, you are the part of our family that we never knew we were missing. You are SO different from your sister, but there is nothing any better than watching the two of you together. You are so vocal, so strong-willed and quick-tempered. But you are so smart, so funny and just plain cute. No one can stay mad at you for long, believe me...we have tried!
You make every day longer (because you like to wake up with the sun!), but without a doubt--you make every day better!

She's a Big Girl Now!

I know its been a long time since I I am going to give it a shot again!
Last month, Ana Blair started preschool one day a week. I was a little nervous, but she LOVES it! Her teacher is Ms. Jessica, who was also in Olivia's room when she first started preschool and a good friend from church, so that made it an easy decision.
Here she is before her first day.

This is her "Take a picture of me, Mom" pose

And here is my big girl carrying in her lunchbox (as she has done every single day since then). We had to borrow Big Sister's lunchbox for the first day, because her super cute Owl lunchbox wasn't here yet.

Kindergarten Rocks!

Last Wednesday started her first staggered day of kindergarten. She only went one day last week, will go on Wednesday this week and then starts full time the following Tuesday. I'm not sure if that has made it easier or harder on Crazy Mommy!
The night before...backpack packed and ready to go!

6:45 wake up call from the whole family!

My big girl, getting ready for the big day

What first day of school would be complete without a pumpkin face??

This is Olivia laughing at the mommies and daddies crying in "The Night Before Kindergarten"

Ready to go

Me and my girl

She loved seeing the school buses!

We couldn't go empty-handed to kindergarten!

"We are so Fortunate to have you as our Teacher"

Walking in...

Down the big, long hall to her class (all the way at the end!)

Olivia had a great first day of kindergarten! She loved it and is ready to go back! And believe it or not, Mommy did pretty well--all things considered!
Although I have heard from seasoned professionals that it is the first full day of school that it really hits time will tell!

The Beach

I am finally posting beach pics! It was such a great trip! It was such a whirlwind trip! I wish I had more pics...200 is not enough! I am ready to go back!
The first leg of the trip was spent with our good friends, The Dunavant family...we had such a great time with our four girls!

Love this one and her daddy...two peas in a pod!

Our poor effort at a family shot!

...And The Shark! Olivia is so excited to be a Cookie Shark...I had to stop her from posing like this in EVERY picture!

Love her

She is my poolside cuddle buddy!
