Happy Halloween

Just a few pictures to cover our Halloween celebrations.

First glimpse inside a pumpkin.

She wouldn't touch the slimy seeds but helped take out the carved bits.

Tah dah!

I love our jack-o-lanterns this year!

Now on to the main event.  This year was Lena's first year out trick-or-treating.  We met some friends so she would be with other kids.  She loved it!

The cutest monster on the block

Starting to get brave at this point.

At the end of the night...sweet success. Her first bite of candy (ever. at least that I know of).

Catching Up

Once again it's been a little bit since I last wrote a blog post.  I think fall is a busy time of year for everyone.

So first up, I got my Village of Hawk Run Hollow back from the framer.  I just love it!

Last week my husband and I took a mini vacation up to the mountains, toddler free.  It was so pretty with all the leaves changing.  What a great way to celebrate his birthday and our wedding anniversary.

This is "our tree".  We had some wedding photos taken under this tree, so we always try to find it.

Look who turned 2!

Our little princess.

Fall at the Farmer's Market

It's been a busy fall so far. We just now got out to the farmer's market for some gourds and pumpkins. (Mostly gourds b/c Lena's school has a pumpkin patch where proceeds go to the church.)

Our first stop was the pumpkin house.  Lena really liked it.

She loved sitting on the hay bales.

And then there were the pumpkins and gourds for sale.

So many choices...

Next weekend is the fall festival at her school.  Stay tuned...

So busy

First off... Tah Dah!  I cannot believe that my Village of Hawk Run Hollow is finished.  It took me nearly 14 months to complete but it's so lovely and worth it.

Here is the completed dreaded block 12.

And then I had to go back and complete block 9.

Also busy because we traveled back down to Florida (we were just there in June) for my brother's wedding.  Look at my beautiful family.

Such a sweet girl.  She loves getting all dressed up for special occasions.

And I've been busy!  Here I am after completing the Women's Only 5k.

Let's compare to us last year...where Lena has gotten bigger and I've gotten much smaller.  Go me!
