Tacky Night

A few weeks ago at Cubbies the theme was "Tacky Night". Here is a pic of the girls in their tacky outfits. Mikayla had a great time picking out her outfit. She put a lot of thought into it. Meredith had her outfit on before she even knew it was tacky night - this is just everyday wear for her. I think M & M must get their since of style from me and Jarred - here's a pic of us at Beached Camp this summer.

Over Fall Break we had the chance to go to Thomaston, GA. This is where we used to live and where the girls were born. We stayed with our good friends C and K. It was great to catch up with them. K and I stayed up way too late each night tryign to get caught up on everything. The girls also enjoyed playing with L. Here are a few pics of the kids being silly.

One day we went to a bead store in town. You get to pick out your own beads and then make a necklace. The girls threaded all the beads themselves. It was a lot of fun.

Pumpkin Patch, Park, Picnic - All in one day!!! (now with pics)

Saturday we went to great Pumpkin Patch - Walden Farms in Smyrna. This is a great place to take kids. We fed the goats, petted pigs, played in a corn crib, went through a corn maze, went through a hay maze, climbed a hay mountain, swung on a tire swing, made a necklace, and picked out a pumpkin. The girls had a BLAST. This was our second year to go - I think we will make this an annual event. Here are just a few of the pics from the day.

The Family


Nana and Poppy with the kids

Meredith in the Corn Maze

Mikayla used this pulley system to feed the goats that were up high - she put food in a little cup and it pulled it up -this was great for her since she really doesn't care for animals
Meredith loving on the goats - she couldn't get enough of them, she let them eat right out of her hand and loved every minute of it!- we even had to go back to the goats at the end so should could give them a hug goodbye. Nana was in charge of pulling the train - choo choo

yes, this is a corn crib - it's kinda like a big sand box full of corn - the kids had a blast

Mikayla and Meredith

Cason at the top of Hay Mountain - what kind of parent lets their 18 month old climb to the top all alone??? shame on his mommy and daddy

After the pumpkin patch we had a picnic at the park - everyone(including Nana) enjoyed the park
