Wrapping up FALL!

Well, what do you know I am playing catch up again?!?!? But, at least I am catching up. I wish I could be one of those moms who seems to be on top of everything, but let's face it.... I'm not. This may surprise some of you because I am the queen of Instagram and often that may LOOK like we have it together, but notice I said "look" :) Sometimes I do a pretty good job and other times I feel like I am treading water. I received another note from Evan Lilly's school to send in a family picture. I have been asked to do this since September! BUT, I already have her Christmas pj's at the house ready to be wrapped and YES, they are monogrammed. So, some things I can check off my list and others still remain there. Today, I can check off Halloween blog (along with other fall activities because I waited too long)!

Wrapping up FALL...... I know some people hate going straight from Halloween to Christmas but I absolutely LOVE it! I feel bad for Thanksgiving but let's face it, Christmas, especially with the little ones, is such a fun time of year! So, I am wrapping up our fall festivities today and moving on..... Mainly, because it's a rainy day and I figured this would be a great time to start the Christmas decor, and I like to have it up before we go out of town for Thanksgiving.

( Although, I did think this was funny :)

Back in October we went to our church fall carnival! It was a little too old for E but she loved playing on the playground.

We have had some pretty awesome weather here in the South and we were able to get some great mornings in at the park by our house. This is changing quickly as our lows are in the 20's this week!! Brrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!

Halloween was a huge success! Evan Lilly's costume was absolutely adorable and she had so much fun trick or treating on tiger lane. Unfortunately, we didn't stay for the game because that was our first big cold front and of course it hit us on Halloween night! I got her bag from Whimsical Stiches on Etsy. It turned out so cute! The price was great and the shop owner was wonderful to work with. I will definitely order from her again :) 

Since we got home early, we passed out candy to trick or treaters. It went fast but E had fun!

We have had lots of fun dinners out, trips to the mall, and raced in the True Blue 5k.

Evan Lilly did not want to be held for a family pic. I don't think she liked everyone looking at her!

Yesterday, we went to lunch with the Byroms, our dear friends from Alabama. We had a fun lunch at Aldo's and the kids were absolutely great.

Now on to our Christmas decor!!!! Chris doesn't know this is happening yet! YIKES! Hopefully, he'll be as excited as me! Hehehe Evan Lilly is already making her list.
