Fall Festival Fun...

In honor of the letter "F" and the fall season. Zoey's pre-school class had a Fall Festival. Zoey wore her autumn fairy costume for the event.

Zoey was so excited to bring the Minnie Mouse pumpkin she made for the pumpkin decorating contest. All the kids had such cute pumpkins.

My aunt and I worked the Duck Pond and Pick-A-Pop booths.

The kids had a great time. Their first stop was the butterfly joy jump.

Next, was the bubble booth. This was definitely a favorite for the kids.

My favorite station was the apple decorating booth. What a cute idea!!!

The kids had a great time making faces on their apples with icing, candy, and sprinkles. It didn't hurt that you got to eat your creation!

Zoey enjoyed the make-up and face-painting stations. She had her hair sprayed pink, her nails painted, and a cupcake painted on her face.

I think the most memorable event was the chocolate pudding eating competition. The kids had a race to see who could eat all the pudding off their plate first without using their hands.

These smiles made the pudding mess well worth it!

A Happy Halloween...

October has always been one of my favorite months. I love the cooler air, the pumpkins, and Halloween. The highlight for me this October was watching my two babies trick-or-treat. I loved the way Zoey held Zane's hand and helped him to each door. I treasure moments like this!

After much debate, Zoey decided to dress up like a mermaid this Halloween.

When I saw this baby duck costume I could not pass it up!

Hannah Montana (aka: Kate Hagaman) joined us for trick-or-treating around the square.

Zoey and Kate are great friends! I think these girls used a whole can of glitter spray between the two of them.
All three children had one mission...CANDY!!!

By the time we left the town square, Zane had eaten nearly a whole sucker...wrapper and all!

Ms. Montana said her bucket was even too heavy to carry. To top the sugar high off....Halloween cupcakes.

It made one Mama's day watching these kiddos have such a happy Halloween!!!
