Here the girls were checking out the inventory we left out for the kids in the neighborhood.  And, check out Tim's pumpkin carvings! Super impressed mister!

And, they took some on the way out...

All the kiddos ready to go trick-or-treating

Sweet girl!

You better not even think of taking one of my candy buckets Mommy!

We ended up in 2 packs, the older kids were zooming thru the houses getting their candy while the younger 2 kind of slowpoked their way thru.  Ella would go up to the houses and ask "What do you have?"  or "I want a lollipop" or "do you have green?"  And, she wouldn't let anyone hold her bucket even though it was becoming heavier than herself and no one except me she would let hold even though all  her grandparents were walking with us.  These toddlers are funny!

TBJ Picnic

Ella's school picnic was supposed to be in September but bcuz of conflicts they moved it to the week of Halloween which was a lot of fun for the kids because they got to come in their Halloween costumes.  The kids Loved it!  They had pony rides, train rides, a police car and fire truck to check out with the officers giving out candy and a ginormous bake sale!

Disney Symphony

My Mom and I took Avery to see the Plano Symphony perform all the Disney classics at the Eisemann center.  Before the show they had so many instruments available for the kids to try out.   It was a bit crazy and totally loud and off-key obviously, but Aves had so much fun trying them all out!  The show was Amazing especially bcuz they had 4 singers that accompanied the orchestra and they were so entertaining.  We all enjoyed it so much!

After the show was over we took her across the way to show her the hotel that Tim and I had our reception at.  It's hard to believe that it's already been 10 years!  I fall in love with him more and more each day :)

But out of it all, I would have to say that her favorite part of the afternoon was running through these fountains outside the hotel.   I almost didn't let her go through them bcuz we had no extra clothes to go home in but it looked so much fun and you're only a kid once, right, that we just let her have a blast, and she sure did!!  These pics of her just make me happy and want to smile!!

Chihuly Nights - Take 1

Tim and I love going out to the Arboretum.  It's so nice to just walk around in such beauty and we love taking the kids there because they always have a fun time.  But, the Chihuly exhibit has been there starting last Spring and it was only supposed to run through October and I really wanted to go check it out at night before it left.  It would have been perfect to go see a concert and enjoy it too, but of course all the concerts were sold out by the time I booked our tickets. It was such a nice evening, the weather was great, we picked up some delish sandwiches at Jimmy's down in Dallas where we've been wanting to try, had ourselves some wine,  music and a picnic and spent a few hours checking out these amazing pieces of art!  Unbelievable!
