Magical Madness

A few sundays ago we decided to take advantage of our Disney passes and go to see the lights and holiday decorations at Disney. We also went to see some family that we haven't seen in years that was down from Louisiana. It started to rain on the way over but we traveled on in hopes it would stop. Makayla's nose started to run and she was feeling a little crummy. Turns out she is cutting her 2 year old molars!!! Who would have thought!
We made the best of the cold and rainy day with a grumpy toddler and just enjoyed the season and christmas spirit. We didn't take many but here are a few pictures from the day!

She LOVES the roller coaster. Every time we get off she says "Mommy I want to go again!"

First Hair Cut

I have trimmed Makayla's hair a few times my self but I have never given her a REAL haircut. Her hair was out of control. She looked ragged and a mess all the time. The ends of her hair were fine and then little wispy, fuzzy, out of controls madness. So I finally decided it was time to get her first hair cut!!!

Getting Started…She was not vary happy

All done!!!!
Her hair looks SO SO SO much better! Its a little short but super cute and a lot less messy. We both LOVE it!!!

Holiday Family Fun

I found this adorable gingerbread house at Wal-mart so Steve, Makayla and I enjoyed out Taco Tuesday dinner and then spent some family time building a gingerbread house. What a fun and easy project for a family. We never really made these as kids but it was a lot of fun and I think it will become a new Tradition here in the Bower house. As long as they keep making these east kits. LOL

The construction
All the pretty details
The finished Project!
We all had a great time. Now if we could just find time to put up our tree!!!

Animals, Campfires, Thanksgiving and Way to many pictures!!!

As we do every year we went away again for Thanksgiving. It's so great to just be able to spend time as a family with the hassle of cooking and cleaning. This year we went to River Ranch RV resort. What a great place. Last time I was there I was 3 months pregnant with Makayla so this time was much more fun and exciting. There is a lot to do there. We spent most of our days at the petting farm, riding ponies, picking up acorns, riding bikes and just enjoying the outdoors with no rules or time limits. Enjoy ALL the pictures. I know there is a lot but as you've noticed I don't have time for to many post anymore!

A halloween weekend full of fun and fright!

We had a great time this Halloween weekend. It started Thursday with a parade at Makayla's school. She has come home with so many cute Halloween themed art works that I just love hanging around the house and that she is so proud of. She was really excited to FINALLY wear her Snow White costume!

On Saturday we went to my Brother and Sister in laws for one of the most fabulous kids Halloween parties ever. She planned tons of fun games and had lots of spooky food.

Sunday was Halloween, for the last few years I have friends and family over here for Grilled cheese, Butternut squash soup and tomato soup with goat cheese, Cookies and pumpkin ice cream, and a few other goodies. We take the kids Trick or Treating early and then sit outside and pass out the candy the kids love giving just has much as getting which is always nice. We ad a wonderful weekend full of fun. Now let the holiday season officially begin.

There are a lot of pictures below to enjoy from our weekend!!

Such a fun and wonderful weekend. Makayla is fast asleep from all the excitement.
Fall is one of my favorite times of year. I love having the windows open on cool nights, sitting outside with friends over a yummy Pumpkin head, and just knowing the holidays are just around the corner and so is the start of a new year!!!!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!!!
