Fall festival at school

This past weekend Makayla and I went to the fall festival at her school. It was great. They had plenty of games for 2-4 age kids and they won a prize every time! Makayla had a great time. It warms my heart to see how happy and proud she is of her school and for me to meet her friends. ( I know that might not last forever lol) She got to enjoy a hot dog, play games, and get face painting with her friends but hands down her favorite part was the pony ride!

Yeah we are at the "Festable"
Waiting her turn
Fishing for prizes
She REFUSED to her face painted so she got her hand instead
Riding the pony the 3rd time.

School is going great for Makayla. She can almost spell her name, she recognizes most of her letters, she learns new songs all of the time. She can count to 20, she knows all of her colors and shapes and her social and sharing skills are getting better also. She gets excited on Tuesdays and Thursdays when it's school time!!! Having her go to school at 2 was a hard decision but I am so glad I did. She truly loves it and so I.

Are these funky or what?

All the pumpkins this year are just a little different wouldn't you say?

Adoption/ baby shower

Recently I had a adoption/ baby shower here at my house. I wanted to share with you a few of the cute things we did.

These were the favors! We did Chicago style Pop Corn and chocolate covered pretzels.
Thanks to Devine Doodles for making the tags!
Aren't the precious!
We filled little pumpkins with bright colored flowers.
Lots of fun treats.
Along with Chicken chile, apple Carmel dip, "Ryan's mom's Dip" (the best dip ever)
mini quiche, veggie tray, apple cider, and a few other goodies!!!
Lots and Lots of Cupcakes!!!
All the kids colored mini white pumpkins for the guest of honor to take home with her.
Everyone had a ton of fun. My friend Jen and I pulled off a great shower and the guests of honor really enjoyed them selves!!!

Take my picture Mommy

We went to lunch last weekend and Makayla couldn't wait to go outside. When we got outside she leaned against this rock and said "Mommy take my picture" and then decided to pose all the way to the car!

Playing in the boat
What a fun, crazy, loving, little girl!!!! I love her so much!

Zoo Boo

We have been so busy lately and have not had much family time, so last Friday night we decided to go to Zoo Boo with some friends. The weather was perfect and we had a great time. They turn the zoo into a not so scary halloween festival for kids. All the rides were free which Makayla took full advantage of. She rode the ponies 5 times!!! The girls got to run around and have fun and the parents got to laugh and enjoy some grown up time! I love fall and all the fun stuff there is to do.

I think this is time #4. She just couldn't get enough
We had a great family fun night.

My Princess

Makayla has decided to be Snow White for Halloween. Her Grandpa bought her the costume on our recent trip to Disney. Makayla is so excited to wear her dress, she wakes up every morning and asks" Is today Halloween?" I have to say No but soon. So she opts out for Cinderella instead. She is such a girly girl now. She wants to wear necklaces and bracelets all the time, she has to have a bow in her hair and her nails painted. And she LOVES to dress up!!!
