It's the holiday season...

We've been busy this month, enjoying the season:
Decorating at our church ~

 He's trying to jump as high as the tree top...

 Making cookies ~

 Decorating the tree ~
 Savannah writing a note to her ballet teacher ~ so sweet ~
 Making Christmas goodies~
 Attending Savannah's ballet class Christmas party ~
 Savannah and a friend (Alex), posing ~

Little ballerinas!

We've enjoyed this season - attending the Christmas parade, watching movies, eating too many cookies, stringing lights around, making candy and many other things... Most of all, we've enjoyed just spending time together. And of course, we are very excited about Christmas day, which seems to be starting this weekend with the Family Christmas Parties.

I am overwhelmed with blessings, and I hope all of you are happy and blessed this holiday season!

Merry Christmas!

We have a wolf in the house tonight!

The girls were painting their nails and Isaac said "Can you give me WOLF CLAWS?" and it snowballed from there...

So if you hear a "How- WOOOOOO" tonight while you're trying to sleep... you were warned!

A few autumn decorations around the house ~
 At Country Pumpkins on different outings:

I think they're right!
Cutie Pie.

On a festival day:

Green apple snow-cone tongues!
 Sweet friends ~
Tug of war!
 Boys vs girls in tug of war... the boys were outnumbered but they didn't let that stop them!

Making caramel apples (the easy way) on halloween.
 Taking a walk before the storm came in today...

There are many other things that have been going on around here this month- birthday celebrations, school, crafty things, projects, baking, poison ivy outbreaks...  More pictures to come, since I know y'all love pictures as much as I do!

I hope all of you are enjoying this beautiful season ~

Happy Halloween!
