We spent our lovely, Fall day at Carowinds!
We had such a great time and the weather was perfect.
Hadley loves it here and there are a few rides she likes. Even little
Hollins enjoyed looking around and seeing new sights.
I was only able to get a few pictures before my camera died. Boo...

Hadley loves to drive the cars!

On the train!
(Ignore the nose picking-she's had a cold!)

And of course, flying the plane!

Pumpkin Treats

On Fridays, I usually try to do something fun with Hadley. I know it's the early childhood teacher in me but I like to do seasonal crafts and cooking with her and she loves it!
This past Friday, I had every intention to take her to get a small pumpkin at a local church just to paint but it rained
So, I drew a pumpkin and she painted that and we made pumpkin rice krispy treats.
She didn't enjoy making these as much-she didn't not like getting the stickiness on her hands but she loved eating them. When we make anything, she likes to lick the spoon-even with things that aren't good to eat raw-like pizza dough! But she loved this!
The pictures are so blurry! One reason-I am no photographer and 2- she doesn't stop moving!

Friday Phone Dump

Happy Friday!
I was able to thread my new serger all by myself! I thought this would take all day!It didn't-yay for a success!

Hanging out in the crib!

Almost finished with Hollins' Thanksgiving t-shirt and taking orders!

Ready for church!

Sweet sisters!

Weekend Recap

We had such a busy weekend!
It started off hectic with a trip to Wal-Mart Friday night, which turned out to be stressful. Two year olds apparently have their own agenda!
But how can you stay irritated when they are this cute!

Saturday, I had to attend a funeral. The PE teacher passed away following an off-roading accident, leaving his wife and three young children. It is a heartbreaking situation and all I could think was how easy that could be me. The funeral was a time of worship for me because I know that God makes all things good. I left the funeral so aware of the blessing of Eric but, of course, the devil showed up at our house!
Eric went to the Carolina game and we FINALLY had a good game. The score was like 54-3! Crazy! As soon as I left the funeral, I met the girls and Mimi at a birthday party, we ran to the fabric store and finally, headed home! Sunday we headed to church and we played the rest of the afternoon. It has been a beautiful, cool weekend here and I hate it when they come to an end so fast!
