Music and Treats!

This week our music class allowed the kiddos to wear costumes…but more importantly they let us take pictures.  We are only allowed pictures on the last day so this was big! Any ways the kids looked so dang cute! I loved seeing everyone in their costumes.  

Here are our 4 close friends all decked out! LK and E are cousins they dressed up as Pebbles and Bam Bam, T our neighbor came as a cheerleader, and Miss H wore her octopus proudly.  She did however, have to ditch the "hat' in order to play the drums properly!

Daddy had to come check it all out too! 

 Miss H busy on the drum going to town! She loves music so much!!

 This is my favorite one…typical picture with 4 kiddos under 2!!  But look at H's cute smile! HA HA HA

After music we came back home for a bit! Carrie and LK invited us to join them at the TCU halloween trick or treating.  We had to be well rested for the fun, lol.  What a blast it was too.  The kids got to trick or treat down the dorm halls.  The sweet little college girls all dressed up and decorated their whole hall.  Then they had games and crafts to enjoy!  Miss H had a blast with LK and E!! Can't wait to do it again next year. 
 A little pep talk before the big event! 

 Miss H trick or treating in the halls! 
 The kiddos picking out their pumpkin…we opted out on the painting part! 

 Miss H found her's!! An attempt to get them all together at the end! Love it!

Weekend visitors

This past weekend Chris' best friend, Z came to town.  They were here for a wedding.  Actually Z's whole family was in town.  Miss H loved having them here and learned how to say "uncle" while they were here.  We normally only see Z and his sweet fiancé Kelly in AZ on our Labor day trip.

What fun to have them here in our area…okay so they were in Dallas but close enough right?  We spent Thursday afternoon with them and then again on Saturday.  We had a blast…Thursday Z and Chris were suppose to golf but they had some flight issues so that didn't work out. However, it was nicer this way because Miss H and I got to see all of Z's family not just him and Kelly.  We had a nice lunch with them.

Then on Saturday we took off early and meet them for a brunch and a trip to the Dallas Aquarium.  We have not been to the aquarium so this was new to us all.  I have had many friends say it is wonderful.  We had a blast and it was pretty there.  We saw so many animals and plants.  It is kind of funny because I don't view it as an aquarium though…more a zoo with mostly reptiles, birds, and fish.  They do have a jaguar though…however we couldn't see it! BOO to that!!

AS you know with me many pictures are to follow!! 

the cute monkeys hanging in the tree

 Uncle Z loving on Miss H!! Can't wait for him to have his own kiddo to spoil :-) H loves him!!

 A cute toucan like bird and the sloth…he wouldn't move I was a little sad about that! 

Miss H and her cup! 

 She was to involved with that baby "chomp chomp" to look away! She loves alligators currently. 

 I love this little mini owl..I wish we could take him home! So.dang.cute!
 Yes that is a real live crab…he was HUGE as H would say! She wasn't really a fan
 All of us under the arch of sharks and such…

 I love how both Chris and H are looking up in awww of this guy. He didn't move the whole time we were there! We enjoyed watching his mouth and such as he laid there.
 Kelly and Z…cute as can be!

 Z photo bombing my picture nice work!!
 Our family pic..of course not one fish swam behind while H was smiling! Oh well

 Oh and sweet Z's family all dolled up for the wedding!! Loved seeing them!

Pumpkins oh pumpkins

How we love the pumpkins this time of year!!  Well Miss H is really loving them anyways.  She points them out everywhere we go.  I think she just likes to say 'umpin...also known as pumpkin.  Her verbal skills are crazy she is a chatter box that wont stop.  Hum wonder where that came from!!  Any way our sweet friends, Gracie and E invited us to the Dallas Arboretum.  Gosh I think it has been about 4 years since I went at this time of year.

The whole place is covered in pumpkins.  Actually it has 50,000 pumpkins, gourds, and squash covering the place!   I love the way they make patterns, designs, and art out of them all.  Miss H loved every second of it too!! I could go on and on but really let's just look at the pics! (I tried to scale back on the number I posted)

hunting for acorns under the pumpkins

 I forgot to mention that the day we went it was Kids day and they had fun stuff.  Arts and crafts as well as a petting zoo!! Guess who was super excited about animals....hum?

She wanted this one to COME home with us.
