I had another great girls lunch today at my house with Jennifer, Suzette, Lane and Ashley. It is so great to get to kick back and eat and visit with these girls. Kennedy just loves the babies. She was so tired today and wanted to take a nap but she said she had to wait until she got to see Kyah and Avery. She decided that they needed to be decorated with stickers. They were such good little sports about it. Kyah ended up with a ton of them.
Our first stop was trick or treating at Nana and Poppy's house. And lets say they overdid themselves a bit. They filled their baskets with big boxes of candy(like the kind you get at the theater)
Kennedy ended up getting to trick or treat with her BFF Bentley. They were so cute together all night holding hands as they went around door to door.
Here is Bentley's little brother Cooper. You might remember me posting about my friend April's little boy who spent some time in the Childrens Hospital. Well this is him!
Kennedy did pretty good this year out and about on Halloween compared to last year. She is terrified of masks and scary things. One of the houses in my neighborhood go all out and make a haunted house in their garage for people to walk through and they have teenage kids that act things out. Well Kennedy wasn't going to have any of that as you can tell in this picture. It was a fun night. We ended up with a small group of people at the house after trick or treating and we got to spend the rest of the night hanging out and eating pizza.

And this is my wonderful and handsome father in law who came to the event with us
The Ball was to support our states Children Shelter. The night starts off by bidding in a silent auction for stuff that has been donated by companies to help raise money for the shelter. Then there is a sit down dinner and a live auction. The rest of the night they have a band play for everyones enjoyment and for dancing.
We got to sit with the other 2 finalists and their dates. We had a great time! Funny story...we were eating and talking when someone says that it smells like a campfire. Well come to find out that one of our centerpiece candles was catching the floral arrangement on fire. Then not to long after that someone went to get some bread and a napkin lands on the candle and bursts into flames. We were frozen in shock when one of the girls thinks to throw a glass of water on it. We sure caught everyones attention!!
Here is a picture of Daniel and his friend Wade singing Can't You See by Marshall Tucker Band. They did SO good!! I was so proud of them. The other two finalist were amazing too!
Every table was given an electronic remote to vote with. The thing is that the table would have to come to an agreement and get one vote per table. Well Daniel and another guy tied for first place! Then they did a second vote and Daniel and Wade ended up in second place. It was very exciting!
Here is Daniel and his dad enjoying the night

I do not have much to say. I have been busy getting to spend time with this sweet little thing. My niece! And I am hoping and praying that her sweet little sister is going to bless me with her presence very soon. She has been cooking in my sisters oven for 9 months now (or should I say 10, I have never really understood the whole 9 months but 40 weeks thing. I think whoever came up with that terminology is confused). Anyway, I am just dying to get my hands on that itty bitty newborn baby.

I love this picture I took of little Peyton (Brody's sis) I think she looks like a Precious Moments doll!
Somehow Taylor didn't end up in this picture with us. She wasn't in many pictures because she was too busy with her friends.
Stick the princess on the castle
My sweet baby girls!
I was so thankful that the sun finally came out just in time for the party. We got Kennedy a trampoline for her birthday and it was a big hit with the kiddos. This is our 3rd one. Lost the other 2 in tornados so hopefully we can keep this one for a little while:)
We have great friends!

My BABY turned 3 this week! ~tear, tear~ She wants to be so grown up and wants to be a big girl just like her big sister but she also loves to play "baby" and have me rock her while she is pretend crying and cooing. I just love it!
For her actual birthday we had Nana and Poppy over for dinner and had her open a few presents. They got her a princess bag full of princess shoes and a crown which she is wearing in the picture above.
Papa and Grandma got Kennedy a Dora backpack that comes with all the neccessary Dora adventure things. She has been all about Dora lately. Thanks Papa and Grandma!!
We went out last weekend to celebrate our friend Stacey's birthday. She is so much fun! So girly, happy, and energetic. It was fun getting out with some friends without the kiddos.
My sweet husband came home the other day with a bag from the Buckle for me!! I LOVE that store!! He got me this outfit. The tank, shirt, jacket, belt and necklace. He also got me another green and brown shirt that I can mix and match with all the other stuff. He did good, huh!?!! Taylor took this picture. She actually took several pictures. She wants to be a fashion designer and said that she had to capture my cool fashion by doing a photo shoot. She took several pictures...standing on a chair, crouching on the ground, different angles...and telling me how to pose. She is just too cute!
