"F" is also for FINALLY!!! Finally I am updating this blog!
Fall started off crazy around here. The girls both started Mother's Day Out at our church and ballet! We were loving the beginning of fall until the whole family was hit with the dreaded Swine Flu...sorry piggies I mean the H1N1. =) So we locked ourselves up in the house and all recovered without any major issues! Aren't you glad we didn't share it with you? So we missed a lot of ballet and a week of school and 2 Sundays at church. All better now we headed off to the State Fair of Texas! We had a lot of fun. The girls loved riding the Dart Rail to the fair. It was great going down but was really crowed on the way back! At the fair we saw the bird show, car show, children's museum and enjoyed a corn dog! It was also Craig and the girls first time to ride the ferris wheel! It was a nice long day and we even made it out without buying anything!!
We also made our annual trip to the Pumpkin Patch. We have gone to the same one since Maisy was 9 months old! This year was fun with the girls. They enjoyed the bounce house, merry-go-round, face painting, kettle corn, and the train ride. We even got some "happy" pictures!
The girls are doing great! Maisy acts more like a teenager every day! She is busy with school and loves every minute of it! She was the first one in her class to fill in their sticker chart! Apparently, every time you complete a worksheet you get a sticker for your chart. So she got to pick something special from the treasure box at school. She is also still enjoying skating. Right now she is preparing for her 2nd competition. It will be Saturday, November 7th. Let me know if you would like to come and cheer her on!
And Maddie...what can I say about this little comedian! She is funny! Like I said she is also going to school but not enjoying it. Some decisions are needing to be made there...She did enjoy ballet a lot! She loves to dance around the house! I am hoping to get her started up in another class at the Rec Center. She has canged so much in the last couple of months. I can not believe she is almost 3. Maddie keeps us entertained with her goofiness and loves irritating Maisy! She really knows how to be a little sister!
We are looking forward to the holidays!!! Now that Halloween is over, Christmas is going to be here before you know it!!! Luckily, I am almost done with my Christmas shopping...how about you?
Enjoy the pictures!
