Clayton's Preschool Halloween Party

Clayton's Preschool always has a Halloween parade and party.  I volunteered to be the mom in charge of the party this year.  Maddie and I dropped off Clayton in his Spider man outfit and then went to the gym to watch the parade. (He was a little upset they don't allow them to wear masks, Justin pointed out the ghost behind Clayton and I said just because others break the rules does mean we should :)  After the parade we did fun ghost crafts, had snacks, played pin the nose on the pumpkin and more.  The kids really had a good time and I have to admit it was nice to check that off the list.  Swim lessons tonight, so the kids are napping.  Clayton is really hoping they use the diving board!

Normal Monday

Since living at our new house the kids love to watch the birds.  We are "in the country" so we have more wildlife and have birdfeeders up too.  Justin had his deer blind out so it could air out so the kids decided it was the perfect place to watch our woodpecker.  Mimi was proud I am sure.  :)  Even though it is cooler out we are so enjoying this weather.  The kids could stay outside for hours and hours playing.  Love to see how they do things together.

Pumpkin Carving

We did our pumpkin carving tonight and the kids picked a kitty on a pumpkin and a witch.  We even have some pumpkin seeds roasting in the oven.  We have a full week this week with a school Halloween Party, swimming lessons starting, and of course trick-or-treating.  More pics to come of our Halloween!

Gymnastics or "Nastics"

We knew we wanted to get Maddie into a class and something she would really love.  She is such an active little daredevil that I thought gymnastics would be perfect.  So she started about a month ago.  She loves, loves, loves it.  She thinks it is the equivalent to Clayton going to school.  In fact I asked her if she would be going to pre-school next year where big brother goes and she said "No, I go to Nastics".  :)  This week the kids got to wear their Halloween costume which she is a fairy princess she says.  Her favorite thing to do there is the rings and the bars.  She would hang there forever!!!!  I can't get over how big and grown up she has gotten over the last couple of months!
