Happy Thanksgiving!  I can barely type this because I am so full.  We had a great Thanksgiving.  We had 11 here at our house and I really enjoyed hosting.  We had way too much food but that means I don't have to cook for a few days :)  The girls loved having everyone here.  Hadley said, "This is the best day.  My favorite part was having all the people at my house."  I did take a few pictures throughout the day.

 Time to eat!

 Time to work off all the extra calories.

 We ended the day with a little webcam time with Auntie Jessica and Sophia.

Nothing new

I am sorry to say that my camera is collecting dust.  I just haven't been taking pictures lately and really don't have anything new to share.  We are getting ready to host our first Thanksgiving at our house.  We are very excited.  Hadley has been in charge of decorations so there has been a lot of coloring and cutting going on at our house.  I will get my camera out on Thanksgiving.  To hold you over here are a few pictures from past Thanksgivings.

County Fair at school

The Friday before Halloween was the County Fair at Hadley's school.  They didn't have a Halloween party but a County Fair instead.  It was for the residents of the assisted living center and the students.  Parents and siblings could also attend.  It was a fun time.  The girls seemed to have a great time and loved turning their tickets in for prizes.  Hadley went for the jewelry and Jillian went for the candy.  Which do you think is more like me???

My Little Dollhouse

A couple of weeks ago was Fall Break here and the girls were out of school Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.  We made sure to do something fun on each day.  On Wednesday we had a special crafting MOPS meeting.  We painted pumpkins and made Fall tree paintings.  It was a great time and Hadley was excited to be able to see her old friends from MOPS.  On Thursday we had a playdate with one of Jillian's best friends from school, Brynlee.  The girls had fun and the mommies did too.  On Friday we used a Living Social deal I had purchased for My Little Dollhouse.  Niki and Olivia also joined us there.  The girls got to dress-up, have their nails done, make-up done, dance and put on a fashion show.  This was just right for the girly girls.

Dress like a princess night

Last Tuesday was Dress like a Prince or Princess night at Chick-Fil-A.  If you went dressed up you got a free kid's meal.  Of course we had plenty of princess attire to choose from.  The girls were so excited to get to wear their princess clothes to dinner.  We met up with Niki, Ryan, Olivia and Audrey there.  They had horse drawn carriage rides, pictures with Cinderella and a steal the dragon's candy game.  I think a fun time was had by all.
