First haircut!

Abby finally got her first real haircut. One that a real professional did and not just mommy chopping away :) She was nervous about sitting in the big chair all by herself so mommy sat and held her on her lap. She was so proud afterwards and was telling everyone about her new do!

Hot Air...

Balloon rides!! :)

Abigail and I were taking a walk one night when we saw the Re-Max balloon in a field across from our street. We ran back to the house, gathered up Daddy and Ada and ran back for a ride!! Abby absolutely loved it!

 It only went about 50 feet up but the way she talked about it the rest of the evening, you would think we flew over the whole city!

Whirlwind trip to Ohio!

Last weekend, we packed our bags, loaded the truck and headed north for a quick trip to Ohio to visit Joe's grandma and some extended family. It was quite the trip and we actually didn't make it there till the following night - just in time for dinner! The next day (Saturday), we were able to watch Abigail play with her cousins and enjoy some time with Grandma Murfin. Joe spent the afternoon at the Ohio State/Penn game while the girls hit up the Columbus area malls! We left the following day and ended up turning the return trip into a 2 day travel extravaganza! Definitely a family adventure!

Ada's first time in a swing! She loved it!

Two cute little pigtailed girls!

Just an ordinary night :)

On one of our pizza nights that we have each week with the Facenda family, the kids got a little crazy and wanted to dress up! Kyler was more than willing to be a princess and had the best taste in picking out outfits and accessories!!

Checking over the accessories!

I love this picture - the look on Justin's face when he saw his son, and then Joe just sitting there pointing and laughing...priceless!

Even Kamden got in on the dress up fun!

The whole evening was so funny!
 And what do you do after your beautiful and accessorized? You jump on the bed of course!!

Two cute little Princes' dressed in disguise :)

And after you've 'pretended' as much as you can, help yourself to some cookies!!

Here are a couple randoms of my sweet girls! I love all the every day adventures we have together!!
Messy face after a random cupcake decorating morning!

While we decorated and ate our cupcakes, Ada had quiet time and read some books!

This is so blurry but I still wanted to post it so I could remember...I was cleaning up a bit around the house and happened to walk by and catch Abby reading Ada a story. So sweet!!

Fall Fun

This year Abigail was just old enough to understand that if she said "Trick or Treat" people would put candy into her bucket :) She absolutely loved it! She loved seeing everyone's costumes and decorations! Holidays and festivals are so much fun through a child's eyes! This year for Halloween, the three girls were bumblebees and daddy was a Florida toll booth operator. We had so many festivities and events to attend - a party with Abigail's class, trunk or treat at her school and at our church and then we went trick or treating in the streets of downtown Hartsville. It seemed like we had something going on each day of the week!

She was a little apprehensive at first and didn't quite understand the whole concept.
 Checking the loot to make sure she liked it :)
 "OOooh a pop!"

Abigail's best friend at school is Kelsie. We tried to get the two of them and then Kelsie's sister Jamie to take a picture together...this is the best one I got :)

Her little class party was so cute! All the little superheros and princesses! Here's a picture of the class together saying their prayer before they eat.
 Such a good little prayer!
 And eater!!

When we went trick or treating downtown, I managed to get an outfit on Ada. She was such a sweet little bee - only 'stung' a couple times!

The bee keeper :)

We met up with Abigail's little friend McKinlee and had a great time walking to all the shops and collecting sweets!

Stopping to take inventory of her loot!

I had to post a picture of Joe and his little get-up. He was a Florida toll booth operator - complete with shirt!

You can't tell from this picture, but even mommy dressed up as a bee! I had wings, skirt and the tiara on my head made me the "Queen Bee" :)

Abigail had to ride the ponies and she loved it! The girl loves horses and riding and touching, etc...she could be around them all day and not get bored!
