sugar high


Monday, October 25

each year we go to the fall festival at the preschool where i work. it is huge and the kids have so much fun and collect more candy than they can eat and we finish it off at perkins eating brinner with friends.

this year, spencer wanted some candy, too. since candy is awarded as prizes, she had to play a few games. 
 it is a good thing she is cute because she didn't exactly understand all the rules.

 to balance out her lack of ability due to age, she helped with clean up, too.

 then, it was off to choose her prize.

it was a difficult decision.

 a decision that required much thought . . .

 and a little sacrifice . . . even if it was partially eaten.

wrangling three in the crowd made for little photos, but i did make josh take the picture below because many of you know my children, especially carter, have a fear of animals. but, she asked to do this . . .
and, i let her even though there was a girl holding a chicken standing feet away from her and screaming, "cool kids want to hold a chicken!"

no. i did not make this up.

halloween always brings out the crazies.

for the first time


Friday, October 22

october has been full of firsts, some may be common, but i am sure some are not so common to all.

the first one happened twice . . . carter lost her first tooth and two weeks later, she lost her second.
this is her tooth fairy pillow i made. it is pictured with the dollar and response letter she received. carter has asked both times to keep her tooth and the second time she asked what was done with the teeth she did collect.

one day, we went to the zoo with friends. it was not a normal day at the zoo  . . .

because those sweet friends took my children to see the bird exhibit . . .
and it was spencer's first time. 
and, because this day was the first time this little boy wore jeans!

carter had animal day . . .
and chose to be a poodle, specifically poodlena.

the next day, she went to a birthday party dressed as her favorite rock star . . . 
taylor swift.

her first time to wear cowboy boots and curl her hair with sponge rollers.

then, it was farm day at preschool:

this is the first time miller enthusiastically dressed up for any day other than pajama day.

. . . and it was spencer's first time to dress up. she was not quite as enthusiastic as she had only been awake for 15 minutes.

and, finally, carter had her first field trip and her first . . .
ride on a school bus. in case you were curious, the field trip was also to the zoo.

while just a few of the highlights of october, these firsts were definitely something worth documenting . . . even if i am backdating it in december ;)
