Getting ready for Christmas...

I didn't have my camera out at Thanksgiving and I am so bummed!! I usually am the best at taking pictures but since Mason has discovered how to use my camera every time I sat it down he would pick it up, and eventually there were pieces falling off!! Imagine that!! Santa, this is at the top of my Christmas wish list! I am using my 5 year old camera now!
Anyways, we had a wonderful small Thanksgiving. I missed the hustle and bustle of the big ones we spend with my moms family but this year it was too tough for us to host or make the road trip. Next year!
Today we got out all the Christmas and Marlee fell in love with some old random bead necklaces we found. From the moment I pulled them out till her bath tonight she toted them around taking them off and putting them all back on again. She'd give them out and then take them back! It was so funny to watch her. She had everyone on her neck though most of the day! Here are a few pics!
She lately has decided there is a perfect seat for her in the fridge so immediately when I open the door she runs over and takes seat!
Mason got all bundled up to help daddy with the outdoor lights!
And here is Sassy Marlee with her beads!
Happy getting ready for Christmas!

See you soon!

A spooky pumpkin patch visit and

A Happy Halloween!!
Here we are with our buddies we saw on Halloween:

Mason, Asa, Marlee, Aiden and Arden
Norah, Ryan, Stella, Marlee and Mason (all the bugs!!)

We had a very busy week between mommy and daddy getting home from a fantastic vacation to St. Thomas and a wonderful Halloween night!
I took the kiddos to Wabash's pumpkin patch the Thursday before Halloween and we lucked into getting there with several school groups which meant everything was up and running! Mason and Marlee got to jump in the big pumpkin, we took a nice tractor ride (where we saw a spoooooooky skeleton), went through a straw maze and picked out more pumpkins!
Then that evening we went Trick or Treating to Mimi and Poppy's and Grandma and Grandpa's house. It was lots of fun and Marlee really enjoyed her first taste of chocolate! She was silly happy that night, obviously showing us one day she will be the life of the party! Mason loved his treats too, he is into the candy a little more than chocolate these days.
Saturday we went to Nona and Papaws and did a little Trick or Treating and then watched the kids come to the doors.
In case you don't get it....Mason was "Bumblebee" the transformer, and Marlee was a bumblebee!!
