Fun In Louisiana

In October we went to West Monroe, LA to visit Andrea, Karl, Kaden, and Leland. Ava and Max had a great time playing and Micah got put to work, as always!


For Halloween this year Ava and Max dressed up as Jesse and Woody from Toy Story. Ava got to wear her costume to a party at school and to her ballet class. Max just wore his on Halloween. We sold our house in Corsicana and closed Halloween morning and Micah had to get stuff ready for school the next day, so we just did a quick trick-or-treat at our house and at Papa Jack and Grammy's. Ava and Max knocked on our door about 10 times and got really good at trick-or-treating. They had fun and looked really cute!

Painting Pumpkins

I have not been doing a good job of keeping up with the blog since we've moved, so instead of going back and blogging everything we've done over the summer, I'm just going to pick up at Halloween. This year we didn't carve pumpkins, but we did paint them. We went to the Dallas Arboretum and Ava and Max both picked out pumpkins from the pumpkin patch. They had a great time painting them and they've been sitting on our mantle. Yesterday, I finally decided the pumpkins had to go, so we went down to the pond and threw them in. That was the only way I could get Ava to part with hers!
