Pumpkin Gew

We carved pumpkins with the fam this weekend. NiNi and JB had a pumpkin gew fight with Addison and Kadence. It was hilarious until Addison got yucky in her hair and had a come apart. I mean wallow in it if you will but don't get it in the HAIR? There pumpkins turned out so cute, Kadence wanted stars all over hers and Addison wanted a dragon? We are going through a boy stage, which is totally fine and Daddy is enjoying it! Anyway here are a few shots from this event.

Swedish Fest

Saturday we spent the day with our friends in Thorsby Al. at their “Swedish Fest”. It was so much fun, the girls had a blast. There were tons of booths and I got some great crafty ideas there was a antiques car show for daddy and they had a Noah’s Ark bouncy for the kids etc… Just tons of stuff to keep us busy. The parade began at 9:00 and it was sooo cold. I had the girls all bundled up in their wagon to watch as the floats went by. We came home with a huge sack full of candy! We left around lunch and headed to Clanton to get some Macky D’s as the girls say. Then we went over to a local flying field where they have an RC Plane club. It was so neat , you wouldn’t believe how fast those things fly! Bama has a gas powered RC truck and it goes pretty fast but those things were amazing. Hopefully it will be out of the shop soon! We got home just in time for the Bama game RTR and they day was complete.

Black day

Today is black day for Addison and Kadence's classes. Each week they learn about a different color. They learn to spell the word and they learn about all things that are black such as spiders, bats, etc... So on the Thursday of each week they are supposed to wear something the color of what they are going over. So today is "Black day". They wore Halloween shirts and these awesome bows below. ( Shameless plug!) Bows by Frilly Nilly check it out for yourself!

First Halloween / First Fall

Addison was so cute on her first Halloween. Because her birthday was in January she was almost one for her first trick or treat. We had so much fun. I thought she wouldn't be to keen on the "petal head" as Bama called her but she was a good sport!

The next portrait is of Kadence's first fall, me being a bad mommy got all the way to the photo shoot and realized I had left their costumes at home? So the only ones I have of that Halloween are with my camera and they aren't very good. Isn't she just so tiny to be almost one? It drives her crazy now cause I still try to hold her and rock her like a baby.
They are and have been a definite handful but I wouldn't have it any other way! I found a blog through a blog of a blog of a blog ( haha ) but it is about a woman with Irish Twins and it is so neat. For those of you who don't know, Addison and Kadence are Irish twins as well. To make them even more rare, they were born in the same year. Addison on 01/12/2006 and then Kadence on 12/13/2006. I know it is strange to think about but it's kinda cool, at least to me and Bama!

School picture day

Since Bama has been being Mr. Mom I am used to getting up, getting myself ready and getting on the road. Last night Bama said to me, " Ya know picture day is tomorrow?" I totally forgot! "Can you PLEASE get the girls ready and their hair done?" Sure I will "Well I know I won't do it just right and I don't want to be blamed for bad pictures!" Am I really that picky? " Definitely!" So I ran late this morning but managed to get a couple pre-pic pics. They looked cuter than the pics! It made me realize what I am missing with Bama doing all the fun things for them. Maybe things will be back to normal after the beginning of the coming year.

Company Picnic

Last Saturday we went with my family to my dad's (PawPaw) company picnic. It was great until the rain began. They had tons of games for the kids and a clown making balloon animals. Unfortunately we didn't get to actual do any of them because of the weather. The food was good and Kadence won $50.00 in a drawing so I guess it was still worth it!
