Family Day at SDC

Sunday was such a beautiful day so we decided that after church and after naps we would head to Silver Dollar City to see all the beautiful Christmas lights.  We normally aren't Christmas before Thanksgiving type people, but the weather was a HUGE deciding factor in us breaking our rule a bit. 
Best I could get of them both.  There was a lot going on.

After the measuring station, Asher showing me he's tall enough to ride the big boy rides.

She's only a 1/4 of an inch away from being able to ride Thunderation.

Asher's FIRST boy big ride.  The Elephants.



The big swings!

Ok, bad parent alert, this is the first time, either of my kids have done the whole sitting on Santa's lap thing. 

Love them.

She loved it!

He did too!

There's nothing else like watching the big tree light up.  It's really magical.  I love Christmas time!

Girls Day

Amelia and I had a Girl's Day a couple of Saturday's ago.  We had a lot of fun.  I'm loving that she's old enough to go do fun stuff with me.  We had a great day!

Love her!

First up we went to the Springfield Little Theater's production of The Little Mermaid Jr.  It was SO much fun, Amelia and I both enjoyed it.  She did really well just sitting and watching.

After the show we called home to check on Nathan and Asher and Amelia and Asher spoke on the phone with each other, it was so funny to hear them talking, it was like they hadn't seen each other in a year, when really it was 2 hours.  :)  We headed to a local boutique where I did a bit of shopping and Amelia entertained everyone else in the store.

After that quick stop we headed to the mall for lunch (Amelia's choice) and some shopping. Amelia got a new pair of boots, some footed jammies and a scarf, she was in heaven.


Sporting her new boots!
She was asleep almost immediately when we got back in the truck to head home.  :)  It was a fabulous day together, I can't wait for many more!  

Where did my baby go???

Happy Halloween 2013

I basically got zero good pictures.  1) I was using my phone. 2) The kids were WAY too excited to stop and pose for me. 3) I had to work, so Mema got them ready, so I didn't have a chance to even get pictures before we went to trick-or-treat.  Oh well, I got some pictures on my phone and you get the idea.  The kids looked cute cute cute and had a good time.  :)  Happy Halloween!

My T-Rex

My Cinderella
Best picture I could manage of them together.
I'm not sure when she started looking so grown up.
He played the part, VERY well.
