Happy Halloween!!!


Tonight we went trick or treating with some sweet friends!! We don't get any trick or treaters where we live so we decided to go to their neighborhood instead and we are so glad we did! 
We all had a ball!!!

Our little bumble bee and bee keeper!!

I was Queen bee!!

Our little bee family (although Daddy doesn't care to dress up)!

Busy bee!!!

Ella Grace was so proud of her first piece of candy!!

She certainly got the hang of the whole trick or treating thing quickly!!!

And Grayson seemed to always be one of the first at the door! :)

Ella Grace and I with my best friend, Kristy!

Such a great Halloween with friends!!!

School Halloween Party!!

Today was Grayson's Halloween celebration at school!!! Ella Grace and I were so glad to be there to celebrate with him! :)

An added bonus was that he was chosen to put out the candles in chapel. He was so excited!!

His sweet class!!!

Spooky lunch!!! 
My friend, Kristy, and I made the mummy juice boxes and halloween quesadillas!

These best buddies love to get their picture taken together and they were all so cute!!

Such a fun day and I'm so thankful I am able to be there for these precious moments!!

Perfect Day for the Park!!

On Sunday the weather was beautiful and we wanted to get out of the house and do something fun!! We didn't go to church b/c we've all been a little under the weather, but we were antsy so we decided to take the kids to a fun park in Gastonia! I'm pretty sure they loved it!

Such a fun place and one we will be sure to visit often!!

What a beautiful day to visit the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens! The weather was gorgeous today so we decided to go to their annual Bootanical event!! Thanks to a Groupon, we just became members of the Botanical Gardens and we were excited to check it out for the first time!!!

Grayson loves fountains and was thrilled to see pumpkins floating in this particular one and then proceeded to start chucking them into the fountain! Yikes! We quickly moved on!!

My little bumble bee and me!!

Sweet brother and sister!!

More fountains!!

Our little bee wasn't quite so busy towards the end of the event. She was plum tuckered!!

Such a fun time with family!! We are definitely looking forward to many more visits to these beautiful gardens. Especially around Christmas!!!

So thankful my brother, Eric, found such a wonderful girl who loves the Lord and loves my brother!!!
