Pajama Day

Yesterday Aleah and I declared it pajama day, it has not only been fun for her, but for me too! Our morning started out by eating breakfast, then we got busy baking away! We made homemade s'more cookies, let me just say they were the best cookies I have had in a very long time! I made us both a cup of hot cocoa to sip on while eating our cookies. Reese woke up right when we finished, how is that for perfect timing!? Some other things we enjoyed yesterday were, watching a princess sing-a-long, learning about the first Thanksgiving, making puppet pilgrims, reading books, and calendar time. I am so glad that we decided to have pajama day, I am thinking we should do this once a month! :)

Stirring all the ingredients together.

Right before we popped them in the oven.

The finished product... Yum Yum!

Drinking her warm cocoa and eating her cookies... she loved it!

Christopher Place

A photo of the back of Christopher Place.

This weekend Kyle and I traveled to Newport, Tn for our last wedding of the year. We love going to Christopher Place, it is a wonderful location to have a intimate wedding or to go and relax, we even thought about having our wedding here, but decided to stay local. As I have mentioned before in previous posts, Kyle and I have our own room off of the main house so that we are able to have privacy away from the wedding party. This time we were able to put to use the fire place in our room and kept it burning all night. It was so nice listening to the fire crackling while falling asleep. As always we enjoy our time here at this beautiful resort and hope to book more weddings here this coming year! :)

Our yummy breakfast!

Getting ready to begin the ceremony, I was asked to video for the bride.

After the wedding we all went to a farm, this is the view of the creek from the cabin.

All of the guests were able to take horse and a carriage ride. While the guests were waiting they could go inside the cabin to snack on cheese and crackers and get their caricature drawn.

The bride and groom had a hummer limo pick up all the guest, we had to get a picture with it.

The fire we had going in our room on the last night.

Our Little Winner!

Maple, our fur child, won her very first competition thanks to her Dads good networking skills! :) What started out as something fun turned to competitive real quick, Kyle wanted her to win really really bad! Thankfully all his hard work paid off and Maple was rewarded with this super cute shirt from Patty House, owner of StarBurst Doggie Designs. You can look her up on Facebook, she has some really cute things! :)

A Sneak Peak...

Here is a little sneak peak into my everyday with two of the cutest little girls! I must say that I really enjoy my job, there is nothing like investing my time into these precious lives! With Thanksgiving right around the corner we have been talking and working on activities that remind us of how blessed we are. Last week we made a cute thankful turkey, this really made saying what we are thankful for fun!

Coloring the leaves Fall colors.

Gluing on our thankful leaves... can you tell Aleah had a blue ringpop?!

Reese and the turkey!

The finished product! She came up with all of the things she was thankful for by herself... so cute!

For as long as I can remember my family and MANY others enjoy trick-or-treating down Elkins Ave. My grandparents start preparing a month in advance so that everyone can enjoy thier evening. This year neither one of my grandparents were able to celebrate, BUT we still held Halloween at thier house.

Hanging out before the trick-or-treating starts.

Enjoying our evening!

The skeleton man came to hang out with us.

We had yet another wonderful Halloween! I love that we were able to keep the tradition going even if we were missing a few people. :)
