Holly's Halloween Parade

Holly's entire school had a Halloween parade this morning. The weather was perfect. Little Red Holly-Hood was so excited to wear her costume to school and that her Grandma & Grandpa were coming to watch her parade. She told everyone that her Grandma made her costume (Thank you Grandma!). She was waving throughout entire parade like a little Miss America.

Heading back to school....

Brooke's School Halloween Party

Brooke had two Halloween parties at school this week. She dressed as a Jaguar Cheerleader so we wouldn't wreck her "real" costume before Halloween :)

Holly without training wheels!!!!

Holly has learned to ride without her training wheels. She's still a little shaky on turning but has been cruising straight up and down our street for three days now! Of course Brooke wants hers taken off now too...

The Pumpkin Patch

We went to the pumpkin patch on Saturday....we tried to wait this year til the last minute so our pumpkin wouldn't get rotten & moldy in the sun :)

Only in Florida do they sell coconuts at the pumpkin patch...

This cute, chubby lil girl is 6 years old today! It seems like just yesterday that she was this little.... 1st thing this morning, we went to the bakery to pick up our cookies in the shape of the number "6" to take to share with her class. They were so cute.

Ms. Towne had a birthday "crown" waiting for her in the classroom.

Holly and Ms. Towne

After school hanging out with Brooke, still wearing the crown :)

Very excited to go eat Japanese food (or to the "Chef's house" as Holly calls it).
Waiting for the chef to throw some food in her mouth.

Having the waitresses sing Happy Birthday to her.

Then we went home to go eat cupcakes with her buddies Reid & Laney & do some swimming.

Happy Birthday sweet big girl Holly :)
