Happy Birthday Allison!

Allison had her 6th birthday party at the ice skating rink. It was lots of fun. Holly picked it up pretty good...she kinda walked around the rink. Brooke was like a little greased piglet slipping all over the place. Thank you Aunt Kim, Aunt Amy & Bumpa for helping me out with her! Happy Birthday Allison!!!!

Holly's school Thanksgiving lunch

Holly had a Thanksgiving lunch at school. She got up and read to the class what she was thankful for out of a book she made. She was thankful for her "family" :)

Brooke's Thanksgiving show at school

Brooke had a little Thanksgiving lunch at school and they sang three songs dressed up as Indians. They were so cute. (Brooke is 2nd to last on the right in the little video)

The Jacksonville Fair

We took the girls to the fair for the first time Saturday (Can we say RIP OFF?) and I think we were out $50 in the first 20 minutes. They absolutely loved it. Me - on the other hand - I would actually be happy if I never went to a fair again.
This was Bop's favorite part....the petting zoo

These pigs were like little puppies...Brooke kept saying "Quit eating my arm piggy!"

This ride did me in....my mouth is watering just looking at the picture. We spun around and around and it was miserable. We went home not too long after this!
Holly brought this picture home from school and it cracked me up. She said that is her and I in the windows. If you look closely...you can see where she wrote BOP on the right side of the house and put a big red "X" thru it. I asked her what the little red house on the left side was and she said that is Brooke's house. If only we could send Brooke to her own little house occasionally..... :)

Happy Birthday Grandpa!

Grandpa Maher turned 29 last week and the girls were more than happy to take a trip to Grandma's house & eat cake! Happy Birthday Dad!

The girls had a great time trick-or-treating this year and Mommy is glad it's all done....now where to stash all that candy?

Holly loves to pass out candy! She gives every kid like 20 pieces of candy.
While Holly was passing out candy, Brooke and I made some more trick-or-treating rounds til it started pouring & we had to giddy-up home fast! We got a little soaked!
