Happy Halloween! & Our Fun Fall Weekend

Happy Halloween! Hope you are having a super Monday - I am excited to see what Katie looks like all dressed up tonight.  She is going to be Heidi - a little German girl.  Should be pretty adorable.  I do have a couple of backup options in the event her outfit doesn't fit right - I probably should have done a trial run a little earlier.  Oh well!  Here is a little festive pic of some of my fun hand towels!
Katie had a Fall Party at school on Thursday and looked so Halloween-y!  Isn't she just the cutest??
 Well, she also has her moments (don't we all?), she was saying "No No Mommy!" ... that expression just kills me!  I was trying to get her to smile and hold her bag where I could see the cute candy corn with her name on it.  Crazy girl.
 Saturday we got up and went to brunch at Cracker Barrel - yum! We hadn't done that in a long time - it was definitely fun and delicious!  After Katie's nap, we headed out for some fun.  This is before we left the house... 
 First, we headed to Pumpkinfest.  It was so fun to walk around and enjoy the pretty day.  Katie loved seeing all the doggies dressed up in their costumes!
 Yay! A cute picture of me and my girl - love this :)
 And I got a good picture of Katie too - love that smile.  And those baby blues.
 And when we were headed to our car, we found Stella!  She and Katie gave eachother a hug...adorable!  I laughed when I first saw this picture because Katie looks like a giant in comparison to Stella!
 After that, we headed to a friend's family's land for a bonfire!  We brought warm clothes, folding chairs, a quilt...we were ready!  Katie thoroughly enjoyed her chair - so funny!
 And the big event - the big fire!
 And they had a TV with some REALLY long extension cords so that folks could watch the UT game.  Pretty nice setup!  They also had hot dogs, hamburgers, chili, brats, and the stuff for smores...perfect fall night!
 And a family shot in front of the fire - I just love this is so cute!  We are all looking at the camera, smiling, and have our eyes open! It's definitely a keeper :)
Hope you have a fun and safe night!!
