Lexi couldn't wait for Trick-or-Treating to begin tonight.  She got her bath and dressed in her Gypsy costume.  At first she said she only wanted to give out candy because we had trick-or-treated last night at school but after just a few trick-or-treaters, she decided she wanted to go out after all.  We went to a few houses and came back.

After it was all over, Lexi was so cute when she Skyped Grandma and YeYe.  He had a Halloween bucket and she got our candy and pretended to give him candy.  I'll tell you, she certainly has an imagination!

Wild Adverntures for a Wild Child!

This weekend we took Lexi to"Wild Adventures" in Valdosta.  It's so much fun to go to places during the Fall without having to worry about it being incredibly hot.  They had a special Halloween Theme going on.  We can't wait to go back during the year.

Ready for the first ride! 

 There were lots of little kid friendly rides!

The animals were beautiful!  

 We've never been to a petting zoo where you not only petted the animals but groomed them too!

  A Corn Maze perfect for a little one!

 Yes!  This was for real! 

Daddy and Daughter's FIRST ride on a Ferris Wheel!

 What child doesn't love a Carousel? 

Back at the hotel, our little beauty didn't need any help falling asleep!

Sara was such a good sissy today and took all THREE of the kids downtown to the Beggar's and Scarecrow Walk and then to the Fall Festival at the First Baptist Church. I usually go with them but I just wasn't feeling good today.  From the pictures they took, it's obvious they had a great time! 

What a perfect Spider-man!

Two Super heroes and a beauty!

Brennen does NOT like photo opps!  

 From the looks of this photo, Brennen maybe should have been Superman!

This is the hard part... getting them OFF the bouncy things!

I'm with Lexi on this one... sit it out!

Guess Where Lexi Went For a Field Trip??

Lexi's class went to the Ft. Stewart Firehouse today.  She was so funny last night when we were picking out her clothes.  She made SURE she told me that her teacher said they should wear jeans and tennis shoes.  If only she would remember and do EVERYTHING that we tell her!  LOL!

After we got home, we went outside to enjoy the fall weather.  She picked out her own outfit.  I think it's pretty styling!

While we were out side I took some photos of our CRAZY COCONUT.  This is all she wants to do these days!  She has wrecked the backyard!  She's constantly getting pine cones, sticks, leaves and bringing them onto the porch or worse inside!

 Who needs dog food when you can eat pine cones!!!  And later after we went inside, Lexi's fire hat became Coconut's latest victim!  Yup!  She ate it!

Spooktacular Fun!

We are just enjoying the Fall so much!  This weekend, we met Grandma and YeYe in Jacksonville and went to" Spooktacular" at the Jacksonville Zoo.  How much more fun can you get than getting to go Trick-or-Treating at the zoo AND getting to see Grandma, YeYe AND Gran Gran and PopPa!!  Since it was dark, we didn't get many good photos.

There were hundreds of Jack-o-Lanterns!

The Carousel was one of Lexi's favorite things!

Dancing at the Monster Mash!

I'd say the bouncy houses were her favorite by far!  She could of stayed there all night!

That's our Silly Gypsy Girl!  (or "gull if you hear her say it!)

It was "Spooktacular" Fun!

Announcing "That's Lj Style"

Lexi continues to amaze us every day.  As she continues to learn and grow I thought it would be fun to start letting her document some of her growth.  As an educator I am keenly aware of how important reading and writing are for students.  So I've created her her very own blog.  Our favorite Blog Make-Over Fairy will be jazzing it up soon but for now here it is...

Fall Fun!

I just LOVE this time of year!  The weather is nice and cool and the air feels crisp, plus there are so many fun things to do outdoors.  Today we went to Ottawa Farms Corn Maze and just had a great day!
They had John Deere tricycles!
Lexi's legs were so short, her feet kept slipping off!
They had pig races!  Have you ever seen such "clean" pigs?
The Corn Crib was awesome!  It was huge!  Lexi had a pocket full of corn when we left!
Lexi was not too thrilled when the hay ride took us to the Corn Maze.  She really didn't want to go.
But once there, she began running and I thought we'd lose her for sure!

Then we got worried that we'd all be lost!


Lexi loved the Cow Train!

So cute... I could just eat her up!
Duck Races with Dad!
"Driving" a big wooden truck...
The giant slide may have been her favorite thing of the entire place.
After we left we decided to go down to River Street for some ice cream because it was just so nice out, we didn't want to go home! 

There was a HUGE pumpkin outside of the ice cream shop.  We had such a great family day, it was almost like having a mini-vacation!

It’s All Good Until…

This afternoon, Lexi and I enjoyed the cooler days and had a snack outside. She was singing, playing, and running and just enjoying our time together.



Oh, “POO”!
And this face . . . .
turned into this face!

And I certainly can’t blame her! 
(Daddy, we need a new pooper-scooper!!)  Needless to say bath time came early!
