Happy Halloween

The "Medical Team" was ready to go.  Like all good health care providers...they were each armed with a bag full of lollipops to hand out.

Before getting the "treats", we started out at a pre-party with the neighbors.  Here are Bix and K fueling up before hitting the streets.

Fi and little W ate fast and were ready to go!

Just some of our group getting ready to go. (Yes, that is Fi pulling the wagon.)

Mommy could hardly keep up with Bix running from house to house.  Fi was taking it all a bit more leisurely.

So much fun for all!

We didn't want the night to end!

Well, maybe the Big Bad Wolf was ready to go home.

Costume Party

We all like dressing up.  The girls really got into the wigs while Mommy and Daddy were getting ready for a party.

Good thing Mommy has lots of wigs...

Plenty for everyone.

Bix didn't know who Mrs. Roper was, but she thought the costume was AWE-some!

The Fire Chief, Tissue Box, and Honey Badger don't care.

Mr. and Mrs. Roper want to thank Greg and Amy for the lovely time.

Storybook Parade

The older preschool kids march around for the little ones dressed as a character and carry the book with them.  Bix was ready!

A little bit of a change from last year's Gingerbread Man.  The mask wouldn't stay on, so that was big motivation for a costume with no mask.

While Bix was marching, Fi was hugging...everyone.  People she knows.

Some she doesn't.

More hugging.


Best hug of all.

Fall Festival

The girls were dressed and ready to go!

Once there, it didn't take Fi long to find the candy.

Bix quickly found David Nathan, and the games began!

Oh, what to do next?

Find Finley!!!  What would a Fall Festival be without these two together?

Fi scored some more chocolate, and was a happy camper.

Does this remind you of anyone?  Click here.

To the Pumpkin Patch

Perfect day with Grandma and Aunt Liz.  Starting with a tasty lunch at Corner Bakery. (thanks Grandma...Go Rangers!)

Bix was ALL smiles.  She has been talking about pumpkins for weeks.

Fi, while not as sure, warmed up quickly to the fun of choosing "just the right one."

My precious little "pumpkins."

One thing these two have in common...never looking at the camera at the same time.

This was about as close as we got.

Always helpful, Fi insisted on pulling the pumpkins to the car.

Bix was ready to get home and ride her bike. (Did I ever tell you Bix changes focus rapidly?)

Autumn Fun

We went over to Grandma and Poppo's to make candied apples.  The girls were dressed in their new duds from Fifi, and ready to go.

Before we could make the apples, we had to help clean up after the storm.

Bix and Fi were all about the sweeping.

Fi even found a big glob of hail that hadn't melted cool.

Fi could have stayed there all day just pushing the broom.

Bix really wanted to get to those apples.

At last!!!

Fi was all smiles too.

Home Again, Home Again

What a wonderful trip! Sad that we had to go home, but we were able to convince the girls there was one more "ride" to go on...the airplane.  
At the airport, Fi was a big help carrying the luggage.

Here she is in action...

On the plane, Bix was engrossed with the safety information. (and her lollipop)

Waiting for our bags, the girls were glad Mommy had packed some Cheetos.

I guess the trip is really over now.  Our stroller (which never made it to us in FL) got home from it's vacation yesterday.  We are all officially home now.  Sigh...

Magic Kingdom...Day 2

Last day at Disney, and the girls were ready to go.

Nothing in the world like Main Street, USA.

We met lots of characters this day.  Starting with Pluto.

While waiting to meet Mickey, Bix performed a little magic.

Bix gave Minnie a picture she drew, and Fi was all about the hugs.

Pirate Goofy greeted us outside the Pirates of the Caribbean.

Train ride around the park was a little break.

So much fun to be had!

They also met Aurora.



What could be better than topping all that fun off with a massive ice cream cone!?

We also hit the raceway again.  Bix took her driving quite seriously.

Fi had a little less control, but based on the peals of laughter, could not have had a better time.

There's our cool-rider.

Fi...checking to make sure Daddy was ok after the bumpy ride.

This family really loves the People Mover.

Once more we battled the evil Zurg to help Buzz Lightyear.

Look at that concentration.

The smiles say it all.

Three days of nonstop fun, and we could have kept going...
