Our Little Gnome!

This was Gracyn's first halloween! It took me awhile to decide what I wanted her to be. I finally stumbled upon this costume and loved it! She makes such a cute, little gnome! Clint and I were taking her around to some of our friend's house when we decided it would be funny to make her a "roaming gnome." So, we took her to campus and Wilson park and got some cute, random pictures. We had a blast, not so sure how much Gracyn enjoyed it. Here are some of the places visited by the Roaming Gnome!

That night, Gracyn helped me hand out candy to the trick or treaters. She did such a great job!

Such a Big Girl!

Not a lot of things going on in the past few weeks. Gracyn did say "bye bye" the other day. She hasn't said it since but Clint and I both heard it and she was waving bye when she said it so we are convinced! I thought I would just post a few things going on around here that shows how big Gracyn is getting!

She is starting to outgrow her exersaucer. It's about time we take off the rotating chair and make it just a play table.

The other night I was unloading the dishwasher and she decided she wanted to help. She climbed up their all on her own. It was cute at first, but now it's becoming difficult to load or unload it because she thinks it's play time.

I have gotten into the habit of bringing Gracyn to bed with me when she wakes up at night. The doctor even told me I was her lollipop and that is why she is waking up at night. So, a couple nights ago when she woke up Clint turned off the monitor and would not let me go get her. It was tough but after a couple minutes of crying she went back to sleep. The next two nights she didn't wake up at all. This will be the fourth night so I'm hoping it will go as good as the past few nights.

Fall Fest!

This past weekend was my ten year high school reunion. I had two vacation days that I had to use up by the end of the month so I decided to take Thursday and Friday off and just make it a four day weekend.

I started my vacation off with Jazzercise. I had a great workout then Gracyn and I did a little shopping. The rest of my day was spent making hairbows, pinwheels, and cupcakes. I have a lemon cupcake recipe that is really good so I decided to play off it and make some new flavors. I ended up with lemon raspberry and white chocolate raspberry. DELICIOUS! We sent some lemon cupcakes to The Randall's. They just brought their baby boy,Lawson, home from the hospital. I can't wait to meet the little guy!

Friday, Clint and I went shopping for Gracyn's Halloween costume. I liked the strawberry fairy costume, but he didn't. We ended up coming home with nothing. Poor kid is going to have to go trick or treating as a bum! Remind me in the future to NOT ask Clint's opinion! I'm just going to have to go shopping by myself this week and hope I find something.

Later that afternoon we headed down to Alma. We stopped by my dad's house for a little bit before meeting Katie, Eric, and Caroline at the school. We had a great time seeing everyone from high school and seeing their little kids run around. Clint and Eric got a kick out of Katie and my senior photos on the wall. I have to admit, they were pretty bad. After that we went home and let the girls play a little before bedtime.

Playtime! Gracyn is finally old enough to really play with Caroline and not just sit there.

The next morning, the girl's were chasing each other. It had to be the cutest thing they have done yet! They just thought it was so funny and giggled the whole time they were running/crawling.

After Katie and I had cupcakes for breakfast we took the girls to the Neumeier's Fall Festival in Fort Smith. We went to Amanda's booth to buy some fabulous bows. Gracyn got her Thanksgiving and Christmas bow along with another great bow. Thanks Amanda for being so wonderful to our little girls!

We finally made it over to the pumpkins and this is where the fun began!

Look at those sweet girls!

Such a big girl! While Caroline was on her pony ride, Gracyn ventured over for some other pictures.

On a hayride! This was the first place scarecrow.

She loved the 3 Little Pigs!

We had planned on getting home in time to cook out before the Arkansas vs. Texas A&M game started. However, Clint and Eric stayed up all night playing video games so we knew they would probably still be asleep. So, we went to eat lunch at Chili's. We got back to the house in time to watch the game and get ready for the reunion. We sent the girl's to their grandparent's homes then headed back to the high school. We had dinner and visited with some old friends then watched our senior video. Oh the memories!

Just a small group showed up, but it was great seeing those that did come!

It has been a great ten years since high school. So much has happened. People moved off and went to college, now have jobs, many of us have been blessed with sweet babies. I can't wait to see what the next ten years hold and can't wait to see everyone then!
