It's a Boy!

We decided to have a gender reveal party this time around. It was so much fun! It was really low key. I had a small urge to go all Pinterest crazy but my sister reigned me in. :) We found out what we were having the day before. It was so hard to keep it a secret! We made a big dinner for some close friends and family. Chili and cornbread...yum! We had everyone come wearing either pink or blue...whatever they thought we were going to have. Natalie was not happy that we kept it a secret from her too! :) Anyway...we filled a box with balloons and once everyone got to our house we let the girls open the box. It turned out awesome. 





Everyone thought it was going to be a boy....almost. :)

I had Gracie video it too. That is definitely my favorite!

County Fair

Last Sunday we took the girls to the fair. So much fun! They are seriously getting way too big. We got them an unlimited ride pass. Shane too. They wanted to go on every ride. When they were too short to go on a ride they were so sad! I think their favorites were the spinning rides. And the flying swings...they were super happy to go on those. I think because Shane didn't have to go with them. They loved going on the ride all by themselves. :)  My favorite part of course was getting a corn dog. There is nothing like a corn dog from a fair! Especially for a pregnant person. :) 
 Last year Heidi was too short for the Ferris Wheel so this year she was so so happy to get to go on it. 
 The flying swings
 This ride flung the girls all over the place


 Poor Natalie almost got a black eye from this ride. Her head flew forward and hit the safety bar. 
 The last ride was the merry go round. 
 Have you ever had an icee from a Koha Ice truck? Seriously soo good! Like a snow cone but the ice is softer. Another one of my favorite parts of the day. :)
I thought it was cute that they all had the same "tattoos"

Happy Halloween!

This year was kinda crazy! We were so behind before we ever got started! I totally blanked on getting pumpkins. When we finally remembered to go it was two days before Halloween. We have been going to the same pumpkin patch every year since before we even had the girls. It's a tiny cute little place but they love it. So I learned this year that if you wait till two days before Halloween to go to the pumpkin patch you will only have two options for a pumpkin...big and super big. Seriously...they were all huge. Needless to say we only got one giant pumpkin this year instead of the 4 we usually get. I figured I'd run to the grocery store and get a couple smaller ones that they always have around Halloween. Nope! They didn't have any either! It's okay though cause our one giant pumpkin turned out pretty cute.





On Halloween night the girls were so excited and so ready to go trick-or-treating! Shane ended up having to work late so they were dressed and ready to go, waiting by the front door for him to get home. Good thing for me is that gave me time to get pictures before they took off. :)


 



We used all the same costumes from Heidi's birthday. The girls actually loved getting to wear their costumes twice. :) It was a perfect night for trick-or-treating. The weather was perfect. Usually because it's so cold and the girls have been so little, we would only take the girls around the culdesac that we live near. This year they were way to big for that! Shane took them all the way around the neighborhood. I got tired after the normal section so I stopped back at the house and passed out candy. All in all it was a pretty fun year. The girls are already talking about what they are going to dress up as for the next 3 years. :)
