We had one cold, windy and rainy Halloween around our parts and it made for an interesting walk Trick-or-Treating. I always hate when that happens for the kids. They have to cover up the costumes they're so excited about, but I'm sure the candy makes up for it :)
My little cowgirl was in no mood for pictures. She would literally run screaming in the other direction if I so much as looked at her with the phone or camera in hand so these are the best I could do. I do have a few on my good camera I need to upload, but I didn't fare much better with it.
This picture cracks me up. That look on her face is so serious. She just loved her pink boots. I got her whole costume last minute at Target after Pottery Barn Kids cancelled my order a week later due to the little witch going out of stock. It worked out great though because Caroline was excited to be a cowgirl.
Saturday evening, we had Juston's annual work gala to attend in Lexington, at the same venue where Garth Brooks was playing. I have never seen the like of people crammed into one place, many of whom were three sheets to the wind by 10 pm. I'm going to wager some people did not make it to the encore. haha I HATED not to catch that concert. We started to get tickets to the late show on Saturday, but everything left was nosebleed and I just can't see paying the big bucks without a view to match, so we passed.
We didn't really get any good pictures of the two of us, besides an iPhone snapshot and a bad selfie, but I loved getting all gussied up and going to a fancy dinner with my hubby. I sure
missed my baby though. Two weekends in a row of being away overnight is too much for me. We bought our Auburn tickets from last weekend without really realizing it was going to put us away two weekends in a row and the gala was a can't miss, so we just hurried home Sunday after knocking out a very little bit of Christmas shopping. It was a whirlwind of a weekend for sure. One in which that extra hour of fall back came, conveniently, on a night we didn't have a toddler to wake us up at 5 am ;)
When we got home Sunday, we played with Caroline for a while and enjoyed a sunny afternoon outside, then I put Caroline down for her nap and headed to my sister's house to get her girls ready for their family pictures. My sister has never had professional photos done of their family since her third child came along eight years ago, so I thought it would be a great birthday gift. And I really wanted them outside during the fall with all the pretty colors so the timing worked out well. I can't wait to see how they turn out.
We've got a big, busy week ahead of us, too. All good things, but I always feel like this part of the year is sort of a blur since it seems like everyone stays so busy. One of the things I'm most looking forward to is one of our girls visiting with our Goddaughter on Friday! She was at UK with our Emi last year, but transferred back to her home college this year and we sure miss her. So I can't wait to squeeze those girls! And of course feed them. I'm in full on meal planning mode ;) I love cooking for my people. It's an outward expression of love in my book. Hope everyone enjoyed their weekends and got their extra hour. I will struggle with this time change. I always miss those extra daylight hours this time of year.
