Catching up - Fall 2010

I have been the worst blogger ever...I can't believe I've let over 3 months pass since I last blogged. We have been very busy, but that's not an excuse to not blog. I want to capture and remember all these events in our lives, and I've just been in a blogging funk. So this is my lame attempt to catch up some and hopefully not ever go this long again without blogging.

Kristen went to Anna's 5th birthday party at Orr Family Farm (in August...see how far behind I am!!) She had so much fun with the girls, and she just loves babies so she loved playing with Mia. After a lot of coaxing she FINALLY got on a horse. She's been on a horse one other time, but it was at her daycare and she was really little so I don't think she even realized what was going on.

Over Labor Day weekend we took a little trip to Grapevine and stayed at the Gaylord Texan. We'd saved so much on our summer vacation so we splurged a little bit :) Well, we splurged on the hotel but couldn't even afford to eat in the restaurants there so we'd leave the property and go to the cheap restaurants...except for breakfast at a little coffee shop in the hotel. The hotel was having an Alice in Wonderland event so it was decorated really cute and there were pictures with characters and a lot of other special events. Kristen had a blast and I enjoyed a nice, relaxing weekend.

Kristen attended a Cheer Clinic and then they performed a cheer and dance at the Freshman football game. She had so much fun at the clinic, and then even more fun at the game. She felt like such a big girl, and I felt like I already had a teenager on my hands...she didn't even sit with me at the game much...she wanted to sit with her friends.

She's on the far left on the back row.

She right in the middle of that crowd :)
On Halloween we had friends visiting from Texas so I took Kristen, Jackie and Kaitlyn to Storybook Forest in Edmond. It was so fun for them to walk through the forest and get candy at each of the stories. At the end we went on a hayride, played games, and made smores at the campfire. It was cold but definitely worth it.
