Maclain's 2nd Birthday Party

Last weekend we had a nice, small birthday party for Maclain.  We invited her closest friends from church and had it at Chick-fil-A.  It was so nice because we really didn't have to do anything!  Chick-fil-A did it all... from the set up to the clean up.  All we had to do was show up!  It was a great choice for her 2nd birthday and I think the kids had a lot of fun,too!

I can't believe our sweet girl will be 2 tomorrow!  It's been a fast couple of years, that's for sure!

A Few Random Things

Here are a few random things we have been up to lately:

Playing outside in the cold... (cold to us is 55 degrees!)

Maddox got his face painted at our church Fall Festival... the cutest lion ever!

Maclain loves to try on the hats at Books A Million

Back Home

The kids and I headed up to Opelika this past weekend to visit my family.  We had not been in town since July so it felt so good to go home!  We left around 8:30 Friday morning, and with the hour time difference we made it to Opelika just after 11:00.  I was very nervous about traveling with all 3 kids alone, but they all really surprised me.  Miller slept most of the way and only cried a couple times for a very short time, and Maddox was happy as could be with his movies and my kindle. :)  Maclain had a couple of hard moments but nothing too bad.  Thankfully the drive is only 3 1/2 hours... definitely bearable!  We had a great weekend and packed in as much fun as we could...

This girl loves to swing!

He wore this a lot while we were there!

Maclain needed the mask too!

Miller enjoyed the park too! :)

Halloween 2013

We kicked Halloween off this year with Trunk or Treat last Sunday night.  All the kids had fun walking around to the different trunks and getting lots of yummy candy!  Maddox was so polite and loved every minute of it!  Maclain got the idea a whole lot better than I thought she would and could not wait to tear into her candy!

Maclain, Maddox and Kate... This is Maddox's posed smile now :)
Then on Wednesday was Maddox's annual parade and party at school.  He enjoyed himself so much more this year and really did great up on stage.  Being in front of a crowd really isn't his favorite thing, but he handled himself like a champ! 

He looks so BIG! :)

Love him!!
Then on Thursday evening we made our 3rd annual trip over to the Cowart's for dinner and trick-or-treating.  It was so much fun!  We all enjoyed a yummy dinner together then changed the kids into their costumes and hit the road for some candy.  The kids did so well and it was great to continue this tradition!
