The Pumpkin Farm

I am a bit behind on blogging... i just realized I haven't posted about last weeks trip to the pumpkin farm! The kids have been sick all weekend, but are on the mend... and mama has a few new wrinkles and gray hairs!!

Anyhow, we went to our local pumpkin farm, which unfortunately will be a Kroger by next fall, with our friends, the E's.

It was a great fall day, crisp air, but sunny enough not to be cold. The kids kept taking their jackets on and off...

As always the hayride was a hit. The farm really does it up with deep mud and big hills and lots of bumps! I am so sad that it is going away! We had a great time and will be on the lookout for a new farm next year!

Cinderella's Ball

Saturday, Megan's fairy grandparents arrived just as she awoke from her royal nap and presented her with her glittery ball gown and tiara.... the gown was a hit, the tiara.... not so much.

Cinderella quickly hid her cinder cleaning clothes and was transformed into the princess that she dreams of being!

As the guests arrived, Cinderella greeted them with grace and enthusiasm that only a true princess can. We dined on elegant fare of hot dogs and taco soup and sipped bubbly soda and juice boxes to our hearts content!

The gifts were opened with zeal and enthusiasm, all of which have been loved and played with ever since.

The cake was a nightmare for the royal baker, but luckily tasted good.

As the clock struck 7 the royal ball dwindled to an end which was just in time, because something happened to the grandparents magic spell and instead of midnight, Cinderella began to melt down about 7:05 into a pile of tulle and glitter.... maybe too much cake?

Our Anniversary Weekend Getaway.... Warning: Picture Heavy!

We dropped the kids off at Gram & Grandpa's house and headed off to an overnight --- just us!!!

We started by heading to North Market in Columbus for lunch and ice cream at;it lived up to the expectations, I was under the gun to order because there was a line, but I loved the cider sorbet and goat cheese with cherry ice cream... I will have to make a second trip to try black coffee, lemon blueberry, and smoked chocolate with homemade marshmallows and.... maybe it will take more than one trip!
Mark got a great gyro,

Then we drove through the countryside, it was beautiful. A perfect time to drive because the leaves were changing and it was cool but not too cold, which reminded me of why we got married in October in the first place!!

Then we reached our final destination of the trip:

It was lovely,

beautiful town,

beautiful homes,

beautiful weekend!

My grandma, Granis, has four sisters who are still living and they decided to have a mini-reunion this week.
There were lots of remember whos and whens, a little bickering as only sisters can, and some laughs.

I hope Granis had a great visit with her sisters, I enjoyed seeing them and seeing the sparkle in her eye a little brighter.

Meggie Got a Haircut!

On the way to the salon, Meg was super excited to get her haircut-
Once she got in the chair, she wasn't so sure. Gram's lap to the rescue!!
Everything went well after that-

All done! As beautiful as ever!
She had to call her daddy to tell him all about it!

Here's the back!
