We sure love our fireplace.
(and look, we have a dad!)

My view

Polly's view

Macy's view

As soon as we started the fire, Macy ran to get her rocking chair. She know's what's up. Polly quickly followed and came back with whatever she could find, an unrocking chair. Whatever works.


At dinner, something surely tragic happened to which Polly resonded with "It's not fair" (Sienna has a friend, Hayley), followed by dropping her head into her arms, "I'm just going to go to my castle now". I guess that's her happy place.

A prayer from the heart

Last night Polly said the sweetest prayer:

Dear Heavenly Fahver,

I Fankeful for God
I love God
I like going to church sometimes
I love Jesus
and I like playing with my friends
I Fankeful for everyfing

Haloween 4

4 Halloween events.

1. Pumpkin Carving

The ladies were very into cleaning out the pumpkins this year, despite Macy telling us before hand she was NOT touching the slimy parts.

2. Halloween Party

The night before Halloween Grandma Janet had a party for the kids. There were games, prizes, home-made pizzas and lots of treats. All the kids had a blast!

3. Pre-school Trunk-or-Treat

They had to sing for their candy. That's how it is at our house on a regular day, so Macy was right at home.

4. Halloween night.

Polly as Little Orphan Annie complete with dog, Sandy. This is my favorite costume we've ever done.
She informed me while getting ready. Next year she wants to be Cindallella.

Macy as a fairy.
She was very into modelling her costume. Very.
(fake laugh)

The next 5 years costumes are planned out as follows: Minnie Mouse, Elphaba (with green skin), angel, pine tree, and Flower princess. Very well rounded.
