Lydia's Thanksgiving Party

Lydia attends Discovery Days preschool twice a week. She has really enjoyed it and has made many new friends. This is from their Thanksgiving party.

Enjoying the Weather!

Lydia got these new clothes for fall and really wanted to wear them. It is kind of a mix/match look, don't you think? However, I LOVE the boots! I just wish they were red and she had a little red cowgirl outfit to go with it like I did when I was her age!

The excited look on Lydia's face was from seeing our neighbor's cat coming up on our porch!

Halloween with the Henderson Family!

The kids chose their costumes - Calvin usually does, but Lydia was really into it this year. Calvin was a Stormtrooper (had to be Star Wars related of course!) and Lydia was Cinderella (but she REALLY IS Cinderella and Cinderella IS REAL...according to Lydia, I mean Cinderella).

Calvin enjoyed carving pumpkins this year and actually got his hands dirty! Prior to this year he was scared to touch the inside of the pumpkin, but he dove in this year.

Lydia didn't like the smell and actually seemed scared of the inside of the pumpkin! We all enjoyed the finished product though - but the deer ate it and we don't have a picture!

Fall Festival at Elkins Lake Baptist Church

The kids really enjoyed the fun at our church on Halloween. There were games, a bounce house, pizza, prizes, and lots of friends.

Calvin tried climbing the rock wall and did pretty good. Of course Lydia had to do as big brother did, but she didn't get very far by herself!

Most of all, the kids seem to enjoy just being silly and getting to have S'mores after a hayride at a little campfile! It was a great night for everyone!

Day at the 7-Acre Wood

Lydia and I went with some moms to this place in Conroe for the morning. We got to see animals and Lydia got a lot of play time! It is a really neat place to go!
