We had a busy Thanksgiving this year. The kids and I went to Edmond the weekend before. Since my mom was out of town I had some sleepovers with a couple of friends! It was fun! We also cleaned out and organized my moms art room as a surprise, she was excited! We made a quick trip to Texas and survived a little stomach bug, then came back to Newkirk in time to cook for the spaghetti dinner to kick off basketball season! So as you know now our life is basketball!!


Yes I'm so late in posting about Halloween and I wish I would've done it long ago. My computer crashed last week so while I'm waiting for a hopeful recovery, these are the only pics I have of the kids from Halloween. They decided to go as super Heroes, so we've got Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, and Super Girl! If they don't recover my stuff you can bet they will be reprising their rolls....

I did shot a couple of screen grabs to text to my mom!
The best I had of all 4:

And the sweetest ever of Cooper and Drew! Cooper was Batman his first Halloween, so I thought it was funny he wanted Drew to be Robin!

Pumpkin Patch

We visited the Quail Valley Farms pumpkin patch again this year. Since we've been a couple of years ago they've added a fun tire swing and a couple of slides. I'll let the pics show you how much fun the kids had!

Pumpkin Carving

Last Friday Drew, Kellyn, Maddie and I went to Edmond for ballet. We kicked off the weekend with pumpkin carving at Mama Jo's with Charlie, Chaney, David, Leslie, and Charlie. I carved 2 pumpkins....Maddie wanted Elsa (I know shocking) but she settled for a princess crown instead!

Cooper decided to stay back with Dad because he thought that going to ballet and to Molly's Barbie party wasn't a good plan! He was a little upset that he missed the pumpkin carving. But there is always next year!

Fall Break

We decided we'd take a little family trip up to Kansas City for Fall Break! We did a little something for everyone and had a great time! This is our second trip up there and the kids have loved it both times!

We started Friday at the Oak Park Mall where we visited The American Girl Store!

The little doll salon had both Bitty Babies looking nice and clean!

We checked into our hotel and let the kids swim before venturing out to dinner. We stayed at the Embassy Suites Plaza, which was a great hotel and even better pool. It has a large 3 foot pool, a deeper pool on the lower level and a nice large whirlpool! Bonus is it's close to lots of restaurants and shopping!

The next day we visited Lego Land Discovery Center, which was fun! I think Cooper enjoyed it!

Right next door we walked through Sea Life Acquairium, which I purchased with our Lego tickets. It was a small nice Acquairium!

To cap the day off we made it just in time to enjoy a few minutes of this Kaleidoscope kids activity at Hallmark. It's such a neat place for kids to just create things out of paper! I made a puzzle for Drew and for Kellyn who was asleep!
Best of all it's free!

So overall it was a great day of some good family time!

Sunday we visited Ikea and the Legends Outlet Center before heading back!

Then they were spent!

I'm glad we got some good family time in before the craziness of the holidays and basketball season! It was nice since the kids last day of fall break was Monday we had a day at home!
