Princess's and Ladybugs

Today marked day one of "rainy season" GO FIGURE! So since the kids are still too young to care, and Maddie is usually in bed by 6:30 anyways, we are foregoing trick-or-treating and staying indoors. We are going to carve a pumpkin, bake halloween cookies, watch The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown and pass out (and probably eat) halloween candy to any trick-or-treaters that decide to get out in the rain! Better luck next year!

Playing in the Leaves and Pumpkin patches...

Thought I would do a quick blog with some pictures of the pumpkin patch, the girls in the yard and fun with Nana. We are enjoying our visit, we only have 3 more days till she leaves. : (

Hope everyone else is enjoying their fall weather like we are!!! I'll blog again real soon!

A week with Daddy and a trip to the Aquarium

Russel took the entire week off this past week, so we've been enjoying some Daddy time. It's been really nice having him around, I even got to sleep in some (him too, don't worry i wasn't greedy so we alternated days) which is a RARE occurrence in our household. My body wasn't quite sure what the heck was going on with all the rest. Lol. But all in all, it's been a really good week and I'm kinda sad that everything will go back to normal after tomorrow. ::sniffles:: Although my mom does come in on Thursday so I am excited for that and I know we will have fun when she visits.

Today we took the girls up to the coast, to the Aquarium. We were actually a bit disappointed with our "adventure" after the really long ride and almost $40 we shelled out for it, but Rebekah had fun and I guess in the long run that's all that really matters, right? And the trip to the coast was GORGEOUS, all the colorful leaves (which we didn't stop to take ANY pictures of Russel...) i'm just sayin'...

Here are a few pictures of our week and until next post!!

Maddie in the yard

Bekah wanted to pose with our new "scarecobe", lol.

She was saying "OH MY GOSH it's so beautiful!"

They both loved the fishies, Maddie kept trying to catch them

Maddie didn't have much of an opinion of anything else after that...

Fall is here!

I took that pic of the tree in our backyard...I love this time of year! I love the weather, and I love the changing colors, hot chocolate, and warm chili. But most of all I love the holidays!! Halloween and Thanksgiving--SO FUN! Even though this Thanksgiving it will just be the four of us. That makes me kind of sad. O WELL! more turkey for me! ; )~

I am excited to get out of the house and maybe take a drive and see some of the beautiful colors that are starting to come out, i think we'll do that soon. My mom is coming to visit in a couple weeks. Russel celebrates his 28th birthday on the 15th, he's getting soooo old! heehee. Then Maddie turns ONE on November 6th! Busy, busy at the Beaty's. And in the next couple weeks we will also be going to the Fall Festival and the Pumpkin Patch, a family favorite! So i should have lots of good pictures to share with you all then! Getting pics of two kids in the pumpkin patch should be interesting to say the least. But...until then here are a few pics of the girls so you can see their smiling faces.
