We began our nice fall with our annual apple and pumpkin picking with Kayla and Jada. We started this with Kayla probably when she was about 4 and have continued (almost) every year. We were so excited for Ava to join our tradition!

Next up was Kayla's birthday. She had a Costume Zumba party! All the kids dressed up and did zumba!

Now, terrible mom-of-the-year award may go to me for not getting a good picture of Ava in her first Halloween costume (homemade may I add). I kept meaning to put her back in the costume and take pics but it is now almost December so that is not happening. Oh the shame...
And then we trick-or-treated with Maxx, the fisherman and his cousins. Ava actually took a nice snooze as we walked around the neighborhood.

On to Thanksgiving...We did our usual at my mom and dad's house. Lots of family, lots (too much) of food and lots of laughs.
Here's Ava before we left. Don't mind the mess and the binkie, this is (our) real life. Remember that pile of fabric and ribbon from a post a few weeks back? Well here she is in all her glory! I made Ava's dress! Let me repeat, I MADE A DRESS!

We'll round out Fall with Kara Bear's Christening! She was the perfect little angel and looked just like Ava the puritan in the family Christening dress! This dress was worn by my mom and her 2 sisters, my cousins, me, Sarah, Kayla, Jada, Ava and now Kara. (have I ever mentioned that we are so creative with our names?) It's a little piece of love that all the little girls have the honor of wearing.

So that's what we've been up to this fall! Now it's on to Christmas time and someone I know is going to be one very soon. How did that happen?
