Trunk or Treat

Tonight we had trunk or treat at our church.  However, before trunk or treat, Madalyn's kindergarten class went to the pumpkin patch this afternoon. They had a good time. I didn't get to go with them this time. But they all got a little pumpkin to bring home.

A few pics from her trip...

Madalyn's class-the sun was a little bright

Time for Trunk or Treat!

Madalyn was Barbie Princess of Power aka Super Hero Barbie

It's Madalyn to save the day!

My little Peacock

Her feathers didn't spread out like they were suppose to...we couldn't get them to for some reason.

She was roaring like a tiger in this pic...LOL!

I had not put her costume on her til tonight...when I first put it on, she got up with the biggest smile on her face and twirled around and around like a ballerina. I took that to mean that she really liked her costume.

Checking out her shoes

Not sure how I got this GREAT picture, but I told Alexis to go stand by Madalyn. She walked over to Madalyn, took her hand and they both smiled. WOW!

At Church


Alexis made her rounds and decided it was time to sample some of what was inside her pumpkin. :0)

We went on a hayride pulled by horses. Alexis was having a fit to get to the horses and to ride. She really enjoyed the ride. Madalyn wanted to play games instead of ride.

Apple Picking

This weekend we went to Greer to see my parents.  Since Madalyn has been born we have gone every fall to pick apples and pumpkins. We had planned on going last weekend, but we were all getting over the stomach virus so postponed til this past weekend. We knew it was going to be chilly Saturday but had no idea we would need our snow clothes to apple pick! It was so COLD, the wind was blowing like crazy. Madalyn was freezing. We let her pick a few apples and then we bought the rest. She was content with that too. Even though it was cold we enjoyed our ride through the mountains.

We were later apple picking, so most of the apples were high up.  

This was the coldest we have been yet to apple pick!

Madalyn and Nana made a pumpkin cake.

A Day at the Zoo

Last weekend, we had yucky weather due to Hurricane Matthew and during the mist of that storm, I came down with a stomach virus and then I have shared my virus with everyone in my family, it's been a rough week. We have had a nice weekend and today the weather was beautiful, so we took a family trip to the Riverbanks Zoo.  We had not seen the Sea Lion exhibit and now that Alexis is almost 2, she really enjoys seeing animals now.  We had a very nice morning and a great trip to the zoo.

Alexis spotted the tiger first and got very excited.

Grizzly Bears, the last time we saw them back in April for Madalyn's school field trip, they were both sleeping.

The zoo was decorated for Halloween and for "Boo in the Zoo"

Alexis liked the penguins.

She also liked the fish. I think it was because she get close to them more than the other animals.

We fed the giraffes.

Madalyn's two favorites: the giraffe and the zebra

Sea Lions

We couldn't leave the zoo with a ride on the merry-go-round

Alexis first merry-go-round ride

 She liked it! :0)
