Happy Fall

It's been a crazy busy couple of months for this fam!  School started, new job, party planning and more!  I'm hoping to get back to blogging on a regular basis again.  Don't hold me to that though. 

Jack's having fun and doing great in school.  He really likes his class and his 1st grade teacher.  He comes home with very funny stories, which he tells in great detail!  He loves to write and illustrate his own stories, which is incredibly cute. 

Ms. Maddie is cracking us up.  She says the funniest damn things, like referring to her Uncle George as "Curious George" and getting upset with us when we correct her.  Oh, and she found some attitude somewhere!  Like the other day when she asked for more chocolate and Nathan said "no", Maddie turned and looked at him and said, "I was talkin' to Momma"!  Ok then...  :)

On Saturday we took the day off from responsibility and party planning and traveled "north" for some much needed outside time.  We went to Grandpa Dave and Grandma Debbie's land for the day.  The kids spent some time riding the four wheelers and Nathan and I went for a hike.  It was a great fall day and was just what I needed to get rid of my stress...for the day. 

Halloween was  really fun this year. Jack and Maddie dressed up as a Cowboy and Cowgirl, which was Maddie's idea.  Maddie was able to actually trick or treat and understand what she was doing.  Jack ran with his friends and would always grab a piece of candy for his sister at the houses that left a bowl on the step.  I dressed up as a cowgirl too.  It was fun...and cold, which I guess is expected for October in Wisconsin. 

Thanks for checking in on us!
