Harvest Festival and Weekend Happenings

Friday night was the Harvest Festival at Kayla's school.  We have gone every year and always have a good time.  The girls run from game to game playing and talking to all their friends.  Kayla is a part of the Sundance Singers so she also performed.  Afterwards we went out to dinner at Chili's and then home and ready for bed.

Kayla ready to perform,

Saturday morning was our community garage sale so while hubby was outside getting rid of some of our junk I made us all donuts for breakfast with Halloween sprinkles of course,

Kayla is enjoying her vampire teeth

After everything was cleaned up from the yard sale I did some antiquing.  I had to stop into this bookstore for the smell alone, I love the smell of old books!

The girls spent most of the day riding bikes while I was gone and when I came home they came inside to play and I started on dinner

I made this pork roast which came out delicious!

After dinner it was movie night, Tim Burton's The Corpse Bride.  The girls pretty much love all of Tim Burton's movies.  Makes me so proud!

Sunday was a great day spent at home, the girls rode bikes in the morning while hubby did the yard and washed the cars.   Kayla played online for a bit and then Brooklyn got her turn.

Afterwards we did a Halloween craft which is now my favorite decoration in the house.

Those two little pumpkins look so cute lit up with battery operated candles in the evening.

Snacks and some story writing

I ended up making chocolate chip cookies in the afternoon to add into our Halloween buckets we put together to BOO a few friends this week.

We delivered one "BOO" once the sun went down and the other one will be delivered during this week since that family was out of town for the weekend.  If you don't know what it is to "BOO" someone it's just a fun thing you leave on someone's doorstep and ring or knock and then run away so when they open the door all they find is a fun surprise! 

Friday night after we went out to dinner we hit up The Dollar Store and bought the buckets and a few things to go in them such as glow sticks, cotton candy, spooky teeth, skull straws etc. and then we put some of the cookies in that we baked.  The girls love this, they think it's so fun which I will admit it is pretty fun.

Once we were home it was time to get ready for Monday morning. 
 Can't wait for Friday night!!
