Pumpkin Fun

Yesterday, we carved our pumpkin. The girls had fun with it. Aaron wasn't very interested. Molly got out all the seeds and we roasted them. Tonight, the kids decorated a pumpkin cake with their buddy Nolan. We are ready for Halloween!

We celebrated the girls' birthdays today with their grandparents. Brian's parents and my mom came over.  Nana made a beautiful Frozen cake for the girls. They were so excited!  They also got Elsa and Ana costumes. Rayna wore her Ana dress all day!  Grandma and Grandpa gave the girls gift cards. We made a trip to Target today and they had a blast picking out stuff.  Aaron had fun celebrating too. I think all the fun wore him out because he took an extra long nap!  So thankful for my family. :)

Brian's old company, Sealing Agents, had a little mini reunion tonight. A bunch of his old coworkers got together for dinner. Our good friends Jeff and Kenna watched the kiddos for us. Kenna texted me this picture while we were gone. As you can see, they had fun playing with their buddies and eating cupcakes.  :-)

Birthday Nails

My friend Leslie sent the girls some Jamberry nails for their birthdays. Stylish little girls with their manicures!

Celebrating Molly

 We've had a fun couple of days celebrating the birthday girl.  Yesterday, we had a birthday brunch, presents, and her favorite dinner--shrimp fettuccine alfredo and orange salad.  Then today, we went to Chuck E. Cheese.  I can't believe our baby is SEVEN!!

Walk n Roll

Today we had to privilege of participating in the Joni and Friends "Walk n Roll."  Brian and I took turns working in our church's booth and the kids had a good time. Our good fronds, the Hiltons, walked in memory of our Zeke. :)

She's counting down the days!

Molly's birthday is one week from today. She is beyond excited. She got a birthday card from church and a birthday letter from State Employees Credit Union. I'm sure she's going to be checking the mail daily for birthday cards. I can't believe my baby will be seven next week!

Daddy Date to the Fire Station

I had a lot to do for church today so Brian took the kids on a little Daddy date.  They went to the Wesley Chapel fire station to learn about fire safety.  They had a bounce house, got their faces painted, and came home with all kinds of goodies.  They also came home with lots of fire safety knowledge.  It was a fun day with Daddy!
