Ella got some awesome new pink boots last week and she loves wearing them around. She brings them to me to put them on her all the time...even when she is wearing pajamas!

This girl is so cute!

Crazy Hair Day

Jack's school is having some sort of spirit week this week and every day involved dressing up in different ways (Red Day, Pajama Day, etc.) and today was crazy hair day. Jack wanted his hair in a mo-hawk of course. Some of the kids at the bus stop went all out and had different color stripes in their hair and Jack was looking a little shocked at that! Here he is before heading to the bus in the COLD weather (28 degrees at the bus stop today. Brrr!). I promise he wore a coat and mittens when we went down to the bus.

Harvest Hoedown Celebration

Yesterday was the Harvest Hoedown at Owen's school. The kids all come dressed as farmers and get to have a fun day of Fall themed activities. Here is Owen by his locker in his farmer clothes.
 In line with his farmer buddies to go into class.
 Circle time.

 Mixing red and yellow to make orange. Owen loves doing this.

 Making a monster from the Scary Monster book.

 His monster and candy tattoos.
 Hammering nails into a pumpkin. He LOVED this.

 Concentration face.

 Getting ready to head to the gym for more fun.
 Pumpkin rolling.
 Climbing the "haystack".

 Showing me the bracelet he made.
 Making a big apple pie.
 The kids got to head upstairs to the music room for a big sing-along with the other classes. Owen is right in the middle of that mess of kids.
 Owen also loves play-doh and spends a lot of his school time playing at the play-doh table. Here he is stamping his name into play-doh.

 Showing off his name except I cut it off in the picture. Oops!
