Lights of the Ozarks

Saturday night, we all took a trip to Fayetteville's square to see them turn on the Christmas lights for the season. Unfortunately, by the time we arrived, they had already turned on the lights but we were able to see some of the Christmas parade, strange I know, since Thanksgiving is in two days but it was fun to see nonetheless. Parker seemed to enjoy it or at least we thought she did. There were tons of people there so we didn't stay too long since we could barely walk around. There should be things going on down there every night until Christmas so hopefully, we get a chance to go back down there again. Especially for the pony rides! I dropped the ball and forgot my camera but a lady was walking around taking free pictures so we jumped on that boat. It didn't turn out quite so well but it is a picture of the three of us so who cares!! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

Twilight

Well at 10 last night, I went to watch Twilight, since I have been anticipating it for months now. The books are so good that I just knew the movie would be too. Well, not so much. There are a lot of parts that were extremely cheesy and the special effects weren't too great either but it was necessary for me to watch the movie since I have read all of the books. There were some good parts and it was good to see the books on screen but if you haven't read the first book, then I wouldn't watch the movie. Actually, if you haven't read all of the books, I wouldn't watch the movie but it is all up to.

I give it a C-

Man, I'm slow!

A few weekends ago, Parker and I went to visit Boni, Emma and Hannah and I took a few pictures of them playing and I'm just now getting around to posting! I just haven't quite been in the blogging mood here lately but since Thanksgiving is right around the corner, I thought I would. The girls had a blast playing with each other and will get to do it all over again while I do a training for work, yeah for me! Instead of posting the pictures, I thought I would post the video. Sorry Boni, I had to.

Party at Gymboree




Sunday, Parker went to a birthday party for Davis, a boy in her class, at Gymboree. We had never been there so I was curious as to how it was all going to go. She had a lot of fun playing on all of the toys but it seemed to be too structured of a birthday party for me. They were wanting them to come and sit and do different activities but the average age was around 2 so it didn't work so well. They all just wanted to play. It has been a busy week so it has taken me a while to actually get the pictures up. She had such a great time and I'm thrilled after the week we had last week. She was sick from Sunday to probably Thursday. She wouldn't eat a thing! After 3 different tests at the doctor's office, they still weren't too sure what was wrong with her but we are thinking a viral or bacterial infection, yuck! She is better now and actually eating and it was just in time for her to go trick or treat last Friday!!

Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet!








Year two of trick or treating was a lot more fun than the first year but a lot more exhausting. Last year, we were able to go to the square and trick or treat there but we weren't going to make it this year so we went to the mall and went store to store. Parker seemed to have a lot of fun and just wasn't sure why everyone was giving her candy. She would put it in her Elmo and take it right back out! She did say "tick o teet" once and managed to say thank you but only after they weren't looking at her anymore. Parker's mimi made her costume this year and it turned out great. I am pretty sure that I didn't see another candy corn anywhere this year! After the mall, Parker and I went to go and trick or treat with Addison and her mommy, Mychal, around their neighborhood. They seemed to have a lot of fun too but it was getting late and cooler so we headed home with all of our loot! Enjoy the pictures.
