On October 6, 2011, Great-Aunt Sissy will turn 65...that is, some of our family and some close friends of hers got together to celebrate the last 65 years and the years to come. It was a great time, and you could tell Sissy had fun. When the party idea started, due to the time that it was set, it was apparent that the girls (for the sake of all who were attending), would NOT be there because it was starting RIGHT after naptime. HOWEVER, later on, we decided that the girls and Daddy would come down after naptime to visit with everyone......that turned in to PaPa coming up to watch football with Daddy during naptime and then driving them down to his house so that we didn't have two cars...great deal for us!

Here are some pics...some how the girls ended up benefitting from Sissy's party and coming out winners with new skeleton pjs that glow in the dark.....super cool!

Happy 65 Sissy...we look forward to many more birthdays with you!

YUM....for our first official Fall activity, we had a kickoff tonight with our new firepit, that Matt got for Christmas! For YEARS we've said that we wanted a firepit, and I'm not quite sure what kept us from getting one, but finally we have one. I see lots of firepit nights in our future! :)  After dinner, Matt started up the firepit and then we made smores with the was super fun and yummy at the same time....even better was snuggling up together later when the girls were in bed! :) Nothing beats a fire....even smores! :)

Here are some pictures from our smores event....I have to say, it was a little stressful making sure we didn't get INTO the firepit, but I think the girls really understood how dangerous it Sugar, she's a different story.

If you don't have a firepit, I HIGHLY recommend one.....

Hope You're Enjoying Fall too!
