Balloons, Fall and Fun!!

All I can say is we had a great weekend and I'm sad it's over!! (Sorry in advance...tons of pictures)

Friday night the girls, Jimmy(nephew) and I made white chocolate chip cookies. We even used the big daddy mixer to help make them. They were very yummy....but now they are gone. :( After Jimmy left and tons of playing around, the girls and I crashed Friday night while watching National Treasure. We just adore this movie! We basically had a slumber party minus the popcorn.

Saturday...we had a busy fabulous day. We met up with my SIL and went to a local farm's fall festival. There were crafts, food and things for the kids to do. They had a mini corn maze for the kids to run through. Aunt Rosie bought both girls a mini pumpkin and Indian corn. Our table is very festive now. dry glue can glue a pumpkin stem back to the pumpkin. Just in case you all ever have a pumpkin emergency like we did.

Saturday we also went to a Hot Air Balloon Festival. It was totally amazing and visually awesome. The girls had so much fun watching and cheering for each balloon as they lifted up into the blue sky. I believe this is an event everyone should go to at least once. We will go back again next year. A lot of the fun was waiting around for the launch the girls played and ran around and around and around....of course they had tons of food there too.

If you want to see all 111 pictures that I took Saturday at the balloon fair. Click here. I did get picture happy..but they are so pretty I couldn't help it. I can't wait to scrap these pictures.

Yesterday Gigi had her first home game for the Little Wildcats...As hard as they cheer for them they just can't seem to win a game. But, Gigi is loving cheerleading and looks forward to the games..I'm hoping we win at least one game this season. Go Cats!!

I hope you all have a fabulous day and a great week!! Enjoy every second with your family and friends.
