One raindy day (and there have been A LOT) we covered the girls room in a massive tent with our new blankets (thank Nana and Annie). That kept them occupied for several hours- the toys just seemed so much more fun in the tent!
Here's a view of the inside of the tent- everybody doing their own thing. They even created their own "rooms" although that didn't work very well in Naomi's opinion.
Maddie has followed in big sisters footsteps this week and has started carrying chapter books around with her reading a good bit more than usual (which was hardly ever). I"m so glad she's finally getting into it without me pushing too much!
I don't have any picture but we've also done our share of fall baking this week. For Bible study on Tuesday night, we made pumpkin dip with ginger snaps and caramel dip with fresh fruit. So yummy! I love the smells of fall baking. Today we made those chocolate surprise cupcakes that have the cream cheese and chocolate chip mixture in the middle of the chocolate cupcake. I died the cream cheese mixture orange and then we iced the top with orange cream cheese icing- again, so yummy! And I wonder why I can't ever stick to a diet in the fall!
Tomorrow is actual halloween and the girls have big plans. Abbey wants to be Hermione from Harry Potter, Maddie will be Princess Lea and Naomi will be something involving pink fluffy princess dresses I'm sure although I hope to convince her to be R2D2 even though she has not a clue what that is.
Right now the girls are at some friends house for a high school musical party. They were so excited to wear their new pajamas and wigs. Get a load of this...
Meet Gabriella and Sharpay. No worries to those of you who might- they're not growing up too fast, they just love to sing and dance!
