Girls Weekend

Scott went hunting this weekend so it was just us girls.  It was a rainy, cold, dreary weekend and it was just what we needed.  The girls and I stayed in our pi's all day Saturday and did nothing but clean house and watch football (including 4 hours of my life I will never get back otherwise known as our loss to Bama).  

Friday night we went to Harper's school Fall Carnival.  We had a good time and Harper had a blast seeing all her friends and playing games.  How cute are Alice and the Queen of Hearts? They are so proud of their costumes.

And if you know us - you might can guess what Scott and I will be on Halloween.  Or you can wait 2 weeks and see pictures! :-)

We ran into one of our favorite sets of sisters at the carnival! My girls love these friends! 

(P.S. Try to guess how many Elsas were at the Carnival? If you guess at least 87.8% of all girls - you would be right!) 

Sunday was church and then Scott got home just in time for me to go to a fun party for my friend Tracy.  

There is this fun little place called Junque 2 Jewels in our town.  They provide materials (and a lot of help) and you can make all kinds of things like wood door hangers and big frames.  I have been dying to go there forever and my friend Tracy decided she wanted to celebrate her birthday by having a bunch of friends go and craft.  I had so much fun! 

I made this door hanger

Most of us who went and our finished products.  I'm already planning a return visit.  If you live in NWA - you need to grab some friends and plan a visit.  It's fun and you get something cute for your house (or make an awesome Christmas gift)!

Our week has been crazy busy.  I feel like I'm just running around like a goose.  But it's been a good week.  Tuesday the girls got WAY overdue haircuts.  Nothing major - just good trims and shape ups.  Hollis finally has her bangs grown out.  I thought she looked so sweet here.

Tuesday night we went to Harper's first parent/teacher conference.  I cried a bunch in the conference. But only for good reasons.  Harper is doing so good.  She had high scores on everything and is right where she should be.  Knowing how she has struggled with her hearing, this is a HUGE answer to prayer.  I know it's going to get more challenging in the future but for now we are taking it one day at a time.  That's all you can do - it's useless to worry about the future.

I am back working and it's just part time but it feels almost like full time when I pack everything else in.  The job is a good opportunity and I enjoy who I'm working with.  I work in the office four days a week.  Wednesday I worked until I picked the girls up from school.

Then we raced to Fayetteville where Harper had speech.  Her therapist always has the most creative crafts and games to do while she works on things with Harper.  And she always has an extra set for Hollis which I appreciate so much.  It's not easy dragging a little sister to so much therapy but we make it work.

We grabbed dinner in the car and ran to AWANA at church.  Hollis got to hold the AWANA flag in my room.  I do the music and games with the preschoolers.  It's fun but I'm so tired when I get home. But I love that my girls are learning Bible verses and they love it.  But it makes for a long day.  We get home at 8 and then rush to get everyone in bed.

Today Harper had her very first field trip.  The best part was she FINALLY got to ride a school bus.  She has been waiting forever! I swear they could just put the kids on a bus and do a joy ride around town and come back home and the kids would be thrilled to death.  They spent all day at the pumpkin patch.  Hollis and I went for a little while.  It was fun to see Harper with her class.

My little pumpkin.  She can't wait until the day she gets to go to kindergarten.

Tomorrow night we have a fall festival at Harper's school (after school and speech in Fayetteville).  But Saturday I may not get out of my pajamas.  And someone needs to clean my house. ha! 

Hope your week has been great!
