American Girl hits Dallas
The fun has just begun...only the fourth store to open in the country and American Girl landed right here in Dallas this month. So without a second thought, Daddy loaded up his three girls and drove us to the land of awwwww!

For the first time, the girls and I beamed over beautiful dolls and bazillion of accessories. We literally were in the land of Oz. For those of you who do not have little girls I'm sorry you have to be bored with today's post. But Mommy's this place is just as fun for you too. We observed other girls getting their dolls hair done in the store hair salon. They also had custom high chairs so they could eat with in the bistro upstairs. After examining every inch of the store and playing with all the display dolls and accessories, we finally left about two hours later. Even though we did not purchase a doll, we definitely scored with Coconut, a high chair, an American Girl Dallas T-Shirt...

and, Elizabeth on Sissy's Christmas list! :-)

Fall Fun Continues
If you haven't noticed by now, we are BIG Halloween fans.

Look I'm still posting about it and it's over already! I mean who really visits two pumpkin patches, has fall pictures taken, buys nine pumpkins, builds a haunted house and dresses up themselves? We do!

Hubby and I attended a Halloween costume party and guess who we dressed up as?

I made hubby's shirt and the collar, sleeves and buttons on the front of mine. Since I couldn't find saddle shoes anywhere in my size I made my own with black felt. But of course you can't see those in the picture.

The girls dressed up as Barbie cheerleaders during our neighborhood "Monster Mile". The kids walked along the main street while folks from the HOA passed out candy. They had lots of characters like, Spiderman, Strawberry Shortcake, Elmo, Cinderella, Minnie and Mickey Mouse, etc.
Then there was our Trick or Treat night where hubby and I set up a haunted house that included two rooms and then into our garage. We had some friends dress up as scary monsters in the haunted house, LOUD scary music, multiple fog machines, and tons of strobe lights. If anyone made it all the way through the haunted house into the garage then you had to reach in a large bowl full of spider web to get your candy. Now it doesn't look that scary because the pictures were taken during the day, but trust me the neighbors are still talking about it. We had a blast!

Our neighbors were just as festive by dressing up in costumes and setting up a tent at the end of the block. They had Kool-Aid for the kids, Swamp Punch for the adults and lots of snacks, candy, and cupcakes. The cake in the picture was called Kitty Litter Cake. It really did look like kitty litter with all those tootsie rolls buried in there! :-) The last and I promise final picture for Halloween was my Blog-O-Lantern this year. Sissy wanted to carve a Minnie Mouse so that's what we did.

Phew, now it's time to get ready for Thanksgiving!
