The Neighborhood Halloween Gang!

The girls had an absolute BLAST trick or treating with all the neighborhood kids! They actually ran from house to house and it was adorable to watch!! Definitely had a sugar high that night!

Our First Arizona Halloween!

Woo Hoo.....we don't have to worry about needing a jacket on Halloween in AZ! The weather was perfect for Trick or Treating in our new neighborhood! We decided to make a switch in costumes for the actual day! Check out the Spooky Witch & Sweet Butterfly and the Witch and Cats dad made for our outdoor decor this year!

Sweet Butterfly & Perfect Peacock!

Trunk or Treating/ Costume Contest

Pony Rides

Windgate Ranch Fall Festival

We absolutely LOVE our new neighborhood! We have an awesome activities coordinator that plans all sorts of fun events. The Fall Festival was so much FUN. Baby Jim & Lor Lor joined us for the day! We enjoyed a blow up bouncy train, petting zoo, pony rides, games, obstacle course, pumpkin patch, hayrides and costume contest! Emma was a little upset that she and Ava did not win. You know they DEFINITELY had the best costumes! Mom & Dad joined in for the Trunk or Treating and decorated dad's Mini Cooper like a big mouth with a Red tongue! You had to put your hand in the mouth to grab your candy!

Neighborhood Halloween Party!

We have landed in the BEST neighborhood and have the most wonderful neighbors that have quickly become our good friends! John & Katherine Young and their adorable boys William & Charlie had an awesome halloween party that even included a game truck for the kids! The girls LOVED doing Wi Dance with the neighborhood kids and the grown ups loved dressing up, some yummy beverages and visiting with our neighbors! Gma Lor Lor & Baby Jim joined us and took the kids home so the parents could stay out a little later! Best thing about the late night......we could just walk home!

Our Sweet Little Pumpkins!

Gma Nancy in Arizona

We were so happy Gma Nancy was the first to visit us in our new house! It was so wonderful to have her here for an entire week :) We decorated....ordered new furniture (thanks for our new headboard mom & dad)....went hiking and even took her to our favorite spot in Cave Creek....the Buffalo Chip for some bull riding!!! My favorite time was getting up in the morning when Gma was already awake and enjoying a cup of coffee with her outside! The weather was finally cool and we loved relaxing, talking and taking in the breathtaking views of the McDowell Mountains from our backyard! We love you G-ma Nancy....come visit us again soon!

Fall soccer is here!

Ava & Emma are both so excited Fall soccer has begun! Especially Ava since this is her first season and she's FINALLY old enough to play. She's so cute on the soccer field as she is eager to get after the ball and will play the entire game (i mean doesn't want to sit out) with a HUGE smile on her face :) Big sister Emma's having fun this season too. She's getting more ball contact and seems a little more into the game! Go Superheros!!!
