raggedy ann-halloween 2009

This year for Halloween we made a couple of stops! First we went to Grant's mom and dad's house. They had a whole bag full of treats waiting for her. Then we walked down the street to Nana's house (Grant's grandmother). Macie got a bag of candy there too! I'm a little surprised that she was into the candy this year. After Nana's we went to Forney where my Aunt Sherry lives. She always has a huge Halloween party. Her neighborhood always goes "All Out" for Halloween. Macie loved passing out the candy more that going from house to house trick-or-treating. She loved looking at all Sherry's decorations and playing with William and Josh. At the beginning of the night, we could not get her to wear the hat/wig! She was not going to have it!!! Then at Sherry's she saw that other children were dressed up and she decided to have her picture in it!

night of the great pumpkin

Last night we carved the pumpkin that we got at the Pumpkin Patch. At first Macie didn't want to have anything to do with it. She kept saying "nasty" and would just watch us. After a few minutes she got a little more brave. Her favorite thing was stirring the bowl of pumpkin guts. After getting the inside of the pumpkin cleaned out, Macie had to go straight to the bathtub! Grant gets all the credit for the design and the carving job! After she got out of the tub, we turned all the lights out and let her see the finished product. She didn't like that too much! Overall....a very fun night!

pickin pumpkins

Yesterday we made our second annual trip to the pumpkin patch on Houston Street with the Malys. As usual, the girls are so cute and funny! Macie searched for the pumpkin with the LONGEST stem, while Grant searched for the BIGGEST, PERFECTLY ROUND pumpkin in all the patch! I think Macie is already taking on a few of her Daddy's traits! We eventually found the perfect pumpkin to carve and the longest stemmed small one for Macie!

Enjoy the pictures!!!

state fair

Sunday we braved the weather, and took Macie on her first trip to the fair. We came in the gate by the Midway. Macie couldn't take her eyes off the big rides. We walked around and looked in all the exhibits. It was a little cool, so we tried to stay inside as much as we could. A couple of times we got caught up in Oprah's entourage! Grant got to see her, but I'm too short!!! I wish I would have remembered to take a picture by Big Tex, but it was so crowded that we were just trying to keep moving. All in all, we had a great time!!!

Macie loved looking at the animals!
